Almost perfect, we just found the chairs a little uncomfortable, but everything else was excellent, looking forward to our next visit

As friendly and efficient as ever....and great food and atmosphere! And they remembered one comment made at time of booking that it was our anniversary - presented us with plate of petit fours and Happy Anniversary in chocolate around the rim! Impressed

From the moment we received a personal letter of welcome from the owners we knew that this was a place that prided itself on attention to detail and knew how to make its guests feel valued. The food was outstandingly good and presented with real care by attentive, friendly staff. The dining rooms have a delightfully informal and intimate atmosphere - all the ingredients for a memorable evening. The adjoining Beech House accommodation is excellent, too - definitely worth treating yourself and staying over in this lovely corner of England.

I go from Ipswich to Nottingham quite often and always stop for lunch at The Olive Branch. It’s my favourite place to eat and the drinks are also excellent. The Beech House is also a lovely place to stay. Keep up the good work!

We were absolutely delighted with our experience! in particular, your approach to allowing dogs into both your bedrooms over at Beech House and into the pub for meals was definitely the MOST doggy friendly we have ever encountered. Without exception, your staff went beyond expectations - the service was spot on, the food delicious and everyone greeted the dog and were mindful of his needs and space. Finally - the laminated dog walk map was a great idea ! We will be back!

I attended the Masterclass in the morning which was brilliant, I learnt so much. Followed by lunch which was superb. This was my second visit for lunch and it certainly will not be my last, the food is good quality and the staff very friendly.

Food was incredible! Had the haddock and bream dishes. Love the sharing board and warm piece of bread to start. Peach Melba Eton mess, wasn’t enough meringue and seemed slightly less special compared to the outstanding mains. We had 3 different people serve us which made it slightly more in personal and less likely to tip as 2 of the 3 were great but 1 of the waiters approach was very timid and came across awkward at times. Would prefer to have our own allocates waiter/waitress to serve the entire meal. The terracotta walls are abit dated, decor could do with brightening up. Curtains were drawn closed too when we came and it was still day light, not sure why?
