We went for dinner a few weeks ago, we really enjoyed it. The food was hot, plentiful and delicious. It is more geared to older children than younger ones.

We took family to the Olive Bar & Grill as it was close to home & has a good reputation in Doncaster. It was surprisingly quiet, so we had our pick of tables, which was nice. Pleasant on a warm day, we could sit for a drink with glass French doors wide open. They have a quirky menu choice with... More

After difficulty ordering meals took approx 45 mins to arrive, one didn't arrive at all, so my wife got hers when we had finished eating, waitresses avoid eye... More

We are (we Really) regulars here but since the refurbishment the service is extremely poor due to insufficient staffing levels, We are not complainers but recently have had to send several meals back due to the food being cold. All of the staff that were there before the refurb have left as they could not tolerate the drop in service... More

Went to this amazing venue. As we arrived we was welcomed with professionalism, knowing that it was a wake and all staff could not do too much. David the manager was brilliant looking after all the other guests of mixed ages. The buffet was fantastic, you could definitely tell that the chef was of a high standard. The bar service... More

Waited over an hour for meal. Very disappointed when it arrived - mushrooms and onions missing from one dish, all 3 salmon dishes were dry and tasteless with undercooked potatoes. We were given 25% off but won't be returning or recommending to friends.

Go to the olive quite a lot but recently before it was refurbished, the service became very slack. However after the refurbishment we thought it may have changed.. Wrong. The wait for food was well over an hour. No apology when the food came. Staff avoiding eye contact so couldn't ask for any drinks etc. Brought meals out staggered so... 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.
