Returned here after many years and used to drive some distance to dine here. Menu now is much smaller with too many "poesy" dishes some appearing like a jigsaw puzzle, in parts, on a burnt wooden slab. Its not exactly nouvelle cuisine where they put the meat on top of the gravy but it is no more good solid fayre...

We stayed for one night at The Olive Branch and as a last minute booking were able to take advantage of a very good deal for dinner, bed and breakfast. We arrived later than planned but nothing was too much trouble for the owner. We enjoyed a splendid 3-course meal with food of the very highest standard. There is an...

I really do like The Olive Branch but yesterday's visit didn't tick the boxes again!. Whilst every attempt was made to cater for my boys, one of my boys was left with a bowl of tomato pasta and no filling. My sirloin steak was rare instead of medium and filled my plate with blood which was very off-putting. Yet again...

I hadn't been to the Olive Branch for 20 years but it is just as I remembered - relaxed, warm, informal and friendly, where you could unwind in front of a lovely fire - much needed on an icy January night ! The food is as good as ever and my turbot was utterly delicious - as were the breakfasts....

Stayed here 3 or so years ago and decided to come back to the area. Amazed to find this place was actually cheaper for the weekend than the local premier Inn (our usual cheap stay option) so jumped at the chance to come back. Stayed in Topiary room, same as before, its a Lovely room, with extra bed for 9...

If you are looking for excellent, well presented, flavoursome food, head for the Olive Branch in Marsden. It's easy to find, there's ample parking and you will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome. The room that we had was spacious and clean with a large bathroom. Very generous tea/ coffee making facilities on the landing helped to make...

On arrival we were shown to our room which was Topiary, a nice large room and a nice bathroom with bath and shower, plenty of room all round. Tea and coffee making facilities etc were outside the rooms in the hallway, which was a little odd but didn't bother us, but some may be conscious of nipping out in their...

Friends and I visited the Olive Branch earlier this month. The bar is warming and inviting, with a great selection of beers, wines and spirits. The menu was varied with some mouth watering dishes. Most of the group had the lamb board which was to die for. This is an awesome spot, very relaxed, very friendly hosts. Highly recommended, can't...
