Very very tasty and something for everyone on the menu. I just wish it was on my doorstep. I love to eat out and have food better than we have... More

Booked an evening meal with friends at the Olive Branch having heard very good reports. It lived up to all our expectations. Excellent food well presented. All staff were very pleasant, cheerful and extremely efficient, more importantly they remained unobtrusive throughout the courses but appeared whenever we finished. We are planning a return visit when in the Rutland area next.

A family get together,beautiful garden and setting. Small bar, good menu and professional service.Everybody well satisfied and quite impressed with the meal. No one held back and real quality costs so £45 ahead not unreasonable ,some might say,others might disagree.

My family, cousins and partners came together here for a reunion lunch where we discovered that the Barn Private Dining Experience is the perfect venue. We were a party of 18 people who had travelled from Oxford, Birmingham Sheffield, Derby, Boston and North Carolina. We dined banquet style and were able to chat comfortably in the well appointed room. The... More

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.

Never had a bad meal at The Olive Branch but very disappointed tonight! Waited for our mains for too long! 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
