As good as ever

I hadnt been here for a few years after moving away from the area but it was as good as I remembered. Good food and excellent staff and a nice relaxed setting for dinner. With a wine list from £16 to £80 i`m sure there is something for everyone. I was driving so sadly it was lime and soda for... read more

This is the first time we have eaten here and we were very impressed. The decor and lighting was very nice, the food was wonderful and the staff were fantastic. We had the scallops to start which were very nice and well presented. I do think for £11.95 you should receive 4 scallops rather than the 3 we received but... More

This was our favourite restaurant for many years, but having moved slightly outside the area some years back, it is quite some time since we last visited. After eating there recently, I must say it has changed little in terms of service and quality. The interior has been modernised but the standard of food is just as it ever was... More

Mum and I finally had our christmas lunch today, 6th January. With one thing and another and family illness it was our first time out in weeks. We had been out a couple of times in November and had dreadful meals NOT at Olivers. Why bother to go miles, when we have a brilliant restaurant like Olivers on the doorstep?... More

Booked a Living Social deal which included a sharing platter starter, a main course each & glass of prosecco. This was our first visit so hadn't known what to respect. The staff were very nice & attentive & the restaurant had a nice feel. The food was enjoyable & the drinks reasonably priced, although there was some confusion over the... More

This was our third tip to Olivers but the first time we've left a review as we like to give restaurants a few visits before we review. Our party of 5 enjoyed all the food, which was well prepared and very different. We particularly liked the service which was excellent without being overpowering. Reasonably priced as well although, as with... More

With history , and focus on service and value ,,, we found Oliver's a nice treat. The key element for us is atmosphere as with most so called " quality " establishments . Oliver's is unpretentious, staff are attentive , just a bit to quick sometimes .., not bad point . Overall food good and well cooked , thank chef.... More

We went on a Monday night in the middle of November so wasn't expecting it to be mega busy but we weren't alone with at least another another couple of tables filled. Service was excellent and was friendly and attentive at the right moments without being overly in your face which is always a risk on quieter nights. Our drinks... More
