Came here as part of my partners birthday. Good choices available and three courses for 18 quid. Friendly staff and a reasonably priced wine list would visit again if in Lichfield.

Very small but quite intimate. The resturant itself has a rustic vibe. Food had lovely flavours and was served to us hot. Couldn't complain.

Mistake on the bill (overcharge) quickly rectified. Ham hock and lamb mediocre - small portions and glad we ordered a side of veg. Cheap prices - £60 for 3 courses plus a bottle of... More

I came to the Olive Tree for a Christmas meal with my parents and had a wonderful experience. The decorations were subtle but wholesome and the food was delicious with a lovely Christmas pudding to top it off. The delightful little additions just make this a restaurant to visit again and again.

The venue is a bit austere, scrubbed wooden floors and no table cloths. But, that does not detract from the quality of the food, which is top notch and well worth the money. The service is good too, plenty of staff and very attentive. We'd not been the the restaurant for over 15 years, but we will be going again,... More
