“Great food, price and experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We asked the lady in the whole food shop where to go to eat in Hebden and she said to go to the olive branch. We were not disappointed, had some dishes to share for starters which were delish and then the swordfish which was fresh and tasty. The baklava was great too, shared amongst three was perfect as the waiter brought us an extra piece. Ten out of ten. Only minor thing was I asked for a 125ml wine as was driving and a 175ml came. All in all a great choice. Will be back.

“Five Stars”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

I don't give 5 stars very often but - along with a lot of other people it seems - I feel they deserve it.
We were wandering around Hebden Bridge at around 10:20 on a Wednesday evening and asked two smokers standing outside a pub where we could eat.
Always ask the locals! "Try the Olive Branch if you like Turkish" they agreed.
So it was nearly half past by the time we fetched up outside the restaurant but they welcomed up in and had a quick check with the kitchen to see that all was going to be okay to carry on serving.
Yes, okay, the chef was still on a roll.
We both had lovely food for a more than fair price served by a young lady who made us feel welcome. There is little more you could ask for a mid-week meal.
If you're in the area give them a try

“Turkish delight!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

We dined here during a stay in Hebden Bridge, as recommended by Josephine of Croft Mill. Fab food, great portion sizes, lovely ambiance. We loved the traditional music they had playing in the background. Well worth a visit!

“Once again - Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

Just a short review -- booked a table a few days before for a sat night, arrived 20 mins early and table was already ready (very small place so always try to book in advance.)

Once again great mixed starter to share, and great mains.

Great staff, great service, great food.

Thanks

“Always a great meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2014

We have been many times as it is a lovely friendly and busy atmosphere, the food always tastes fresh and healthy, and good value too, especially at lunch time.

You won't be disappointed, this little restaurant deserves all the success it gets.
