Description: The Olive Tree Restaurant in the Queensberry Hotel has gained local popularity and national renown as one of the premiere dining places in Bath. The hotel is a stylish contemporary boutique hotel, but the restaurant is an oasis of calm modernity, with excellent British food served with a great attention to detail in relaxed, informal surroundings.

Loved it from the moment I walked in. There is somehow the perfect balance between being really well looked after and yet not being overly fussed over and asked if the meal is ok every 5 minutes. The staff are fabulous and easy to ask for recommendations or clarifications over what a dish consists of.
The food itself was exquisite. Loved the chicken and the egg and the duck was sublime. I particularly loved the unexpected little treat in between my starter and main. If you think you do not like cauliflower soup you must try this - ambrosia in a mouthful. Will convert the most ardent of cauliflower haters.

If you are looking for an AMAZING night out I would recommend you come here

The greeting was warm and friendly, the tables are a good size and not too close together. The service was attentive but not rushed or intrusive. The food was consistently excellent. We particularly enjoyed the perfect presentation of each dish. The mix of flavours was delightful without being over-complicated or confused. We thought the menu was well balanced and a good price. We recommend this restaurant and this would be our first booking on a return trip to Bath.

We have just returned from a fantastic evening at the Olive. The staff were, as always, warm and welcoming and the food was outstanding. The quail starter ( which I was lucky enough to be the the first to sample) was delicious. All other courses followed suit and were rounded off by the most fantastic of deserts. Our thanks to the team for a lovely evening.
