After seeing the overall score on trip advisor we were expecting a good evening, with quality food. What we got was ok food and a lot of waiting. It took 30 minutes before our order was taken, 30 minutes before my husbands starter was served, then another 30 mins before our mains were brought out. We declined dessert as we... More

Nice to see such improvements. Homemade bread on arrival which was lovely. The little touches mean a lot. Homemade treacle tart with malted milk ice cream was just amazing, so much better than last time when eton mess was on offer in winter. Seasonal products, cooked correctly and served with finesse- expect great things. Give people a chance and I... More

On arrival we were given menus that bore no relation to the Sunday Lunch menu we had looked at on line the day before. In particular, a number of items were not there and the various inclusive prices for starter,main course and dessert were not present. On complaining I was told "There is a new chef and he has changed... More

We have a holiday home at Norfolk Park and we are so pleased that the Olive Tree restaurant continues to deliver great food and efficient and friendly service. We look forward to our next Sunday lunch there after Christmas. Well done, keep it up and a merry Christmas to all!

My partner and I were staying in the Dream Lodge Norfolk Park in a really modern spacious lodge with all the mod cons. We had been informed there was a restaurant on-site but were not expecting too much....but what a lovely surprise. The food was very good indeed and the setting extremely modern and contemporary. We were fortunate that when... More

We live near North Walsham and eat out regularly in the area where there are a lot of very good pubs doing food. We decided to celebrate a birthday at The Olive Tree with some of the family. It was our third visit and we had yet another wonderful relaxing evening. The food is delicious and beautifully and imaginatively presented.... More

Set in delightful North Norfolk countryside, our stylish award winning restaurant features a fashionable modern interior complete with a sumptuous lounge and spectacular bar. A fantastic choice for any occasion whether it's a breakfast to kick start the day or a quick coffee, a light lunch or an a la carte lunch or dinner, through to a birthday celebration or wedding celebration. Good food has always been a vital ingredient of The Olive Tree's delivery and an important connection with its rural location. The restaurant offers a Modern British food style using only the best local, fresh ingredients - organic wherever possible, including vegetables, salad leaves, and herbs from our own garden. Everything is prepared on-site on a daily basis enabling us to cater for all dietary requirements including coeliac, vegetarians, diabetics, vegans and allergies. Our guiding principle is quite simply to source and prepare the fabulous seasonal produce on our doorstep, providing real food with true flavours. There is also a lovely Mediterranean-style outside terrace with a central picturesque water feature with Koi Carp, box hedges, olive trees and fronds of papyrus grass, which is ideal for al fresco dining and drinks on warm summer evenings. From April to October guests are also welcome to use the outdoor heated swimming pool which lies adjacent to the terrace where they can relax on the comfy sun loungers and chairs.
