Welcome to Our Country Pub and Restaurant
Welcome to the Olive Tree, a country pub and restaurant specialising in fish and seafood, and set deep in the Surrey countryside, yet just a few minutes drive from Guildford, Woking, the A3 and the M25.
We are Gill and Rupe Ponsonby, and we have been in the pub and restaurant business in the Guildford area for over 20 years and have built a reputation for consistently good, high quality food - good pub grub, but much more, too - and we have a long-standing, faithful and regular clientèle to bear this out.
We have a large bar area to eat in and a soft seating area by our open fire, as well as a a comfortable dining room, and a patio area.
We use only the highest quality ingredients in our restaurant and our emphasis has always been on using locally-sourced produce wherever possible.
Over the years, we have built up a good relationship with our suppliers: meat from Fulk Brothers of Pirbright, Surrey - fish and seafood delivered daily straight from boats in the West Country and also from Billingsgate, and our fruit and vegetables are delivered fresh every morning from Surrey suppliers.
Our Pub and Restaurant Menus
Our menus - both the pub menu and the restaurant menu - reflect the seasons, English asparagus in April/early May - simply served with hollandaise sauce. Surrey-reared spring lamb, an abundance of berries in the summer, English apples in autumn, game in winter.
Please have a look at the other pages here for more information about the pub, the restaurant and the menus, and details of how to get here from Guildford, Woking and the A3. We hope to have the pleasure of seeing you soon.
