Forth visit over the past year. Thing for me here is that you get the relaxed atmosphere of a pub with the service and food in line with a very decent restaurant. I go for evenings as I know lunch can get hectic. You can find some belters in the bin end wine collection.

Attended as a guest in the function room. Beautiful surroundings, very comfortable. Excellent service, food was amazing, old traditional building, would definitely recommend.

Having read so many great reviews about this restaurant I was eager to visit again and so booked in for Sunday lunch on my wife's birthday. The place was busy, as expected, when we arrived 10 minutes before our table was due but it was disappointing to have nowhere to sit and have a drink before going through. We squeezed... More

This is the third or fourth time we have eaten here which have all been excellent. This time was pleasant but not of the same standard. Service was slow and with predominantly one server, by the time he got around to the last person on the table food was rapidly getting cold. In the past we had bowl of veg,... More

I visited The Olive Branch with three friends for dinner. We actually arrived just before opening time having booked a table. We were made very welcome and seated at our table. The kind staff even served a cup of tea to one of our party. The menu was varied and it was hard to decide what to eat. Eventually, three... More

A wonderful pub serving outstanding food and the best draft Leffe I have had outside Belgium. Make sure you book and don't expect a cheap night out but this pub will not disappoint you for a casual evening or a special occasion (ours was my mums 80th and the staff were great).

Went here for lunch after a recommendation from a friend, really enjoyed the food good flavours and well presented, the staff were polite but at times service seemed a little slow. Was it expensive ? I think marginally yes, but for the meal presented to us on the day I was happy to pay the extra.

A perfect English summers day, midweek and a table booked for just after the lunchtime rush. The table outside under some shade was inviting, and much more appropriate than the one reserved inside. You have to book here as it's always busy. There are signs telling which way to go in the building, it's hard to order a drink if... More

We went as part of a large group and took over the private dining room, there was a lovely ambience and we had our own waitress. The food was of very high quality, probably the best gnocchi I've ever had. Portions are small, a perfect size for me, but a man is likely to still be hungry afterwards

I had my first dinner at The Olive Branch just a week ago, the occasion was a birthday in the family. I don't believe I will find a better restaurant in this category. The looks of the place are rather stripped-down for a restaurant of its rank, very essential and more tasteful than your average fancy countryside pub. The food... More
