Food was excellent (as always) when it arrived, however the service we received on this occasion left a lot to be desired. We waited over 20 mins for our drinks order to be taken after we were seated and a further 1hr 10 mins before our food arrived. We had to continually ask for more drinks and no coffee was... More

The table layout wasn't quite right for us but the waitresses soon moved them around to suit us better - very helpful and a good night was had by all... More

Upon arriving (we were the first of our group), we were welcomed by the staff and ushered upstairs to the bigger room. The waitress or manageress (not sure) came to find out what we'd like to drink, and refused to let me come downstairs to bring them up, and insisted she did the legwork. Brilliant service. The food was excellent,... More

I would like to congratulate the Whole Team at the Shared Olive - we had a group of 30 guests, which in fairness was a bit of a squeeze in the upstairs function room! Which might have had more to do with the fact that most of us are reasonbly well upholstered! But the staff were brilliant at collecting &... More
