I must go again soon!

This is a traditional bistro with a modern feel, one of those places where you get a real big range of ages, mostly I suspect because the food is just so good. Lots of nice touches with how you are welcomed, I always have a drink at the bar whilst ordering. The food is just superb & not hugely... read more

Again a very nice evening at Oliver's Restaurant in Woodford. The food has never been a disappointment and the staff is very welcoming. The whole atmosphere in the restaurant is great

Visited for the first time for a pre Christmas get together with friends. When we visit them they always take us to a really plush restaurant in Marlborough Wiltshire and we have been trying to find somewhere local with great food, good staff, a nice location and most important when you are pout with friends - able to hear a...

We made a post Christmas visit to Olivers to take advantage of their mid week offer as "Privilege Diners". As always the food and service were first class. This is an excellent venue to have a relaxed and enjoyable meal in a very modern restaurant.

Went for a quick weekday lunch. Parking is available at the restaurant. No wifi. Usual encompassing alcohol available. The 'express' fixed lunch menu of 2 courses and a drink for £15, is very adequate and produced lovely food. Very nice independent restaurant, good food, nice people, good value.

It was a very last minute decision to visit and was a restaurant we had hoped to try out during the last year but never got around to making a booking. Well, what a place to eat and with the highest quality service standards too. Liz, who looks after the 'front of house' couldn't possibly have been more accommadating and... More

I visited Olivers as part of a group of 8 for an early Christmas party. We went off a three course set menu which was very reasonably priced. The food was absolutely delicious and very well presented. The wine was priced well as was the processo which went down well! Staff were attentive and very professional. Can't wait to return
