Description: 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.

Really was a lovely meal. Stayed over at the Green Bough and had a lovely time. Food and service was exquisite.. Really second to none.
Must say as well that booked meal via third party website. Then rang hotel to book a table and they informed me that if I booked through them instead they could add a meal for £25 extra. That made it taste even better and was much appreciated.
Thanks.

Having eaten here before (3 years ago) I was very disappointed with the quality of food. This place used to be one of the best in Chester - standards have fallen a long way.
No nibbles with your drinks, no appetisers with your meal. The menu was very limited and plain. Suspect most of the dishes were from Brake Bros. At £35 per head I expect better.

We stayed at the Green Bough and ate at the Olive Restaurant for dinner. Unlike most small hotels, we were treated and served as if in a professional restaurant. The service and attention was second to none. The menu was limited but the food was very good and extremely well priced. Like the rest of the hotel the restaurant felt well run. Highly recommended

Visited this restaurant on a weekend break and was very impressed with the standard of service and the delicious food.Everything was cooked to perfection and the staff were really friendly but also made you feel quite special. Really enjoyed the fine dining!

This restaurant is attached to the Green Bough Hotel, the chefs menu was varied and different each night. The food is clearly created in the hotel kitchen as is a mixture of traditional and unusual. Set price for the 3 course meal with a supplement for cheese and coffee.
