“Super value !”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

Many years since we last came here. Based on our excellent experience this weekend, a long overdue return ! 3 courses each, 4 beers and bottle of wine, finished off with coffee, worked out £25 per head (4 people). Beautifully presented and tasty food. Flavoursome sauces gave a real depth to the food. Efficient service and nice ambience made for a very enjoyable meal/evening.

“Good value for money”
Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

I visited the olive tree with a group of friends recently and had a very pleasant evening. The venue has a nice shabby cheque feel and is very clean. Staff were lovely and very accommodating although didn't seem to know the menu particularly well when asked about certain items. I had the goats cheese to start which was very nice and came with a fresh salsa and salad. For main I had the steak which although cooked very well wasn't a very nice cuff meat which did ruin it slightly. The sauce however was to die for and homemade chips even better! Four of us dined and had a bottle of wine and other drinks and it came to £20 a head which was excellent value for money. Really nice setting! I will be visiting again.

“excellent food, nice ambience”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

This is a real treat. The food is excellent and there is plenty of space in the restaurant. The staff are excellent and seem to genuinely care. My partner and I have been there 4 or 5 times over the last 2-3 years. It is one of our favourite restaurants in Lichfield.
