We have just had a really nice meal at Olivers, all three courses were excellent and really tasty, my steak was cooked to perfection and the pineapple dessert was fantastic. The staff were friendly and professional and the surroundings were very pleasant . This restaurant is well worth checking out if you are in the area.

We had a lovely meal on Sunday, the food was well cooked and piping hot Liz and the girls looked after us from start to finish as usual, and this added to a perfect lunch. We have booked for my birthday and we are looking forward to our next visit.

We haven't visited Oliver's for some time and had a lovely welcome from Liz and the girls! The food was fantastic thanks to the Chefs and the service too, so we won't be leaving it too long until our next visit ... Thanks to all!

We travel a lot and this is still one of the best places to eat we have ever been to. We go to Oliver's once or twice a year and the staff always remember what we had last time and go that extra mile to always ensure whatever we eat is always perfect.

We were celebrating my Mother's 80th Birthday. We had a lovely evening, excellent food and service. Such helpful staff. We've visited 4/5 times now and have never been disappointed. I'd recommend this restaurant - first class.

Sometimes you can just sense when things are right. That's what happens as soon as you arrive at Oliver's. Big spacious car park and brigtly lit facade are followed by the warmest welcome from the staff. Decor is modern and classy. Wide choice of gins for drinks at the bar and generous sized tables for maximum dining comfort. The menu... More

This was our first visit in more than 15 years, the place is very stylish and the staff very friendly, however, either the music was too loud or the acoustics were poor as it was extremely difficult to have a conversation without shouting. The food was alright but not amazing, I had the pate which was good but let down... More

Very nice food. Great service. Lovely ambience / location. The fixed price lunch menu is very well priced, with plenty of choice and excellent product. Good parking in the restaurant car park. Extensive roadworks near Woodford roundabout can make access tricky due to queues but they shouldn't go on much longer.

Restaurant has reasonable parking with no-problem overflow onto a lane if necessary. Very friendly, competent team of waitresses. The meal was first class. My wife and I had a splendid starter - Black sticks blue and pistachio soufflé; really light and full of flavour. Main course we chose was baked salmon with saffron and seafood risotto - again delicious. Dessert... More
