Went to The Rose and Olive Branch pub/restaurant with my wife, son and daughter in law during the week before Christmas for lunch. Whilst we were there it was fairly quiet, but it seems to have lost the care factor, and welcoming that we used to feel in the past, especially as the waitress wasn't rushed off her feet. The...

Couldn't resist the venison and chocolate pie at the Rose and Olive Branch! At work, we call this the 'Pie Pub' and we have our annual work outing there every December. Great place!

Lovely little pub with huuuge menu choices including a menu for celiacs and vegetarians, a Wellington menu and encroute menu too. We went for Sunday roast after a long walk with the dog and we're amazed at the amount of choice. I've definitely got to bring my vegetarian fussy mother ! :) Thoroughly enjoyed my roast and will be back... More

This is an old fashioned English country pub. The menu features a large selection of pies with unusual fillings. Service was very good and the selection of beers and wine is good. Well worth a visit.

A friend recommended this place and I'm glad he did as we had a lovely meal. The car park is small, and if you're going on the weekend you should probably book. A great range of pies - probably 9 on offer- and some interesting combinations. I had venison, red wine and chocolate which was amazingly rich but spook tasty.... More

This is a cracking old style pub serving up some pretty fine pies. This was the first time we've been and it was on a recommendation. I had venison, red wine & chocolate pie and the wife had rabbit & pancetta. Mine was really really good. Unfortunately the pancetta pie was quite salty but that's possible due to the pancetta....

They have a good selection of food on their menu to suit most tastes,and nice beers on tap. . The staff are friendly... More
