Though not strictly Norwich, the Olive Branch Bar & Restaurant is well worth the 10-odd mile journey.
Smart and welcoming with gentle contemporary leanings inside, the Olive Branch is fine dining with a relaxed and non-pretentious atmosphere. Priding itself on making the most of the plethora of fresh, good quality local produce on its doorstep, food is creative, delicious and beautifully presented. Menus change daily, with a specials board available.
There are A la Carte options for both lunch and dinner that include main courses of the manner of Gressingham Duck Breast with Green Peppercorn Brandy Cream Sauce served with Champ Mashed potatoes and sauté Spring Greens or Pan Fried Salmon Fillet served on a Smoked Haddock Risotto with Broccoli and Fish Cream Sauce.
The non-A la Carte lunch and dinner menus consist of equally mouthwatering starters and mains, of a slightly more traditional ‘pub food’ variety – Fish and Chips, Steak and Kidney Norfolk Ale Pie, and Homemade Beef Burger.
There is at least one vegetarian option on all the menus. Other dietary requirements can be met – just ask.
At the bar you’ll find a selection of local ales, alongside a formidable assortment of wines to accompany your meal.
As well as using local suppliers, the Olive Branch makes its own pate and bread on site.
Sunday Lunch (2 courses £14.50, 3 courses £17) consists of a good variety of options from the traditional roast (Beef, Lamb, Pork…) to fish and veggie options.
