We visited for a family get to-together with both adults and children, and the service and food were both excellent.

Last minute booking for a lunch meeting, great food and swift service as requested. Food always hot and never disappoints. Staff are very accommodating and attentive unlike some other eateries close by.

We ate at the Olive Tree on Friday evening, we really just wanted a nice meal for our anniversary but ended up feeling like we were on holiday for the evening. We had such a fabulous time. The entertainment and atmosphere were fantastic but the food is why i'll be returning, perfectly cooked and flavoursome. I would highly recommend it... More
