Golden Ball, Pinkneys Green

Stand and deliver your waistband or your life. The Golden Ball, once the hangout of Dick Turpin, is now a stylish gastropub surrounded by lovely walks.

Weekend Escapes
Read our review of Golden Ball, Pinkneys Green

Slip into the finest knee high boots and slap your thigh, we’re heading into Dick Turpin country. The Golden Ball Pub is set in the idyllic village of Pinkneys Green, near Maidenhead, rumoured to be the old stomping ground of dandy highwayman who would hide in the wooded Maidenhead thicket preying on wealthy travellers. Now it is a stylish gastropub with far less daylight robbery (even when served with the bill).

The Golden Ball is the sort of place you can’t stay away from, it’s cosy in the winter, a sunny spot in the summer, surrounded by lovely walks, village cricket and has all the laidback loveliness we crave at the weekends (or any day if the diary will allow it). The chefs here create excellent, regularly changing menus, so you will always find something fresh to tempt your taste buds and Sunday roasts hugely popular.

For those with a special occasion we also have an art deco private dining room which is also ideal for business meetings. If you’re wanting a country pub lunch that suits all ages, tastes with walks and bikes to justify that pud, then this will do nicely.
