WHAT has happened to this restaurant??? It's a while since we have visited and we noticed a marked difference in the place. There were 5 staff on duty but we waited over half an hour for our order to be taken. They were NOT busy. The place is very 'tired' and jaded. What has happened to the classy wooden furniture?...

Shared Olive is one of the best little restaurants I have visited , the food is all freshly cooked plus presentation perfect. I visited yesterday plus last Friday and would recommend this restaurant for a visit. I have to add the waitress who was alone worked perfectly a gem in herself . Lynda

Took the mum in law for sunday lunch for her birthday. I have had a bad experience there before, hair in food and drink spilled all over me by very grumpy waitress, service very slow. I decided to give it another chance as MIL likes it. Food ok, but as usual the service was incredibly slow. Just over 2 hours... More

Shared Olive still delivers in every way. Great quality food, good staff, nice atmosphere - just what you want! We haven't been for a while - but that is no reflection on the restaurant, which has always been one of our favourites - and on this showing, will continue to be one. Thanks to everyone, and see you soon!

Another excellent meal at The Shared Olive, choosing dishes from the extensive tapas menu. Superb flavours, expertly prepared and all served in the lovely atmosphere of this village restaurant. Many thanks to Danny and the team for another lovely evening.

Visited this restaurant this week for our anniversary and due to it being mid week had the kids with us. Everything was perfect from the waitress, service to the food and ambience. Both of my girls are plain eaters but they loved the food and also the positive attention they received from the waitress. Excellent!

We booked the Shared Olive for a pre-wedding meal for family. There were 12 of us, and our ages ranged from 16 to 83 years of age. From the minute we sat down the service was terrible. The waitress was so rude and never smiled the whole evening. I ordered a medium-rare steak for my daughter - it was served... More

Went there yesterday and arrived quite late, after 2.00. All the staff where lovely and made us feel very relaxed. Did cater for gluten free. 2 of us had the risotto which I can vouch for ( I loved the fried crispy kale on top), and other 2 had the smoked haddock pasta dish which I can only guess was... More
