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)

I visited before Christmas too with the networking group I am in and I keep telling my husband I will take him to dinner here so that is on the cards in the next few weeks. Great choice of food, generous portions, delicious, nice... read more

Food: Even though it is billed as a Mediterranean restaurant, the family that runs it is Italian. So it is no surprise that the Italian dishes would be great! Environment: It is located in a little corner right next to a church in the middle of Worcester town. Perhaps one may not be able to say that it is quiet,... More

We went after it being recommended by friends. We were disappointed as the food was nothing to rave about and the atmosphere was a bit dull. We wouldn't go back for food. However we have been for drinks downstairs and that was nice enough.

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
