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 the arrives, the garden furniture is out, the lawn is being mowed, there are some refreshing hoppy spring beers at the bar, homemade lemonade and elderflower & cucumber gin. 

While Sean starts to compile the 'Spring Gourmet'  menus, a great deal of lovely local produce is arriving at the kitchen door; Lamb, Duck, and Veal from local farms and estates. Wild garlic from the fields, salads, herbs, radishes from our greenhouse and there is some wonderful sea and shellfish arriving at the kitchen door from Norfolk, devon and Cornwall.

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.
