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.

Thank for the delicious food. Very kind staff. Highly recommend!
Apparently I've been here before but I don't remember, so it must've been good.
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...
Such a lovely place to drink and relax, staff are friendly and owners are fantastic
Nice welcome from the staff
Served a mighty fine burger, and they had a really good singer on when we visited. Friendly staff, even when they were left hanging around waiting for us to sup up at the end.
Nice food good selection
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...
Lovely garden and great atmosphere
Fab food and staff.
Went for a Sunday Roast. It was brilliant. Massive portions and good value for money. The staff were friendly and knowledgable and very helpful. Our 3 year old was made to feel very welcome and her view on the food was 'Good Chips and lovely Ice cream'I will be going back soon! More...
First time we have eaten here and I understand it is under new management although I don't know for how long. Food was very nice. Staff attentive but not intrusive. Will eat there again. More...
A lovely pub with friendly staff, good beers and decent food. Occasional live music and events in the lovely beer garden. Highly recommended.
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
Nice pub in town. Very lively on nights when they have live music which is great. Lovely seating area outside to enjoy warmer weather.
Really friendly service
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...
Friendly staff with ample seating inside and out and more importantly, they are dog friendly! Great place to chill with the whole family.
Went with my partner and Grandson, the staff where great, The roast was lovely and my grandson realy enjoyed his Chips. Will be going back.
Had a great roast and mum loved it.Staff are friendly and always smiling will definitely go again.

Excellent Christmas work meal
Very festive with an abundance of fairy lights , xmas trees and decorations, a large roaring fire and a female singer singing mainly 1970s disco music. This old, pretty and characterful pub was very lively and packed with people caught up in a festive mood. More...

Amazing Roast. Impossible to park though! Great service and very friendly staff.

Really good quality food & portions very cozy atmosphere
Fabulous food, charming venue and pretty seating. Slightly playful and unprofessional staff (with each other) but largely efficient to customers. 1 missed order but quickly rectified upon notification. Returning in near future to sample and reevaluate. More...
Brilliant food you pay for what you get I didn't think it was over priced for the quality
I can recommend the Sunday roast very highly!
Lovely staff, especially Alice! Brilliant roast dinner and can't wait to be back ❤️
Nice friendly place. Nicely laid out decor wise
Great for food
Lovely warm atmosohere with roaring open fire and staff were friendly although evening menu doesn't have much choice if you want food.
Food was excellent, service was fine. Only negative for us was a very sticky table.
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...
Staff were friendly.lovely atmosphere
One of my favourite pubs in Horsham. Great food, beer and friendly staff. Includes a large open outside area that is perfect for those warmer days. Also dog friendly!
Fabulous Sunday lunch, friendly and attentive staff and excellent value for money. We will definitely be back.
We have visited this pub for Sunday lunch a few times now.The service is consistently good .The roast dinners always tasting lovely and good value. All I can say is give it a try you will enjoy it. More...

Lovely Sunday lunch
Gastropub style, went for Sunday lunch, music a bit load for older patrons but food good, manager friendly staff polite.
Lovely interior, good service just slightly over priced.
Great Pub. Sadly didn't have time to try the food. Very friendly bar staff.
Great food, attentive staff, lovely atmosphere.
Great food plenty of it aswell!! Will recommend a visit you wont be disapointed.
Nice place . Free parking if you come early. Tesco 15 min walk
Quite a good place to start the night, live music or entertainment at weekends. Pretty good place to hang out and lots of outside seating perfect for summer.
Excellent experience on my birthday. Yummy food and lovely staff. The 3 waiters even sang me happy birthday when they brought my pudding Not very busy in the restaurant area which meant there was a relaxed atmosphere.
Excellent place to visit, cosy winter fire. Food was actually brilliant, our party of friends were very happy. Thank you to the staff on shift.
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...
Met friends for after work drinks, place was busy, but service was a bit slow a took a while to get noticed. nice atmosphere and averagely priced. will have to try again.
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...

Food and atmosphere make for a perfect Sunday afternoon.
Good food and drink
Great food and atmosphere. Young waiting staff really need just a very small bit of training to make it perfect
The food and service were exceptional. A very busy pub with a pleasant atmosphere.
Was a lovely evening with close friends. Lively atmosphere, lovely food and attentive Beau, what more could you want?
Delicious food and friendly staff. Unfortunately we waited nearly an hour for our meal to arrive and afterwards our bill was incorrect. Was a shame as it is a lovely gastro pub. I'm sure it was a one off and I would definitely return and would recommend to friends. More...
Excellent experience on my birthday. Yummy food and lovely staff. The 3 waiters even sang me happy birthday when they brought my pudding
Not very busy in the restaurant area which meant there was a relaxed atmosphere. More...

We had a lovely experience with nice friendly staff
A great Sunday roast with all the trimmings.Good sized portions, good selection of beers and wines.Prices reflect the quality of the food. 1 star deducted for one of bar staff calling me mate, "Hello or Hello Sir" is more appropriate. More...
Excellent what more do I need to say.
Great people awesome location beer is a little more expensive then other places in town. Otherwise love it.
Dog friendly, child friendly, lovely food at a reasonable price, clean, friendly and helpful staff... What more could you want?!
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 to say it was the best roast dinner I've ever tasted and I can be picky. I really can't wait to go back for another one. More...
A great pub, a good range of drinks and a pleasant atmosphere
Nice little bar/restaurant, food was really good, service was excellent. A little on the pricey side but the interior is lovely with a very nice, big, open fire. Perfect for a chilly winters evening meal. More...
Delish menu options. Have eaten here a couple of times now and we have both been delighted. If you go away hungry from here you would be really hard to please. Don't forget to check out the specials board here. More...
Went for an impromptu lunch on a Sunday afternoon with my dogs. Andy, a waiter, was very helpful when I asked about an extra portion of meat for my dogs. He was friendly, helpful & gave great service. Food was tasty & just the right amount. Thanks Andy! I will go there again soon. More...
Lovely pub in a great location , sit outside by the water features and watch the world go by. Sunday lunch was premium quality, staff are friendly and attentive.
Great food, wait for food can be a while when they are busy
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...
Great big Sunday lunch portions, lovely pub and takes reservations.
Ate from the set menu. Good portions for the price and the service was excellent.
