Small and friendly, with good food

A warm and attractive restaurant with friendly and attentive staff, busy at weekends. Good choice of well prepared and presented food. with a decent range of wines, and real ale available from the bar. Well worth considering when unching or dining in Woburn

Our visit here was a bit strange. There was next to no atmosphere in a half full restaurant, the staff drifted between being very attentive and completely aloof, the food was tasty enough but the rest of the experience left us feeling a bit cold.

Food is probably 2AA standard, the chef is really trying to make the food taste and look good. I found the portion sizes good, menu varied and overall an enjoyable dining experience. They do allow children into the restaurant after 7pm and if you're looking for a romantic meal, i'd suggest one of the other smart restaurants in the village,... More

Our first time here and we were very impressed. Enormous car park, on arrival you are met by a splendid entrance and very helpful attentive staff. The restaurant itself has excellent decor and the service was very efficient and professional. The starter was one of the best presented dishes I have ever seen and the taste was a true experience.... More

I hope this is the right place for this review as Afternoon Tea isn't actually taken in Olivier's Restaurant but in a lovely lounge area to the side of reception. The door to the hotel was opened by a young man who looked after us for most of the afternoon. Our table was already laid with cutlery and plates and... More

Another lovely lunch at Oliviers today with three friends. Spotless surroundings, glasses, cutlery as expected. Homemade soup today was Leek and Potatoe, hot and delicious. Homemade bread. Had steak today, for a change and it was cooked exactly as requested accompanied by thick cut homemade chips. My only gripe would be at 17.00 for a main course, you shouldn't have... More

Visited Oliviers for lunch with a friend. For our whole stay (some 3 hours) we were the only people in the restaurant which was a little disconcerting and meant that the establishment had zero atmosphere even though the dining room is very pleasant and the staff were extremely attentive. The menu was somewhat short of main meal choices and although... More

My favourite place to eat in Woburn. Food is reasonably priced and is exceptional and the service is first class. The atmosphere is sometimes a little cold, but doesn't detract too much and I suggest finishing with your coffee in the lounge.
