My fiancee and I have visited this restaurant on a few occasions and found it to be of exceptional food, quality and service. However on this occasion we were disappointed. Booking our regular stay over in New Brighton there was only one place we were going to eat, so we made sure we booked weeks in advance. On arriving we... More

I went with my partner and ordered a veteran Ian breakfast, it was very bland, sausages were Linda McCartney and were dry and tough, only given a tiny ramekin full of beans which meant it was so dry to eat. And it was quite a expensive. Waitress was very friendly though.

Came with a group of friends and thought the food and service were excellent. Staff were friendly and efficient and the food was of a good quality. I had fish and chips with a generous piece of fish coated with a light batter which I liked very much and everyone else enjoyed what they had chosen. The coffee at the... More

I came here Friday evening with my family and was really looking forward to it as I haven't been in a while.... I was not disappointed. The food was quite simply delicious. We were in a four and all of us really enjoyed not only our meals, but the whole experience. I had some lovely prosecco and I was pleased... More

My mother, sister and I visited last Saturday night for dinner, and as usual were welcomed warmly by the wait staff and seated promptly, we were given our menus with a delicious array of specials on for that evening. All three of us ordered from the specials board and were thrilled with our choices. The food was served promptly and... More

After a disappointing visit pre christmas we decided to give the Olive Tree another go. The owner had contacted me after my last review, which I think was a lovely touch, she was concerned, deeply apologetic and genuinely interested in my feedback so I said we would visit again at some point and feedback. I was offered vouchers but I... More

Visited on the recommendation of my wife, who has been here On a few occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, I recommend the sizzling Thai chicken , and the sundae with 3 flavours of ice cream!! My wife and I had a lovely couple of hours , highly recommended

We'd heard good reports of this place. It started well but we waited ages for a menu, asked for water and waited ages again. I ordered haggis pakoras for a starter and they had most definitely been fried in oil used for fish. The batter on the fish was dark,not golden, which indicated to me that the oil was old.... More

The place lacks character and it being all but empty when we were there (early evening admittedly) made it worse. we sat an extraordinary long time for the food given there was no rush on the kitchen and the food didn't seem to have been made there and then but rather reheated. That said it was OK and if it... More

Hi Amanda Thanks for taking the time to review us. We try and create a relaxed friendly atmosphere and not many restaurants out of city centres are busy mid week early evening in January. All food that is possible to cook from fresh is cooked there and then, obviously there are some dishes that are slow roasted that would be... More
