Our visit and meal were extra disappointing because we chose The Olive Branch for a foodie outing after spotting it in the "Waitrose Good Food Guide" and we all drove 50 odd miles from various points north and south to meet for our New Year...More

Whilst working in Rutland we tried The Olive Tree in Clipsham. It had been recommended before by the owners of the guest house I stay at when on business in the area. We arrived just after 18:00 (service started at 18:30) so it was quiet...More

The food at the Olive Branch is sensational, fresh, creative and absolutely delicious. The team are professional, welcoming and extremely friendly. The venue is lovely and the Christmas decorations and the log fire certainly added a festive glow to our special lunch.
