“A hidden gem!”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

.
In a town almost overwhelmed by cafes and takeaways of all sorts, the Olive Grove Bistro is a breath of fresh air! It is tucked away in a quiet courtyard just off the main, pedestrian area of Bridge Street (look for the British Heart Foundation shop).

The menu is Mediterranean in style and offers a variety of tasty dishes from tapas to good-sized main courses, including pizzas. A broad spread of dishes originate from Spain, Greece, and Italy; all are very reasonably-priced.

In addition to the cosy restaurant, there is a covered outside deck area – ideal for warm days. All of the facilities are clean and tidy.

Having taken breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the Olive Grove on various occasions over the past few months, I can vouch for the high quality of food and service. The Olive Grove is run by friendly local folk with a keen interest in serving good food well.

A tasty Breakfast Bruschetta starts the day well; the Mixed Tapas are excellent; the evening meals (standard menu and special occasions) are well thought out and delivered. The wine list is fair and exceptionally well-priced – a truly “refreshing change”!

In summary: highly-recommended as a bistro – seek it out!

“Tucked away but make sure you find it”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

This is a small intimate restaurant that can cope with about 30 people at any one time. We had excellent polite service and a very good menu choice.
Either tapas or full italian meals are available and are served with both quality and quantity.
two meals including stareters and a drink cost £ 27.00.
Very good value.

“A fantastic place to dine with outstanding staff.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I went with two girlfriends for afternoon tapas. This is a gorgeous little restaurant with an amazing atmosphere. Rustic interior with a great ambience and staff who are friendly and keen to make it a great experience. I will be going back and spreading the word that Olive Grove is a fabulous place.

“Special Diets”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

When we take our daughter here for lunch they look after her very well she is gluten dairy free vegetarian.
They always prepare her a lovely salad either gluten free pasta or rice to go with it plus a lovely warm gluten free roll.
We often eat here on our own every thing we have tried has been first class lovely staff lovely quite peaceful place to eat.
Tip if you haven't room for cake or desert they will put in box to take out.
