Had a lovely meal for two. We both went for the sirloin steak. My partners steak was a little rare for her liking and after bringing this to the waiters attention they offered a complimentary drink and brought out a new dish which was cooked to perfection. 5 stars and the maitre d was excellent and very welcoming.

Visit was during Covid restrictions and I’d like to think it falls short of their normal dining experience.

We have dined in the Olive Tree many times and enjoyed the buffet I know things have been difficult with Covid but we were disappointed with our meal It was very tasty but portion sizes were tiny and certainly did not represent good value

Fantastic service, beautiful food although a little above average on pricing for what it is. Only negative point is the lack of social distancing between tables. Fantastic one way signage to enter and leave restaurant but that goes out of the window when you are inside and when sitting down there isn't even one meter between guests tables...let alone the recommended two meters.

The worst service I have ever experienced in my whole life. I will be informing friends and family of the atrocious service and will recommending them to avoid this restaurant at all cost. The fact this restaurant operates in a supposedly ‘5 star’ hotel is quite honestly shameful.

We regularly stay at the resort hotel at Xmas, but the dinner we received was very poor & we were hugely disappointed. The starter bread was very bland & unenjoyable & the french fries with the main course were poor quality thin frozen chips. The desert was no more than an average desert you could get with a bar snack. I understand the atmosphere is adversely affected by Covid precautions, but the evening meal iwas very poor & it shouldn`t have been.

The starters were tasty but other than that food was pretty standard. Nothing spectacular considering the reputation of the celtic manor and the price. Christmas pudding was dry and tasteless. Waiter was rushed when serving us, even though we were there quite early so the place hadn't filled yet. We hadn't fully sat down and asked whether we were ready to order. Was also looking around and seemed distracted when talking to us. Not the service I'd expect. We then had to prompt for the christmas discount whilst paying as they'd not applied it.

I thought the seating was not in accordance with 2 meter guidance and whilst your website says tables could only be booked by same household groups that was not the case as many groups were not from the same household. I felt rushed by our waiter which was disappointing.

So love this place. 4the attempt this year as a present for my Daughter. Everything great especially as things are so different. Just rather disappointed by menu .not always to everyone's taste. Was just expecting a plate of food by description ended up with food all in a tomato based sauce very overpowering. 1 dessert I like which was cheese and crackers my favourite but £12 . All in all can t wait to teturn

We have a lovely welcome at The Olive Tree, the waiting staff were friendly and we didn’t have a long wait for our starter or our main. Food was outstanding!! Unfortunately was at the time when alcohol wasn’t allowed. We still enjoyed ourselves. We also had breakfast and to be honest it was much nicer to have fruit in little pots , and hot breakfast was delicious too. I think you have done everything possible to protect people from Covid-19. We certainly felt very safe. Well done .

I received good service, the servers were very helpful. I ordered the Cajun Creole and mint glazed chicken. It didn’t take long to come. The chicken was beautiful and well presented.

Lovely restaurant and the food was great. We had our meals included in our room cost, however if we were paying separately it would have been pretty costly. None the less, it was a great treat and we will certainly be returning.

Over 50 times I have visited the Celtic manor and wow the breakfast I had recently was the best, the bacon was nicely crisped on the edges. Everything was clean and up to the government standards due to the pandemic. All I’ve told my parents is I can’t wait to go back just for the breakfast...maybe you have a new chef I’m unsure but it was a splendid morning and a great start to the day. Thank you
