My fiancé booked this restaurant for my birthday and what a treat. You are impressed to exquisite food. We had pigeon - which I truly truly recommend it! Inbetween you have complimentary treats from the chef which they tingle your taste buds. Wine- we had red Rioja - it was smooth, silky, very drinkable and you don't have a headache... More

I came here with a large bunch of rowdy hens, the staff were extremely accommodating and good natured considering we were probably not their usual clientele and the service was excellent. We had a set menu to chose from and it was definitely the best pre - ordered meal I've ever had. I had a delicious lamb main course that... More

How this restuarant is still without a Michelin star is beyond me.. Chef Chris Cleghorn delicately balances flavours to create the most equisitie meals presented by a most attentive restuarant team.. The wine selection and pairing to each course was faultless. Having enjoyed many meals from Michelin kitchens I am at a loss as to why this intimate jewel in... More

Dear Sir/Madam, We took our older family - daughter, husband, son (12) and daughter (8) to the Olive Tree on Saturday and they thought it was delicious. Everything was eaten, although youngest did not finish the squid toast. We had a whole range of dishes and all were declared to be "yummy". We think that it is the best restaurant... More

After reading all the review , I expected an very enjoyable evening. But it turned out that it did not meet my expectation. The staffs are arrogant, They mixed up your order. The food tasted artificial. There was very limited choice of food. The price was a bit over compared to the quality of food and service.

Definitely recommend for a romantic dinner/ catch-up with friends/ special family meal. Staff where professional and friendly. The food was delicious and we didn't feel rushed- which is sometimes the case with restaurants that do tasting menus.

Wife and I booked last minute and managed to get a table. The building itself is small and the atmosphere is lovely. We were met by a smiling waitress who served us efficiently and politely. Our table was clean and after deciding to order we waited for the food to arrive. The merlot was a decent bottle but the food... More

I'm a vegetarian that tries to eat vegan where possible - went for sunday lunch with family and we were told could pick any dishes off the tasting menu - there was a vegetarian tasting menu but I could only find one vegan dish on there (out of about 10 dishes). Would have been nice to see at least one... More

Dear nf405, Thank you for your review from your Sunday lunch. Apropos your comments about choices of vegan and vegetarian options, I am sorry that you feel that we did not cater sufficiently to your requirements. However we are not a vegetarian restaurant, we are a fine dining restaurant that offers a vegetarian menu as part of its three tasting... More

With reference to the previous review I think the service they experienced was a blip, as we were asked if we wanted our jackets taken, and were offered bread and also offered more bread later. The atmosphere was very tranquil and the decor tasteful. I had the vegetarian taster menu, which was very good, although there were three courses in... More
