Lived up to the general reviews. Not visited for some years and has moved up market (although the decor is more cafe than restaurant). Well cooked, presented and served. Only real criticism was the thump of unwelcome music - not overbearing but irritating.

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.
