As a group we go to the Oliver Branch at least twice a year. This time we found the prices seemed to have gone up and the service was very slow. Everyone enjoyed their main course and dessert, but mixed views of the starters. The goats cheese starter seemed to be very mean with the goats cheese and the cod starter was also very small and lacked flavour. We all found the timer served with the mint tea very pretentious and hope this is not the way the Olive Branch is going. It is unnecessary. So overall, we will be back for definite, but there were some concerns this time. We felt that the prices have gone up, the serving sizes have gone down, the service was lacking, but most of the food was delicious. Thank you for asking for feedback Bev

Fabulous meal this week. Everybody really enjoyed their food, with a sufficiently wide choice for all our likes - the Venison was superbly presented and maybe the most succulent I've had. Never too much and lots of flavour.

We have been fans of The Olive Branch for must be 16 or so years and we have had periods of regularly dining there and then occasionally visiting but every visit has been an absolute pleasure, if we lived near by we would be there every week. It is so relaxed and charming yet so professional. we have had some of our best ever food and wine memories from the past. We are caterers, we know how difficult it is to be this consistently good. We decided to introduce our team to our favourite place, there were 14 of us and we wanted them to be impressed but also feel comfortable and it was fantastic, you just cant fault it, it just gets better and better. Thank you so much to everyone. Martin Jayne and Michael

We & our friends had a lovely time together and a delicious meal. You very kindly made a fresh fruit salad for myself which was very much appreciated. I do think it would be good idea to have a healthy non-creamy dessert on the menu at all times.

Another lovely meal at our go to eaterie for celebrating. The Happy Anniversary message on the petit fours plate was a very nice touch too. Great food, attentive service, but you never feel rushed. And the best Bloody Mary I’ve had in a long time...thank you!

We arrived 3/4 hrs earlier but this wasn't a problem for the staff. They seated us and made us feel welcome. The service, the food, the atmosphere were fabulous. We would highly recommend the place.

We were a party of 8 who recently dined at The Olive Branch for my daughter's 18th birthday & all had a wonderful evening. The staff were very understanding when we arrived 45 minutes late due to traffic on the A1. The food, wine and service were all first class - it was one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Try the venison you wont be disappointed. Special thanks to the South African manager - sorry I didn't get his name. He was fun & really looked after us well. Thanks again, we will be back soon!!

An excellent meal- plenty of choice and each dish was well balanced and intensely yet subtly flavoured. Our favourite restaurant in the area.
