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

Visited this place on a Saturday morning for coffee and cake whilst in Ironbridge. We sat at a table upstairs and ordered we were then invited downstairs to pick our cake . Cakes consisted of two very dry looking Danish? and a bought in chocolate cake, so we declined. Coffee when it arrived was strangely strong but tasteless! Cannot comment... More

Would definitely not recommend this restaurant. Was given 2 half glasses of flat cola and the waiter only grudgingly changed them for 2 more that were just as bad. We ordered from the specials board, a minted lamb burger and a mousaka. The burger was tasty but came with half a dozen chips and a salad swimming in balsamic dressing.... More

We ate at the Olive Tree while spending a family day in Ironbridge We initially found it while looking for a café that overlooked the bridge, it is a well presented venue with a fantastic terrace with a view of the bridge. Following our drinks and a lovely slice of coffee cake we made our way into Ironbridge for a... More

We had booked a table at the Olive Tree because Sunday night in Ironbridge looked a little short on eating places. The restaurant was not busy, perhaps 6 or 8 covers, with a few drinkers outside on the scenic patio. We were not looking for a high class establishment and the Olive Tree was very unpretentious and delivered on all... More
