Service was fantastic from the moment we got there to the moment we left! The food was more like fine dining....but at an amazingly reasonable price. People may walk past this restaurant because it doesn't look very 'fancy' from the outside but my advice is - walk in, don't walk past!

Went for lunch at the olive tree and the food was really good! Was impressed with the speed of the food arriving even though the restaurant was quite busy when we went. The chocolate orange brownie was a particularly good. Would recommend this hidden gem to all!

We had a pleasant meal, in a pleasant restaurant, with pleasant staff and at £11.95 for 2 courses and £14.95 for 3 courses it was not expensive. However, although no complaints as such, we felt that we could have cooked a better meal at home. The restaurant itself had very little atmosphere whilst the whole experience felt a little lacking.... More

Saturday evening for 3 booked on basis of previous reviewers comments. Not disappointed at all. Choice of 2 courses at £12.95 or 3 courses at £15.95 so easy, clean pricing upfront. We all struggled to choose a starter & main as there were too many good options! I went for Fish Chowder, which was tasty & generous in fish. My... More

We had our annual family dinner here and Caroline and her team ensured that it was a success. There were 26 of us and we were accommodated in a room of our own. The kitchen did a great job in getting our meals served all at the same time. Drinks arrive quickly and there was a 'no fuss', 'no problem'... More

I took my mum for lunch on her birthday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great food, nice choice and reasonably priced. The service was good and I would recommend booking a table as it can get quite busy. Will definitely be returning again.

We both ordered the salmon and it turned out to be an excellent choice, perfectly cooked and with a wonderful sauce. The desserts were excellent too. The bill of £20 included coffee. The olive tree offers a very high standard of food at a very reasonable price
