“Great Food Great Service”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

We have visited this small Turkish restaurant a few times and invited our friends to join us Saturday evening hoping they too would enjoy the same level of service food and ambience we had experienced on our previous visits. On arrival we were shown to our table and offered drinks immediately the staff are cheery, friendly, and very efficient we each choose our starter and main meal which arrived a short time after and was as good as ever we had all decided we wouldn't have a dessert as the meals are plentiful, but very cleverly a waiter arrived with a tray showing each of the desserts needless to say we found room and ordered Lemon meringue, Baklava, our friends both ordered tiramisu each was very good and our friends said the Tiramisu was superb.
Not a seat was empty longer than to clean and reset tables and people being turned away it is a great little restaurant and we will be visiting again soon. Definitely advise advance booking we have also visited mid week and found it to be fully booked.

“Absolutely divine Turkish food and lovely staff”
Reviewed July 5, 2014

We ate here for lunch recently and the food was incredible. The owner was more than happy for us to share a starter and main (as my husband was off to the chippy.) I had fried halloumi with salad and yoghurt for starters which was perfectly cooked and absolutely divine, followed by a Kusbasili Pide, a kind of open pizza, comprising marinated lamb, onion, peppers, parsley & tomato.The dough and filling were perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned.

The waiter who served us was incredibly helpful and friendly, we were served very quickly, he told me the name of the fantastic Turkish music that was playing and when I admired the Turkish stained-glass mosaic lamps on every table, he told me that they could source them for me if needed.

A lovely experience, we will be visiting again every time we go back to Hebden Bridge, highly recommended.

“Good food in a relaxed atmosphere.”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We were visiting a friend in Hebden Bridge and she suggested the Olive Branch. We were certainly pleased that she did. The three of us met up for some very tasty food in a relaxed atmosphere.

It has no pretentions, having a genuine bistro feel. There is an extensive menu, which is varied enough to satisfy all tastes, including the most demanding vegetarian. For drinks, we plumped for the cheapest red and that didn't let us down either.

All in all, if you're looking for an informal evening with good food and service, the Olive Branch is certainly worth a visit.
