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 went on a quiet night. The staff were miserable. The food was poor and outrageously overpriced. The chef couldn't even be bothered to stay for our desert order leaving the waitress unable to tell us what was in the deserts or what cheese came with the cheese board. By far the worst restaurant I've eaten in and one of... 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

Came here for a one night B & B and meal deal. Rooms are great, staff fantastic and attentive and the food to die for. Would recommend the Olive Branch to everyone.

Very slow service min 30 mins between courses, small portions and very expensive especially as veg are priced seperately £26 for rack of lamb (call it assiette of lamb then charge more) even the fixed price menu has no veg so if you want them you have to order from ala carte menu. Very pretentious in shabby surroundings. Definately won,... More

From entering the bar to the door being held open on our departure the service we received was excellent, i ordered the chicken pate which was smooth as you like and full of flavour, although the portion was a little large for a starter. I followed this with rump of lamb complemented by perfect roast potato`s . The menu was... More

We have been here a number of times over the last few years and are never disappointed. The food is fantastic and the service is always spot on. My husband and I went for our wedding anniversary and I had the chicken pate to start, which was to die for! I had vegetarian pasta for my main which was a... More

We used to regularly frequent the Olive Branch and have been going on and off for the past 11 years. Having not visited for a couple of years, we decided to go back as we had always enjoyed the quality of the food and the attentive service. We visited one Saturday and were booked for 8.30pm. When we arrived, we... More
