Visited the Fat Olive as part of a party of 20 for our friends' Golden Wedding celebration on a Sunday, early evening. Selected from the 'set' menu, and there was plenty of choice for all 3 courses. The food and service were both very good indeed. We were all well looked after and, considering the party size, we were pleasantly... More

We love this place and go every few months. Be sure to book in advance as it gets busy! The menu is really nice and there should be something to please most people. We like the chicken & pancetta carbonara pasta and the lasagna (I usually dont like anyone else but mum's lasagna, so it must be good...!!!!). Its quite... More

The service from start to finish was appalling as was the food. When we complained, the manager went off on one, kind of like Basil Fawlty. Clearly the manager didn't... More

Recently visited Fat Olive for a birthday meal with friends, I thought it was lovely. Food was very good although there was not a great deal of choice. Service was excellent to our group and the ambience was very pleasant. Would definitely return.

Went here last night with my partner and really enjoyed it. The restaurant was busy but still the staff were very approachable and friendly, and the food was so tasty. I had a fillet steak and it was cooked to perfection, my partner had monkfish and she loved it. White chocolate cheesecake was well decorated and one of the best... More

Stopped off here for lunch today. Food was delicious. Black pudding starter was very tasty, a little saddened that the poached egg that crowned it was hard boiled, but the duck and the steak were cooked to perfection. Happy customers! Will definitely be back 😀
