Quinno _ left this review about Golden Retriever

Looks decent from the outside (there’s some nice outside seating at front, overlooked by woodland) but in reality it’s like a Chef & Brewer but without the charm. Large rambling interior painted in beige with wood logs filling wall gaps. Selection of papers. Three ales; Doom Bar, Pride and a so-so St Austell Tribute. Cloth-eared wally of a barman did pints on auto-pilot and struggled with concept of halves once pulled-up. A graveyard of good beer pump clips on the beam hint at better days past at the bar. Massive disappointment, pull your finger out M&B.

Looked lovely as I drove past, so I thought I would pop in, not knowing its a vintage Inn. Not really my cup of tea - a barn of an eating area with a typically uninspired menu.

It was functional for my needs of getting something to eat but not worthy of the fine building that it is housed in.

Been here a few times now. We like to claim it as "The BEST place in BRACKNELL" but Wokingham keep trying to steal it for themselves. :-) Whichever way it is a great place to eat, and they know how to look after their ale. Thanks for all the great meals.
