Great food and atmosphere

It was our first visit to the olive branch but won't be our last. Food was excellent, I would recommend the tapas. Service was prompt and very good.

Celebrated our wedding anniversary by going out for a meal at this restaurant, so glad we opted for this rather than trekking into Birmingham. We had the Greek Meze sharing starter followed by 6 tapas dishes, my husbands favorite was the paella, mine were the Calamari fritti and the Catalana Spinach. We will be coming back, and next time bringing... More

This was our first visit to Worcester and every local we asked highly recommended this restaurant, the food and service did not disappoint! The food was fresh, tasty and superb value. We all plan to visit again soon, very happy customers.

Great food and service. Portion sizes were good apart from the pasta dishes, which were really small. Will definitely go again.

Situated right by the side of St Swithins church off the High Street. Wonderful to sit out in the summer. Wonderful food, great service and inspired location. Give the restaurant a try you will not be disappointed..

We had just travelled up the River Severn and moored in Worcester. Walking around town we came across this fantastic find tucked behind a church in a side street. Very friendly and welcoming staff. We had a pleasant drink in the bar first and were then shown to our table upstairs. Great Mediterranean food with a Spanish feel. We will... More

Went here with a friend the other Tuesday evening - last time I was here it was an Indian - the restaurant is very quirky, but the main eating area is like a school canteen - tables close together and the whole place is so brightly lit its not an ambient atmosphere at all. There were only two of us... More

We held a private party in the Wine bar and had Tapas for 23 people. I can't praise The Olive Branch enough. The selection and quality of the Tapas that we were served was amazing. The atmosphere was perfect and the staff exceptional! Will definitely be making a return visit!

Great food and friendly staff with lots of choice. Good value for money and tucked away so not rammed all the time so ideal for girls who want to chat
