The food was nice, really nice. Small potions but that goes with the territory. We ate early, 7pm, so the atmosphere was very flat in fairly formal surroundings although it did pick up later as the place filled up. We were nicely welcomed and generally...More

We enjoyed a fantastic meal in the evening and breakfast the following morning as part of our stay at the hotel. The food was delicious and well worth a visit. The restaurant was not over crowded and the staff were all very helpful and attentive.

our first visit to the Olive Tree was for the Titanic evening. I hate to disagree with the previous glowing reviews, but for me it just wasn't quite what it said on the tin. The food was beautifully cooked, but there was a very long...More

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.
