This is a wonderful place to stay. Great value, especially the DB&B tariff during the week. The room we had was spacious with a spotless light airy ensuite bathroom and a little butlers area on the landing with a fine selection of beverages.

Family of 4 went for my birthday. The food we had was good. Cooked well, good quality and tasty however it was overpriced! Unfortunately the menu was very limited. We are not fussy eaters but none of us were able to choose a starter, strangely the starters were all fish. The main courses were limited also, not even a chicken... More

We were very much looking forward to an evening at the Olive Branch for my wife's birthday, having been before about 15 years ago. Initially we were surprised to find it had changed very little - the interior is quite tatty and dated. However, we put this initial disappointment to one side safe in the knowledge that the food would... More

Someone else commented that they wished to keep their review brief because they had already wasted too much time, and those are my exact sentiments. The service is a shambles, the inside is grubby, the food is nothing more than ping cuisine and the prices are outrageous for what is being served up. There is a very telling photograph on... More

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
