It was ok. Food quality was mixed but it was our works Christmas meal out so maybe I need to try once again with fewer numbers. It wouldn't be a first choice as there are better places in Worcester to select from. In my books this would be a second tier venue.

Drink prices vary but on average cocktail is about £8, glass of prosecco £ 6. The quality of food is... More

The service was a bit poor, staff need to slow down and listen. Several drinks orders wrong, meals also wrong even thou pre booked. Tiramisu was nasty but the pork is to die for.

Visited this restaurant with 12 colleagues from work, as a change from the normal Christmas meal. We had the set menu, 2 or three courses. We were quickly seated and it seemed quite busy for a Wednesday lunchtime. My starter of chicken thighs in a white wine and garlic sauce was excellent, the main of pork belly was good, the... More

Visited with my partner last week and with my sister the previous week and both times I shared a tapas selection. The portion size was exceptional as was the quality and the attentive service. This place is a hidden gem between the church and Superdrug and is well worth a visit for food or even just for a drink in... More

During our short stay in Worcester we visited several cafes and restaurants in Worcester and this was by far the best. We had a lunch and an evening meal here and both were excellent. We would certainly recommend the tapas and presently very good value at five for £20. The service was good too, friendly and attentive. We would not... More

We have been to this restaurant a few times but never had tapas. We decided to have a light lunch so 4 tapas between the two of us was just right. We had the sun-dried tomato hummus, halloumi cheese, croquets and a spinach dish. All were delicious and good portion sizes. We did look at some of the dishes that... More

I came across this gem by chance when out shopping with my husband, we were desperate for a lunchtime sit-down and something to eat. It's a real character restaurant, one of a kind, set over three floors each with a totally different character. It's a quart squeezed into a pint pot, lots of seating in this hidden hideaway. I have... More

Considering the high level of competition for nice restaurants in Worcester, The Olive Branch still manages to stand out. The tapas are lovely and very varied and the atmosphere is excellent. I only wish that we'd booked far enough in advance to get a table outside.
