After looking on tripadvisor to see where to eat in Lichfield, we decided to try the Olive Tree and were not disappointed. Excellent Food, a warm welcome and a nice atmosphere. Looking forward to our next visit.

For what you get including the service, the price is ridiculously low. This little place looks nothing from the outside and is simple but tastefully decorated inside. But the menu is superb. The waitresses were really friendly and the food from the 'express' menu did what it said on the tin. Rapid service but by no means substandard. Seriously enjoyed... More

The food was amazing, beautifully presented and delicious... More
