We were looking for a nice place to eat on a Saturday evening and found Olivers on trip advisor and we were not disappointed - it easily lived up to the reviews. The service was impeccable and the food fantastic. It's not somewhere we could visit every week due to cost but it is certainly on the list for those... More

I cannot understand why this restaurant is not fully booked every night. The food is outstanding and is excellent value for money. If you have never been here, visit as a matter of urgency because as soon as people realise how good it is you will struggle to get a reservation. I can assure you the cost of your meal... More

Just had another very good Sunday Lunch at Olivers. The new Summer menu is very tasty along with some nice new wines. Service was up to the usual high standard thanks to James and staff. Looking forward to our next visit.

We visited Olivers on Sunday for lunch and once again we were not disappointed, the food was up to its usually high standard in both quality and value James had added some new wines to his list and we found a lovely Chardonnay from Chile. Thanks to James and his staff for a great lunch

Booked this restaurant for my daughters 23rd birthday celebration. Hadn't been here before but reviews were good. Service was friendly. We were given a set menu where 2 courses were say £18 and 3 course was £25. I chose the mushroom and goats cheese starter which was lovely and the sea bass for mains which was a tad overcooked/dry. Others... More

Dear Mad donna, Thank you for your visit to Olivers to celebrate you daughter's birthday. We are really pleased you all enjoyed our lovely food & great friendly service. However, I think you have got in quite a muddle over your recollection of our pricing. Just to clarify, in the week (when you visited) we offer just one set menu... More

We (my husband and I with our 3 year old) went to Oliver's a few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed the food so much we booked there and then to return for an evening (sans child!). Such a good move! Whilst not planned, we ended up having three courses because the food was so good! Actually, good... More

Been here several times, mainly at lunchtime but a couple of times in the evening. Service has always been great and one of the main reasons for return visits, food is very good both meat and fish dishes, the breads with dipping oils are delicious and great whilst you're making your mind up what to order. The pate with focaccia... More

Visited Olivers last night with my husband and sister and had a lovely evening. We all chose different starters, mains and desserts and they were excellent. The atmosphere was relaxing. Customer service superb. Will definitely invite friends in the near future to enjoy a wonderful dining experience.
