I'll start off with the setting, a rural location, picturesque with a feel of warmth. A country barn house converted to an attractive restaurant, by open lit fire place a cosy ambiance. The dining was over reached a quirky attempt to mix a fine dining experience with a pub food theme. As a star awarded eatery I don't see much... More

Took the wife for her birthday meal. This was our first visit and we were really impressed. Service was top notch. Wine list was very extensive. The food just melted in your mouth and was so flavoursome. I can't recommend it enough. This will now become a regular haunt in future.

We booked the barn for a birthday celebration. Over the years The Olive Branch has become a special place for us. We enjoy the variety of menus, the flavour combinations and the ingenuity of dishes that the kitchen produces. Private dining in other establishments can sometimes be a let down, serving twenty on a busy Saturday night is challenging. However,... More

Booked to dine with a close friend for a special birthday. Flowers I'd ordered were magnificent. Food was simply superb, including a complimentary starter of fresh pea soup. My friend's dessert arrived with 'happy birthday' piped round the plate- a nice touch Staff friendly and knowledgeable yet polite, food and service first class.

My husband surprised me on my birthday with a fabulous trip to The Olive Branch and once again the experience was first class. We had a lovely table for two (my husband had been into the restaurant to choose the table he liked) and it was with other twos which made the ambiance really lovely for us. The food is... More

Had a lovely stop over in Beechwood House and a wonderful dinner at the Olive Branch. We selected from the five course gourmet tasting menu, with a few substitutions from the a la carte. We started with a lovely pea veloutte, followed by a starter of ham terrine. We were also laden with delicious baked bread, and offered seconds. Good... More
