Nice pub, good wine, good beers, open fire, friendly staff. Club sandwich was ok, bit too much bread. Having said this would return and try something else on the menu.

Lovely pub in Horsham, not too far from the main commercial district and shops. Sat there with a couple of friends and had a drink under the lovely sun. Even though it was a bank holiday weekend, the place was not packed and the atmosphere was relaxing. I liked it. More...

This is a great place to have a drink any night of the week. There is great outdoor seating for summer times. Staff are very friendly and you don’t have to wait too long to be served. There is a decent selection available in terms of drinks. They are also dog friendly so that is a big bonus. More...

The reason for 4 stars is because the service was a little slow and it wasn't full and I wasn't sure whether one of the waitresses was being slightly rude or it might have been her sense of humour! Food was lovely

Can't rate this pub highly enough. Took my fussy in-laws for a birthday dinner and they demolished everything. Service is second to none and food is amazing! ! Hope to be back very very soon!!! The landlord came and had a chat and welcomed us and I personally haven't seen that on any other local pubs. Personally I would rate 20/10!!!! More...

S
30 September 2018

The only reason I have not given the food at The Olive Branch is because the food took nearly an hour to come, however I do believe this was a one off, the staff were highly apologetic and when the food did come it was really high quality, amazing taste, great ingredients and what i really liked was that you can watch the Chef cooking. It was plain to see he took pride in his art. More...

Just take a look at this tender, beautifully presented pork belly, cooked to perfection. This pub is consistently delivering very high quality meals. There is a beautiful open fire with what must be the largest hearth in the Horsham area. The staff are very pleasant but sometimes a little distant:- they have made mistakes with the orders the last 2 times I've visited but they were quickly rectified and it didn't affect the overall experience negatively. This review only covers the day time dining experience I can't comment on the night life... I can definetly recommend this place for dinner and would place it amongst the top 5 places to eat in Horsham at the time of writing. More...

Lovely, cosy pub. Roaring fire throughout the winter and really great, great food. The burger is especially yummy.Massive selection of Badgers ales on tap, and even more bottled. Loads of seating inside, and a good outdoor area too with sun umbrellas and heater thingsQuite pricey, both for food and drinks, but worth it; probably one of the nicest pubs in the area More...

We turned up last Sunday on the off chance we would get a table and even thought they seemed very busy they fitted us in. There was a wait for the food but that's to be expected with somewhere that was as busy Plus they don't use a microwave to cook everything .

I have always enjoyed The Olive Branch during winter, they usually have a fire going and the whole place reminds you of an old style English Pub, but with out the dirty bar stools and wet dog smell. A good place to sit and chat up with friends without it being too loud. Staff have always been polite and friendly. More...
