The Golden Retriever
Nine Mile Ride, Bracknell, Berkshire, RG40 3DR 01344 868535
We’ve got everything you need from a country pub near you.
There is some speculation surrounding the origin of The Golden Retriever, with the original building predating planning legislation. It is believed that the original site, which was said to be a forester’s cottage dating back to 1841, was later developed into dog kennels (hence our name!).
But over the course of the last 16 years, while keeping to the original, rustic farmhouse-style, we’ve even created our own local traditions, including our annual Ale and Music Festival. During the festive season, we also made history with the only glass bottle Christmas Tree in the county!
From delicious sandwiches to sensational light bites, as well as our fantastic pub classics and fresh roasts on Sunday, you’ll be able to enjoy a range of dining experiences in our charming country pub nestled right at the edge of the 100-acre Swinley Forest.
Our menus are full of hearty favourites and country pub classics, as well as our seasonal spring dishes, and we’ll be ready with a well-stocked bar, including cask ales, fine wines and British gin to suit very taste - which will taste all the better when enjoyed either in our beautiful gardens or by our crackling log fires.
Planning your Christmas celebrations? Our chefs have created special menus for Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and during the festive period for you and loved ones to enjoy. Take a look here and book your table for Christmas today.
We look forward to welcoming you!
