As before, we enjoyed tasty food at reasonable prices with really friendly service. I particularly liked the ice cream selection - the blackcurrant and liquorice flavour is lovely!

After trying to spend time with old colleagues as we were drinking the water staff at 9:10pm informed us that they would be closing at 9:30pm. Poor end to a lovely night with friends.

Visited the Olive Tree Bistro on Sunday night with my girlfriend and was not disappointed in any way. Everything from booking the venue, the warm and friendly greeting on arrival, the fantastic freshly prepared food, the personal service from the staff, the value for money, everything was first class. We ordered the Sunday chicken roast and the homemade scouse and both were cooked perfectly and tasted absolutely delicious. For dessert we chose Bakewell tart and apple crumble and again, both were presented really well and tasted superb, with piping hot custard (as it should be!). The venue is perfect for couples or smallish groups (6-8 perhaps) and offers a very personal and romantic setting. There is also adequate parking very close to the bistro. Having been for the first time on Sunday, I can say with some certainty that we will be visiting it again soon!

We took a friend here for a birthday treat before going to the Floral hall theatre which is just a few minutes walk away. We had the pre-theatre menu which was good value at £15.99 for two courses. Staff were friendly and efficient, food was good and there was a nice relaxed atmosphere. We would definitely go there again.

This is the fourth time I have eaten at the Olive Tree ( usually pre theatre dinner). A fairly extensive menu with good quality food. My friend and I both opted for the mixed berry cheesecake.....in a word .....DIVINE!!

Disappointed is probably our opinion.
The mackerl pate was delicious, but two small pieces of dry bread, no butter and poor garnish let it down drastically.
Pizza was very nice.
Would say that hygiene was not high on the agenda. Plates not really clean.
Service was ok, bit slow.
Liked the music.

Being gluten free it is quite hard to find restaurants that are really amenable to your requirements. The menus tend to lack thought and very few items are in fact GF however The Olive Tree really push the boat out, not just for Coeliac's but all types of foodies. I highly recommend this restaurant and will be going again real soon, thank you for a fantastic meal etc.

I’ve eaten here a few times before, always, as on this occasion, pre-theatre. The food is invariably good & the service pleasant & friendly. My only complaint this time was that my starter, garlic mushroom on ciabatta, was spoiled because the sauce was poured over the ciabatta, rendering the bread into a mush, instead of the crispness it should have. The waiters did not ask if the meals were alright. If I hadn’t been in a rush to leave for the performance (bad timing on my part), I would have commented at the time.
Nevertheless I will come again. It is an ideal venue for anyone going to the Floral Pavilion.

We visited the olive tree with our friends over from Australia. The cuisine in oz is fantastic so we wanted to make sure we had good food. The meals were delicious freshly made and well received. The bistro was busy with a great atmosphere. The view of the surrounding trees outside through the windows with the indoor twinkly lighting made our friends think they were somewhere in France where they had just visited. Excellent staff and experience thanks jayne and staff!

When I booked my table online I mentioned my wife's back condition and that she cannot sit so she would prefer to lie down or stand if possible. They rang me to let me know that they have no benches which was very good to know in advance. Most places never let you know. When we arrived they accommodates us sitting next to the window at the high table so she could stand while we sat on high stools.

We were eating out for my wife and daughters birthday. Both of which are vegetarian and found the choices to be excellent. The food was great, very tasty with amazing chips! You could tell good ingredients had been used. It was also a nice gesture that both my wife and daughter got free a drink for their birthdays.

Very helpful staff who my wife enjoyed chatting to and a nice atmosphere. Will definitely go again!
