We love the Lunch for less deal and often the puds such as passion fruit sorbet and passion fruit mousse are a real delight and a bargain.But sometimes cheese and grapes even if only one from the board is what is needed at the end of a meal!!

This was our third visit to the Olive Branch (whilst caravanning in the area). Once again our experience could not have been better and we will return on our next visit to Rutland.

With our friend staying with us from Italy, the Olive Branch was THE place we wanted to take him for dinner. We knew your food would be top notch but in an informal friendly atmosphere. You succeeded on all counts. Thank you so much!

As always excellent. But difficult to chose from both the menu and the wine list, would have been very happy with any or all you had on offer. Great selection. My guests particularly liked the pigeon and the venison..

We had a great night and would definitely return but only on a special occasion as it is somewhat costly, the staff were very helpful and attentive and the food was also incredible. We would definitely recommend the Olive Branch to friends and family. The customers around us seemed very pompous and didn’t treat the staff very nicely, but their self obsessed attitudes only added to our evenings entertainment.

The Olive Branch was a real find, chosen as a convenient place to stop on a long journey with an interesting looking menu. The food was beautiful and delicious, service friendly and efficient and the attention to detail in the whole place provided a tasteful and warm setting. We stayed the night and breakfast was exceptional, so good we are staying again on our way home.
