We had a really lovely stay here and the staff were friendly and efficient, nothing was too much trouble. The evening meal was very good, the room was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed and the breakfast was really yummy. Fantastic value for what we paid and wold definitely go again. The only tiny grumble was that there wasn\'t a spare loo roll but I\'m sure if we had asked for one it wouldn\'t have been a problem, just an oversight, I\'m sure.

Having stayed at the Olive Branch sometime ago we were not disappointed this time. The room was perfect and the owners and staff a pleasure to deal with. With only 3 bedrooms it was like being in a private house and being waited upon. The food was excellent and plenty of it. Sitting outside in the garden before dinner with a drink was most enjoyable. We will be back sooner than later. Well done.

Amazing Stay At A Beautiful Hotel.
Amazing, no other way to describe this place. We stopped for 1 night on a bed, dinner and breakfast basis. The food is unreal, we both had steak and it was better than any steakhouse we have ever been to! Too much food to eat, we had to have a break before pudding.
Well worth the money to stay, staff attentive, a good range of beers, gins and wine. The breakfast was also amazing, im not usually one for breakfast but i cleared my plate.

Amazing views! If you walk down the grounds there is a public footpath that is tranquil and will take you to the nearest towns. We went left and took a nice stroll down to marsden, gorgeous town to sit by the river and enjoy a pint.

Overall a excellent hotel/pub, amazing food, even better views and even better staff. I would highly reccomend this to anyone!

What a fabulous find the Olive Branch is. We have had it on our list of places to visit for a while now, and even met folks whilst we were travelling in China who knew of the place and highly recommended it, but it took us until this New Year to make the journey. How we wish we had done it sooner! From the minute we arrived we were made to feel very much at home and the food - we just couldn\'t believe how fantastic that was. We loved our stay, it is as simple as that. A lovely, homely atmosphere, with food so beautifully presented and full of flavour. Our room was spacious, clean and very well equipt. Thank you to one and all for starting off 2017 in such a wonderful way for us both. All best wishes and enjoy your well earned rest whilst the place is closed - you must be exhausted.

Great Place - What A Little Gem!
We stayed here on a Saturday night as we were attending an afternoon and evening \'do\' for Mikron\'s end of tour last night in Marsden. We didn\'t have an evening meal here as that was part of the \'do\'. Though the Olive Branch had provided the catering for the 1st course and it was truly delicious.
The accommodation was superb with a very large double room and a modern bathroom.
The breakfast on Sunday morning was exceptionally good using local produce and cooked to order and with a wide variety of preserves.
We found all the staff very pleasant and helpful and had a room ready for us early at lunch time Saturday.
It\'s about a mile or so outside Marsden and had planned to use taxis in and out as we needed to do the journey twice and didn\'t want to drive. We were pleasantly surprised about the frequent bus service which we were able to make use of both in the afternoon and evening.
We do echo other reviews that it would be nice to have drinks making facilities in the room rather than in the corridor though it didn\'t detract from our stay. Having said that there was a great choice of drinks including a proper coffee machine, leaf tea and a mini bar if you wanted it (run on an honesty box) which would not be practical in every room.
There was a couple of minor issues that previous guests don\'t seem to have reported and truly believe will be acted upon.
Thanks Paul and team a fantastic night\'s stay.

Stay At The Olive Branch Inn
I was hoping to be given the opportunity to review the olive branch inn. We stayed last night (24th June) and immediately felt welcomed as soon as we entered the building. The service from start to finish was exceptional. The room was beautiful, the inn was beautiful and the food was beautiful.

The room was exceptional and just what we were after. A classy feel with excellent features.

The staff were amazing, professional and more than anything extremely friendly.

The inn was stunning. Beautiful decor, tastefull features and lovely music which set the scene for a wonderful night.

The food was better than I or my wife have ever tasted before. Perfectly cooked and served at an appropriate portion size. Starter, main and pudding were exquisite.

