Loved it. We sat outside with the dog and everything was great. Portions were just right for summer lunch. We are now working out how we can stay overnight!

Sunday evening not full but I’m sure Thurs/Fri/Sat evenings...great atmosphere and value for money. Thought the food presentation and taste outstanding. Certainly one of the best gastro pubs, we have eaten in the UK.....beats most of the good London restaurants as well.

We have used been to the Olive Branch fairly regularly for many years even holding family parties there in the private room. We have never had any problem with the food and whilst this time the quality was superb as always, the portion sizes were ridiculously small. The tables in the bar area were swamped with people around them at the bar. Although we knew we would be in that area I think these tables need to be kept for smaller parties and not larger ones like ours (6 people). For those of us on the chairs with our backs to the bar we were constantly being bumped into by people behind us and looked over when eating so a bit disconcerting.

Our second visit in a month. We have now visited for both lunch and an evening meal and will certainly attend again. The welcome is friendly, the service unobtrusive but efficient and the atmosphere just what is wanted for a relaxed evening with friends. The food remains as noted in the Good Food guide.

Thank you for a very special afternoon and evening in your beautiful garden and a very enjoyable meal. We had the gourmet menu with the wine flight. The menu was interesting and the food excellent, one of our most memorable meals. The wines complimented the food really well and the wine waiter was well informed and very interesting. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a nice overnight stay in one of the very comfortable and well equipped rooms complete with our dog! Breakfast was excellent too. We shall plan another stay when the winter gourmet menu comes out. Thank you all very much.

A most delightful stay. Bedroom lovely with a very comfortable bed. The food was really good with perfect attention to food allergies. Your staff were all absolutely fabulous, one, in fact came especially to say goodbye to us before he went off duty. Just sorry that I didn't take their name to say a special thank you.

Idyllic location, superb food, and lovely service. I can't think of a place I would rather go to dine - have been back on several occasions over the years, each visit as good, if not better than the last. A really special place.
