“Excellent”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

Tried this restaurant in the High Street on Saturday night at 7 o clock. Set in an impressive town house with bars, garden and dining areas. An feel of a club with chandeliers and mirrors. Getting busy as we left but we went for the meal. We had 3 courses well cooked and presented by attentive staff who were keen to ensure we enjoyed our meal. With a bottle of Sauvignon our bill came to £80 and they honoured the Telegraph loyalty card which we used to find to begin with. Thank you

“Lovely Sunday roast!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

Came here with my family for a Sunday roast and it was absolutely gorgeous. Ordered roast beef but it was a bit rare for me so swapped with another family member for a different meat luckily. Plenty of veg and potatoes etc to accompany meal. Dessert was amazing can't remember what it was called but it was some kind of spongy wet brown and white chocolate cake square that I have put up a picture of. It came with cream and the two together worked perfectly. Meal was reasonably priced and the service was excellent. The owner/manager was very attentive as were the other staff, and he made an effort to make conversation and have a laugh with us and other dinner guests. Would highly recommend for family meals and occasions etc. It's reasonably priced for the quality of the food but wouldn't recommend if you are on a budget. Lovely place to eat with nice atmosphere and nice building and decor.

“Our Wedding Reception”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We recently had our wedding reception at Olivers and the evening was a huge success. Yeray and his team were superb ..we could not have asked for anything more. The service was great, the food was amazing .. you had 20 very hungry diners by the time we got to the restaurant and the food came out quickly and everyone has told us how wonderful their meal was. Jo, Yeray, Jamie and the rest of the team made the room look amazing and very personal to the both of us. Jo ... you made my wedding cake look fantastic with your artistic touch with the flowers and I couldn't have asked for anything more. Chris and I cannot thank you all enough for the way the whole evening went. Please can you give a big thank you too to your Chef because both ourselves and our guests have all said how wonderful the food was and such an amazing choice to be given on the menu. This was our first experience of Olivers but it will most certainly not be the last. We will be back!! Anyone reading this review and thinking of booking for an event, please do not hesitate ... nothing is too much trouble for these guys and they will make your event so memorable and you will not be disappointed. Thank you all so much .. love Chris & Julie (14.06.14)

“Ideal venue for a family party or large group”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

We have just had our mum's 70th birthday lunch at Olivers. There were 11 of us, with 3 young children. The staff were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble, the service was attentive, but not over bearing, the food was amazing. A perfect venue for a family or large group to enjoy an excellent meal in lovely surroundings.

“Bouncers at Oliver's”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

Myself and a couple of friends were at Oliver's on Friday evening 11 July 2014. There was a big altercation involving a a couple of females that should not have been out in public in the state of alcoholic haze they were in. I would just like to commend the bouncers on their handling of the situation. They quickly and efficiently removed the offending women and the 2 guys from the premises, and called the authorities to handle the situation. Well done !!!!
