We decided to book a table for lunch as this had been a place we'd been wanting to try for a while...come the day we were due to go we actually had to delay our table not once but twice. This didn't seem to be a problem and when phoning to let them know...they dealt with it brilliantly and were very helpful.
When entering the restaurant we noticed that there was only one other table in use...probably because this was a rather late lunch which was down to us pushing our visit back twice. Feeling rather out of place as the other table was full of business type people....we were very casually dressed. We went ahead and ordered.
I went for a Rump Steak with chips and a pink peppercorn sauce (at no extra cost) whilst my friend opted for the Olive Tree Burger. The food came after a short wait.... both meals were a nice surprise as they were extremely tasty! The peppercorn sauce was one of the better ones I've had....and I've had a lot. The serving of chips was very generous indeed. The ketchup for the Burger came in a very sweet little jar which you might use to store marmalade in (see picture).
When the bill came we noticed they had over charged us....(I booked using tastecard which gives you a 241 offer). This was quickly rectified though. We didn't leave a tip as they stuck a 10% service charge on the bill. This always annoys me...especially seeing as I didn't think the service we received really deserved a tip. I know we were late and it was getting towards the end of the lunch service; but they should have made more of an effort. I wouldn't say they were rude....just not as friendly as they could have been.
All in all...a great lunch in a lovely part of town..
Give them a try next time you're in the area.
