Lovely Food - Shame About the Fire!

After some disappointing meals in past times, I decided to book a table for my husband's birthday treat. Place was as buzzy as usual and the menu gave us quite a headache as all options sounded delicious. When we found our table we discovered it was directly in front of the fireplace.

On a recommendation we visited for lunch on route back from a holiday. Despite it being a mid week lunch time we fortunately booked in advance. On arrival the car park was full which is always a good sign. A busy bustling restaurant, we were immediately shown to our table and promptly served with a very welcome drink. I chose... More

Another lovely lunch at The Olive Branch. Didn't choose the set lunch time time, although it's very good value but shared the Bar Platter of tasty nibbles then followed it with delicious risotto and super creme brulee. Wonderful service as always. Our favourite place locally.

My first visit to this well-known and long established pub restaurant with rooms. Dinner menu was interesting and good value, but the wines seemed over-priced for some average vintages and sources. Beer was good, as you'd expect. Breakfast was pleasantly informal and generously proportioned. Rooms are comfortable and pleasantly different from hotel accommodation.

My husband and I were travelling home from the Lake District and decided to stop and see Rutland Water and spend the night on the way. We booked the hotel connected to the Olive Branch and came in for supper, expecting a fine meal. What we had was a GREAT meal. We decided to eat all the starters we could... More

An excellent lunchtime dining experience. Short rib beef starter. Dressed Cromer crab and salad and chicken cordon blue main courses. Mini lemon meringue pie and sticky toffee pudding for sweets. Excellent espresso to finish. Very good wine list and local beers which you could taste before buying. Could not fault the food, service and ambience. Very good value for money.... More

Not much on this time that I fancied but that is my fault. What we had was delicious and well presented. It will not deter me from visiting again.

This beautifully appointed Pub/Restaurant has a very good reputation so we were very much looking forward to our meal. The welcome was excellent and the barman/waiter certainly knew his wines. The menu is quite extensive and ranges from the traditional pub food (fish and chips) to ribeye steak and many nouvelle cuisine dishes in between. Prices from just about £10... More
