We stopped here for lunch and beer based on a recommendation from our rafting guide at Wild Water Adventures (also highly recommend) and were pleasantly surprised with the food. My sister had the chicken club, my fiance the butter chicken, and I had the ginger beef and each of us thought it was the best meal out of our trip to Canmore/Banff. They had a selection of local beers on draft which were decent. They also had a pool table that another family was using. This place has a different vibe than the touristy parts of Banff which was welcomed, wish I could have come back for beers later that night.

The Golden Taps is a great place to go for food or just drinks and fun. It has a good range of beers and other beverages.

The pub has a free pool table and the staff are friendly.

It can get pretty lively depending on the day and time of year.

Just had dinner in this bar. Friendly staff, good food, great music and a nice selection of beers. Worth a stop if you're spending a night in Golden.

Sat outside on the raised patio on the opposite side of the sidewalk, so did not see much of the inside, but was really pleasant on a summer evening and the traffic going by was very light. Really good selection on the menu which made it very hard to choose something and our group of 5 all really enjoyed our meals. Good selection of beers too. Service was good from our server, food took a little while to come, but I always view that as a good thing as it generally means it is being made fresh.

We came here for dinner. We waited for at least 40min after having ordered our food, when the waitress finally came back and said she forgot what we ordered. What made it worse was, that she didn't seem to be very sorry about it either.
After we finally got our food, we didn't see her anymore and someone else came out instead, who was a bit nicer.
The food itself was okay. We both had burgers. My husbands burger had part of the stem of a tomato in it...really not okay! The rest of the burger and the fries was fine though.
We had two beers as well, which were good.
All in all, I would not recommend this place for going for dinner.
