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

Went there for Sunday lunch with two friends. Proper old English Country pub, but with a twist, in that it provides excellent food; an extensive menu with many specials; and very decent portions. Went for a walk round Virginia Water, then went back to the Rose and Olive Branch and had tea with nice desserts from the menu. We will... More

Fab food, good service, and lovely traditional warming puddings. All in all a good experience, hope to return soon! I had the chicken and mushroom classic pie, tasted lovely. Others had the Salmon wellington and Lamb mint and orange, also complimented how good theirs tasted too.

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.
