Waited and waited and waited. But had to remind twice that we were waiting. However when food arrived it was excellent and very enjoyable. We went at lunchtime and were there almost 2 hours. Will try again and hope for the best.

Our second visit to The Olive Branch did not disappoint, from the moment we arrived the service was top notch - attentive but not overbearing - every guest who arrived and left had their coats taken and the door opened for them which was a nice touch. The food is so delicious - especially the lamb dishes ( Adana )... More

I have visited this place several times now and have enjoyed everything I've tried. The mix fajita dish is my favourite. Would recommend everyone to try the fajita! Overall a great place with very delicious food and good service. Would recommend them to introduce some Mocktails

As this literally on our doorstep it has taken us quite a while to actually get along and sample their cuisine. What fools we have been. We arrived a little early for our booking but were sat down at our table for 6 in ample time. As it was a Saturday night it was very busy but we had menus... More

Tiny place, wonderful friendly front of house who always recognises me whether there with family, friends or colleagues. Delicious grilled meats, wonderful breads, Baba ghanoush to die for. Starter and main deal 12.95 can't be beaten

We've been meaning to try this local restaurant having tried it's big brother in Alwoodley earlier in the year, which was very good. Although quite small premises we certainly were not disappointed by the quality. We both enjoyed an excellent three course meal with wine and coffee for a little over £50. Service was friendly and attentive and we were... More

A couple friends and I went for an evening meal at this delightful Mediterranean restaurant and were given an immediate warm pleasant welcome by the lovely, polite staff. The service was very quick and the waiters were all very friendly and chatty and highly attentive to our needs- excellent service. The food was presented in a very impressive manner and... More
