The Good Pub Guide 2014 - Pub of the Year
Our entry in the 2014 Guide says: “The civilised Olive Branch prompts readers to superlatives: ‘service as good as it gets’; ‘sublime food’; ‘how have they managed to maintain such consistently high standards?’; ‘the ultimate pub experience’. It’s a first class all-rounder.”
A huge thanks to all of you, our customers, for supporting us and helping to make the award a reality. A heartfelt thanks, too, to The Olive Branch’s great team…
Meanwhile.... at this time of year as autumn turns to winter, fires are lit, last years crop of sloes are steeped and ready, and there is some wonderful local game arriving at the kitchen door.
While Sean starts to compile the Autumn and Christmas menus, a great deal of lovely local produce is arriving at the kitchen door; Partridge, Venison and Pheasant from local woods and estates as well as Grouse from Yorkshire. Jerusalem artichokes from the village, courgettes, marrows, pumpkins and our own grapes to make chutneys for our Christmas Shop. Apples, quince and berry from local orchards and hedgerows to make our desserts and flavoured spirits.
With Pedro continuing to find some great new wines to put on the list and Nick changing the ales and speciality lagers on the bar, we hope you will discover something new and exciting everytime you visit us.
We hope to see you soon.
