I have been to to the Olive Tree on several occasions and have been continually impressed by the overall service. On my last visit myself and my partner came in for lunch, it is a small and busy location but there was no trouble finding us a table. We were served primarily by the manager and I cannot fault his... More

This was our third year in succession dining as a large party (26 this year). As before, we were allocated the whole first floor which allowed for various personalities within our organisation to deliver after-dinner speeches without disturbing other diners. Paddy had provided us well in advance with a special menu comprising at least five choices of starter, main and... More

We have heard good reports on the Olive Tree over the last few years but this was our first visit. It won't be our last. Friendly waiting staff, an atmospheric ambience and excellent food all at a reasonable price. We visited on a Saturday evening and although it was busy, service was fast and efficient whilst allowing us to eat... More

We went to the Olive Tree for a special birthday and had a superb lunch. Paddy and his team made the lunch very special and we enjoyed fantastic food in a lovely atmosphere. We are so lucky to have this excellent restaurant in our town.

Although we've lived in Nailsworth for a number of years, we've only eaten at the Olive Tree a couple of times, but after our last visit we've vowed to do so more often. The food is excellent, the service warm, friendly and efficient and the atmosphere warm and cosy. The wine list has been thoughtfully put together - try the... More

We are regular guests at The Olive Tree, and always take friends and relatives when they visit, as this is the 'best in town' restaurant. Affordable, great service, warm welcome, great dishes and good wines, make for memorable evenings that bring you back to the Olive Tree time after time. Paddy and his team deserve every plaudit they get on... More

It's very small inside but full of character. A nice place to have an intimate coffee and chat. I wouldn't rush back but would recommend it.
