Thank you to the team at The Olive Branch for wonderful service, hospitality and above all, amazing food and drink. You helped us celebrate a ‘significant’ wedding anniversary in style!

It was our daughters 21st birthday and we had lunch for four. The staff decorated her desert plate with a birthday greeting. Nice touch

Fabulous food with a superb flight of wines which we would not otherwise have chosen. The service was excellent and the birthday message on the pudding was a nice touch.

Combined our meal with a stay in the Beeches house opposite. That was really lovely and the gourmet dinner bed and breakfast - 10 out of 10. I think breakfast should get a mention; I had the kedgeree which was delicious (wild rice) but a rather generous portion. The poached duck egg was perfectly cooked. A thoughtfully paced basket of alka seltzer etc was thankfully not needed. Made everyone laugh though which is an excellent way to start the morning.

First timer - can't afford to eat in this standard of restaurant normally but had a voucher which softened the blow of a £99 bill; can't fault the food as delicious and service was great - all staff really friendly. Would I return? Absolutely, but not likely due to the prices.

One of my favourite places to eat and relax, it’s an hour away from where we live. Booked in saying my wife is gluten/lactose intolerant so we understand that options are limited . She was given a dry plate of food with no attempt at a sauce why? Certain items where removed but not replaced however I paid Full price why ? I am not lactose or gluten free . Where was my bread and butter Where was my wine ? No one asked gave me a list but no follow up . I had th roast beef - beef lovely tad salty Gravy was flavourless and brown - where was the lovely gravy’s and sauces you used to do ? Yorkshire was a lump of stodgy stuff Roast potatoes where hard and had no fluff at all I paid £80 very disappointing your standards are slipping . This is the third time this year I have been and have been disappointed . What steps are you going to take to rectify ?

Our sixth or seventh visit to the Olive Branch. We wouldn't keep returning if we didn't thoroughly enjoy ourselves. Keep up the excellent standards that you have set yourselves. Thank you so much. Tom P
