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.
Stayed for 2 nights and used the Olive Tree both nights,sorry to say service was not great,steadily gone down over the years and the food was exactly the same apart from the curry as the night before.Also I used the restaurant for 3 days and you have a dispenser for hand sanitizer which was empty for the whole 3 days,
As always a very enjoyable stay
Extremely courteous staff and excellent service food was delicious and well presented
Eaten 2 nights in a row now virtually the same food both nights,service very slow 1st night took over 20 minutes for our drinks to arrive,my wife asked the waiter and a waitress for some horseradish sauce twice it arrived as she finished her nearly cold dinner,next night we took our own drinks in after b info told tales weren’t ready at 1900 there was no bread for the 1st 30 minutes of the dinner service.we have been coming to CMR for a number of years and am sorry to say it’s not up to the standards of a few years ago.
As always the restaurant offers excellent value for money. Linked with the hotel offer it is an experience my wife and I look forward to.
Amazing food, value and service, will most definitely be returning :)
Great food , could be more selection for vegetarians
Steak was dissapointing, came out rare not medium,had to send it bak. When it came back it was slightly better but sauce had gone watery. .breakfast was disappointing. Had better value for money at cheaper establishments. .luke warm.chips with steak also tasted fatty
Buffets value for money, food was very good
Good food and friendly service
food at dinner was not replenished quickly enough, people were waiting for various items while their food was going cold . [eg. soup, gravy.] otherwise choice of food was excellent. Rooms were really good,lovely beds, nice views looking over the golf course if in balcony room, very clean, with tea & coffee making facilities.Second time of visiting, and will be returning in the new year.
I found that the service was a little slow. Water could have been provided more often. Tea and coffee for breakfast took some time. When it did eventually come they hadn't brought the milk. Me and my partner had finished our breakfast by the time the milk had arrived on the table. It also wasn't busy at the time we went for breakfast so not able to use that as an excuse.
It would have been nice to know upon booking of a spa package that dinner was a buffet and drinks were not included (although at checking in the receptionist said we could drink as much as we like within the package) that was not the case! The buffet food was mediocre and like warm and the staff seemed disinterested. Somewhat ruined the experience of staying at the Celtic manor hotel .
Buffet food needs to be replenished regularly , waiting staff need to clear plates without prompting . Quality of buffet foods needs to be upgraded certainly not a sumptuous selection .
I was going to e mail anyway as I wanted to say that I appreciated my group of 30 guests were looked after well by Bethan and the 2 waitresses who attended to us (I’m sorry I didn’t take their names)...we were sat in the private dining area which was perfect....also Bethan arranged for an area to be reserved in the lounge area which I really appreciated as it meant my party could remain together...thank you. I know that quite a few of my party had not visited the Celtic Manor before and a number of them are keen to return and stay overnight also and one person is considering celebrating her 50th with you in July .
Not the greatest selection of main course dishes on the evening we visited and the beef brisket on the carvery was unbelievably chewy! Staff member who was covering our area of the dining room seemed to be almost wilfully avoiding our table so we sat for probably 20 minutes with plates waiting to be cleared away while she busied herself clearing and cleaning empty tables.
For £35 per person for a 3 course meal, I didn’t feel the food was of a high standard. Curry was bland and watery and the lamb that was served was chewy and full of fat. The atmosphere is brilliant and the hotel itself.
We were celebrating a 50th birthday, but sadly wish we’d chosen a different restaurant. No reference was made to the birthday at all,which was disappointing. The food choice was OK, but a bit mixed up (British, Chinese, Indian, Greek), and the vegetable tray (peas, broccoli & carrots) was empty. The chicken tikka masala was stone cold. The wine prices were over the top in our opinion. We would not look to return here to celebrate a special birthday in future.
I was extremely disappointed the food was lukewarm, tasteless and as a vegetarian I could not believe the lack of imagination in available food. I ended up eating cold pizza as I could not eat anything else as the options were dry and tasteless. The wine was the only decent thing on our table.
Sorry but it was a dreadful experience and in no way did it compare with the hotel in any way. I relayed this to reception staff and they handled very fairly. Never again!
Excellent food and service.
More vegetables with the main course choice would have been better, overall a nice dining experience.
We had a lovely evening at the olive tree my partner is terrible with food but he loved it only one thing I noticed which was the rice at the curry bar it was rock solid which was I bit disappointing but the rest was great
