Stopped by for a snack yesterday, my partner had a baguette and I had tzatziki. The cafe is beautiful, very pretty and the food was tasty, reasonably priced and generally very nice. I’d live to go back for an evening meal.

Another excellent visit to the Olive Branch, and yes the lovely little Welsh waitress that I mentioned in a previous review was still there to the delight of myself and my partner. More great food and exceptional service from Sarah.
