“Great quality food”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

We met friends for a Christmas catch up on Tuesday evening and were really impressed by the Olive Branch. We'd driven past a few times but it hadn't stood out as a 'must visit' place. However, friends told us how good it was so we were looking forward to the meal.

And it was definitely the food that stood out. Service was friendly, quick and very accurate, but it was the various dishes that will stick in the memory - particularly the lamb chops, perfectly cooked and clearly a good source too. We had the hot mixed mezze to start and then I had the mixed kebabs while my wife had the chicken main course.

There are plenty of good quality 'chef specials' as well as some good value offers, such as a starter and a main for around £12 (as I recall, I may be wrong). There was certainly one great deal for £14.95.

Enjoyed my baklava, the coffee was good and the wine was good too, although the servings are so large, you're probably better off with a bottle rather than a couple of glasses each.

Definitely returning - probably in the next few weeks! Highly recommended.

“Lovely place good food”
Reviewed December 12, 2013 via mobile

We have been to Hebdon Bridge numerous times and walked past this place without going in well not anymore.
We went on a Saturday night with friends who have dined here many times and recommended it.
The place was packed and the atmosphere is just right.
The food was delicious with two platter starters one being the veggie version. Everything was lovely and tasty.
The mains being the same very good meal will definitely go back.

“Great Food, Great Time”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

We dined at The Olive Branch on a Saturday evening while staying in Hebden Bridge. Luckily we had booked a table so managed to get in, the restaurant I imagine is always busy however it was the evening of the Christmas light switch so so probably even busier than normal. The staff were so warm and welcoming and you got a sense that this was due to their genuine passion for making people have a wonderful evening. To start, we shared the nachos and the cheese rolls which were both beautiful, really tasty. For main we both had a pizza, mine was the best pizza I've ever had with delicious toppings and a perfect stone baked base. We had such a great time in this lovely restaurant, thank-you The Olive Branch for making our visit to Hebden Bridge so special :-) highly recommended!

“A real gem!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

Been here a few times and keep coming back for the amazing food. Brilliant choice of dishes, all prepared with fresh and authentic ingredients. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. This is definitely a place not to miss if you want to try something a bit different when out in Hebden.

“Fabulous food and friendly staff”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

The Olive Branch is our favourite place to eat in Hebden Bridge. The food is always fantastic and the take away meals are equally as great quality. The prices are very competitive and the lunchtime deals are great. The restaurant itself, whilst compact and cosy, is beautifully decorated and embraces its Turkish roots. Staff are friendly and welcoming and even during busy periods they have time to chat and smile. Keep up the good work!
