Visited with friends and children, the restaurant was full so we sat in the bar which was really lovely. Traditional restaurant/bar which is well managed and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food. Excellent selection of wines and champagne, would recommend and will be returning.

Definitely pub food - a lot of it served on wooden boards - but gastro quality. We had fish cakes followed by slow cooked pork and it was all delicious. The atmosphere was good too and the staff were friendly.

Having recently revisited The Olive Branch, I can vouch for the high standard of service and exquisite culinary delights that you should encounter here. The restaurant was busy for a Wednesday lunch time, the waiter explained that we might have to wait a little longer than usual. We received a complimentary appetiser of gazpacho to compensate for any delays. The... More

Small but incredibly good gastro pub. Food is fabulous, very strong and fairly priced wine list, and lovely staff. If you have a gin and tonic, make a point of asking for Fever Tree - they do stock it but while they will ask which gin you want (and have a good choice) they assume its Ssh - you-know-who to...

We have wanted to dine here for some time now and were glad we finally made it after a disastrous 2 1/2 hour journey. The staff were very welcoming and, despite our tardy arrival, we were not rushed at any point. The restaurant was busy, even on a Thursday lunchtime, but the staff were all very professional. We went for... More

Efficient and nice staff. I enjoyed the very well cooked and presented food. The duck and vegetables were beautifully cooked. I particularly appreciated to have been able to taste several great British cheeses ( 8 cheeses available).

We bought the spring break deal with dinner, bed and breakfast (across the road in the Beech House). The staff were knowledgable and very friendly and our gourmet menu fit the bill nicely for our anniversay. We had fillet of steak (the special of the day) for our main course which was excellent. We were in the Aubergine room in... More
