I had the chocolate truffle for desert which were... More

This is a lovely place. Like all good things, when you receive a recommendation you are generally onto a good thing! The Olive Branch was recommended by a friend as a nice family restaurant, and they weren't wrong. The food was excellent, with a lovely ambience. The service was attentive, kind and excellent. The waitress took a real shine to... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our meal in this cosy, local restaurant. The service is fast and efficient, in fact we could almost have done with a little more time to settle in before the food started to arrive! It's simple, tasty fare with a nice choice for all three courses and, I believe, the desserts are all homemade. From previous visits... More

Staff really had time for us, explaining what the dishes were. We went for the Olive Branch special which was a shared meze for starters, which was gorgeous. We then had a shared... More

It was mouthwatering and just beautiful.... More

Maybe a one-off as new years eve but we were elated to manage to book a table for three earlier in December as we felt sure that everywhere would be sold out. Expected a cosy intimate evening but arrived and the table was not ready. Fine, these things happen but there's nowhere to stand and no apology was offered. We... More

Third visit to this little restaurant which is within walking distance of where we live. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive, and the decor was lovely, especially the Christmas decorations and sparkly lights. The wine was good. Also, when we asked to move tables from the centre of the room (because it was our wedding anniversary and we... More
