Our last visit here was so many years ago, it didn't count. But for our 50th Anniversary we thought somewhere different and local'. Though the menu is quite varied we settled for a Tapas selection. Selecting Tapas comes down to personal taste, awkward when you are not sure what you are getting! Out of the five chosen we found two... More

My husband booked us a table for our 9 year anniversary. It was Tuesday so being mid week we wanted to stay local. Everything was excellent from start to finish and we had the added surprise that all tapas dishes were only £3.95 on Tuesdays for a current promotion which the waitress informed us of before we ordered. We liked... More

Been twice now and the food is quite simply amazing - full of flavour and cooked to perfection. The paella is second to non and the staff so friendly and accommodating. Only issue is how popular this place is as to walk in..... You need to be lucky if you haven't booked! We eat out all weekend but this is... More

We enjoyed an evening at the shared olive last night. The food was excellent, the staff very helpful and the Sangria went down particularly well. Well worth a visit.

We had the tapas which was tasty, nice wines and good service but I thought a tad on the expensive side considering the location. Have paid similar prices in London. Fix the wobbly tables though. It's not professional to see the waiter stuff napkins under the leg.

Hi msvictoria, Thank you for your review, I'm glad you enjoyed your night at Shared Olive. I do apologise however, that you had to see the waiter balancing out the tables with napkins, the situation has been addressed. We hope to see you again soon, Kind regards, Chelcie More
