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

We booked a table for 2 at 20-00 at the Olive Branch. We arrived and the restaurant was full, so turning up without a booking is not an option. This was our first time visiting here and we ordered the special. This consisted of a mixed Meze starter followed by a mixed grill (lamb, chicken kebab shish) as well as... More

My wife and two teenage kids took me here for a birthday meal and it didn't disappoint at all. The service was attentive and prompt and the food was delicious. We took full advantage of the Sunday to Thursday offer which gives any starter and any main off the menu for £12.95, which is fantastic value. My wife had mentioned... More

We had decent enough food here, 4 adults and 2 kids. We arrived at 6.25 and were finishing dessert and final glasses of wine at 8.30 when the manager told us that there was a party of 5 waiting for a table, telling us that we should now leave (this is not a restaurant where there are 'sittings'). The service... More

The olive branch was a lovely restaurant and probably one of the best meals that I have had in a restaurant! The food was especially high quality. Everything is served beautifully and tastes delicious! The pricing isn't particularly high. I would say that it had a nice atmosphere however, it the tables slightly too close together. I have to recommend... More

At short notice my partner and I booked a table for two but were not happy with the initial table offered near the door. Immediately we were happily given a table for four with no issue. Clearly the priority at this small but busy Turkish restaurant is high service levels with attentive staff eager to please. As a recently diagnosed... More
