Lunch at The Olive Tree last Thursday was a last minute decision. What a great choice it was to go there. From the moment we walked in, we were looked after extremely well by the very pleasant waitress. The menu choices were excellent, the only difficulty was making a choice from so many tempting options. The food itself was presented... More

I’d just wanted to say thank you to the Olive Tree staff for catering for me so well on a visit there last Saturday. It can be a nightmare going out to eat at times with food intolerances however the ladies who served me went out of their way to make sure I didn’t have anything I shouldn’t and offered... More

Had a lovely meal here. Both of us had Steak from the extra menu at an addition cost to the set menu. The steaks were cooked exactly as ordered and the sides were also of high quality if a little small in the size of the portion. The desserts were a little disappointing but adequate. The staff were very attentive... More

A decent greeting by lovely staff members preceded a lunch that was perfect in every respect. I took my Father & wife ( mid 50's to 90 years old today). We all had starters, followed by 3 different mains but could not manage any of the tempting deserts. The quality of food, presentation, taste & service was exceptional and I... More

The title of this review says it all. We hadn't been for three or four years for an evening meal and, frankly, we won't be going again. The standard of cuisine has dropped and can't be compared to how it used to be. My partner's pork was mostly gristle, my colleague's liver was chewy, his wife's and my meal were... More

We were recommended by a local to eat here. You should book as it is quite small and was certainly full on the Friday night we visited. They offer a 2 or 3 course set price menu with a wide range of choices on each course. We settled on a mains and a dessert - and we were glad we... More

Booking is a must as it's quite small and gets busy. It closes quite early too, about 9pm I think but it's definitely worth a visit! Food was beautiful, we had a little problem with one of the dishes but the staff handled it so well. Friendly atmosphere and good range of vegetarian dishes. Well worth the visit!!
