Booked to dine with a close friend for a special birthday. Flowers I'd ordered were magnificent. Food was simply superb, including a complimentary starter of fresh pea soup. My friend's dessert arrived with 'happy birthday' piped round the plate- a nice touch Staff friendly and knowledgeable yet polite, food and service first class.

My husband surprised me on my birthday with a fabulous trip to The Olive Branch and once again the experience was first class. We had a lovely table for two (my husband had been into the restaurant to choose the table he liked) and it was with other twos which made the ambiance really lovely for us. The food is... More

We loved this restaurant. Although it can be difficult to get a table, the cooking is exceptional and there is a lovely atmosphere. The service was excellent.

Had a lovely stop over in Beechwood House and a wonderful dinner at the Olive Branch. We selected from the five course gourmet tasting menu, with a few substitutions from the a la carte. We started with a lovely pea veloutte, followed by a starter of ham terrine. We were also laden with delicious baked bread, and offered seconds. Good... More

I've been several times over the years and am always thoroughly impressed. And the people I take always love it too. Apart from the excellent ambiance, service and food, their ability and willingness to create wonderful gluten free food is very much appreciated 😃

We've been to the Olive Branch a few times now and it has never failed to please . No exception this time. An interesting and varied menu, good service and reasonable pricing. Lunch times they now offer a fixed price option which is really good value: evidenced by the restaurant being almost full on the Monday we visited. And from... More

We visited the Olive Branch after i received a gift voucher for my birthday. Having heard great reviews we were looking forward to our visit in the days leading up to it. We booked online as one of the conditions of the voucher was to pre book. We were disappointed that on arrival there was no booking. The staff however... More

We booked a table for Tuesday lunch today after reading the rave reviews this restaurant has received. Number one problem is the very limited parking available. To make sure of a place on the car park, make a 12am booking. It is clearly ver popular. The staff are very friendly and we received a very warm welcome. This is not... More
