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.

I've been here twice with two friends, once for lunch, once for dinner. Food was okay for the fixed price menu, although my friends both mentioned on separate occasions it suffers from too many ingredients on the plate (as others have mentioned). I would have been fairly disappointed had we paid the a la carte prices. The restaurant was really... More

We visited this restaurant for a mid week lunch and I would say it was OK but nothing really special. Had booked to take some friends on the Sunday but they had to cancel so we thought we'd give it a try on our own - I'm glad we did as our friends may have been disappointed. The restaurant itself...

We last ate here about 25 years ago when it was called Olivers Bistro and was very good, we since moved further out of the area but had an opportunity to revisit recently. However i did choose this restaurant again due to the wall-to-wall 5-star reviews on TA and our initial impressions were good with a warm welcome by the... More

I'm sorry to hear you were a little disappointed with your main course on Saturday, but pleased you enjoyed the excellent service, your starters and desserts. When chatting to you on Saturday celebrating your wife's birthday, you said to me how you enjoyed your main course! In the interest of balance, £100 (no small sum granted) did include cocktails, a...
