Been here on a few occasions of the back of a recomendation by my Dad. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. They always remember myself and my partner when we walk in. The food is fab and is really good value for money. We have tried a few different things on the menu from the mixed grill to a... More

I love this small, intimate restaurant. Welcome and service is always brilliant and food fresh and tasty. Best to book in the evenings when the atmosphere is buzzing, but I prefer to go for lunch with "the girls". Menu is a bit restricted but there is always something tasty and satisfying and the specials are great! Love it. Margaret (Leeds)

Introduced by my daughter - always been warmly welcomed and enjoy going here for a meal. Nothing is too much trouble, food tasty and homely. Small os can be tight and always advisable to book.

My son decided he wanted to go here for his birthday meal, having been here in February. Once again, the service was excellent, the staff friendly and helpful and the food arrived very promptly. Starters were tasty and were sensible portions. The mains were all well prepared and tasty. The restaurant was full (Friday evening) and there was a nice... More

For main the chicken and beef kebabs were lovely and well presented. Service was very friendly and despite being quiet the atmosphere was good. The pizzas looked nice and will... More

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
