The winner of both a Michelin star and 3 AA Rosettes, few restaurants are as celebrated as Olive Tree in Bath. Specialising in fresh, locally-sourced British cuisine, the restaurant’s exciting seasonal menu is developed by head chef Chris Cleghorn, a protégé of Michelin-starred chefs Heston Blumenthal, Michael Caines and Adam Simmonds.
Using only the very best suppliers in the West Country, including Longman Cheese Shop and Walter Rose & Son butchers, the acclaimed chefs at Olive Tree create sumptuous variations on classic dishes. Fillet and shin beef is served with celeriac boulangère potato, roasted shallot and wholegrain mustard, while the confit leg of guinea fowl comes in a delicious gewürztraminer sauce.
The drinks at Olive Tree in Somerset are no less important than the food. The superb range of artisan spirits and outstanding wines available led to the restaurant receiving The Good Food Guide Wine List of the Year award in 2011.
Offering gourmet, sustainable, award-winning food and drink, Olive Tree in Bath is just an 8-minute drive from Bath Spa Station.

A lovely evening - attractive seating area, pleasant service and mostly great food. Loved the cured sea trout, the duck and the main course fish. Dessert less impressive (frangipane pistachio tart) - a bit dull and heavy. We liked the menu choices which meant that people could eat different menus at the same table; also gives enough choice to those who wish to put together a smaller meal. Service became less attentive as the evening wore on but it was also pleasant not to feel rushed or that the table was needed for another seating.

Can taste the Chef used heart to cook. Staff r friendly and nice except the manager seems v rush for every talk every steps. Seems without patient to wait customer to talk. Even can’t hear well what he describe the food. If without that, everything is fine.

For those after the ultimate experience from a trip to Bath - The Olive Tree is the place to dine. Housed in a period Georgian property along a seemingly residential street up by The Crescent, the atmosphere classy and unpretentious. Although the menu consists of up to 8 course tasting menus - each course is of such quality that selecting 3 to cover your usually starter, main and dessert - will suffice. The service was exceptional and consistent although a few more English accents would have been more in keeping with the surroundings.
