Went for a meal with friends. First visit. We booked a table for 9pm but we weren't seated until 9:30pm due to the previous table not finishing when anticipated.

Food is very tasty, good portions and not too expensive. £20 for 5 tapas on a weekday. Easily enough for my daughter and I. We are... More

Visited with my wife today and had a great lunch. Not sue what dead animal gave up his ribs for me, but when they are cooked in brandy and sherry, my goodness they are amazing. Cant wait to return, well done Olive Branch.

Conveniently situated in the centre of the city, the Olive Branch has no pretension: the décor is simple and a bit tired, the menu and the wine list are limited. But, hey, who goes to a restaurant for the décor? We decided to go for tapas at lunchtime (there's a deal of 5 tapas for £20) and had a wonderful... 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.
