With an AA Rosette to its name and a canalside location, guests at The Olive Branch near Huddersfield can enjoy modern British cooking with classic French influences whilst looking out over the Colne Valley. This 19th-century inn conceals cosy rooms, an open fire and a well-stocked bar, as well as benefiting from a sunny garden where many of the kitchen’s herbs are grown.

The Olive Branch menu is a mouth-watering blend of local meats, fresh vegetables and rich flavours. Indulge in a twice-baked blue cheese soufflé with red wine poached pears, toasted walnuts and spinach, or savour haunch of venison with redcurrant and peppercorn sauce, celeriac mash and diced root vegetables. Fish-lovers aren’t left out with the likes of sea bass fillet with lobster and shellfish bisque, wilted spinach and vanilla oil on offer.

The dessert menu is just as tempting with sticky toffee pudding, home-churned ice creams and a selection of artisan cheeses crying out to be sampled. To accompany the food there’s a substantial wine list and sumptuous cocktails and liqueurs.

In the idyllic West Yorkshire countryside on the edge of the Peak District, The Olive Branch Marsden is a 5-minute drive from both Marsden and Slaithwaite train stations.

    My wife and I enjoyed the high standard of food provided and the pleasant manner of the staff. However, there were a couple of issues. Firstly, my wife did not receive the food she ordered (mussels came with the order but were not included in the dish we selected - she does not like mussels) but did not complain and enjoyed the fish supplied, leaving the mussels.
    Second, we found the canned music a little too loud and invasive when the restaurant was quiet (around 6 p.m.)
    Whilst disappointed that we had to raise these issues ( it was our wedding anniversary) the evening was otherwise excellent.

    Overall the whole experience was lovely. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The menu was varied with different and unusual alternatives. Our food arrived promptly and tasted fabulous. The chef obviously knows what they are doing. The price was on the high side but the food was excellent so you get what you pay for. I will definitely return.

    All high quality food and service. I wonder about the price level, though.There are other good restaurants around and their prices are more moderate. That means the Olive Branch will only get a look in occasionally.

    Wonderful food with excellent service in a very welcoming environment. Loved the surf n turf. Lobster was beautiful and I could not fault the steak and I am VERY fussy about meat.

    Lived in Huddersfield for 26 years and this was my first visit, why? Food was very good, loved my starter, Queen scallops, lamb also good (maybe a little too much potato) service excellent. Will be back.
