The Olive Branch is a lovely old pub complete with open fires, low beams and cosy corners. The garden was an added bonus as we had good weather. Food was excellent as was the service and wine came by the glass, by the 1/2 litre or by the bottle. While there visit the Clipsham Yew Tree Avenue which is just down the road - but warning don't walk there as the footpath runs out at the edge of the village and the narrow roads are hazardous for the pedestrian. The Avenue was a little shaggy when we visited but still had presence.
Our room in Beech House was spacious and had great views over the surrounding countryside. Watch out for the kettle though as, because there are a limited number of plugs, the extension lead hanging down the back of the table meant when I lifted the kettle the base disappeared straight onto the floor.
Breakfast couldn't be faulted, and the Japanese lady serving us was a delight.
On the expensive end of the gastropub spectrum but worth it.
