Description: We have created a dining environment with a classic mix of the stylish and the contemporary, within the wonders of one of the City's most historic buildings.Split across three floors, the ground floor and first floor serve as a dining area, whilst the cellar has been transformed into a magnificent cocktail bar area, with the low brick ceilings creating an intimate and relaxing area, perfect for a pre or post dinner drink. Our outdoor courtyard also has seating for up to 40 people, perfect for a bite to eat or a coffee in the sunshine.We aim for this landmark building to once again become synonymous with top class dining in the City of Worcester.

I re-visited this restaurant last week, together with my Mother and a friend. We ordered the paella and were not disappointed. My friend had never had paella before, so was a bit apprehensive. But she was very impressed and will probably be visiting again!
The staff are friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome.

I chose the Olive Branch because of the good reviews and overall the experience was very good. The setting and the food were excellent. There were two of us and we had the midweek deal of a sharing board and carafe of wine for £25. There was plenty of food and it worked out to a medium glass of wine each. It was a sunny day and being able to sit out in the sunshine with the Mediterranean music playing made it feel special. The only reason I gave 4 stars not 5 was because the service was a bit slow. We had to go in to place the order as no one came out, but they did apologise for that. It then took a while to clear the table once we had finished. I would definitely go back again though.

Went with a large group. Had a good selection of meat and veggie tapas dishes and generally very good. However two negatives. The dishes arrived en-masse, would have preferred them to be "drip-fed". Secondly the staff could have been friendlier.

Met 2 old friends in Worcester so spent most time over coffee and a very leisurely lunch. Good food, wine and pleasant staff, in centre of the city.
