We tried this pub having driven past it a few times whilst visiting Legoland for a long weekend.
The ordering system was effective.
The food as very good with good veggie options also available.
The staff were very friendly and efficient on pick up.
This was still at the tail end of COVID so sitting inside wasn't an option.
The beer garden looked very pleasant and was very busy.
We’d definitely look forward to another visit in the future.

Having visited on quite a few occasions in the past pre C19 I am making this comparison with regard to the food only , since the staff and establishment are coping admirably with the regulations currently in place. It was lovely to see so many people confident enough to venture out and support the industry. The meal commenced with a starter , good quality and ample. The main courses however left something to be desired. If you are a meat or pie eater you get an absolute plateful , however the 2 vegetarians in our party had extremely small portions ( do we eat less even though we have different tastes?) and apart from fried fish and chips there was no fish such as salmon or seabass on the menu. The vegetable curry whilst tasty was meagre and dry and could have been accompanied by a chutney and pitta to enhance it. I realise that businesses are having to gear up to running at full pace again but the public still have high expectations so hopefully the Golden Retriever can get back to its previously high standards soon.

It was rather disappointing experience apart of service from a waiter.
My burger was definitely “killed” , black and dry and I have doubts it was a Wagyu beef after having a bite. Left it all on the plate .
My partner had beef bourguignon which was dry and the only thing we could taste was a rosemary.
My friends were not impressed either.
Waiter was attentive and friendly. Good service overall.
In regards to COVID - none of us was asked about details or to scan NHS QR code.

The Golden Retriever is one of the nicest pubs we've visited in ages! A beautiful setting, the inside looks great so we can't wait to be able to sit inside! Really friendly service, I had the wrong drink brought out and it was immediately sorted, no issues. Food was great, thanks for great service with a smile & a laugh Nikki!
