This Restaurant is no longer in existence apparently. We stayed at the Lord Crewe but were told the restaurant had closed 12 months ago.

Dinner at the olive tree, some impressions: Fairly comprehensive menu options although the starters seemed limited. Service: was lacking any attention to detail - for example once the food was delivered asking if everything was alright and refreshing empty drinks etc... The Food: pasta we had was delicious but the lamb stew was uninspiring, small (a few bits of lamb... More

A glass still had lipstick on it, but rather than transfer the already poured wine into another, the glass was taken away. We had to ask for it back. We were seven but one order was wrong. The...

On a tuesday night the restaurant was almost full with a convivial atmosphere. The staff were very obliging and friendly. They had a very flexible approach to our requests to vary the menu and we were pleasantly surprised that the bill was adjusted accordingly too. We will be back as soon as we can!

We were slightly taken by surprise by the restaurant decor which despite being billed as an Italian restaurant , was far from anything even slightly Italian. However, the service was good, the...
