Lovely garden to relax in. Staff are lovely and dogs are welcome. Good car park and menu. Coffee and soft drinks available, a place you can take children. Although it is a pub it is a trouble free place with no rowdiness.

We've used this place for a few Girly catch ups. Always good service, fair value & good food. The choice on the menu is good for a wide range of tastes, Vegetarian choices are tasty.

The Olive Branch is a brewery owned pub, but that description does not do it justice. Over a million pounds was spent on it's refurbishment a few years ago and it is now more a restaurant with a bar than a pub, sure the menu...More

A perfect place to sit in the sun on an evening after a busy day at work. Love that they have Moretti on tap. Wonderful people who work there, always so polite and cheerful. Great food , great beer, great rooms . Perfect
