We made a late booking and were well looked after by friendly staff in this beautiful restaurant. The Tapas was excellent and the staff acomodated the movement of our Grandson.

We found the Olive Branch through an advertisement at a conference I attended. I had not booked and a staff member was about to phone another restaurant to find us a table when a cancellation gave us the opportunity to eat one of the most pleasant meals I've had. The staff were really lovely - not only having done the... More

Beautiful lunch! Decided on the 5 for £20 tapas menu and a bottle of wine, couldn't fault the food and the wine was lovely. Staff were friendly and the general atmosphere was great. Decided to stay for a few cocktails afterwards making the most of the 241 deal! Perfect afternoon! Best tapas restaurant I have been to in this country... More

Eight of us went for lunch after my brother's wedding. We had various sharing platters including fish and mezze and everyone was very pleased. The main courses were even better: my lobster agnolotti were outstanding as were my wife's gnocchi with blue cheese. More mundane dishes are also available. Finished with affogato. Highly recommended.

We visited the olive branch over the weekend, with a pre-booked party of friends, having been told by lots of people that it was a really good place to eat. We had pre-ordered our food and paid in advance. We waited over 2 hours for our starters and finally had our deserts at 10.45. The staff were more interested in... More

Great meal, we had a selection of the foods and all thought that it was delicious. Cater for gluten and dairy free too. Staff were just a bit harassed looking

We were looking for a nice place to eat in Worcester and couldn't find anywhere that had a wide range of menu choices, until we came across The Olive Branch. It was fully booked but the manager still found us a table tucked in beside the bar. The restaurant was bursting at the seams but we got great service, lots... More

great place for a light lunch, if you choose one of their sharing boards or tapas offers, My wife and I chose 5 tapas with some warm bread. Excellent value and almost too much to eat tor two of us. Service was a bit slow, but worth the wait. Everything was freshly prepared.
