Exciting plans to add a horse box bar and an improved outdoors area have been lodged at a pub on the outskirts of Bracknell.

The owners of the Golden Retriever in Nine Mile Ride, Bracknell have applied to make a series of changes to improve the outdoor area.

Perhaps the most exciting part of the change involves adding a new horse box bar to the garden, which punters can buy drinks from as an alternative to the main bar.

An outdoors extension would add to the pub’s existing ‘garden room’, which is a seated covered outdoors area.

Additionally, an existing shed would be removed and replaced with a walk-in freezer, and a new dry store would be installed.

As well as that, adaptations to the car park would add five new parking spaces.

Because of the changes planned, the Golden Retriever's owning company has also had to apply to vary the pub’s premises licence, however details of the licensing variation are lacking.

No changes to opening times have been made though, with the pub closing at 11pm Monday to Saturday and 10.30pm on Sundays.
