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.

What a great place to have some really delicious food. You do pay a bit extra but you certainly get fantastic quality in return. The food is made with love and care and making the most out of the local produce- this shines through! Fab selection of ales and wines, and the staff are really knowledgeable and attentive.

We've been here a few times , but I'm wondering about bothering again. It's a place you want to go and have enjoy something that little bit better, somewhere where the staff pay that little bit more attention, and where you leave feeling you've had value for money, as it's nit the cheapest. So here's the but. Why is it... More

The place has a very good atmosphere. The staff are professional and the food extremely tasty and well presented. If you prefer to people watch the bar tables are ideal, although the through traffic may become distracting. Good choice of beer and a wine lovers dream, choice is vast. If you want to run a foodie pub, this is the... More
