Looks a bit, er, ad hoc, from the outside, & yes, it`s pretty compact inside, but, well, the food is extremely tasty, the staff friendly, and we highly recommend it!

The ambience was worth of a visit. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and very considerate of my food allergies.

The Olive Branch hosted a special tasting evening for The Robin Cancer Trust recently, and the food did not fail to please. I particularly liked the aubergine hummus - lots of flavour - and the other dishes were tasty and varied. The baklava was delicious too. Excellent service.

None of us were vegan, and to be honest that seemed irrelevant. The food was delicious! A limited menu, warmed up in the microwave in front of you, with limited amounts to last the evening service. Doesn't sound great?! It is! It's clearly cooked with love and attention to detail at a separate location, but lovingly prepared in front of you with many different sides. Great friendly service too. Oh, and the baklava are amazing! We would definitely go again!
