We cannot praise The Olive Branch high enough. They have enough staff to make you feel looked after - they are always courteous, friendly and professional. The ambience is perfect as they don’t try to cram in tables in every available space - so conversations feel private. The food is just perfect. Amazing value for the quality and creativity. And the venue itself is just utterly delightful and rural. We have been a few times over the years and their standards remain high. A wonderful place. Thank you.

What a wonderful find. We loved our room, luxurious, warm and welcoming. We ate at the restaurant, the food was wonderful, beautifully presented accompanied by a delicious white wine from Kent. We will definitely be returning.

We had a perfect birthday lunch on a miserable winter day - great food and lovely fires. Last time we came we ate in the extension bit - I much preferred eating in the bar by the fire - but maybe that was mostly because of the weather!

We had a lovely Sunday lunch. Only suggestion is that the stuffed pheasant dish was light on vegetables. I had the sirloin beef which had carrot, swede, leek, potato and cauliflower cheese; which highlighted the sparse veg with the pheasant. I know we could have ordered a side but at the price a bit more veg would have been welcome. Otherwise a good experience making it worth our while to come over from Cheshire

Six of us for lunch, all food was wonderful, from the bread and herb butter down to great coffee. What came in between was inspiring and delicious. All the staff are lovely and the service was just perfect. What can I say, everything was wonderful, as usual! Thank you to all at The Olive Branch. I have run out of superlatives!
