Well worth the journey from Birmingham for a jaunt around the town and lunch at the Olive Tree. Have eaten here at least half a dozen times and never been disappointed. Fresh , clean surroundings and a 2 or 3 course lunch menu at a very reasonable price. The free bread and olives gives it a French feel and is... More

Ranked so high on the list of restaurants to visit in Lichfield it is certainly worth a visit: and regardless of my rating, I would still suggest it is worth a visit. On the rare occasion my wife and I can enjoy a meal without the kids we wanted something a little more refined. The audience being catered for at... More

Lunch at The Olive Tree last Thursday was a last minute decision. What a great choice it was to go there. From the moment we walked in, we were looked after extremely well by the very pleasant waitress. The menu choices were excellent, the only difficulty was making a choice from so many tempting options. The food itself was presented... More

It can be a nightmare going out to eat at times with food intolerances however the ladies who served me went out of their way to make sure I didn’t have anything I shouldn’t and offered... More

Had a lovely meal here. Both of us had Steak from the extra menu at an addition cost to the set menu. The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and the sides were also of high quality if a little small in the size of the portion. The desserts were a little disappointing but adequate. The staff were very attentive... More
