Used to use this place years ago and have not visited for a while as it went downhill. New owners and the place is great again! Lunch was lovely, soup and a sandwich. Soup was homemade vegetable and pearl barley and sandwich was cheese and ham. All served lovely and hot and well presented with a beautiful side salad! Great service too. Would highly recommend!!!

It’s not the first time I’ve been there. It’s a very nice and worm place. The food is amazing; they change the many quite often and always high quality.

Staff were amazing, really friendly and accommodating. Menu is great, lots of options for people with allergies. Building has a nice county pub vibe but modern.

Having had many disappointing meals that were reheated and ruined at gastro pubs, our experience at The Olive Tree was superb! Freshly prepared very tasty food very well presented.
The staff were very friendly and efficient. We enjoyed our meal very much.

Always a lovely atmosphere here. Staff are fab and go above and beyond. Sunday roasts are always delicious. Could do with being a little warmer at times, being seated by the windows gets a bit chilly but apart from that I would highly recommend!

The staff were lovely and very helpful but a few things on both the main menu and on the specials board were unavailable or they only had one left. It is quite a short menu so didn’t leave a huge choice. However, the food we did have was good.

Service was a little slow due to a busy Sunday lunch - more than made up for with excellent food. Will be back soon.

Great food and great beer that is well looked after. Staff were lovely and the service was very good. You do pay a bit more at The Olive Tree but I certainly don’t begrudge that after such a lovely visit.

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.

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.

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

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.

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 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.
