Having discovered, through a response to my earlier review by the new owners, that the Golden Pot had changed hands, I booked a return visit with friends on what turned out to be a very busy Tuesday evening in the restaurant. Although the staff to customer ration appeared to be stretching to sat the least, with two people trying to... More

We have lived in the area for just over 36 years and never got around to calling in before. I don't know what it was like before the Take-over and Refurbishment but we can't praise it highly enough now! As a couple that don't venture to restaurants very often you can see how impressed we are as have taken guests... More

We'd spotted this pub from the road the other day and it looked very nice from the outside. So we planned a visit. We'd been to two nearby pubs many a time without ever spotting this one. But would it be any good? The wife stepped in ahead of me and turned to give a wink and a nod. First... More

We went because it was Friday and we were being lazy ! We normally go the Highwayman in Yateley (because they take Tastecard), but we though a change would be good.

This is the first time we have ever visited this pub, we saw it up for sale and then saw it re-open. Every time we went past we always said to each other that we must stop in and see what is was like. Well today was that day, and oh my what a nice surprise. The first initial appearance,... More

Great food and service here, there are new owners who seem keen to please. The pub/restaurant is well decorated and the service is fast and friendly. They had some really nice alcohol free beer which was a welcome surprise and made my evening.

We have just been to the Golden Pot for lunch and had a great burger, best we have had for a while. Having changed ownership, we were concerned that it may not be as good, but all is well. Some of the staff are the same. The décor has been updated and looks fresher and more contemporary. I have read... More

Have lunched at the Golden Pot a few times when in the area but the last couple of times have eaten at the Chequers in Yately.

Had heard that this was under new management and worth a try. There were 3 tables for lunch. We had to wait 45 minutes for a beefburger main course and fish and chips. Rather ordinary pub food. Pleasant staff but had to ask twice for several items and they seemed under pressure so they may have been understaffed in the... More

Whilst the restaurant is now under new management unfortunately they feel they can charge Ritz prices for simple pub grub. Whilst the service was good the food was very average and as already mentioned considerably overpriced. This is very disappointing as we and many others we know had hoped to be regulars but unfortunately our advice to others would now... More

Thank you for your review.