Both myself and my wife have not stopped talking about our stay, our room and the service and how welcome we were made to feel. We will be staying monthly now as we have found a real little gem. Thank you again for making a special night even more special and personal.

We stayed at the Olive Branch after attending a friends wedding at Crow Hill.
The Olive Branch is easy to find on the main road, and the car park at the rear is generous. Just be careful existing the car park as traffic on the main road was surprisingly fast.
The room was pleasant and the bathroom was clean and well equipped. If booking in future, we would request a room that\'s not over the bar, as the noise was a bit much before closing time.
Very unusually for me. I didn\'t rate the full English breakfast at all. It was cooked from one side only, and almost raw on the other. I\'ve never has a crunchy fried egg before!

The rooms were comfortable, spotless and quiet although just upstairs and the staff felt like friends from the minute we arrived. Finally the food the lovely pub. Rightly proud of the quality of the ingredients, dishes were not over complicated and let the natural flavours speak for themselves. You could tell the meat was very fine indeed. We had expected to eat out for two of the nights to vary our evenings but quickly decided that would be very silly and an opportunity missed.

We took your dinner, bed and breakfast offer for our anniversary. The welcome was friendly, the room was a good size and comfortable and dinner was delicious. Perhaps our only note, is that the bathroom in the Duck room needs some attention - a broken shower head, hole in the ceiling from a broken light and towels that really were ragged and well used.

Our Stay At The Olive Branch Inn After A Friends Wedding At Crow Hill
We couldn\'t have asked for any more from our stay at The Olive Branch Inn. All staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the breakfast was served to perfection and we were even kindly given a lift to Crow Hill once having checked in to our room.
Our room was clean, tidy and everything that we expected. It was cosy,warm and extremely welcoming.

Yorkshire Hospitality At Its Best
As the accommodation was in a separate part of the building with its own entrance it was ideal for our purposes. We arrived at The Olive Branch at about 7PM having booked online only that morning and were warmly welcomed and shown to our accommodation without any delay. As our visit to the area was to do a job which entailed attending a meeting in Halifax at 8:30PM and then having to get up at 5AM It proved to be perfect as the layout of the accommodation meant that we could be totally independent and would not disturb anyone else. There was ample free tea, coffee and water provided for guest use and even drinks in a fridge which could be purchased and paid for by honesty box. After doing the job we were there for we returned to The Olive Branch for an excellent breakfast served by attentive and pleasant staff before leaving for our home county of Lancashire. The rooms were well appointed and spotlessly clean with ample towels and toiletries, the beds very comfortable indeed. All in all excellent value for money and an enjoyable stay. Would definitely stay again.

Lovely With A Little But....
A lovely warm welcome by staff and accommodation. Our room was very pleasant with great facilities in a scenic setting.
We were able to relax after check in before dining. Another warm welcome in the restaurant with a great menu to choose from. However my wife made a couple of ropey choices. The scallops for starter were very small and a little disappointing, just two big juicy scallops instead of six tiny ones would have been preferred, not much to get your teeth into, great bread tough. Also the chocolate tart for dessert was tough to negotiate because it was cold / hard. Very dense and dry to eat. Good points, lovely beef fillet, great Yorkshire products and tasty sticky toffee. Service was good, some training may have been underway but always polite.
Besides a couple of hiccups with menu choice, the stay was great value at £120 DBB. Only the bar bill to consider! We\'d recommend give it a try.

Bed Breakfast Evening Meal Package
We have eaten at The Olive Branch a number of times & always found the food great. As a special celebration, we decided to book a Bed, Breakfast & Evening Meal Package.
This is fantastic value, particularly on Sundays & weekdays.
We both had Mushroom Risotto & Ice cream dessert. My wife had Fillet Steak & I had Lobster & Fillet. All of the courses were superbly cooked & tasted great. It really was a nice change for there to be no surcharges for anything on the A La Carte menu. The ambience was relaxed, with friendly & knowledgeable service, a superb wine list coupled with Rod Stewart background music - all of which created a memorable evening.
The room was really nicely appointed & the bed was extremely comfortable & made for a great sleep (aided & abetted no doubt by the preceeding food & wine).
The following morning we had a lovely breakfast, which fully lived up to our high expectations.We will be back.

