Fantastic

Finally visited after 2 years of saying that we will. It exceeded our expectations across the board - the atmosphere was great, cosy and comfortable, the food was gorgeous and fresh and the service was spot on. We will absolutely be back.

I visited here on the recommendation of a friend and I was not disappointed. The waitress pointed out that they had a meal deal on; any two courses for £12.95. As the majority of the mains were £12.95 or over on their own this was great. They even put the sharing platters in the deal which is rare. The food... More

Just love this place... Lovely staff, nothing too much trouble, friendly, attentive and competent! Food is fresh, well cooked healthy and delicious! Great choices of wines none of which are over priced, it's so nice to go to restaurant where I can drink my favourite wine without been ripped off! Well done olive branch just how it should be done!!

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)

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
