Having attended the Kitchen Masterclass on butchery I have to say a big thank you to everyone for making the experience so enjoyable and particularly Chris for his first class tuition. All this followed by a superb Tasting menu made the day a most memorable occasion. Thanks again to all.

Absolutely lovely way to spend a Saturday lunch time. Great wine recommendation, food was super. Puddings were the show stopper, outrageously good. Thanks for a great girlie lunch, we all loved it.

Apologies - this was in Spam but now found. Our first visit to The Olive Branch since 82-84 when I was at RAF Cottesmore - good memories and a fantastic meal - very many thanks. We will return although as we live in North Norfolk it has to be a special occasion!

Delightful lunch to celebrate my husband's birthday, couldn't really fault it. Just one comment, the pastry on the pork pie starter was a tad hard, my husband nearly shot it under an adjoining diner!

We booked on a dinner, B&B deal at GBP250. But after checking the set menu we did not really take to it (lots of game and fish....I'm a veggie and my husband is fussy!) Therefore we chose separate items from the a la carte and vegetarian menus. The food was delicious! Service was great. My husband was disappointed not to find inexpensive Australian shiraz on your wine list, which is his favourite wine, and was overall disappointed with the wines he selected. The rooms at Beech House were exquisite, every need catered for. It was very comfortable and cosy, and we will definitely be back!
