Went to the Olive Tree, for a birthday dinner, on a Saturday night, and it's difficult to think of a place where we could have enjoyed it more. The Olive Tree aims for middle market catering, and hits the bulls eye!. It describes itself as a Mediterranean restaurant and works hard to deliver on aspects of that claim. The service... More

Four of us ate here on a Saturday evening. Very welcoming and attentive host, excellent food, especially the Salmon supreme. Three of us had deserts and the lemon tart is especially recommended. The tables are laid out so you do not have a feeling of being overcrowded. Would definitely eat here again.

This was a lovely little place, with lovely decor and atmosphere. We were struggling to find somewhere that offer a variety of dishes which were full of vegetables and flavour as well as offering a choice of vegetarian dishes. The Olive Tree did not disappoint at all! There was choice, they were happy to tweak the meals for our personal... More

We enjoyed our food and particularly appreciated that many dishes are available in large or smaller portions. Only gripe was the price of drinks ..best to stick to the tap water - a jug of which which was provided without... More

Book in advance so as not to be disappointed! We walked in the door and were warmly welcomed by Paddy and show the to our table. The restaurant downstairs is very comfortable and cosy with a fantastic ambience. Paddy filled us in with the specials and also what had run out so as to avoid disappointment. Once ordered the starters... More

The reception is friendly and the staff works hard to make your experience pleasant. The mackerel fillets were excellent, the tuna on the salad nicoise a little overcooked and tough (ask for it rare!), but the Showcase Dessert was so good, we ordered two more 'to go' for our kids.

Thought we'd pay a visit for brunch during our trip to Nailsworth. On the plus side, it's a nice location and the outdoor seating is good and suitable for dogs. The signs however were bad when the coffees arrived - piping hot cappuccino. It was still hot after we'd finished our food. That also meant it was bitter and left... More

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Quite simply all I can do is apologise for both aspects of your visit (Coffee & Eggs). I'm extremely proud of all my staff as I know they care and are passionate about The Olive Tree. However, your visit reflects the need for continual training and this is a very simple... More

We were travelling around the Cotswolds and stayed in Nailsworth. Our hostess recommended the Olive Tree and she was spot on. We were met by owner and Maitre D , Paddy , who really made us welcome and feel very special. The meals and the service were 5 star and not too pricey.Highly recommended

Spur of the moment trip to Nailsworth, Gloucestershire, time for lunch so tried the Olive Tree. Lovely clean and tidy place, good menu and best of all, Monday to Friday lunchtime eat any main course for £11 (highly recommend the monkfish on parmesan risotto). The staff were excellent and the service was spot on.
