I went to the Olive Branch for a family Birthday meal. It was a bit out of the way but as there were good review on tripadvisor we really wanted to try it out.

The menu had been expertly put together to embody the season and the richness of... More

We booked a table and returned to the Olive Branch on New Year's Day - the restaurant was very atmospheric, decorated with seasonal Christmas swags, a tree and an open fire, all very appealing. The service was very friendly and attentive - the presentation of all the courses of food was excellent - we would definitely return again and would... More

A beautiful English Pub, set in a picturesque setting. Inside is a true delight, oak beams a blazing log fire to welcome you in on a cold winters day, to enjoy a mulled wine, whilst browsing the fabulous menu of food and wine. Pedro and his Team are a delight, attentive and helpful and all are welcoming from the moment... More

A large party of 12 booked in the bar and had two tables pushed together in one of the side rooms. Delicious meal of venison stew and praline parfait. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Shared dinner with four friends recently after only having lunch on the terrace in better weather. The building, the decor, the attentive and responsive staff and superb dinner left us all wanting more. It was splendid in every way and just what we wanted.

Been here a few times now. It lacked some a while ago. Not so much the food, but the staff were inattentive and brusque. We did stop going. However, all change again now. We had heard that the restaurant had improved and indeed it has. The staff were excellent and saw to our every need. The meal was delicious. Only... More

Once again,splendid in every sense. We have just spent a lovely evening having a quiet meal for two in this wonderful pub/restaurant. Staff just as you would want them to be,there but not intrusive. Pedro is the star of the show and a mine of information that he is more than willing to share. The food is first class and... More
