We enjoyed a simply gorgeous meal at Olivers last night. Every single morsel actually tasted of something delicious. Even the bread was divine. Loved the coconut, lime & coriander risotto with sea bass and the Banoffee cheesecake was to die for. Fabulous service- maybe a tad too fast.....but we will be back. On the downside, the restaurant is noisy which... More

Went here for my fathers birthday, and loved it. We have driven past many times but never been in. The staff are very friendly, helpful and very efficient. The food was fab, the pate starter was delicious as was the cod. No complaints from any of us. Lovely atmosphere and very impressive interior. We will definitely go again. Thank you... More

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!

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
