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

Amazingly friendly service, good food and a fab atmosphere. Vegetable soup and the local ale worthy of specific mention. Great all round package.

Thank you for ending our night well, we visited a few restaurants on our evening out and the Olive Tree was our favourite & staff were brilliant! 100% recommended! The manager has this place running like clockwork and has built a lovely business & team! Well done!

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.

A sign on the door indicates that they are closed at least until the Spring. Their website states "The Olive Tree Bistro will be temporarily closing while we explore ways to revitalise the business". Doesn't bode well.........

I've visited this restaurant before when on business in the area and the food I've had on every occasion has been exceptionally good (and HOT!). This was no exception - it even made me want to eat the vegetables it was that good! Well worth me walking a mile from my B + B. Thanks for the very friendly welcome... More

Went to the Olive Tree last week and were unaware that it was part of a scheme for 'special needs' employees. But this made no difference to our experience or our enjoyment of the meal. In fact it probably enhanced it. The interior of the restaurant was really well furnished and was very clean. All of our meals were well... More
