Food was very good - swordfish was perfectly cooked. Wine list quite small but we managed to find something good. Very pleased to find three courses for two people and a bottle of wine for £55.

Lacks atmosphere and design. Decor clean but unthemed and soulless. Food was excellent and well presented. Staff very friendly and professional.

The Olive Tree is a very good but quite small Restaurant and I am not sure whether they would accept a booking of 15. I would recommend speaking with them direct as you would need to book well in advance.
