    I thoroughly enjoyed the stripped fillet steak main course. The negronis packed a punch and the homemade cheesecake was light and marvellous. Excellent food and service. Highly recommended.

    Slow service. Had to ask for plates to be cleared. Then waited for ages for the next course. The place wasn’t full so I’m not sure what the problem was. Food mediocre which was a surprise as been here before and thought it was really nice. Shame. We used to really like this restaurant but won’t be returning.

    This is our second visit to The stuffed olive, 5 years after our first and unfortunately we will not be making a third! From the moment we entered, we we're made to feel unwelcome, no smiles or warmth from any of the waitresses and the manager spoke to every customer except myself and my partner. We were handed the main menu and 2 drinks menus then left for 15 minutes before anyone asked if we would like a drink and after ordering a cocktail, a soft drink and a large bottle of water we were already dissapointed. The cocktail arrived and the cocktail appeared to be a glass of ice with what can only be described as one small measure of alcohol with a slice of orange. The soft drink was served in a glass bottle and we we're given a small bottle of warm water when every other table was given a jug of iced water. After ordering, we had to wait 50 mins for our main courses even though the restaurant had minimal customers but within this time, one waitress came to our table to remove a glasses as soon as we'd drank our last sip but when we asked for a jug of water, we had to wait a further 15 minutes to receive just 2 small glasses (it took 3 requests from 2 servers just to get these!). As soon as I put my cutlery down after finishing my meal, a waitress swooped in to collect my plate even though my partner was still eating then seemed to watch us for the next 5 minutes, eagerly waiting for my partner to finish his meal. Overall, we felt extremely unwelcome and recieved poor customer service. After being blown away on our first visit 5 years ago, it is hard to believe that this is still the same restaurant and unfortunately we will be no longer be recommending it to friends and family and will definitely not be making a third visit.

    We have been to the Stuffed Olive many times over the years and it never disappoints. The menu is always interesting and the food is well prepared and excellent quality. My only comment is that you need to be prepared to pay ‘London’ prices: £60 per head including drinks without being extravagant.

    We found the place very noisy with back ground talking. The food was nice and flavourful but the portions very small. We finished with the Eaton mess which was served in a sundae dish. Would not go again

    Awful. Slow service. I mean really slow. Waited 40 mins for a bottle of wine and a kids apple juice. Food was awful, Childs pizza was shop brought, and the burger was over cooked and dry. Chocolate cake was dry. Not even an average meal.

    First time we had been there. We booked very early on a Tuesday evening so only one other table occupied - and it is a relatively spartan setting - so it was a tad quiet! The upside was that service was immaculate - and friendly. We were exploring venues to take posh friends for a meal. The food was excellent - nicely imaginative and looked good on the plate. We drank Pinot Grigio (yawn!) but it was a truly impressive bottle so very enjoyable. We're coming back.
