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

Always try and fit in a visit here when coming home. Friendly staff, lovely ambiance with log fire, real ale and delicious food - everything I want from a pub.

For our third year running we had lunch at The Olive Branch. This restaurant continues to consistently serve high end food and the menu on New Year Day was exceptional. I opted for the wild mushroom florette with breast of pigeon foIlowed by sea bass with tempura prawn special. I will mention at this point that it was sold as... More

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.

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).
