Having eaten here before (3 years ago) I was very disappointed with the quality of food. This place used to be one of the best in Chester - standards have fallen a long way. No nibbles with your drinks, no appetisers with your meal. The...More

We stayed at the Green Bough and ate at the Olive Restaurant for dinner. Unlike most small hotels, we were treated and served as if in a professional restaurant. The service and attention was second to none. The menu was limited but the food was...More

After a truly shocking meal at MPW's the previous evening, this was exactly what we needed. Unpretentious, perfectly prepared food, cooked for us as indiviuals, arriving piping hot and beautifully flavoured.

The Olive Tree may be in Chester, nestled in the sumptuous womb of the Green Bough Hotel, a luxury Victorian townhouse hotel, but for all the world it can feel like you've been transported to Tuscany. Rich Italian wallpaper and beautiful Italianate oil paintings grace the walls. Happily, you can take your time absorbing the space - a table is yours once seated. Savoy-trained chef/patron Philip Martin brings together an eclectic mix of aromas and flavours in an extensive, weekly-changing menu of innovative dishes epitomised by assiette of seafood - a delightful offering of red mullet, brill and king scallops; and Mediterranean vegetables with goats' cheese and parmesan crust. On cold evenings, it's nice to sit nibbling canap��s by the smouldering 17th century lounge fireplace. Attentive service.
