Perfect celebration lunch

Excellent food, friendly service, log fire. Great! Fantastic value for the lunch for less too (although we did have some added extras by choice). Still fantastic.

We stopped here while on a tour tracing the Eleanor Crosses from Lincoln to London (charing cross is the last one - special to real cabbies) we opted for a la carte, biut the set menu looked good too Great food and beer, all reasonably priced even for non London we stayed in their accommodation too

As always food very good. We ate from set menu, my only criticism being I would have preferred one less course and had bigger portions for main.

Perhaps not as good as i was expecting, but then i had been led to believe that it was exceptional. What it is infact, is an above average gastro-pub, with above average pricing to match. I wouldn't hesitate to go back as the food, drink and service were all very good. I would also be happy to recommend it to... More

I surprised my hubby with a valentine dinner with accompanying drinks (£95 pp) and a stop over at beech house (£195),the only hiccup was that I forgot to pack his contact solution but the OB came to the rescue and lent us one of the staffs ,they were extremely welcoming and felt at ease in this well decorated quaint pub...

We went to the Olive Branch for lunch for the first time the other day. We have been meaning go since moving to the area over a year ago. We were unable to book a table in the restaurant, but we could eat in the pub area, which was cosy. The food was great, no brilliant, as was the service.... More

I attended the pork butchery course given by Sean Hope yesterday. It was totally brilliant and I learned a lot and came home with half a pig that I had butchered myself. Amazing value for £75 There were only two of us so we got individual attention. Not for the faint-hearted if you dont like cutting up meat, but there... More

Came here when staying hearb on recommendation of the person we rented our cottage from - and pleased we did! Combines very well with the yew tree avenue walk and the food and atmosphere were great - def recommend if you are looking for a traditional pub lunch with a wonderful open fire

We went to lunch here today as part of the Rutland 'lunch for even less'. A great way to go test out new places at very good prices. For £15.50 for 2 courses this was a big discount from the a la carte menu. The whole experience was just lovely. Pretty pretty pub in a lovely village. A roaring fire,... More

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. Having prebooked we were seated promptly and given menus straight the way. Our drinks order was swift and we were given adequate time to choose our... More
