“A lovely place for a romantic meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

My husband and I celebrated our 4th anniversary here, which also happens to fall on Valentine's Day. There was a special Valentine's set price menu. There was a good variety of choices on the menu including vegetarian. The food was great, the staff were friendly and attentive and it was good value for money. A three course meal, bottle of wine and a couple of soft drinks cost us £50.00. The atmosphere was very relaxed and chilled out. There is no parking outside but there is a car park a 2 minute walk away. I would recommend the Fat Olive and will be making a return visit myself.
