Important Info


PLEASE NOTE - Table times are for 2 hours, and are from TIME OF BOOKING - We reserve the right to re-allocate tables after 15 minutes no show if we have not received any prior communication.  Please be aware that late arrivals have an impact on all other diners, therefore for late arriving tables, your order may be moved to ensure smooth running for other guests and the kitchen. Please remember, if you book a table, this means other guests wanting the time you have booked cannot have it, therefore it is important that guests are here at their time of booking as we unfortunately have to turn down guests at their preferred time of dining

When booking for other guests, please ensure all guests in your party are aware of the correct booking time

For tables of 5 and over, we have a 10% service charge. For late tables who go over their 2 hour allocation, this service charge may increase to 15%

For bookings of 8 or more, you will be required to PRE-ORDER your meals - without pre-ordering, this has an obvious impact on the times we can serve other customers. If we can fit a table of 8+ guests in without a pre order, there is a non discretionary 20% service charge as we would not be able to serve other guests once the cooking process has started for your table.

We are available for meetings, weddings, birthday celebrations and private parties.  Our aim is always to have a welcoming environment for all of our guests to enjoy and feel relaxed.  Due to this, and the size of our restaurant, our children’s menu is not available after 17.30. We do not take parties with children under the age of 14 after 18.00* so as to ensure evening diners can dine in the relaxed atmosphere that The Olive Tree is renowned for

We do request that all of our guests respect other guests at all times

Due to turn around timings of guests prior to a visit, dependent on your table time requirements, bookings of 14 guests and over may incur a booking fee* Please contact us for more details
