With the additional benefit of the 2020 offer for Winter DB&B and the luxurious Biscuit room it was a wonderful Gourmet dinner and excellent value for money.

Birthday celebration lunch for my wife. We have always enjoyed the Olive Branch but had not dined for some years. Great atmosphere, welcoming log fire and friendly and attentive service throughout. The food was excellent, perhaps the best Sea Bass I have tasted. Wines and drinks a perfect accompaniment-and the overall price extremely reasonable. We will be back-Thank You!

We much enjoyed all aspects of our visit and lunch. The beetroot dish was exceptional as was the ham hock. We thought that the 'dressing' touches were imaginative and flavoursome. We look forward to future visits.

Fantastic service especially with a baby. They couldn’t do enough and service was super speedy ( very important when baby involved) Super yummy bread, butter, the croquette with the pork dish was perfect, if only they were served as a side dish, and the lamb dish was excellent... couldn’t fault it for the value too Thank you We will definitely be back for the Sunday roast

We can not fault the Olive branch, the food was exceptional. We live in london so we have our choice of fine dining but we must say we were impressed with the Olive Branch. The team were very attentive and service was super fast! Thank you for making our anniversary so special :) if we are ever back we will return

We thought the food was excellent I thought the waiters were very quiet and didn’t check if our food was ok and didn’t ask us if we required anything once meal was served we had to ask. Just a small thing otherwise absolutely perfect food was amazing And lovely setting

This place is an absolute gem. Exquisite food, and lots of little touches in the room which in itself was beautifully decorated with quality fixtures and fittings. If you want a treat away from the hustle and bustle with food to awaken your taste buds, this team of people won't let you down.
