We stayed at Beech House for 2 nights last weekend and ate at The Olive Branch both nights. We were so happy and relaxed. The food was excellent, both the A La Carte on Saturday night and the Gourmet Menu on Sunday night. A good selection of beers in the bar to start the evening off was followed by excellent... More

We have used the Olive Branch at Clipsham many times over the last few years as it is ideally positioned to meet up for family meals, the food and service have always been excellent and they have catered very well for our gluten free requirements. However, sadly today our meal fell well short of what we had come to expect.... More

Having discovered this gem by accident some years ago and returned more than once for lunch on the drive north we decided to meet some friends for dinner and stay overnight. Check-in was a bit odd - no reception as such, you just look for someone. The staff member who 'welcomed' us was distinctly abrupt, although efficient, although I suspect... More

We had a really delicious meal, with wonderful service and ambiance. The team have worked hard to create a special menu and we really enjoyed our meal. It was also nice to be able to buy a bottle of the delicious wine in the pub shop. Highly recommended

Called in for lunch, warm welcome as always . Had local trout and it was delicious and was extremely well presented. The bread was warm and you carve it yourself at the table which is nice. Reservations are recommended but they do have some tables in the bar they don't reserve and we had one of those.

Visited during a dinner b&b package here. The menu offered some unusual and delicious options. The service was first class and the ambiance perfect for an enjoyable evening. Accommodation at the Beech House was also amazing. Highly recommend this venue

Visited here on a lovely summer's day that really allowed the place to shine - it's set in wonderful gardens that are great in summer. Food was very good albeit pricey; lots of reviews on here seem to state that the place has gone downhill a bit which is a shame, I would've loved to have seen it in its... More

We booked for five people. The place was very busy but they accommodated another couple with no hesitation at no notice. The staff were friendly and well informed. The food was excellent, and bearing in mind that the restaurant was completely full, the service was quick and efficient. Two of our party had been some time before and remarked that... More

Had a business meeting with another couple and I was envious of their sea food platter as opposed to my bland steak and chips which could have done with a bit of seasoning
