One MICHELIN Star: High quality cooking, worth a stop!
Comfortable restaurant
Proud to be one of Bath’s longest established independent restaurants, the one Michelin Star and 3 AA Rosette Olive Tree provides one of the best experiences of fine dining Bath has to offer. The hotel is a stylish contemporary boutique hotel, but the restaurant is an oasis of calm modernity, with excellent British food served with a great attention to detail in relaxed, informal surroundings.

We had a anniversary dinner here. We opted for the taster menu with wine pairing and it was wonderful. Our waiter was charming and knew his wines very well! The attention to detail was brilliant and had a great experience.

A brilliant culinary experience that we'll remember for a long time. The scallop for us, comfortably, stole the show. The staff were warm, funny and engaging. Good stuff all around :)

Great service, great location, nice atmosphere, food started well and get better by the course. The deserts were (for me) the highlight. Standards were very high in everything - good attention to detail. Highly recommended!

Outstanding service, food really was delicious and the wine pairings really worth doing. A nice relaxing environment which isn't too stuffy. Loved every second of the experience!

Olive tree selling point is the star, but I am not sure if it’s up to the standard. Most of the food was good but not amazing, many were either too salty or too sweet, might be down to personal taste? However, there was one...More

Amazing food and ambience. We had the 6 course taster menu as it was lunchtime and I couldn’t fault it. Would highly recommend and would 100% return.