Lovely Place For A Nights Stay & Yummy Food
We bought the deal as a Groupon. Included was a nights stay, sharing steak platter and two glasses of procesco. Abit Mis leading about the breakfast as its only a continental breakfast was included in the deal (not a full English like you\'d expect) we had to pay £20 extra for this, but they did bring it to our room at no extra cost so we had breakfast in bed. The food was lovely and steak cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere and lovely spacious room and friendly staff! The only snag was there wasn\'t enough hot water in the bathroom. We both wanted a shower to freshen up on arrival and s shower in the morning, but there just wasn\'t enough hot water do we both had cold-Luke warm showers both times :-( overall nice place to stay and well worth the money on the Groupon deal

We had a lovely time at the Olive Branch and great value too on the Dinner Bed and Breakfast option. Revised menu much tighter than the last time we visited and better for that. We had Gevrey Chambertin (Rossignol-Trapet methinks?) which was a bit light against the rather marvellous Chateaubriand. We thought the wine choice a bit restricted, given the wide range of flavours on the menu. Bath water was lukewarm when we got there in the late afternoon but was hot by bedtime. Having tea and coffee in the corridor was OK, but a bigger cup could be useful for tea. Rooms were warm and cosy on a frosty night outside. The staff were very helpful and friendly, nothing being too much trouble. Good breakfast the following morning topped off a lovely stay not far away.

I booked a voucher from TravelZoo, which included bed & breakfast with a beef rib dinner plus a glass of prosecco. We had a great time and the Olive Branch is a great place to stay. We stayed in the duck rom which is one of three guest rooms, our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable, with everything you could wish for, little touches such as shower caps, body wash to a sewing kit etc. also tea & coffee making facilities. The evening meal was to die for. the beef so tender it melted in your mouth, in fact everything we ate was divine and even though the restaurant was busy the staff are friendly, welcoming and very helpful, Breakfast was lovely also and it seems to me that the Olive Branch use the best and freshest ingredients because every mouthful was a delight.

A Lovely Night Away
We live within 4 miles of the Olive Branch but took advantage of a fantastic last minute offer of 3 course a la carte meal, overnight stay and breakfast for 2 and were not disappointed.
The restaurant was not the stuffy formal affair I had been afraid of but a comfy eclectically decorated series of pub rooms. The starters were tasty, the mains good and the assiette of chocolate and cheeseboard were amazing MMM! Had we paid the full price there were a couple of attentions to detail that I might have commented on but under the circumstances we were happy.
The room we stayed in above the restaurant (with separate access so convenient for guests) was lovely, light and well appointed. The bed was huge and comfy, bathroom had some nice smellies and a good sized bath/shower and the hospitality bar on the landing was a fantastic touch. Again, had we been paying full price we may have been more conscious of some very small details but it was a lovely stay and we would recommend it and would stay again.
Many thanks to the team for our first visit!

The restaurant had a lovely ambiance and we felt very relaxed. The only tiny thing that was a slight let down was breakfast. The poached eggs were not cooked inside and the fried egg was crusty around the edges.It wasn't a problem as we were full, I just thought you would appreciate full feedback. Had lovely time and would recommend to friends.

We enjoyed our stay the room was very clean and comfortable but felt the continental breakfast could be improved. The coffee maker wouldn't work properly and the milk was sour so we couldn't have cereals. Bread would be better than the croissants as they were a bit too sweet for early morning.

