Local friendly pub

I have been going to this pub on and of for 30 years and although it has changed hands a few times it seems to have retained it friendly atmosphere with good reasonable food there are many golf clubs near by and if you want a good food when you have finished playing try this place

We really love the pies here! They also have a gluten free menu and kids menu. The outside space is nice in warmer weather and the staff are always friendly. A bit lacking in ambiance inside with the bright lights and crowded seating

I have been visiting the Rose n Olive Branch regularly for a few years now and the food is always excellent. I have never once been disappointed in any way! I have bought many friends and visitors along and they have been equally impressed. The pub has a fantastic selection of pies and English dishes, as well as vegetarian and... More

The meal here is very poor quality at home made, local produce price! Don't be deceived! The menu has been the same for the passed 20 years! And to be fair - it was the worst pub meal I've eaten in 20 years! Avoid - do yourself a favour and choose a 'real' country pub! I had the 'special menu'... More

Lovely food and a nice atmosphere. Service good even though busy. Bit of a squeeze at each table. Love the fact they welcome dogs

When you order a beef roast and scampi and chips and it arrives in under 3mins, you know it's bad. Reheated, refried and barely edible. We visited this pub after reviews stating its dog friendliness and home cooked food. Yes dogs are welcome and the international staff are friendly, but the carpet is worn, the tables cramped, the interior shabby... More

Googled dog friendly pubs in the area & this came up. Turned up without booking. Even though they were very busy, they were very helpful & found us space. Lovely atmosphere. Lots to choose from the menu & plenty of vegetarian choice. Staff were very friendly & hard working. Locals were also very welcoming & great to chat to. Overall... More

Having taken a walk round the nearby lake we stopped here for early dinner. Despite being fully booked later in the evening they welcomed us (& both dogs) in beforehand. While you are given a menu, the real stars are on blackboards around with various homemade pies, Wellington variants & a heap of vegetarian options. Service was swift & friendly.... More
