Had a really lovely meal at the Rose and Olive Branch on Thursday 17th Aug, when my wife and I decided the night before to reserve a table, as we hadn't been there for quite some time. They have a good selection of food on their menu to suit most tastes,and nice beers on tap. . The staff are friendly... More

Enjoyable night with friends in the Virginia Water area with a meal at The Rose and Olive Branch. I am specially fond of the steak, guiness and stilton pie.

Visited the Rose & Olive Branch for the first time and had an excellent meal. My husband is Coeliac and had a good choice from the Gluten free menu, including puddings. The Cotswold chicken pie was delicious and the Lemon Meringue Pie was probably the best I have ever tasted. The staff were also very friendly and polite Would definitely... More

My husband , daughter & myself called in here on Saturday 26th April for lunch as we had read the online menu & thought it sounded very much our sort of food. How wrong can you be about a place? As soon as we walked through the door our first impression was that we must have come to the wrong... More

We go to this restaurant about once a month or so. The staff are excellent and the food is always good. The "Pies" are their speciality and are of a size that my husband and I can share it!! We would recommend this to any one who wants a good meal with a good appetite. We would advise that you... More

Being a recent new dog owner, I googled 'dog friendly, virginia water' and was surprised and delighted to 'find' this pub on the doorstep after only, oh, 18 years of spending weekends in the neighbourhood! What an oversight. We were a party of five plus toddler - I wouldn't say we are picky eaters, but between us we do have... More

My family and I have eaten here many times since 2007. Their homemade pies are TRULY homemade and the selection of pies is larger than any other menu I've seen. My favorites are the venison, red wine and chocolate and the lamb, mint and orange pies. My husband loves the steak, guinness and stilton pie. If you aren't crazy for... More
