This pub/restaurant is in a very attractive country setting. The parking can be a bit tricky, don't miss the car park across the road. The atmosphere is cosy and welcoming and there is a nice little terrace outside for the summer. Food is seasonal and the menu is generally interesting and varied, but mainly TASTY!! Service is competent with a... More

We visited here with friends who had been before, and I am so glad we did. It was the most delightful experience. The meal was well balanced, beautifully cooked and iinventive without being OTT. The wine was good, although I only had a glass but the choice was good (not often the case). The two men in the group had... More

Call in without booking for lunch on Friday. Bar are pretty full but found us a space for a high class lunch all perfectly prepared and excellent taste. Service perfect and friendly. Totally faultless.

We popped in on the off-chance for lunch midweek. We hadn't booked a table (usually desirable!) but luckily there was space for us. We have dined at the Olive Branch on and off over for the last 12 years but it had been nearly a year since had last dined there. Some new faces front of house but the kitchen... More

Visited the Olive Branch again today for a family meal and pleased to report the it was back to its previous high standard. We decided to give it another try because we had had so many good meals in the past that we thought our last visit must have been a one off and thankfully it seems that it was.... More

We have been to this dining pub quite a few times over the last decade, but today's visit was after a gap of a couple of years. It didn't disappoint! The food was absolutely delicious and the service excellent. If only we lived nearer, we'd go at least once a month. And it's not only the food and service that... More

Arrived without any reservation and was immediately provided with a table in the bar area. A pleasant, though busy area. A good wine list with a range of wines by the glass. Attentive, fast and efficient service. Absolutely delicious bread and wonderful food. It seems to be a very popular place and I can see why people recommend it. I... More

My daughter treated me to a special meal for my 70th birthday. My daughter is a vegan and the comprehensive menu for her was superb. Not just one option but a full vegan menu to choose from. She had never seen this before in all the restaurants she has visited in the last 25 years. My meal was superb. I... More

I've been to the Olive branch 4 times in about 8 years so I'm not really a regular but I've totally enjoyed it every time so thought I'd finally write a review. The pub is very nicely decorated, has a warm feel without being claustrophobic, tables are well spaced and seating is comfortable. The staff are attentive without being overbearing,... More
