The chef clearly does not understand "medium" in terms of steak preparation it arrived almost still pulsing. However, nice place with pleasant surroundings. Will go again just to see if it was a one-off.

We decided to travel over to the Olive Branch in pursuit of good food and a lovely New Year both of which we achieved - and more! This is a fabulous place to spend a couple of days. A lovely warm welcome, a very pleasant room which was well equipt and clean and fantastic food. We explored the local area... More

What a pleasure that was! Visited The Olive Branch Inn on Sunday and it was nothing short of fantastic! Such a warm welcome, with probably some of the finest friendly staff I've had the pleasure to be served by! Special mentions to Louise and Amy who were really lovely! Plus as if that wasn't good enough, the food we had... More

Had a delicious meal here with friends. This is a cosy little place with very good food and lovely staff. Standout dish for me was the sticky toffee pudding. Would certainly eat here again.

We chose this place because it's approx. half way from Rochdale to the other side of Huddersfield and it got good reviews on here. We were seated at the table quite quickly and the service was very good. Food was tasty and I had the Beef Cheek which I hadn't had before. The wine list is fairly extensive and not... More

Had been thinking for a while about visiting this restaurant. Based on reviews and after looking at the menu on their website, decided to book for our wedding anniversary. Arrived and ordered a drink at the bar whilst perusing the menu before being shown to our table. My wife and I ordered three courses from the a la carte menu... More

Beautiful meal in a relaxed atmosphere. Plenty of choice from the menu and specials board. A lovely way to spend a Saturday night.

Booked a meal here for myself and my husband to celebrate the start of a new year. When we arrived at the restaurant it was very busy as a party had obviously just finished their dinner in the side room. The bar was very busy and we were left waiting for our table for about 15 minutes whilst they cleaned... More

I have visited the Olive Branch regularly over the last ten years or so and always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. However, on my most recent visit I was genuinely disappointed. I came on the 17th Dec with my mum, we had really been looking forward to it but in the end we left feeling that it would be our... More
