Description: Tucked away in the market town of Romsey, The Olive Tree boasts top-notch food, high-end drinks and all the cosiness and comfort you would expect from a country pub. Relaxed and welcoming, our pub is the perfect place for a post-work pint, lively family meals, Sunday lunch in front of the open fire, or a chilled out evening listening to our weekly line up of live music.

I visited the restaurant today with a friend having read some great positive reviews, I went with a high level of optimism thinking we would surely have a fab time. To my disappointment, yet understandable, the heating was not working but we were told there was a wait of 25mins on food. Having ordered at 1410 we were still waiting for our starter at 1455! As you can imagine, we weren't impressed so paid for our drinks and left......

I know Sundays tend to be busy and any reasonable person would appreciate there would be a wait....however 45mins for a starter is taking it too far. Have they not thought of perhaps hiring more staff to accommodate/factor in the weekends?

We ate at the olive tree this evening and I have to say that it was first class. The food, service and atmosphere could not be faulted. When ever I go to romsey I visit this pub and it just seems to get better and better with every visit.

Visited Romsey at the weekend and met up with my mother-in-law. Had a lovely lunch, good wine and great atmosphere. Would recommend to friends.
