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.

Perhaps it was because we had a late sitting, but I wasn’t “wowed “ by our waiter. The food was ok. Loved the beef, but no chicken, and the selection of vegetables was poor. Overpriced at almost £30 each. Shame as we love Celtic Manor, but I begrudge paying almost £100 for a “ posh” carvery, a bottle of wine and a compulsory service charge.

Starters were lovely. Plenty of choice. The main meals were incredibly dry and had been sitting on the hot plate for far too long. Was quite unpleasant. Deserts were limited.

First time dining at the Olive Tree and certainly won’t be my last, everything was superb from the food to the atmosphere and the service. Incredible selection of food both at dinner and breakfast the next day, all fresh and hot.

We had booked for 2:30 but were asked if we had finished 3:30 as they were clearing away I had traveled 130 miles to spent the afternoon with a friend for her birthday and was hoping not to be rushed. A little disappointed but the food was amazing.

We have stayed at the Manor House and Resort several times over the years but we felt that this time the service was not as we would have expected. There was a problem with the water we asked for during our evening meal, had to keep asking for this basic requirement several times. Cutlery on the table was not fully represented. Small plates were non existent for bread etc The pancakes were cold and hard when we were having breakfast at 9 am, which isn't late. Noticed also that the drinking glasses by the fruit juices weren't as sparkling as they should have been. Considering the Celtic is listed as 5* on your website these problems need to be addressed.

Evening Buffet offered lots of choice, pleased to see several vegetarian options too. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Service was good. Only one small disappointment was that the cheese board was somewhat depleted - our booking was for 20.45, so I am guessing it's not topped up towards the end of the evening. Breakfast buffet was also very good. Vegetarian sausages are some of the best I've tried - they are cooked on request and take about 10 minutes.

Disappointed as seated in garden room in a cramped position of a row of 4 two seated tables no privacy and difficult to get in and out from your table. Also limited choices and many plates were sparse when we went up.standard not as good as previous visit. Would not use for evening meal again. Although breakfast was excellent.

Very disappointed there was not a vegetarian option , the mains were meat or fish. The dress was poor yes we like relaxed but shorts t shirt and trainers- really?? Baby running round in nappy- come on you can do better than that. Loved the music, the food was good if not the choice. Very friendly and helpful staff.