3rd Visit
This is my 3rd visit to the "Olive Branch" in 2 years, I have visited for a 1 nighter, then 2 nights and most recent another 1 night. This last visit was to introduce my eldest son and family visiting from Ireland to the delights of this wonderful hostelry. with rooms. Warm,cozy and very inviting with a tremendous atmosphere about the whole place,especially the Bar area. Dining area at the rear,one of three areas. Has lovely views down across fields to the Canal,inviting walkers. Food portions very ample,well cooked by Chef/Propietor from an extensive menu. Perhaps downside in the Bar is lack of hand pulled real ale but plenty of bottled beers which I found quite expensive in price. 3 very large double bedrooms, accessed from outside main door entailing 10 yrd walk,keys to access this residential area. rooms which are of 4 star hotel standard have very large bathrooms en.suite.All the usual goodies including seating area. Another very important feature are the staff.Sammy' and Julie appear to do everything. Tend the Bar,booking in overnight guests/Dinner bookings.Waiting on at Dinner plus servicing the 3 bedrooms. Julie is also the Breakfast cook. As I said in a review after my first visit. The Olive Branch is a place for not only a drink and a meal but for that very special occasion.I guarantee that anyone visiting,especially to stay overnight will have very happy memories to take away. I am already pencilling in dates for my wife's Birthday lunch and a further overnight with my second son in near future.

A Little Yorkshire Gem
I stayed in 'Topiary' a light, spacious and prettily decorated room with a good airy bathroom. The bed is very comfortable, and there is a rattan sofa and a chair at a desk, so you don't have to sit on the bed. As the Inn is on the A62 there is some traffic noise, but it is not intolerable. Besides, the Inn is in such a beautiful position in the upper Colne valley, with a lovely view, that it more than makes up for any slight disturbance from the road. The restaurant is welcoming and the food is very good. I took breakfast on a tray in the room, which was fine for my needs, but you can go down for a full breakfast. The Olive Branch is a good choice for visitors to the Huddersfield area, whether for business or leisure - the walking around the Marsden area is great.

Shame About The Music!
Very good food, excellent wine and nice atmosphere. Room was large, bed was comfy and the bathroom big and clean. Only complaint was the noise from the music in the bar, the beat of which was clearly audible in our bedroom. It was turned off shortly after 11.15 which is fair enough I suppose (though we wanted to go to bed at 10.30) but it was a bit more frustrating that it was turned back on at 7.30 in the morning - no lie in for us then! To be fair we had booked breakfast for 8.00 - but say we hadn't?

Relaxing And Refreshed
We live in Huddersfield but the opposite end if town. We were heading to Titanic Spa a short distance away and wanted an overnight stay nearby rather than going home for our 12th wedding anniversary and celebrating 20 years together. The Olive Branch offered the Simply Sleep deal for £60 which was very reasonable compared to other places we had looked at. We arrived at 9.30pm and had had a courteous email a week before confirming our stay and arrangements for contact should we arrive when the restaurant wasn't open. Overhaul the room was very good. We stayed in the room at the back - Serengeti room - which was furnished beautifully, clean, and also had a large bathroom. We didn't have a cooked breakfast the following morning as we thought £10 each was a lot to pay on top of the room, - no doubt the breakfast would have been good looking at reviews of the food here, but we settled for the help yourself continental breakfast available outside the room. Good choice of coffee, cereals, fresh juice and bread left to toast. Nice hand written message left in the morning saying - "Good morning serengeti!" We found the room comfirtable in temperature, clean, and spacious. It wasn't particularly noisy from the bar, nor from the road. We would definately consider staying again. Thanks too to the young lady who greeted us and showed us to our room - she was very polite, friendly, and professional and was expecting us ! Thanks very much

Duck Room & Restaurant
We had a lovely stay. The room was just what we would want and the food in the restaurant absolutely first class. The staff were also very polite and friendly. We have already recommended you to others. We have a friend moving to the area we may well be back very soon!

