Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Our first visit and it won't be our last! We'd stumbled across Oliver's on a previous day trip to Seaford and finally thought we'd give this hidden gem a go to celebrate my birthday. This is a husband and wife team specialising in what I'd...call modern, British fine cuisine. What can I usefully add here..? All the dishes are freshly homemade, painstakingly presented with attention to detail, and above all, hearty portions with a tasty selection of delicately prepared veg - and (what a welcome change!) spot-on roastie potatoes! The subdued décor is inviting, service is faultless and the wide choice of wines are sensibly priced. Strongly recommend and definitely look forward to returning.More

This independent restaurant is a reminder of how things should be done. The menu is varied and interesting and the food is made with love and it shows. The service was warm, friendly and unobtrusive. Special mention to the parsnip soup and brandy snap baskets...- amazing. Great value for money and the fact it’s always booked well in advance should tell you all you need to know. We will be back!More

Disappointed:( I just moved to seaford and I was so excited to take my my mum for a nice dinner. The starters were amazing however the soup was absolutely tasteless . They were polite and gave us a sorbet . For the main dish we...ordered Seabass and it was very fishy and tasted like it wasn’t fresh . Me and my mum are not picky at all but we just took 3 bites of it as it wasn’t edible . The desert was good tho . Never going back as we just had this fishy aftertaste all eveningMore

Always lovely eating at Ollivers. The food isn’t very adventurous and hasn’t changed much in all the years I’ve known it. It is quite old fashioned but you know what to expect and it’s always cooked well. Expect a whole evening out as there are...lots of small courses. Great value for the quality of the food.More

We were a family party of 9 and were made to feel very welcome by Steve. We were more than impressed with the quality of the food and presentation was first class. A short but well chosen wine list produced some enjoyable bottles to go...with the food. An excellent evening out.More

After spending a very hot day on the spectacular Seaford Head golf course, we were ready for a nice dinner. Despite the fact that we hadn't booked, Steve found us a very nice table and made us feel so welcome. The quality of the food...was beyond our expectations and we loved every minute of our evening at Oliver's. Many many thanks to Juliet for her wonderful dishes and to Steve for keeping us entertained. We will certainly be back the next time that we find ourselves in Seaford. A total delight !!More

First time here on recommendation from reviews. For 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration. Could not fault this restaurant. Booked well in advance and was very happy with result. Excellent well priced menu, locally resourced produce. Good wine list and fast efficient service. The owner is a...good host and adds to the conversation regarding the area around Seaford. Would certainly visit again when in the area.More

We enjoyed a lovely meal whilst on holiday in the area. Very creative and imaginative dishes. The background music was very quiet, which was great for us. The proprietor was very welcoming, entertaining and attentive. The restaurant is only a minute walk from Seaford station.
