This is by far the best venue in Rochester. We were booked in to do the cocktail course and have a meal afterwards. The service was amazing from the time we stepped in until the time we left. Staff were friendly and attentive. Nothing too much trouble and it was clear they were out to make the whole Olivers experience... More

Bought tickets to see the New Year in Oliver's I have to admit I was a bit skeptical at first purely because of my first experience in Oliver's.

We went to Olivers for our works Christmas party. We were given a private area and received really excellent service.They were really well organised with food, drinks and timings, and although they needed to turn the table around, we were never rushed. Food quality was excellent across all courses. We will definitely book again for next year.

I rarely go to Oliver's but when I do it's such a great atmosphere the DJ is always playing such good tunes, the staff behind the bar are always lovely, specially Jade who makes the best cocktails! Would 100% reccomend visiting.
