I was part of a group of friends who booked Sunday Lunch. The Olive Branch was reasonably busy on a very hot Summer's day and several people sat outside to enjoy the food/drinks in a beautiful small garden. We were in the main restaurant which...More

We have been to this restaurant a few times before and have gradually seen it change for the worse, which has left us feeling disappointed and prompted me to write this review. The welcome as we entered the building was not friendly, the staff member...More

Staff looked stressed, dashing round, not finding time to be welcoming. As the kitchen door opened, I noticed large tinned tomatoes and other jars being opened. We intended to buy a meal at 37.50 pounds a head, along with pre-dinner drinks and wine (at approx...More
