Please be aware that what was The Olive Tree, then Stones Bistro and then Mamma Hanks is now closed and has now been reopened by new owners so any further reviews of this eatery are now defunct.

I had a group on for Mamma Hanks and for the money could not fault it. Had a great 3 course meal for 4, and would definitely go again. Was very good value for the money, just missing a few extras.

Went here for lunch last week, mainly due to the lack of choice of places in Calne. I ordered a latte and pannini and my friend the all day breakfast. My coffee was cold and I'd asked for brown bread and it came with white... the waiter did apologise, but we'd waited so long for the food that I really... More

We were not expecting much from a Groupon purchase, two 3 course meals for £13 having read previous reviews, however as we live locally we decided to give it a try. Mama Hanks as it is now called is located in the centre of Calne in a pleasant enough setting next to a stream. We started with garlic mushrooms and... More

No wonder it's on groupon, the staff had no clue about service and the food wasn't much better. The salad was drowned in vinegar, cutting the parsnips was like trying to bone a fish, the gravy was weak and tasteless and they didn't have roast potatoes, a Sunday dinner without roastys is a big no no!!! Avoid the place, the... More

We were a little anxious about visiting this place for a Sunday lunch after reading some of the reviews.. As mentioned before this is now called Mama Hanks . Situated in the centre of Calne Wiltshire in a quite pleasant setting . It is a modern American/Italian style eating place . My wife had the garlic mushrooms for a starter... More

Now called Mama Hanks I believe. First time there on Sunday for Lunch. Went with a Groupon voucher. Awful. We were showed to our table and then ignored for 10 minutes while staff cleaned and readied other tables. Eventually a waitress came over to take our orders, which was a little difficult as we hadnt even been given menus. Whilst... More

We went on Sunday 17th March after purchasing a Groupon voucher. We travelled from Bristol as we thought that it would be nice to go out for the day, have a wander and then stop for Sunday lunch. The food was ok (average but nice) but the service and the overall experience was absolutely appalling. It took us a while... More

We had a meal for four here today on a Groupon voucher. Like most other people the choice was nothing like that advertised on the Groupon deal. However unlike some other people's comments re the price on the voucher I don't agree. The menu on the table we had to choose from said that the three course meal would have... More
