We were 2 out of towners wanting lunch and went on the recommendation of a local who had last eaten there 3 years ago. Do not be put off by the entrance or the ground floor ambiance but head upstairs to a dining area set with crisp tablecloths and sparkling cutlery. We ordered a traditional paella for 2 which was...

We have visited a few times now and it is nice to see the staff recognise us when we have re-visited. We have tried several items on the menu and it all has been to a high standard. Excellent value 5 Tapa's for £20 before 7.00pm and plenty of choice.The staff are all very helpful and attentive.

The food was to die for and the portions were huge. The staff were attentive and helpful. If I had one criticism is that upstairs is quite small and when full it does become noisy. Didn't damper our evening though.

This restaurant is down a side street in Worcester centre, looks un prepossessing but go inside, upstairs and you won't be disappointed. Food was excellent and a good portion. A friend and myself chose paella which was really tasty and plenty of it. For desert they do a mini desert with coffee for 3.95 if you don't feel like a... More

Hidden behind a church off a side street of Worcester's high street is a little gem of a restaurant. It specialises in Spanish / Mediterranean cuisine. Their tapas menu is not to be missed, and mains are quite good as well. My husband and I have eaten here and we have always enjoyed our meal and the atmosphere of this... More

Speaking to a lady at the Worcester Whitehouse Hotel during breakfast and lamenting the quality of their evening meal, she recommended The Olive Branch saying that they always ate there. We duly paid it a visit only to discover that it was fully booked later in the evening and only a 6.00 pm table was available. We settled for this... More

We have created a dining environment with a classic mix of the stylish and the contemporary, within the wonders of one of the City's most historic buildings.Split across three floors, the ground floor and first floor serve as a dining area, whilst the cellar has been transformed into a magnificent cocktail bar area, with the low brick ceilings creating an intimate and relaxing area, perfect for a pre or post dinner drink. Our outdoor courtyard also has seating for up to 40 people, perfect for a bite to eat or a coffee in the sunshine.We aim for this landmark building to once again become synonymous with top class dining in the City of Worcester.
