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

We have eaten at the Olive Branch in the past, always booking, but decided yesterday (Bank Holiday Saturday) to drop in at midday to see if a table was available. Told all restaurant tables were reserved but we could have one in the bar area. Not ideal but understandable on a Bank Holiday. After considering the a la carte menu,... More

At The Beech House directly opposite the ground floor bedroom we occupied opened out onto a private patio at the front with table and chairs which was an added benefit. The owners, licensee and staff were extremely accommodating, efficient, helpful and clearly very experienced.

Ages from 12 to 54, we all went for a Monday evening meal. We just loved the food! Not cheap, but we did not feel that we had been overcharged. Food is tasty and well presented. Will go again.

The service here is always excellent, including in this instance providing for an injured leg. I have been several times over the last few years, and this last time was the only one in which I've been disappointed by a dish (only because it was bland), but it was a special that wasn't on the main menu - all items...

Three friends and I visted for a birthday for a late dinner on Friday night - we had pre-ordered 2 platters for the four of us to share from the Fruits de Mer menu which is on for a limited time this summer. The food on the platter was presented really well and tasted absolutely divine. Our only negative was... More
