Our dinner, bed and breakfast package included the 6 course gourmet dinner menu. The food was superb, the ambience very pleasant and the service professional but friendly. Wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.

Following a pleasant and helpful telephone discussion in the morning, and a lot of research, my husband and I drove an hour to purchase a £300 voucher for his fathers 70th Birthday and to say I am disappointed with the service is an understatement....... On route to the restaurant we called several times each time to greeted by the restaurants... More

Dear Lucy, I understand Pedro spoke to a gentleman last night about this, apologised and tried to explained why we were unable to help at that time. He also offered to personally deliver the voucher this morning. It is true we are not always able to offer everything to everybody when they want it but I can assure you we... More

Delicious food, impeccable service. It's always a treat to dine at The Olive Branch. It was quieter than usual ( probably due to it being a Monday evening in January!) but everything was still lovely.

Booked a table for 8 for my 18th birthday- upon arrival we were offered a selection of locally brewed lagers, ales and cocktails. Food was outstanding- plenty of local ingredients put together to form some truly special dishes. We had between us around 6 different starters and mains, and nobody could fault a thing. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming... More

Travelling down the A1 today we decided we wanted to stop somewhere a little better than a petrol station - and boy did we pick the right place. It's only a 5-10 minute drive off the A1, so ideal to break up any journey. The food was absolutely terrific, and the setting absolutely idyllic, seated near a lovely open fire.... More

We stopped off here on our way down the A1 as its only a couple of minutes off the road. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the food is beautiful and irresistible - we'd planned for a light snack but ended up having a three course meal! Out waitress was very good, she was fully attentive but in no... More

We spend Christmas in Lincs and visit The Olive branch each year. This year Christmas Eve lunch absolutely fab. Food, cocktails, wine, and service made for a wonderful afternoon. The Jumilla wine was particularly good and very reasonable. Roberto our Spanish waiter was excellent. Will be back next year.

We booked a Sunday lunch here in early December. the impression we came away with was that the Olive Branch struggled to cope with the number of covers booked that day. It took 30 mins after our booked time for us to be seated at table and a further 45mins until our order was taken. When the food did arrive... More

The food is the quality of a high end restaurant but served in a pub setting so it can be noisy, however it also gives it a good atmosphere. Service is efficient and friendly and the food is excellent. One small point was we ordered two venison dishes to be cooked pink and one was perfect and one was over.... More
