Samphire?

My wife and I ordered the Seafood Platter for the main course, with half a pork pie and scallops starters. Scallops cooked perfectly and the pork pie very good with various pickles. The Sea Food Platter had 7 dishes, a little samphire would have made it complete. The olive bread served before the... read more

On vacation in the area and celebrating an anniversary with friends very pleased we chose this restaurant for the venue. A fantastic village location with interesting garden and interior layout, with nooks and crannies to give that private feel but in the centre of it all. Great welcome and attention from relatively young staff members (can only compliment their training... More

First time stopping here for Sunday lunch and was impressed. Great ingredients from local suppliers shown on the back of the menu, nice touch. Beef set in Yorkshire pudding with veg and gravy, perfect portion leaves enough room for dessert. The service is very good and staff are knowledgeable and hardworking. The wine menu is good place to try new... More

A superb dinner with friends, the food was very well prepared and service was attentive if not a tiny bit slow. Small portions but it doesn't matter, the quality of the food was 1st class. A comprehensive wine list and some great beers.

We have been stopping here for lunch, en route to Belton, for the last twelve years. Unfortunately, the last two or three visits have been very disappointing - particularly our last lunch there two weeks ago. Sardines on toast with a gazpacho sauce, not memorable. Still don't know how toast can be cut so thin it was difficult to find,... More

We have eaten at this pub many times usually in the evening and always had excellent and interesting food - as one would and should expect. But on this occasion we went for a Sunday lunch when the food was good but the staff up front and in the kitchen were not coping well. The time between ordering and receiving... More

Wow, what a place, great food, great service from freindely, attentive and professional staff, great wine list, great beer, and great people. We stayed in Beech House opposite, had lunch, supper and breakfast at the Olive Branch. All was perfect, the only bad thing we could say is that we had to leave!

We have eaten here on several occasions and it was always excellent but not this time. We were there to celebrate my eldest son's birthday on a Sunday lunchtime. We sat outside to enjoy the early June sunshine in the beautiful garden. The service whilst being friendly was very slow. Our meal took almost three hours in total. It proved... More

I had spotted this place on Sawdays as we wanted somewhere on a return trip from Leeds. They offer either a 2 or 3 course deal or choose off the changing menu. We all chose off the menu, plenty of choices and hard as so many things one wanted! Everything was very fresh, flavours wonderful, presentation very good and staff... More
