It may be a pub but don't be fooled by that. The food here is right up with decent restaurants. Expect to pay accordingly and once you have accepted that - sit back and enjoy the experience. The menu reflects the seasons with partridge and grouse both available on our visit and both were tasty and well presented.

Lunch for 4 Lovely environment, polite, friendly service. Food excellent - scallops, black pudding, cauliflower puree and grilled corn unusual and lovely. Terrific roast beef with a rare accompaniment - a properly soft Yorkshire pud. Such a change from the dry, polystyrene excuses usually served up. Great, rich gravy. Others had lamb and pork which also were praised, though the... More

Thought it was expensive for the size of the portion received. Main meal for 2 people and 2 drinks came in just under £70. Food and hospitality was ok, but the portion was not sufficient to fill you. Doubt I will visit anytime in the future.

First time we've ever visited the Olive branch, my husband treated me for our 4 year anniversary and it was everything I thought it would be, the staff were very welcoming, the restaurant was lovely and the food absolutely devine, we live about 50 minutes away but will definitely be back.

Sadly, the restaurant was fully-booked on the day that we wanted to visit but we were offered a Bar table on a first-come, first served basis. For that reason, we arrived well ahead of the start of evening service - that turned out to be the right move as all the tables quickly filled and people were being turned away!... More

The Olive branch in Clipsham is definitely worth trying if you haven done so already. There is a very good menu and the food is consistently good which is why we keep going back. They do a good job on the wine and home brews and there is always a friendly atmosphere helped along by well trained attentive staff. The... More

We called in for lunch on Thursday with no booking and were blown away by the quality of ingredients and the unusual choices on the menu. The best ever salt beef and caramelised onion sandwich with delicious sweet pickles and accompaniments to die for. Cold pressed on tail, yum. Fabulous bread and olives with flavoured butter. It's a shame it's... More

My brothers and I wanted somewhere special for a family lunch to celebrate my parents Diamond Wedding Anniversary (28th July). None of us live in the area but we'd rented a cottage for the weekend nearby. We found the Olive Branch online, read the reviews on TripAdvisor and booked the Barn room for our party of 13. I spoke to... More
