Very friendly staff and good food in pleasant surroundings. Although hard to tell from outside, the place is a social enterprise run to... read more

Came across this loverly place today, from the front not obvious it was open, but once we walked down stairs we found out it was open. Very friendly staff, great location with a loverly view from the patio, and we enjoyed a loverly snack. We are local, so we will be visiting again soon.

Having left it a bit too late to book, and being on a short break for the Valentines weekend, we phoned around the Ironbridge area, and things looked bleak, every table in town, it seemed, was booked. Purely in optimism we drove into the town, and phoned the first few likely looking restaurants... When the Olive Tree answered, they couldn't... More

We hope that the Olive Tree re-opens at it is the gem in Ironbridge. All profits from this restaurant go to charity. We were totally spoilt here by the staff who are friendly and very amusing. The food was superb and we looked forward to re-visiting many times. sadly on our recent visit we found it Closed down.
