I used to travel the world with work and been to literally hundreds of restaurants and this is still my favourite! If you have a bad meal here maybe you have a cold or something because the food is excellent, no, it's superb! The staff are always friendly and helpful and knowledgeable too and the place itself is a joy... More

We went to this restaurant with friends who had been before and liked it - and I must say that we liked it too. Outside it was cold and wet but inside was warm and welcoming. The menu was good and varied. I had the scallops for a starter and then risotto as a main (it was actually a starter... More

We have eaten at The Olive Branch a number of times & always found the food great. As a special celebration, we decided to book a Bed, Breakfast & Evening Meal Package. This is fantastic value, particularly on Sundays & weekdays. We both had Mushroom Risotto & Ice cream dessert. My wife had Fillet Steak & I had Lobster &... More

I visited here in October 2014 as a birthday treat from my better half, he booked a table for the 2 of us in advance as it was going to be a Saturday night and expected it may get busy - we were not wrong! Every table was taken but this did not abstract from the atmosphere or customer service... More

The Olive Branch is pricey, which is why we only go for special occasions - just as well really, otherwise I'd have to move in! Food is imaginative, but not outlandish, twists on classic dishes made with top quality local produce. Range of wines is excellent and they always have a couple of real ales too. The service is warm... More

nice place to eat for a change. not much menu choice if you like plainer food like me, so we had steak which was overgenerous in portion size. well worth a visit.

Firstly I would like to retract a comment that I made in a review of Mozzarella's recently. I advised people to instead travel twenty minutes up the road to The Olive Branch - however after last weeks visit I have given up all hope for Paul & Charlotte and what used to be a brilliant local restaurant. Firstly, we haven't... More

Called in here about 12:15 looking for something to eat. It was quiet but the lady who dealt with us was very friendly and welcoming. None of us went for the Sunday roast. We had cod in mushroom and parsley sauce, steak medallions in brandy and peppercorn sauce and Lamb shank. We asked for a few alterations to the menu... More

We don't get to the Olive Branch very often - it's our "special occasion" restaurant. Our recent visit for our wedding anniversary proved to be worth the wait and totally lived up to expectations. Food was outstanding; wine was perfect and service, as usual, was polite, friendly and knowledgeable without being ostentatious. The Olive Branch has a lovely ambiance, that... More
