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)

Gorgeous food! Six of us chose a selection of tapas dishes and every one was delicious. Service was great. Beautiful building and atmosphere. Cellar bar was lovely too.

I booked a table for 2 on pay day, for my sister and myself as a treat! I've only been here a few times, but my experiences have been good. Unfortunately on this occasion we were left a bit disappointed - the food at the olive branch is generally of high quality, and I would say reasonably priced, leaning more... More

Have been many times- love the food, atmosphere and staff. Over time we have eaten at the outside tables,upstairs and in the indoor area downstairs. I am a great fan of small amounts of different tastes -so the tapas menu is right up my street. In the week if you dine early there is a special deal for tapas (5... More
