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

We have been dining at Oliver's for several years and their standards have always remained very high. The front of house staff cannot be faulted from their warm welcome to their attentive service. Food is of a high quality and the menu choices are always interesting and varied. Great wine list. The Hendersons

Oliver's is a restaurant I have wanted to try for a long time, having heard good things about it. Set in Woodford, a lovely area of Stockport, Oliver's is an excellent restaurant to go for a special occasion. I was part of a group of 6 who were celebrating my girlfriend's birthday. We had initially booked for 7.30pm, but had... More
