Although the menu appears somewhat limited, there are choices to suit most options with meat, fish and vegetarian options.However if all the dishes are as perfect as the beef pie you will not be disappointed.

Nice atmosphere, friendly service, food on the whole tasty and well presented. Unfortunately my lamb was way too salty, to the point where I could not finish it, and my partner's pork loin was dry as a bone and needed some sort of sauce with...More

I would say this is one of the best restaurants we have eaten from the choices, presentation and taste of all the food was excellent and I applaud the chef.

Excellent. This is not a comment I would usually make but well deserved in this case as part of a DB&B deal

The Olive Tree may be in Chester, nestled in the sumptuous womb of the Green Bough Hotel, a luxury Victorian townhouse hotel, but for all the world it can feel like you've been transported to Tuscany. Rich Italian wallpaper and beautiful Italianate oil paintings grace the walls. Happily, you can take your time absorbing the space - a table is yours once seated. Savoy-trained chef/patron Philip Martin brings together an eclectic mix of aromas and flavours in an extensive, weekly-changing menu of innovative dishes epitomised by assiette of seafood - a delightful offering of red mullet, brill and king scallops; and Mediterranean vegetables with goats' cheese and parmesan crust. On cold evenings, it's nice to sit nibbling canap��s by the smouldering 17th century lounge fireplace. Attentive service.
