Great pies

This is a small friendly pub and booking for meals is recommended. The selection of pies is outstanding and the chips are very good.

Food came quickly, starters were moreish and the pies were amazing, you have to go there to eat the pies... wow what a selection, was difficult to choose so we ended up getting two pies and sharing so we could try two different ones...

We were a party of 5 having lunch here last Saturday at 2 o'clock. Good job we prebooked our table as the place was full. Always a good sign as means food must be good and we were not disappointed! Lots of choice of pies, wellingtons and a full menu of other dishes too. I did notice a blackboard full... More

Great place for lunch after a bracing winter walk. The pies are really good, with a wide choice from traditional ones like steak and ale, game and rabbit. Served up with a decent sized baked spud and veggies. Just the thing for a cold day. Greene King beers were fine. Welcome was as warm as the pub.

I was invited to dine there by a friend who lives in Virginia Water, as was astounded by the menu and quality of the food. They also prepare wonderful Vegan dishes, if that's your thing. Not pricey, good helpings and combinations of flavours that are eye-watering.

My daughter was home for the weekend and we wanted to go for a relaxing family lunch. I had never been to the Rose & Olive so was a bit nervous about what to expect. I shouldn't have been. The pub is small but the menu is big. So big that you think it will take ages for the food... More
