We stayed for the night in 'Double Cream' room. Lovely room, really enjoyed our stay there. Excellent meal with very welcoming staff. Later walked round part of Rutland Water. Barnsdale Gardens are quite near and are very interesting with a good cafe. Also check out the famous hew hedge nearby.

Visited 'The Olive Branch' for the first time today. We sat in the courtyard area as weather was lovely but moved in doors as there was a lot of wasps about. The food was superb and the lunch time set menu was really good value. Good selection of vegetarian choices. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Every mouthful was a real pleasure and treat. The combination of flavours blended superbly. Presentation excellent and all staff welcoming, happy and helpful. Booked as a last minute birthday surprise and could not have had anywhere else in the world such a wonderful meal. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and look forward to the next time. I recommend this to... More

We visited on a Wednesday evening phoning first and we managed to get a table for 6.30pm, the restaurant was fully booked. I can see why! Excellent food and service. 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
