Food was lovely. Staff were lovely but beer lukewarm and wine not chilled ( £18 a bottle ). Its basics. Have the beer ice cold and the white wine the same and you're there.

On business and went to the Olive Branch for dinner. Was not let down. Tried the prawns and Greek mixed grill. Loved it. Food was so good with lovely wine list. Really loved it and will call again

Stopped by for a snack yesterday, my partner had a baguette and I had tzatziki. The cafe is beautiful, very pretty and the food was tasty, reasonably priced and generally very nice. I’d live to go back for an evening meal.
