Just home from a very enjoyable eating experience. There where 5 of us with mains and puddings all of which were cooked, tasty and hot. The service was very friendly and efficient. First time but we will be back.

we visited the Rose and Olive Branch as it had been recommended to us. We ordered a pie each and they were very tasty with a delightful selection of vegetables, cooked to perfection. It was very busy and easy to find with ample parking and a garden for those wanting to eat outside.

My first visit was for a quick midweek lunch but straight away we were made very welcome. A good range of food on offer and from our experience and from what we could see and from the comments of other diners (a lot of obvious regulars), the food is very tasty and plentiful. I've already made a plan with friends... More

This was a planned stop after a leisurely stroll around the lakes at Virginia Water. We arrived a bit early and were offered a drink at the bar while our table was made ready. Like other visitors we were both surprised at the size of the menu but it all surpassed our expectation in that it was 'pub grub' plus!... More

A mid sized and busy pub/restaurant that you can almost miss if you're not looking for it (but well worth stopping for!) A varied menu, plenty of specials coupled with good service and a nice range of drinks makes this an ideal place for a good meal.

Amazingly varied menu which I though may be too much for a smallish pub to handle, but 4 totally different mains all came out perfect! Best value Sunday lunch in the area too, some more starters would be nice though. Lovely historical book about the area located on the bar too.

It's a busy area but this pub retains a nice local atmosphere with good beer and food. Not the cheapest place we've been but it rates a very good. The meals are large and you are unlikely to leave hungry. The pies are excellent. If there is one criticism then it would have to be the extent of the menu.... More

This comes into the homely, cozy and let the world pass you by category. Plenty of options based on 'open' pies topped with puff pastry or 'Wellingtons', but with a good sense of adventure in the fillings-good use of prunes and other fruits to enhance the experience-possibly from the current Romanian influence. If you can get in and get sat... More

This is a great place to take visitors to the UK to sample an English pub. They are famous for their homemade pie and there is a great selection.
