My honest advise from my experience is do not go! The so called manager Luke has zero management skills and zero customer service skills, get rid of him and people might start going back.More

Description
The Olive Bar and Grill caters for all tastes, however, the speciality is Volcanic Hot Rocks, where you cook your own meat at the table. A definite experience not to be missed. There is a great wine, cocktail and beer selection including two Batemans real ales.
