Drove around for far to long spotting nice country pubs that were closed. On the way back towards home we noticed this modest little place, however being a Friday evening we never thought we'd find a table. Fortunately there was something available. What a delight this was, efficient friendly staff and handled the extra table with a chat to explain... More

We arrived at around 5.30pm, two adults, two children, and were met with a very warm welcome - a really good menu and excellent value for money were the deciding factors to come to the Olive Tree and I'm so glad we did. The atmosphere built as the evening went on - informal, relaxing and friendly. The seafood linguine was... More

Had a great family brunch on Saturday - good service and great food. Olive Tree breakfasts for three of us - with adjustments (no mushrooms etc) all catered for perfectly. Croissant and ham also very good. We then moved onto tea coffee and cakes (and more cakes) as well - I enjoyed the lemon cake :)

I visited early Saturday evening and was greeted by a friendly server, took a seat outside, which is a lovely space, and ordered a pizza and wine from the menu. The selection is good and well priced. Food was served well and in good time, though I wouldn't have minded if it took longer, as it was such a nice... More

Just had lunch at the Olive Tree with the kids, as always food is superb and the service faultless - the lunchtime sized Spaghetti Bolognese is just the right size for our always hungry 7 year old, and the rest of us enjoyed the freshly made pizza's although two of us had to take some home with us for tea!

We stopped into The Olive Tree today for lunch after hearing great things about it, we are often looking for Mediterranean type places to eat as my husband is Portuguese and naturally prefers that style of food. We were greeted when we arrived and sat immediately by a very friendly waitress who couldn't have been more attentive considering it was... More

From start to finish, everyone at the olive tree gets it spot on! Paddy's personal approach couldn't be friendlier. The food was lovely. I indulged in the full 3 courses (naturally) and enjoyed every bit of it. Will be back for dinner again soon! And breakfast even sooner no doubt as that's also, always amazing!

Lovely restaurant, however, food was bland and the menu was very pricey. One member of our group had the marguerita pizza and she asked for rocket to give it some zest. The couscous was dry and un-flavourful.

Thank You for taking the time to post a review on our restaurant. Firstly, I have to say, I was delighted that we were able to accommodate you on one of our Super Supper Evenings (2 courses for £12) albeit under one of our gazebos in the courtyard as we were full inside and you and your party had turned...
