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. The Olive Tree also offers an early evening children’s buffet at 6pm every Saturday evening and daily during school holidays.
Pleasant evening with good quality food and excellent service. Due to Covid restrictions, dining was outside which was fine as we had a 6pm booking. Good choice of wines to accompany food and price was fine c£100 for 3 courses and bottle of wine for 2. Staff were very professional and conscious of Covid restrictions when approaching table.
Enjoyable dining experience
Lovely food and fantastic service. The only comments are that the music kept going off so sometimes the atmosphere dropped and a couple more outside heaters would have been great although the blankets were a nice touch :)
Pandemic restrictions prevented indoor dining which from previous visits has been excellent, however staff tried very hard to maintain service standards in a marquee. Food quality and presentation was excellent, I had sea bream which was cooked to perfection.
Service was terrible, 3 tables that arrived after us were served first and we had booked a table. Pizza was not cooked, not once were we asked if everything was ok. Waited 20 minutes for drinks.
The food and service was fantastic!
Not as special an experience as I would have hoped. Food is sub par with what you could have at other chain restaurants. Service was not great, also there were a number of issues whilst using the app as you are unable to order additional items if there is an “open” order. Therefore having to call the server every time we wished to order something which completely defeats the point of the app which we were told to use when we arrived. Overall the service wasn’t as slick as I would have expected from the Celtic Manor and the technical problems should be reviewed. We are local and only visited for lunch and drinks after lockdown but had we been staying from further afield I would have been very disappointed with the experience.
Food looked and tasted like it had been cooked the day before, drinks took sometimes up to an hour to come everytime we ordered. Ask the restaurant manager on 3 occasions to get us blankets as we were so cold, said he would get them and never bothered to come back. A friend of ours who also came with us was sick all night and was on the toilet constantly after having food. Won’t be visiting ever again.
Superb food and excellent staff
Sunday 2nd May was too cold and windy to be eating outside. Only table made available was next to an open section of wall. My wife enjoyed her food, though.It must be very difficult for the hotel to provide a full service, I do sympathise. The bedroom was really good.
Loved our stay.
I respect that due to restriction there was a need to order via the qr code. This was not easy initially and you could easily order the wrong item. Staff were helpful in recapping what we ordered.
The service was particularly slow
Service was terrible. I understand during these times we must use the app but staff weren’t closing our orders off in a timely manner which meant we couldn’t place another One when we needed to. We had to keep asking staff to close it off. Sometimes this took 2-3 asks. We asked perhaps 4 staff members about using our membership card to receive our 15% off and no one could give us an answer. I also paid a £40 which no one knew how to take off our bill because of the payment system through the app which asked us to pay for individual rounds. Considering the amount of money we spent and being the Celtic manor, our expectations were definitely not met. Pizzas and drinks were good. Ordered a Caesar salad and it was drowned in Caesar sauce - sent it back and did not get the money back for it. Again, no one could give us an answer to how this is done. Need to speak to a manager in regards to £40 deposit and reviving 15% back from our overall bill due to us being members. All in all very disappointing.
The staff were very welcoming and friendly, service was swift and efficient. Given the fact we had to dine outside there was heating and i was given a blanket if i was cold. The food was also delicious. I will definitely be coming back.
Good set up and service excellent. The ordering was a bit of a pain as you can only order once and have to pay
Great food and service excellent as usual , unfortunately because of the covid situation at the moment we had to sit outside which wasn’t ideal purely due to the weather! It was cold and windy , and even with the heaters and marquee it wasn’t somewhere you could sit for long, had it been hot and sunny it would have been perfect.
It was very cold and we would have like the opportunity to move but even though we said it was cold we weren’t offered another seat even though it wasn’t busy. We also waited 1/2 hr to order dessert but no one came and we got fed of being cold so left.
A bit chilly in the day but nothing you can do with covid protocol
Lovely outdoor dining atmosphere. Safe and made us feel like we were on holiday
More heaters would have improved the outdoor Terrace dining experience in the Marquee.
The heaters were useless, could do with more and lower so that you actually feel the benefit. The service was very slow!
The setup in the circumstances was very good. However two of the coffee's were luke warm and one of the pulled pork burgers was as well. I fully understand its tough at the moment and it wouldn't stop me going back but just wanted to share some general feedback.
