Visited with friends, lovely small restaurant, good space between tables and very nice soft lighting. Seasonal menu, good choice but not overwhelming. Turkey was a bit tough. Cheesecake was delicious. Would recommend. Not suitable for small children.

We came here for my Grandmas 80th Birthday Meal and all I can say is Fantastic. The table was already set up for 15 people and there was already bottle of wines on the table for us. The food was brought out quickly and all together so we didn't have to wait. We all had 3 courses each which was... More

Great food, good service & hospitality, good choices on menu and a nice selection of quality wines. Reasonably priced for the quality of the food. Recommended.

Went here with a group of friends for Sunday lunch. Nice welcome from the lady on reception. The food was fine but sparse. This was the first time we have been out for sunday lunch when we all came away still feeling hungary. The service was poor, 3 times we had to ask for basic things. I had the cheese... More

Came here with elderly parents and had a very enjoyable meal. Good choice of different types of food (meat/fish/ vegetarian) and everything was tasty. We had sea bass, lamb, chicken and duck and all was very nicely done. Three of us had the crime brûlée which was excellent. We went early and preferred the whiter atmosphere compared with the very...

Enjoyed another evening at olivers, no complaints ever! We enjoyed some elderflower bellini and g&t's to start followed by beautiful starters of goats cheese soufflé, black pudding and apple and a chicken paté. This was washed down with several bottles of incienso Malbec and followed by beautifully cooked lamb rump and pork fillet. Cannot ever knock the standard of food,... More

One of our favourite restaurants - formal enough for special occasions but which regularly has special offers which offer exceptional value. Our most recent visit was an offer for dining before 7-30pm. The menu was understandably limited to about 6 main courses and 5 desserts but included meat, fish, and vegetarian options. Food was as good as the full a... More

Booking is a must as this place is very small with a small bar. Food is nicely presented but most of the mains have some sort of fruity sauce which does not suit everyone. Not cheap to eat here.

Thanks for your visit Margaretpat, yes we do advise to book as we are a small restaurant as you say. None of our mains have a fruit sauce. The confit duck does have a damson compôte. You are right however, we certainly don't do cheap food, just exceptional value menus with ingredients sourced from quality local suppliers . Express Lunch:... More
