Description: We have created a dining environment with a classic mix of the stylish and the contemporary, within the wonders of one of the City's most historic buildings.Split across three floors, the ground floor and first floor serve as a dining area, whilst the cellar has been transformed into a magnificent cocktail bar area, with the low brick ceilings creating an intimate and relaxing area, perfect for a pre or post dinner drink. Our outdoor courtyard also has seating for up to 40 people, perfect for a bite to eat or a coffee in the sunshine.We aim for this landmark building to once again become synonymous with top class dining in the City of Worcester.

My friend and I were a walk in on a quiet week day evening. Staff were accommodating and efficient. The restaurant was clean and the tables were set nicely. The lobster pasta, lemon tart and Prosecco were delicious. I could have personally eaten more pasta. There wasn't a lot of atmosphere, as it was a quiet evening. The restaurant was romantically lit, which was lovely, warm and cosy. It would have set the scene well for a romantic evening.

We had planned eat at a country pub outside Worcester but on arrival we found that they chose not to serve food on a Monday and our plan was ruined. We had always meant to try The Olive Branch and so resorted to plan B and arrived there at 12.35 pm. There was no one in the dining room and it was cold. We looked at the menu and ordered tapas. We had wine and olives while we waited and were pleased with the wine. The olives were as you would expect, perfectly fine.

The tapas were presented well and were tasty. After a while three other tables were occupied and the atmosphere improved slightly. The place warmed up a bit.

The food was fine and good value.

Went here New Year's Eve and we were not disappointed. It was not overfilled, and trifold was fantastic. We had three courses and between a party if 5 there was not a single complaint.
The staff were extremely friendly and the one of the waitresses sang and was amazing!
After eating we want for drinks in the bar which was lovely a cosy and was a perfect end to the evening. Can't wait to come back soon. Thank you for a fab end to what had been a horrible year.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating, despite being very busy. The food was good value for money, but most of all, we loved the wine bar downstairs. It is underground, cosy and a great place for a drink after dinner.

I visited the Olive Branch with three work colleagues for evening dinner. On arrival we were offerred drinks in the lounge but we chose to be shown straight to our table which was ready for us upstairs. The dining room decor is quite plain but it did create the right dining atmosphere especially with other diners being there. We selected dishes from a very interesting and diverse fixed price three course menu with the friendly staff helping us with any questions we had about particular dishes. We all had excellent meals, with courses being served at just the right pace and dishes prepared to a high standard. Overall I found that the food was excellent value for money, served by courteous and frinedly staff. I will certainly be visiting again.
