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

My husband and I visited here this afternoon with his parents for a Mother's Day lunch. Upon arrival we ordered drinks and were given an aperitif. The menu is not extensive but perfectly proportioned! The starters are varied and appealing and the mains offer something for everyone. My husband and I ordered the fishcakes which were so fluffy and tasty,... More

Ate here recently for the first time in a while - set menu as £70 per couple deal, this included a bottle of wine to share and 3 courses so excellent value. Part of a large party so service of food differed between tables, we got ours first so can't complain! Food was absolutely gorgeous and portion size just right... More

We have been going to the Olive Branch once a year to meet old friends for many years. What a disappointment this time around. We had booked for 8pm and finally got our main course at 10.20. As is often the case these days there were not enough staff to cater for a full restaurant. Why do restaurants do this?... More
