We have created a dining environment with a classic mix of the stylish and the contemporary, within the wonders of one of the City's most historic buildings.Split across three floors, the ground floor and first floor serve as a dining area, whilst the cellar has been transformed into a magnificent cocktail bar area, with the low brick ceilings creating an intimate and relaxing area, perfect for a pre or post dinner drink. Our outdoor courtyard also has seating for up to 40 people, perfect for a bite to eat or a coffee in the sunshine.We aim for this landmark building to once again become synonymous with top class dining in the City of Worcester. We are closed Sundays but available for private hire (Open bank holiday Sundays)

Fantastic meal.. Best steak in town and creme brûlée to die for haven't stopped thinking about it :) and as always top service, considering they'd had a few kitchen issues you wouldn't have known, atmosphere was spot on and couldn't have made my mums birthday more enjoyable.. Top marks from the whole family.. Already planning the next visit!!

Fantastic location, food, ambience and service. Don't be fooled by the slightly underwhelming initial view and approach to the Olive Branch. Inside is a superb setting over 2 floors plus a truly wonderful cellar bar. It is atmospheric and authentic being set within what has previously been a Church. The service was flawless and the food excellent with a wonderful... More

We've know about the Olive Branch for a while but never gone too. It was my wife's birthday and we thought we would try the tapas (5 for £20) for lunch as we had heard good things. We weren't disappointed. We had breads with olive oil and balsamic vinegar while waiting for the tapas, you can't really go wrong with... More

Visited this restaurant on a Saturday evening, the welcome was very good and our coats were taken off us at the door, the main restaurant is upstairs and the service we received was excellent, although at times it felt that a bit too rushed, but they accommodated our requests for more time. The menu was varied as was the drink... More

Looking on-line this place seemed a good choice for an inexpensive lunch as part of a shopping day. It's tucked away and if someone hadn't directed us I don't think I'd have noticed it. We arrived just after twelve on a Saturday lunchtime to be greeted by an empty bar area - no customers, no staff! After a moments wait... More

Dined here for the first time today for Mother's Day lunch. As a group of four we had all heard good reports about the place but we were still amazed by how good the food was - simply delicious. The staff were smart, friendly and attentive - we'll definitely be going back

Ten friends and I had a wonderful birthday meal here. We had to pre-order from the party menu and the choice was great. Everyone said how delicious their meals were and the sizes were very generous. It was great to see the restaurant so busy. Am looking forward to a return visit soon.
