Where to eat

The Golden Retriever is a charming thatched pub within the picturesque Swinley Forest in Bracknell. Once a dog kennels (explains the name), this country pub and restaurant has been renovated to a high standard whilst retaining its rural farmhouse-style characteristics, offering elegant cuisine and a great choice of ales and wines. If you manage to find a spot by the log fire, then you’re in for a treat!

Pizza Express is a renowned restaurant chain that serves up possibly the best pizzas in the UK. With ever-changing menus, their pizzas just keep on improving – so enjoy an evening of delicious Italian cuisine in Camberley, perhaps starting with the rustic antipasti platter and ending with the indulgent vanilla cheesecake. 

Set within The Atrium, the entertainment hub of the town, come and enjoy a dinner of Japanese delights at Wagamama. Serving authentic cuisine such as Ebi Gyoza, Beef Tataki and Chicken Katsu, your tastebuds will be tantalised by the wonderful aromatic flavours in every dish!

The Swan Inn is a country pub in Farnborough that has undergone a huge refurbishment and is now an independently run gastro pub offering a menu of locally sourced ingredients. If you visit on the weekend, you’ll be treated to a variety of music such as Jazz, Soul, Funk and Rock from local talents.
