About The Olive Branch
The Good Pub Guide 2014 - Pub of the Year
Our entry in the 2014 Guide says: “The civilised Olive Branch prompts readers to superlatives: ‘service as good as it gets’; ‘sublime food’; ‘how have they managed to maintain such consistently high standards?’; ‘the ultimate pub experience’. It’s a first class all-rounder.”
Delicious food with attentive staff and wonderful service. I have booked another meal there today.
Excellent Sunday roast
Thankyou we had a wonderful time with excellent food & you accommodated our very fussy granddaughter very well
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!
Friendly staff , beautiful food and really well presented, good wine too loved everything about it
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.
Relaxed atmosphere, absolutely wonderful food accompanied by an interesting flight of wines from less obvious european countries. A delight
Had a lovely lunch and intend to return for one of your gourmet meals!
Fantastic food, staff and premises - couldn’t be better!
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.
Had the set meal. Starter lovely, beef great, Yorkshire pudding soggy. I do like a soft, squidgy meringue thats not too sweet! we will still be coming back though!
Wonderful atmosphere and fantastic flavoursome food. Service was impeccable
Very friendly staff members - obviously well trained.
Excellent as always!
Staying at the Olive Branch is a must ! The rooms are beautiful and comfortable Our dinner in the restaurant was first class We will definitely be back ! Thankyou to all the staff for an enjoyable stay
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 ?
We meet friends from Derbyshire each year at the mid point between them and us in Cambridge. Wish you were nearer! Trevor Marcuson
Excellent location, wonderful ambiance, staff very friendly and efficient. The food Just excellent - using local products. Tasty and so well presented. Not local to us but more than happy to make the long drive for such a marvellous lunch.
Fantastic lunch, Fantastic service , Fantastic cocktails, would highly recommend a visit to the Olive Branch,
3rd visit to The Olive Branch this year . We are an hour's drive away but the delicious beautifully presented food is worth the trip. The service is always excellent. Lots to enjoy about this lovely setting.
All three courses were superb, service spot on, thanks again for a lovely evening.
Excellent food and ambiance.
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
