We visited the Olive Branch for the first time on 13/4/18, the place was really busy and the atmosphere was great, however when the singer came on the volume was very loud and made it almost impossible to have a conversation. The staff were notified but nothing was done unfortunately.

In terms of food, the starters were really good and well presented. The mains again were excellent although not everyone received their mains at the same time which meant that some had finished whilst others were waiting for food. The staff were very apologetic and gave us free wine/desserts to compensate which was a nice thing to do under the circumstances.

Overall we will probably try another branch in future and during the week for a bit more intimacy.

Dear Anthony

Thank you for your review. On the evening you had visited there was a slight delay in the kitchen with your mains orders and we did extend our sincere apologies to your table. We tried our hardest to please your table giving you over £50 of free products including wines and puddings. We are sorry about the volume of our entertainment. We did turn the volume down as soon as you requested.

You clearly enjoyed the ambience and the food so thank you for mentioning this. You mention the mains were excellent. Celebrations are always special to us so thank you for choosing the Olive Branch. We hope to welcome you again soon.

Kind regards
The Olive Branch, Sowerby Bridge.

Staff were really friendly when we arrived, making sure we were comfortable with our table, and the food was absolutely amazing. There was a great offer on of 13.95 for any starter and main, so with non-alcoholic drinks the bill only ended up being £30 even though my partner had steak for mains. Really really good value for such a great meal. Loads of veggie options which all looked really good - I had the mushroom starter which I’d definitely recommend, and then the veg fajitas for mains were so flavoursome and not too spicy (even the jalapeños were just right) - I’ll definitely be back again!

Only margins for improvement were that they were a little on the slow side to clear our empty starter plates, the starters were quite small (felt like they had cheated by taking up lots of space of the plate with salad and dip!) and the fajitas were unnecessarily oily. The amazing friendliness of the staff, comfortable vibe of the restaurant, flavours and variety of veggie options made up for these though and overall I still think they deserve a 5 star review.
