the little touches......

A little of the beaten track, but so worth it. On a sunny day enjoy dining al fresco, the food is always amazing and the extra touches such as cushions to select in the chest......charming

Visited for the fist time today and really enjoyed the whole meal. It was a difficult decision with such a great menu but we decided on the set Sunday lunch- Sardines on toast (well cooked fresh sardine), rib of beef with the trimmings (we had mustard mash on the side- yum!) and a plum desert (cream, plums, compote, brandy snap...

we were really stuck to find a restaurant that would be open on Monday night for a celebration, a 45 min drive out to The Olive Branch and the problem is well and truly solved. This place has it all in bucket loads and it was packed. This was a fantastic meal with perfect service in a beautiful part of... More

Visited here with my wife for our anniversary, was easy to book and turned up a bit early and had a drink. I went for a Mojito which was lovely and made with a fine White Rum. We were seated in the Barn which was presented beautifully with plenty of exposed oak beams. The food was beautiful and used locally... More

My birthday treat, lunch at the Olive Branch, recommended to us by friends. Initial greeting was a tad indifferent, with just an 'hello' and the barman although pleasant, lacked personality. The table waiting staff were good, however, we always have disliked waiting staff who circle the tables all the time and basically hover. Good staff keep an eye on diners... More

Visited for a Fathers Day treat and had a loveley afternoon. Welcome was rather hit and miss and we were left to enquire about our reservation at the bar whose staff seemed very flustered, bar was absolutely covered in used glasses. No head waiter or manageress keeping an eye out for people arriving. Eventually collared someone and from then on... More

This pretty pub made up of three 19th century stone cottages is a lovely break on the long drive up the A1. If you can, eat out in the pretty garden. The service was a bit slow but they gave us a warm half-loaf of brown bread with olive and herb butter whilst waiting, which was really yummy. We had... More
