Four of us went for the special offer March lunch and had an excellent meal due to the quality of the cooking and the service. It’s really nice when the waiting staff know who is eating what and when we questioned an item on the bill had immediate recall of our order and corrected it with apologies. Apart from the dining rooms, the small shop is interesting and if the large room is open you can enjoy a game of bar billiards. Consistency is important for restaurants and the Olive Branch delivers every time for me.

Beautiful cuisine in a lovely, friendly atmosphere and warm welcome. Accommodation at Beech House was delightful too; they thought of everything to make it a lovely stay.

We were lucky enough to secure a table on the day.

We were staying close by and our hosts recommended The Olive Branch to us and we were not disappointed.

It was busy in the main bar and restaurant area and we were directed to ‘the barn’ which was a lovely area with one large group and one smaller group already enjoying their meals.

Our waitress was attentive without being intrusive - she was familiar with the menu though some wine recommendations would have been welcome.

The menu was varied enough to make the choice difficult.

The food was excellent throughout - three courses each (all different) and still couldn’t resist the petit fours!

We will definitely return with friends to explore the menu further!... and eat more if that amazing bread.

The shop is a fabulous addition too - couldn’t resist bringing a bottle away with us.

We visited the Olive Branch for lunch and had the Eat for Less menu. It was more than adequate in portion size, beautifully cooked and presented. We both had lamb and it was so tender it melted in your mouth. The sweets were delicious also. Bonus for us was our dog was accepted too.Would highly recommend.

I envy anyone who lives within 20 minutes drive of the Olive Branch. How wonderful to have such a cosy dining pub with SUCH excellent food on your door step. Not only that, non diners have enough space to be able to enjoy a few drinks without feeling that they are in the way

We booked the amazing lunch for less which comprised a pressed chicken and ham hock terrine followed by slow roast lamb with dauphinoise potatoes for my husband and I had a generous cod fillet on a bed of smoky chorizo and tomato ragu with celery and chick peas.

All of it was outstanding, as were the home made breads. The staff were courteous and friendly and if it wasn't a 50 minute drive we would be beating a path to their door more often.

Could they please open a branch near Market Harborough?
