Two colleagues and I visited on Tuesday this week to find the restaurant fairly busy; a good sign for mid week. Seated straight away and brought a bottle of chilled water & olives/bread as an opener - nice touch. The choice of starters and mains on the table 'd' hote were excellent and the option of a steak (which my... More

I haven't been to the Olive Tree for a whole, I don't know why, because the meal was good last time and on this occasion. I went along with a friend and we had the two course menu for £16 - a nice menu. I had the goats cheese which was lovely, not too much for a starter and beautifully... More

We were visiting Lichfield for a short break and came upon this lovely restaurant by Recommendation. It was everything we could have hoped for. The food was excellent and the service prompt, friendly and almost homely. This is an excellent choice if a member of your party is not into highly seasoned or spiced food. Lichfield is a small, but... More

You need to book a table as this restaurant is always busy. Loved the atmosphere of the busy restaurant and yet the staff gave excellent service and didn't appear 'rushed'. Love the prawn and crab risotto as a starter - highly recommend it as it was so tasty. Loved the fact all the plates were hot and so was the... More

The menu has enough choice to be interesting and the food was very good. Service was quick and friendly. The location is great - almost the middle of town and with big windows to watch the world pass by. Best of all - the price - very affordable two course lunch menu makes this attractive for everyday eating - although... More

Our first visit and thoroughly enjoyed. Water, bread and olives brought to the table almost immediately, then time to peruse the menu which was quite extensive for a relatively small restaurant. Food was well presented and tasty. Quite busy and possible due to the hard flooring we found it rather noisy but not enough to deter a second visit. Recommend... More

We came today for lunch and being fairly regular to the place we knew we would not be disappointed. I had the cassoulet which was exceptionally good. My wife had the open mozzarella tart, which in her words " was perfectly balanced either all the flavours I like" Our starters were very good but surpassed by the mains. This is... More
