We booked a table for Tuesday lunch today after reading the rave reviews this restaurant has received. Number one problem is the very limited parking available. To make sure of a place on the car park, make a 12am booking. It is clearly ver popular. The staff are very friendly and we received a very warm welcome. This is not... More

Had a lovely lunch with friends at the Olive Branch today. Two of us ate from the fixed price menu (£21.50 for three courses) and two from the normal menu. Our starters and mains were delicious. My pork chop was particularly tasty, but the men in our party were disappointed with the size of their puddings off the main menu... More

We stopped off for lunch en route from London to Newcastle. Got the recommendation from the book 'Near the Motorway' by Hugh Cantlie. Chose it because dogs are allowed (in the bar). Had a really fantastic long lunch. Delicious food - my kids loved their cottage pie. Good service, lovely ambience. All the other diners were so nice!! Made me... More

An excellent location for a quality meal at reasonable price. It is not cheap but considering all ingredients are locally sourced of the highest quality it delivers excellent value for money. Staff are attentive and friendly without being pushy and at no time felt pressured to leave. Ambience is great although the bench seats can get a little uncomfortable.

We've stayed a few times but brought some friends on this occasion because, after 25 years of marriage, frankly, we needed some other company. I was hoping that it would deliver as usual as our friends are beautiful but exacting clients who never shy from letting their opinions be known which, as a true Brit, makes me want to retreat...

Fabulous food once again. They are excellent at catering for coeliacs and often have lovely gluten free bread. The staff are always helpful and friendly. For us it's a 40 minute drive but always worth it. Loved the espresso martini!

We visited on a Monday night as a group of four for my Father-in- law's birthday. The building itself is picturesque with lovely facilities and quirky touches, such as the Wellington boots if you want to visit their growing area over the road!! The staff are very attentive without being overbearing, very knowledgeable and couldn't do enough for us -... More

Returned after a number a years and was disappointed, hoping it was just an off day but we found it very over priced and not the best quality. Shame as I used to visit often.

Taking advantage of 'Lunch for Less', we had an enjoyable birthday experience with a two course meal that was truly excellent - a pheasant starter and then pan fried cod with bits (sorry I am not a great one for detail but it all tasted good!). One of our party had a enjoyable chocolate sweet and we had the petit... More
