The food is excellent, only marred by coffee from a machine rather than a decent expresso. Having found other places for coffee, I'll time future meals at the Olive Tree to coincide with a little trip elsewhere for coffee. But the food and the service...More

The Olive Tree is a very good but quite small Restaurant and I am not sure whether they would accept a booking of 15. I would recommend speaking with them direct as you would need to book well in advance.
