Tuesday nights are steak night here, and the £45 per couple deal includes steaks, sauce and a bottle of wine. You can upgrade do Chateaubriand but we didn't on this occasion. The surroundings are lovely and it has such a cosy feel. I'd love to go back for the Sunday dine and stay package.

Four covers and all highly satisfied. Two of us had the rib-eye steak and it was absolutely excellent. If we were to have a little grumble we thought the desserts were a tad on the overpriced side; if they had been exceptional that would have been acceptable but they were very average. But overall a great place with a lovely,... More

My wife and I fancied trying this gem of a restaurant we visited a few years ago. My last visit was good but this was faultless. The two ladies who served us, Julie and Amanda were attentive and professional, but nice enough that it felt like we were having a chat with an old friend! Something that isn't seen in... More

Family of 4 went for my birthday. The food we had was good. Cooked well, good quality and tasty however it was overpriced! Unfortunately the menu was very limited. We are not fussy eaters but none of us were able to choose a starter, strangely the starters were all fish. The main courses were limited also, not even a chicken... More

This is a wonderful place to stay. Great value, especially the DB&B tariff during the week. The room we had was spacious with a spotless light airy ensuite bathroom and a little butlers area on the landing with a fine selection of beverages. The highlight was the perfect bistro style dinner in the delightful restaurant. We couldn't fault the meal,... More

We were very much looking forward to an evening at the Olive Branch for my wife's birthday, having been before about 15 years ago. Initially we were surprised to find it had changed very little - the interior is quite tatty and dated. However, we put this initial disappointment to one side safe in the knowledge that the food would... More

Someone else commented that they wished to keep their review brief because they had already wasted too much time, and those are my exact sentiments. The service is a shambles, the inside is grubby, the food is nothing more than ping cuisine and the prices are outrageous for what is being served up. There is a very telling photograph on... More

I used to travel the world with work and been to literally hundreds of restaurants and this is still my favourite! If you have a bad meal here maybe you have a cold or something because the food is excellent, no, it's superb!
