Very enjoyable Sunday lunch

Three of us called in for Sunday lunch (or rather we had booked ahead following the reading of excellent reviews). There is an extensive menu - and the chef must love pastry cooking, as there are separate boards of menus for all their Wellingtons (including of course Beef), Pies (we chose three... read more

We decided to eat here on the recommendation of some friends of my mothers. The food was good but not excellent, The first ale I had was a good Timothy Taylor Landlord but the second half had to be a Greene King IPA. Coming from Bury St Edmunds, I feel this pub suffers from being under the "direction" of the... More

We've eaten here several times and always found it enjoyable, but this latest visit fell flat somehow. Perhaps we hit the place on a bad night - we don't come often - but every course and the service lacked the sparkle of a four out of five review. We started with the mussels, green lipped served in the half shell... More

This pub has as a very varied menu with great vegetarian options. We've eaten there on many occasions and it never disappoints. Highly recommended. Very friendly service and food cooked "in house". Great for lunch or an evening meal.

Stopped off here after a train trip out to Virginia Water and a cycle around. We had a nice cold beer and a bite to eat in the beer garden. Relaxing, friendly staff and very tasty pies. I had the rabbit pie which was very good!

We dropped in for lunch, with the dog, while walking in the area nearby - the first time we had been to The Rose and Olive Branch since we were RHC students thirty years ago. The service was friendly and the food was great - really good value. Thoroughly recommended!

This is the second time i've eaten here. The food today was great, lovely Cotswold chicken wellington, and the staff so friendly and accommodating. We arrived late but weren't rushed. We had two children with us and not only did they have a good childrens menu but also offered to do any desserts offered in small portions. A very relaxed... More

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
