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.

Recommended for couples, toilet facilities are the only negative. Went here for a special birthday meal for two and had a lovely evening. Tuesday nights are even better value with all tapas dishes reduced to just £4.

I regularly visit Shared Olive and cannot fault the food, service or ambience, always fantastic. I particularly love 'Tapas Tuesdays' here and on my last visit there was live music from their resident band, Los Amigos, who play once a month and this just adds to the great atmosphere. I have enjoyed many of their plated meals including risottos, pastas... More

A new experience for me never having tapas before. Excellent flavours and plenty to chose from. Not far from home ,so easy to reach. Service was a little bit slow but the food was well worth the wait. The main problem with this restaurant is the parking about 3 spaces ,so you will have to park on station road or... More

This was our third visit, the first time we have been for the set Sunday lunch menu! The food was good, starters of roast pepper and tomato soup were excellent, we all opted for the lamb main course, the lamb for us initially was undercooked but I would expect to many others would be fine! I asked for them to... More

We had an early dinner here this Friday evening, the main meal menu was not very exciting. Three of our party had a pasta meal which I could have cooked at home a lot cheaper than £10 a plate, it was pasta in a tomato sauce with quartered tomatoes and cheese balls on the top with four blobs of pesto!...
