Excellent food and excellent service from a young girl who was working on her own having to do all the barmaiding work as well as being a waitress. She gave superb service
The food was beautiful, (black olive burger) staff were very helpful and friendly. Very nice seating areas. Prices were also very cheap for what we got. Be back again!
we were greeted on arrival by Rachael and shown to a table which was very comfortable. The choice of menu was very good and my partner and i both chose your Black Olive burger which was absolutely delicious. I am sure we will be back shortly.
The service was excellent and the staff was very polite and attentive, me and my girlfriend had a really nice meal followed up by a brilliant cocktail. I will definitely be returning here again.
Black olive is a cool trendy place . decor is brilliant . the food was great What let’s it down was the service, very young staff. looked like they where all under 20 no supervision - got a bit silly However hope the staff situation is improved. as it is a good place
This is the second time we have been to this venue & as with the first visit we were pleased with the meal & the service.we used a groupon voucher both times so it was very good value.
Very nice surroundings, friendly pleasant staff, tasty food whether your going for breakfast or out for tea, the ideal venue to meet friends and have a catch up...well worth a visit

Had black Olive burger which was very nice. I didn't like it served on a board but that was just our opinion everything fell off
I didn't get to the black olive as although I was able to book online when I rang to request altering the time I was informed there was a private party and would not be able to reserve a table???!
