I eat here often, at least once a month and always have a great time. It is well crafted mediteranian food, mostly slanted towards Italian fare. I also like the little cellar bar underneath which is always nice to enjoy a beer before the meal. Well done.

My wife and I were sorting my tax bill out so obviously required a bit of a treat. She chose The Olive Branch as we've eaten here before. It was my first lunch time experience here. We opted for the Tapas and it was fantastic. It included lamb koftas, chicken patties, bruschetta, lightly fried white fish etc. Everything was so... More

Finding ourselves looking for a place to have dinner, we were surprised that so many places weren't accepting non-booked visitors at 6pm on a Saturday. Fortunately The Olive Branch managed to squeeze us in, and I'm glad they did. A sumptuous special, gorgeous desserts and fantastic cocktails made it a must-visit destination for us if we ever return to the... More

Out and about Worcester, nip in and enjoy a cocktail and beer in a friendly, refreshing place. Excellent service and excellent value and on seeing food served to the table next to us I will definitely return.

This is a lovely family run restaurant. It is only small but well worth a visit. I have eaten in the evening several times and food has been excellent, unfortunately on one occasion a large party had booked so it was quite noisy but the owners can't be held responsible for that. Food was still brilliant. I have also popped... More

Lovely tapas, great atmosphere and perfect location. Been here many times and will always recommend. After dinner you can enjoy a cocktail down stairs in the relaxed bar area.

Went here for the first time with my colleagues from work. There was roughly 15 of us. We pre-ordered our food with some having 2 courses and others 3 courses. Everyone's food was amazing and it all came out at the same time, warm and the correct orders :-) lovely place which I would definitely go back to.

A friend and I visited here for a catch up over some good food and weren't disappointed. We had a fish platter and a mezze platter - both scrumptious! Good service as always and drinks reasonably priced.

Was recommended to visit this restaurant and decided on a whim to have a meal there. The inside was nice and the service was good with friendly staff but the food was very disappointing unfortunately! We both had the most expensive dish on the menu which sounded amazing - fillet steak in a madeira sauce. However, the steak arrived in... More
