Been visiting Olivers for a number of years. James and his team run a great restaurant and I cannot recommend it more highly. Always attentive service and lovely food. Had Sunday lunch yesterday, and as always very happy.

Went for the first time and was so disappointed. The Resturant had no atmosphere. The food was very bland and very oily! And finally it was too pretentious and unfriendly!! Will never return and I will not recommend......ever!

My first time to Olivers after passing it many times on the road. Chosen as the reviews were good and to try somewhere different. Thursday evening the restaurant was half full and the atmosphere was fairly mute...until we arrived. Service was attentive and swift, no order mistakes etc. Knowledge of the menu was good however an added touch would be... More

We visited Olivers on a colleague's recommendation as a special meal to celebrate my parents' (62nd!) Wedding Anniversary. The service was excellent and the food, on the whole, was very good. Unlike the reviewer who gave Olivers only 1 point, I like my lamb very rare and it was cooked to perfection for me, whereas I find most UK restaurants... More

We regularly eat at Olivers as it is near to our home and offers excellent food at a competitive price. We usually visit at lunchtime and eat from the lunchtime set price menu which is good value. The food quality is consistently high, serving locally sourced products cooked beautifully. The service is always pleasant and efficient. This is a lovely... More

I came here with my boyfriend on a Livingsocial voucher for a 2 course meal with wine deal. We had a cocktail when we arrived at their lovely bar with all sorts of interesting bottles of alcohol. The meal was absolutely fantastic, they really catered for my gluten free diet and it was cooked to perfection. We had duck and... More

The food was amazing. The service was great. We'd love to go more often but it's quite expensive. That's not to say it's not worth it but it makes it more of a treat than a regular haunt for us.

Dear Supervixen, Glad you loved us! Our two course evening menu which includes coffee and wine is £15.95 per person!! It's what all the regulars go for. Sign up as a Privilege Diner on our website for even more great offers. Do you hope to see you soon. Many thanks. More

James and his team delivered a perfect intimate wedding dinner for our family... Nothing was too much trouble and we loved it. We have dined in many great places ( we were in the Cliff a few days after our wedding) but this place punches well above its weight.

I bought a group buying voucher (Living Social) for Oliver's as my husband had grown up near the restaurant, and I thought it would be nostalgic for him to return. We both opted for the 8oz fillet steak for our mains, and we were not disappointed. My Husband Jim is a tough critic, but on the first mouthful he said... More

For reasons outside our control, it's been quite some time since we last visited this restaurant. Went again last night and it was a very enjoyable meal - good service, good food, pleasant ambiance and a suitable price.
