Olive Tree Brasserie, Warrington

Olive Tree Brasserie 2

48 London Road, Stockton Heath, Warrington WA4 6HP
 
 3rd May 2018 – Lunch
 
This is a Greek Mediterranean Restaurant & Bar and is the fourth restaurant to be launched by young entrepreneur Dean Wilson. Designed akin to his existing restaurants with industrial lighting, exposed copper pipework and geometric patterned tiling the restaurant is a stylish and contemporary space in which to enjoy the deliciously modern Greek food on offer.

Outside the appearance is inviting, a new restaurant which has only been open for 5 weeks so all good. We only waited for a few moments before being taken to our table, we hadn’t booked.
 
The décor was industrial and dark in some places. There were a quite a few tables taken considering it was lunchtime, a friendly, busy atmosphere. The crockery and glasses were unusual.

The staff were friendly and accommodating. The Vegan option on the lunch menu had sold out (it was only 1.30pm).
 
We both ordered from the LUNCH PRONTO menu at £10.95 which included a Main Course and a drink (we chose rose wine). As the Vegan option had sold out we ordered the Kolokythia Stifado – Roast butternut squash, mushroom & pistachio stifado with Greek style roast potatoes, this was on the Main Menu.

The meal was served in little casserole dishes, it might have been easier to eat on the plate with the potatoes though. A side salad of veg or salad would have been a good option, maybe the waitress could’ve suggested that?
 
Speaking to Mark the Manager he informed us that they get their food direct from Greece and some local produce too. The Olive Tree Brasserie is an independent company with another three restaurants in Chester, Preston and Lytham St. Annes.  They also support sustainable fishing and use paper straws instead of plastic ones.
 
Although we didn’t order a dessert we did notice a vegan option – Milopita – Granny Smith apple pie, cinnamon & walnuts, orange & Metaxa brandy, honey ice cream. Spot the obvious mistake – we pointed out the ‘honey ice cream’ to Mark who assured us that for the vegan option it is served with a vegan ice cream. I ordered a soya milk latte – unfortunately they didn’t have any non-dairy milk but the waitress went out specially to buy some for me which was much appreciated.
