About The Olive Tree

The bustling, vibrant atmosphere and elegant surroundings make this the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed dinner with family and friends.

Each day the restaurant’s chefs prepare an exciting selection of cuisine for a sumptuous evening buffet, featuring contemporary international flavours and a selection of delicious desserts, and on Sundays there is live jazz to accompany the fabulous carvery lunch.

In summer, guests also have the option of dining alfresco, relaxing on the lovely open-air terrace (great for people-watching) with views towards the Roman Road golf course.

The Olive Tree is an ideal location for relaxed family dining with a children’s menu available all day, every day and activity sheets on hand to keep little ones entertained.

Very disappointed. Good choice of food, however, the Hot food was definitely not hot, but Luke warm. Service in the restaurant and Merlins atrocious. Had to wait so long for our drinks . Maybe all the staff were at other Xmas functions?? Definitely not 5 star service.

Twice I’ve eaten here for evening meals and both times I found the salad great - but the main meals really fell short and lacked flavour

AWFUL. Buffet meal was tasteless and swimming in oil. Counters were dirty where other diners had spilt food. Empty food trays were not replaced with fresh trays, even when I asked for fresh gravy pot as the one out was empty, staff didn't wipe the remnants of previously spilt gravy from the counter. There was a very loud ice cream machine in amongst the diners which was very irritating. Atmosphere was non existent. Dress code is suppose to be 'smart/casual' yet other guests were in trainers, t-suits and hoodies, To top it all, when we eventually managed to order a drink to the table, we were charged a service charge to bring us glass of wine!

We were very disappointed with the restaurant and meal. Much of the main dishes were not hot, overcooked and lacked flavour, the plates were cold and the salt and pepper pots at our table both empty. Only one member of staff was helpful, the others were scarce or unable to help as for example asked where the roast lamb dish was............we found it with the curries! To automatically add a service charge when little service required was greedy .

Personally I would have preferred not to be seated so near to the main restaurant reception as I was constantly hearing the same “have you been here before” comments ... but I suppose somebody has to be seated there and a rarely complain

We ordered some drinks at the table which we attempted to pay for as we left. There was no record of the drinks so the staff kindly said they were on the house as it was my Fiancé’s birthday. Unfortunately a bill was put under our door over night for the drinks. This left us feeling like we had done wrong and took the shine off what would have been a nice gesture from the Celtic Manor. Luckily the staff on reception again waived the bill but it really did take the shine off things.

Staff lovely and food, just don't understand why you need to put 10% service charge on two drinks, which was 78p, you already charge high prices for your drinks which is fine, but to slip in a service charge in a buffet restaurant is just a bit much and stopped me buying another drink the following night in your restaurant out of principal.

The food was excellent. There was a large variety catering for all food preferences. Would have been better if the lovely music being played could have been heard in the garden room as it was very quiet in there and also the servers were taken plates away before the rest of the table had finished eating which is not good table etiquette

The food was very good and there was a varied selection, sadly the plates were cold despite being in a plate warmer and this resulted in the food going cold very quickly. At breakfast the toast was always cold and we would have preferred to cook our own toast. There was a great choice of food at breakfast, which was terrific other than the toast.

Me and my husband had an amazing experience dining at the Olive Tree. There was so much choice of food, all of which was at a high standard and tasted amazing ! We had breakfast there the next morning and that was just as good! We both left very full and very satisfied. We have absolutely no complaints at all and would definitely come back. I would also like to add how polite and helpful the staff were too. This is a place I will be recommending to all my friends and family!

After a disappointing evening meal in January 2018, with compliments of the Celtic Manor I was able to bring my family back for a Sunday lunch. We had a fantastic time, food was amazing and the young lady who looked after us was fantastic. A great time had by all my family.
