We love going to the Olive Branch. The food's always excellent, the staff terrific - friendly and attentive, and when our grandchildren are with us it's still a great experience. Thank you to everyone at the Olive Branch. Oh, and the prices are very reasonable.

We booked late so ended up sat near the door which was cold and draughty every time it was opened for those leaving or arriving (a outside porch would solve this) but as soon as a table was available we were moved further inside and problem solved. This was an example of how attentive the staff were service was very... More

Visited the Olive Branch with friend on a busy Saturday night. Right from arrival the customer service was first class. We were greeted at the door by staff and shown to our table. Being near the door which was quite chilly the staff unprompted moved us to a warmer spot. It's a small restaurant but has a lovely welcoming atmosphere.... More

We went there for the first time last night . Superlatives-I don't know where to start. The food is superb-beautifully cooked, well seasoned and plentiful . The ambience of the place is great and I can see why so many people coming in were obviously repeat customers. The service was excellent and attentive- nice touches like bringing more bulgur wheat,... More

I don't live far from this restaurant but for some reason or another had never quite made it in. Me and my partner went on a Thursday evening and it was packed! I now know why. From start to finish the service was warm, friendly, attentive but not claustrophobic - I'm not sure why others have suggested the service wasn't... More

Nice food but maybe a bit pricy for the portion size (my side of 'chips' was 5 chips...). The atmosphere and layout is lovely though, feels like you're on holiday. I wouldn't rush back but I wouldn't say no to going again either, it was a nice meal.

Didn't know what to expect but there was no reason for em have a doubt about the quality of food. I had calamari for starting, wow it was amazing, cooked to perfection with the batter extremely light and fluffy! For mains I had Pides with the Turkish garlic pepperoni and mozzarella very much like a pizza but without the tomato... More

Went with friends, ordered the hot starter, great salad, pizza was ok not wow and the chicken Kofta was good. Prawn starter was very small, Overall good food but not value for money. Was charged for water £2 - was not impressed.

We ate here, for the second time. The 2 course meal for less than £13, any 2 courses off the menu is terrific value. After eating our delicious starters, all 4 of us had Sea Bass, it was cooked to perfection, tender and two fillets along with vegetables and potatoes. The waiter was excellent and attentive. We enjoyed the evening... More
