The Olive Branch Review
This is a short and sweet review and since the food was so good I thought it warranted a mention in the blog.
I met up with some friends recently at The Olive Branch on Broughton Street. We’ve eaten here on a number of occasions and the foods always been great apart from the last time we visited. Not one to be out off by one bad experience we met here again and weren’t disappointed.
The Olive Branch frequently changes their menu to reflect what produce is in season and what’s available locally whilst putting a Mediterranean twist on it.
I opted for the Braised beef and Guinness stew, spring onion and cheddar mash. This was fantastic. Everything from the melt in your mouth beef to the cheesy mash was seasoned perfectly. You could definitely taste the Guinness in the stew.
My dining partners ordered Roast rump of lamb, saffron potatoes, asparagus and roast garlic jus and Grilled cod fillet, chorizo and cannellini bean stew, salsa verde. Both of which I was told were delicious.
Overall it was a lovely evening. It was good to see The Olive Branch back to its best. The staff were very attentive and friendly without interrupting every 5 minutes.
The Olive Branch also offers brunch and lunch so it has something for everyone. Next time we hope to visit for brunch!!
