We were at the Olive Branch for a birthday celebration. We had drinks in the very atmospheric bar before having dinner in a lovely private dining room. The food was absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. A fabulous evening in a perfect venue.

We have been before but not since my husband has been diagnosed with coeliacs. We said in advance and they said it would be no problem and it wasn't! A few things were off limits such as pork pie but he could have and did have the most amazing fish and chips with wonderful crispy gluten free batter. In fact... More

After much research chose the Olive Branch as our stopover night as I wanted quality accommodation, great gastro pub food, an overall relaxing enjoyable evening, affordable. It did not disappoint and it is totally charming. We (my husband and 16yr old son - celebrating their birthdays) stayed in Berry Room which was perfect as my son slept in the little... More

Great place to stop to have lunch. Excellent food and great value with a gorgeous cozy atmosphere. The gnocchi was incredibly tasty, definitely recommend it.

Our third visit to the Olive Branch and again we were not disappointed. It was for my fiancee's birthday lunch and on a busy New Years Eve! Delicious food and friendly staff and a lovely surprise was some complimentary petit fours with our coffee on a birthday platter. We will definitely be booking again for my mother's 80th birthday party.

We visited the Olive Branch this December with friends for a special pre Christmas night out, but Im sorry to say it wasnt very festive at all. Hardly a decoration in sight and no real atmopshere. Whilst weve always had great meals here, we knew (from our previous meals) that they must have recently changed chefs, and this was confirmed... More

Surrounded in beautiful English countryside yet near A1. A lovely gastro pub. Food was scrumptious and the service impeccable. Only downside there is no phone signal or wifi!

We had Sunday lunch on a very busy day. We had booked a table for 2pm, were seated promptly but it took ages to get the menu and we had to ask twice to see it. A few things had finished but there was still a good choice, Roast beef was excellent although the whole dish could have been hotter... More

Food was very good, well presented and reasonably priced for the quality. Excellent selection of drinks to match. Staff very helpful - attentive but not intrusive