Food & accommodation superb as always as is the service and the welcome. Slight niggle for anybody needing to work is the WiFi is temperamental but I'm assured that will be fixed.

Accomodation At The Olice Branch
I stayed overnight as it was nearby a wedding venue. The room was lovely and comfortable. The staff were really friendly when i arrived. Outside the bedroom was a shared facility with the other 3 rooms, and an abundance of tea/coffe & a mini bar too! In the morning fresh bread was available to make toast & tea before heading off. Next time i would like to book a table in the restaurant and make a full evening of it.

Olive Branch 2 Night Stay
Dinner in the restaurant and breakfast was excellent - bacon that tasted like bacon! Staff - excellent, friendly and efficient. Room very nice. I liked idea of self service for breakfast just outside your rooom for any 'room only' bookings. Add some large tea mugs (not coffee cups) and that would be perfect! Music from restaurant can be heard in room - not ever so loud, but could disturb a very light sleeper.

Room Only
Needing to stay overnight in Marsden for a wedding at Hey Green, we were very pleased with the accomodation offered by the Olive Branch. Short taxi ride to and from Hey Green. Sadly, missed the chance to sample the food at the Olive Branch, but continental style breakfast included was very good. Hope to return under less pressure and sample the evening food next time.

A Quiet Weekend On The Moor
We enjoyed a wonderfully relaxing evening at the Olive Branch which was an Xmas present. Our meal on Saturday evening was superb as was our Serengeti themes room. We'd recommend the Olive Branch wholeheartedly!

Christmas Day Stay
Great food, comfortable room. One request - turn off / reduce the heating! It was very warm in our room (Topiary) even with our window open. In Holly's bedroom (Duck) they could not open a window so they were uncomfortable warm.

Perfection
Olive Branch is very special.On a bitter cold winter evening to walk into the reception cum bar one is immediately transformed into a state of wonder and further expectation.Warmth,furnishings and general layout of the downstairs area and together with welcome from the Proprietor and later from the two smiling girls behind the bar who coupled the jobs of tending the bar, Taking dinner order and waiting on at tables expertly.Dinner was as good if not better than any meal I have had in any Hotel/Restaurent in over 30 years of living in hotels during my employment years.We stayed at the Olive Branch on the special deal they have of £140 per couple. A La Carte dinner bed and breakfast,continental or full English served in the bedroom or restaurent.Our visit was a special occasion being Birthdays(2) and Xmas presents (2)for our friends starting with bottle of White Wine in the bedroom on arrival.Bedrooms were large,warm well appointed and had everything requiered for our comfort. Outside in the corridor were tea/coffee, cups plus other items plus a large Fridge which had in it Beers,Lager, soft drinks bottled water etc and titled "Honesty Bar" list of drinks and priced,leave money in bedroom on departure or pay at the bar.The Olive Branch is not a place just for a good meal,to see it at its best is to visit overnight and be pampered as our party was.Prices generally were typical of a good class Restaurent.Extensive wine list good real ales and very good selection of Whiskies some of which I had not seen since my days working in Scotland.I look forward to visiting on a summer day when it will be possible to walk on the canal bank which lies 400 yds or so behind the Olive Branch. Next time it will be for two nights. This Inn is "The" place for that special occasion and we shall look forward to this. Our ages by the way are 65 to 81 Brian M

Lovely Room
Shame about the breakfast. We didn't opt for the £14.50 per head cooked breakfast which seemed a bit steep on top of £90 for the room. There was a breakfast bar outside the room with cereals, tea/coffee but the juice in the fridge was actually fermenting. Apart from that nice to have breakfast in bed and the room was really lovely: spacious, comfortable and with a big bathroom.

