Had dinner at the Sooty Olive recently and was impressed form start to finish. The attention to detail in food, service and surroundings was outstanding. Excellent value all round.

“Dissapointed at attitude”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2015 NEW

Booked for lunch over a week ago and we requested the menu and asked for information regarding the coeliac options - called again today as we havent heard back only to be told by a lady "I'm Just a minnion"
This is not good enough.
Also we have a very schedule and its a table for 7/8 and we wished to pre order - We have been informed that policy of the restaurant that they do not allow pre ordering of food as "we have been caught before"
Dissapointed with attitude and ofcourse another restaurant has provided us with the basics today and allow pre ordering for tomorrow.
Its the simple things
