About The Olive Branch

The Good Pub Guide 2020 - Top 10 Pubs
Leicestershire & Rutland County Dining Pub of the Year
AA 4 Gold Star Inn

Tim Hayward Financial Times Review Sept 2019 - 'The Olive Branch filled me with joy. The surroundings are charming with a degree of ramshackleness that bespeaks shy authenticity. It was filled with happy people — locals who can’t believe their luck and a few travellers who know its secret.'

Cuisine: British

Very happy to visit The Olive Branch. Tables placed well in excess of the guideline social distancing. I would have no hesitation in describing this as a 'safe' venue for dining. Not to mention the lovely food and excellent service.

Loved our first meal out in months . Felt very safe and thoroughly spoilt by your wonderful ambience, lovely staff, excellent food and wine . Wish we were near enough to make a regular booking but the quality of everything means it’s well worth the journey for a treat .

My wife and I chose Olive Branch to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary. It was in the first week of the dining pub reopening after lockdown. The Olive Branch has adapted excellently to abide by the covid 19 restrictions. We felt very safe. The food as always was very good and extremely good value. They produced a personalised menu to cater for my food allergies! My wife highly recommended the pistaccio curd meringue desert 👍

Everything about our 2 night stay was just superb. We really could not fault a single thing!! Both the pub & Beech House have a certain charm which immediately makes you relaxed. The staff without exception were all friendly and smiling!! The food was amazing......need I say any more...Eccles Cakes will never be the same again, until I return!! The Team at the Olive Branch have got it so right.......long may it continue.....thank you

A superb dining experience, where the food not only tasted amazing, was also presented in an exceptional way. The staff as always were friendly, professional and knowledgeable about their food and wine. A complete 5 star experience and my opinion worthy of a Michelin star.
