2 years ago I needed a big venue for my 50th birthday meal. Fat Olive catered for 44 people effortlessly(or at least they made it look that way!) Returned last night for a colleague's retirement meal and impressed to find the standards are still so high and the food still so delicious. The staff are very friendly and make every... More

Visited on Thursday for an early Mothers Day lunch. Great food, great service. All four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Starters were served in good time and soon followed by our mains. Good size portions that we weren't able to finish. We would definitely visit again.

Our first visit after recommendation and TA reviews. Table at 7.30 pm Sunday evening and it was quite busy on arrival but quietened down around 8 pm. Good service and food is very good and tasty. The restaurant appears to cater more for larger groups rather than couples. The decor is very pleasant but makes the restaurant quite noisy when... More

I came here last week, it wasn't a bad meal, just had better. You don't get much food for your money, and as a veggie, I found there wasn't much choice. Looking at the menu I felt like going somewhere else. I got the lasagna it came in a bowl with just a smal piece, no side or veg or... More

A bit of confusion when trying to book the table, however they were able to accommodate us at the time requested. The table was ready for us, possibly not the best position in the room near to the entrance and it was bit draughty. Everything was available on the menu and service was good. Food came swiftly and very tasty... More

I was looking forward to my first visit to this restaurant after hearing lots of good things about it. We had booked a table for 7.30 weeks in advance, however upon arriving the table wasn't ready and we were asked to sit at the bar area until called, this was very cramped and only 2 seats free fir 8 of...

Best quality food in the area. If you take advantage of the special offers available most weekdays, it also offers excellent value. Service is good and staff are friendly.

Having been let down by the menu at another establishment, we visited this restaurant as it was the closest alternative. Well, we weren't expecting a lot but the service, atmosphere and food was great! Cannot believe we have never been here before, and we will definitely be returning. I have to say that my mum is critical of just about... More

We popped in here for a drink. The staff were warm and welcoming and the beer was fresh! I think we will come back and sample the food, as they smelled absolutely gorgeous!