50th Birthday
This is the third stay at the Olive Branch and I was not disappointed at all... we had been celebrating my partner's 50th Birthday (we wanted to get away for a quiet evening just the two of us)From checking in to our room and the evening meal & breakfast everything was excellent food to a very high standard and the service was superb !!! The drinks and honesty bar is a lovely touch … However we did have the fire alarm going off at 12.45am a guest had tumbled and caught the alarm button by mistake .. after giving Paul a call on his mobile he arrived within 5 minutes ... I would recommend the food the overnight stay ... all in all we had a lovely stay and will be back very soon. A big thank you to Paul and all the staff for making us feel very special

A Really Surprising Find!
We were touring Yorkshire - two couples - and were recommended by a relative to the Olive Branch. We'd visited and stayed there before but WOW what an improvement. And it was by no means shabby before. The two rooms we had were absolutely excellent (though being at the front a tad noisy from passing traffic). And the dinner we had was first class. Just try the belly pork or the crispy duck, or the lamb shank. First class cooking from the ladies in the kitchen. We ALL started with seared scallops and chorizo. And the puds - fabulous sorbets and ice creams in home made brandy snaps. Really helpful, attentive staff. We on the dinner, bed and breakfast deal which we thought was very good value. We'd bsolutely recommend the Olive Branch to anyone.

Excellent Break.
We were very impressed on arrival at not only the initial appearance of the olive branch but the greeting from the staff . After being shown to our lovely room we took advantage of the tea and coffee from the hospitality tray outside our room. I thought the cd player and selection of cd's were a great idea. We then went down into the bar for a drink before our meal. All the staff who delt with us during our meal were helpful , friendly and proffessional. It's a beautiful cosey place with a warm atmosphere. The food I'd out of this world and the breakfast is great too. With the excellent customer service , lovely room and fab food. We will defiantly be back. The added bonus for us was the great walks along the nearby canal and the moors. We had a fantastic weekend.

Great Experience
It was well worth travelling over 100 miles to stay at the Olive Branch. We choose it at random, from the Good Food Guide, and were not disappointed.
The room was comfortable and well supplied with tea, coffee, etc. The food was fantastic, with a great choice for each course. I am lactose intolerant but this didn't seem to matter as any dish I wanted was provided to suit my needs.
I would recommend this Restaurant to anyone and be certain that they would not let me down!
Thanks for a great experience.

More Bang For The Buck Than Most Dining Pubs With Rooms And The Best I Have Visited In The Area
This a real find; reasonably close to the M62 and neatly bisecting Leeds and the culinary wasteland that is Manchester. Avoids needing to trek further north to the many splendid place in North Yorkshire for a good pub/restaurant with rooms.

If you can get it, the room and fixed-price menu deal is bordering on criminal in the customers favour: checked into a spacious room with good bathroom before a pint of great local beer then a generous silky slab of chicken liver terrine. Small but juicy, rib-eye steak to follow was served nicely on a small chopping board with a huge mushroom, a sprig of oven-roasted tomatoes and a basket on sinful, tobacco fries. The accompanying vegetable were fine but superflous in my opinion and not quite as modish as the rest of the meal. An acid test of a kitchen, creme brulee, to round things off was authentic but pleasantly unctious with a nice thick caramelly topping. Reading this back, it sounds like unadventurous comfort food which is anything but the case. This is a skilful kitchen working with good ingredients producing fairly adventurous comfort food at a very reasonable price in comfortable surroundings with excellent service and quality wine choices by the glass, again at very fair prices.

Sorry to bang on about the fair prices but it is so rare to find anywhere of this calibre that is affordable for private or small business accounts. On this showing, I'll venture into the more expensive ala carte menu next time I visit. All in all, more bang for the buck than most dining pubs with rooms and the best I have visited in the area.

Weekend Away
Our room was very pleasant and well appointed. The help yourself breakfast was a good idea, but with it being a Bank Holiday Weekend, we ended up with only one lot of bread for both mornings and no butter at all. The room was a little cold, it would have been good to be able to turn the heating on. Other than the comments it was a pleasent stay thank you.
