Was taken here today for lunch and it was splendid to say the least. Excellent ingredients cooked by a chef with talent. Service very good which added to the overall experience. 5 star dining at its best.

The food was cold so we sent it back, the front of house was very abrupt and not what I expect from this level of restaurant, our food arrived back warm but had spoilt our anniversary meal. We ordered desert... More

The Olive Branch has been a staple in Clipsham for more than a decade and shows no sign of getting tired. Most recently, we had an excellent Sunday lunch - beef, perfectly cooked with requisite roast vegetables and Yorkshire pudding - but there were several other options that would have been at least as good. Fantastic puddings as well. There... More

This is our second visit and we were impressed again. We arrived slightly late but this wasn't a problem and we had a drink at the bar where our order was taken. We were informed which table was ours and that we could wander through when we were ready. The homemade pumpkin seed bread and herb butter arrived swiftly and... More

I have been looking for a great restaurant in the area for some time and wanted something special for a family birthday. The Olive Branch did not disappoint. The staff were all welcoming and friendly and the food was particularly good. We went for a mixture of the set gourmet menu and the standard menu. There was plenty of choice,... More

Had an amazing lunch there this week. Such creative dishes and amazing flavours. Lovely relaxed setting too. Obviously we're not the only ones who love this place as it was full on a Monday lunchtime. Deserves more accolades. Had not been for some time but will be coming back more often now.

My son couldn't get a table for Sunday lunch as he had left it too late, so he booked for Mothers Day evening and we were really lucky it was not too busy. There was lots of space and we had an area all to ourselves.The food was amazing, the food is all sourced locally and on the back of... More
