The Olive Tree
We went on New Year Eve when they had a seven course tasting menu. The food was beautifully prepared and presented, the portions as expected for a tasting menu.
The staff worked very hard and all with a smile. We like the Olive Tree for lunch and evenings, and would strongly recommend. Also excellent value, considering it was New Year.
The food was amazing and the staff are very friendly. I will recommend this place and also visit again.
Lovely food, great quality
Great food and great service. A bit noisy, though. I would recommend the Olive Tree Tony friends
Good range of options, from (very good) fish and chips to well-cooked duo of duck. Will return.
Took nearly an hour for our food and had to return one due to being overcooked, otherwise good. Was a busy time of year so expected a bit of a delay. Had better experiences there before so would still go back.
They cancelled due to staff shortage left message on voicemail we due to bad reception in our area did not pick up until too late so did not have time to book elsewhere
I understand that the staff were ill but we have not heard from them since to check that we even received message. Would of been nice
Best roast beef lunch around! Love the arrangement of serving veg separately and extra helping if needed. Their cauliflower cheese is a meal in itself!
Fantastic food. Great service. However room extremely noisy, due, probably, to hard flooring
There is not a large choice of main dishes, but neither of my first choice or second were available.
We had a lovely evening for our works Christmas do!
Staff attentive & friendly. Atmosphere lovely. Food delicious. What more could you want?
New waitress, but quite a few mistakes on our order
Food was very average and service was quite slow. There weren't many options for those with a dairy intolerance.
Lovely food........posh nosh for less than posh prices.
Great food and first class service. We were lucky enough to be sat next to the large fire which was brilliant on a cold day. We will certainly be going back.
We have dined here 2 or 3 times before. Always feel very welcome. Staff friendly and helpful. Menu fairly varied. Food well cooked and presented. Warm atmosphere.
My favourite pub. The food is really, really good!
Sunday roast was outstanding! Lovely venue & staff were very pleasant.
Our regular pub. Great service Waiters always attentive and friendly. Food very good.
Good gastro pub food, pleasant dining area but only two other customers so a bit of a lack of atmosphere made up for by excellent service from the two waitresses.
Very relaxing atmosphere. Great staff (Jack was very attentive and helpful)
Lovey decor and open fire.
Nice menu and good food. 👌🏻
Lovely atmosphere and great food, we will be returning
First time going to the olive Tree lovely staff to welcome you at the bar.
Food was lovely reasonable prices. Roast lunch are good size comes with veg on a plate.
Would recommend to everyone.
The staff are so lovely and helpful.
Very enjoyable food , although some menu items not availble. Service was pleasant but overall ambience was a little disapponting. We like quiet, but it was so empty that it felt a little cold and uncomfortable.
Brought friends from abroad who never had a British roast and they really enjoyed the food. Great value too.
Very busy Sunday lunchtime which made for a lively, friendly atmosphere. Impressive range of food on offer that included traditional Sunday roasts but not exclusively. We did wait quite a while for our food but that was understandable as it was so busy. We were informed when the order before ours was being served. Good-sized helpings were accompanied by freshly-cooked seasonal vegetables. Service was very attentive throughout from smiley and obliging staff.
Overall a good experience but rather a cramped table for four people
It was very relaxed and pleasant. Food was freshly made and delicious. Highly recommend it for atmosphere and service.
Once again great service, amazing food, cannot wait to return!!
There was a good atmosphere in the restaurant, the food was well presented, hot and the service was really good. The staff were attentive and made sure we had everything we needed.
I am normally a huge fan of the Olive Tree and have been there on many occasions. I am really hoping that the experience on Sunday was a one off, rather than It being the norm moving forward. The service was awful, which the waitress acknowledged but did nothing about. We had to wait ages and push for drinks, they couldn't find any spoons to allow us to serve the vegetables with the roast, then we sat and looked at dirty plates for quite a while. Oh and they forgot a dessert and when we told them there wasn't even an apology. The food generally ok, but definitely not as good as usual, which was a real shame as it was a treat for my parents. I think we'll give it another go at some point, but it won't be our go to pub anymore if the standards don't improve next time.
Nice local pub. Friendly staff and good fish and chips.
The Olive Tree is a comfortable venue for a nice Sunday lunch - not too busy when we arrived and picturesque with a pleasant courtyard garden for outdoor dining.
Food was acceptable-to-good however there was a bit of a lack of "the trimmings" for our roasts as they'd been busy and run out of portions. Not great planning - especially as I suspect the Yorkshires are frozen since, if they are genuinely homemade, how can you run out? That was a pretty poor aspect.
Secondary to that - it took an absolute age to clear the table, in fact they didn't and I simply piled up the empty crockery and cutlery and placed them on an adjacent vacated table. Not a great service from that point of view, but the staff were otherwise generally friendly and polite.
Arriving a wee bit weary from a local country walk, the bar staff were welcoming despite being under obvious pressure from a 'fine day', Sunday lunch crowd.
Had to wait 30 mins because of the crowd, but a cool drink passed that time and ('Bliss !') the music wasn't intrusive. (What disease afflicts restaurants these days to have to pound your ears into your dinner ?).
Sunday lunch very good and plentiful (and made pudding, unfortunately, excessive).
All good. Thanks, 'Olive Tree'.
Wonderful evening loved Jak attentive friendly and cheerful a delight! Good food also 😀
The staff were very good at checking as one of our party had certain food intolerance Unfortunately the service was really slow on this occasion and although lovely food, the delay meant our main course was cold! There was also a long delay in serving desserts and the coffee came 15 mins before. We had to ask several times for our food. Hence the poor review!
Ridiculous amount of time we had to wait for our main courses with no apologies whatsoever. If it hadn't been the fact it was my son's birthday, we would have left.
Always good, always dependable, food first class and definitely my most favourite watering hole! "Matron" looks after us superbly and all the staff seem friendly and efficient.
