“Olivers - so glad we found this place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

I ate at Olivers for the first time last night with my family and I'm absolutely delighted we went.

To start with the decor and ambiance are spot on - modern and clean without being sterile, the place was full (always a good sign) and the waiting staff seemed completely in control.

I started with fennel and peppercorn crusted beef carpaccio which was absolutely stunning, possibly the best starter I've ever had. The balance of flavours was incredible and the beef was so so tender - brilliant! My main was pancetta wrapped pork which was tender and full of flavour, and for dessert I had the cheese board, which for a change had only 1 cheese I recognised from a selection of 5 as they were mainly from small local producers. And the 3 I tried were great, as was the homemade chutney that came with them.

The service was attentive but not overbearing, the wine list was excellent, and although it isn't cheap, its really very good value.

You really must give this place a try!

“Lovely meal out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Having been for lunch for the first time a couple of months ago my wife recommended to her mother that we had her birthday meal here. There were 11 of us in total on Sunday lunchtime, ranging from age 7 to 80+, and we were all pleased with our choices. Being such a large party, they had asked that we choose in advance, but this was no problem for us, and we all had choices we were happy with. The staff were attentive, and friendly, food was of a high quality, and all 11 meals were served at the same time, no small feat. They left sufficient time between courses so that we didn't feel that we were having to wait too long, and by the same token, we weren't rushed. OK, not the cheapest, but certainly not over expensive for this quality. We'll definitely be back

“Fab food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2012

A group of us visited this restaurant for my Dad's 80th birthday (9 in total). Excellent choice for Sunday lunch. The quality and presentation of the food was superb and the attention to detail from the staff was excellent - nothing was too much trouble.

Sunday lunch was very good value and the wines reasonable. I haven't visited this restaurant for a number of years so was delighted to see it had changed inside quite considerable. It is now slightly larger and the decor quite minimalistic and contemporary.

Would definitely recommend this, and will revisit hopefully again soon

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

We have driven past Olivers for so long and never been in.On a lovely sunny summer day (yes there was one!) we decided to call in for lunch. We were lucky to get the last table. Wonderful food, delightful service, how could we have missed this great place. It was so good we returned 4 weeks later for another delicious lunch.

Great food, great service. A bit pricey but you can opt for the fixed menu which is really good value. Will certainly return.
