We had a nice lunch, the food was well cooked and of good quality. Not over generous portions but highly overpriced for what was, simple basic food. i think there is a set price menu during the week which may offer a better deal, but we're not local, so not too sure. The service was slow but that wasn't a... More

Just home after another wonderful meal at The Olive Tree. The surroundings, service and quality of food is out of this world...you must visit and enjoy the wonderful family atmosphere.

Fantastic food here, we've just moved to loughton and would definitely be back for another meal. Was told by the waiter that they have live music, which is a nice touch for a special occasion meal. We will book here again!

Went here on a pre booked set menu basis, was a lovely meal and was sat on time, the food was of very high quality standards and the sax player added an extra touch of class!

Went for dinner with 5 people without a reservation. Staff were very friendly. Although the food took 25min+ to come it was delicious! Tried the mixed grill and really enjoyed the lamb chop. Recommend the banana crepe for dessert. Good dining experience - looking at roughly £30/head. Would come again.

Spent 2 hours lunching with colleagues from Suffolk. I booked this and we sat not quite outside. Waiter nicely attentive not overly so. Wine and drinks came up quickly. We had mussels/steak salad/mozzarella starters then mussels/risotto for Mains. Gorgeous food, hot and tasty. No room for dessert. Friends liked it very much. Not too expensive but worth extra. Will go... More
