Safari Supper for The Great Bath Feast


We are utterly delighted to be a part of The Safari Supper event on Thursday 16th October for The Great Bath Feast.

Joining forces with three of Bath’s most celebrated restaurants, we’ll be bringing you an evening of fine food, fine wines and fun!  Guests enjoying this moveable feast will be transported in comfort by a fleet of chauffer-driven BMWs so even the parking is taken care of!

Nobody does chic like the Italians and nobody does Italian as well as Aqua which is where the journey will begin with a Prosecco and canapé reception in their beautiful Walcot St premises.


With appetites whetted, the safari will move on to Blunos for the next two courses. Guest chef Richard Buckley of Acorn Vegetarian Kitchen will prepare the starter and then Martin Blunos will prepare a fishy feast using the best ingredients that the market can offer.


Finally, the cars will take guests to your’s truly, The Olive Tree Restaurant, where our talented young Head Chef, Chris Cleghorn will be rounding off the evening with a spectacular dessert followed by coffee and petit fours.


Tickets are £90 per person and include:

  • A glass of Prosecco with canapés
  • Three courses each accompanied by a selected glass of wine
  • Coffee and petit fours

Keep your eyes peeled on this page as the ticket purchase details are coming soon…


The Greenest in Bath…

Here at The Olive Tree Restaurant, and our hotel The Queensberry, we’re pretty passionate about The Environment and being green is one of many things we strive to achieve each day in our quest for the best guest experience. Therefore, we were thrilled to have been announced as the only establishment in Bath to receive the prestigious TripAdvisor GreenLeaders certification (cue applause).


The GreenLeaders Program recognises hotels that engage in environmentally friendly practices, making it easier for travelers to find and book a greener stay. Those lucky properties to be awarded are marked with a badge on their TripAdvisor page, with a list of green policies and commitments. The top national and international green industry and sustainability experts helped develop the scheme to ensure places like us meet the high standards that guests expect. We wouldn’t want any less for our lovely diners at The Olive Tree!


Need our heads get any bigger, we’re still celebrating after receiving a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for 2014, showcasing us as part of the top 10 percent of businesses listed on the World’s Largest Travel site.  We’re more than chuffed with this accolade, as certificates are given only to establishments that consistently achieve outstanding traveler reviews on TripAdvisor. Who do we have to thank for that? Well, our fabulous guests of course! Without you and your back-pattingly good feedback, we wouldn’t be receiving these wondrous awards, so do keep adding your experiences to TripAdvisor and letting us know how we did! Here’s to being green!

OF COURSE we do this because we love to do it, and OF COURSE the pleasure on the faces (and in the comments) of clearly-delighted guests is what drives us, but sometimes, just sometimes, it’s hard not to be thrilled by the praise of national publications. So please, have a look at The Times Travel section, Saturday July 13 2013. There’s no bias or obligation with these people: they breeze in, breeze out and say what they like. So when they say how much they like us, and rate us as a nine-out-of-ten, we hope you’ll understand when those ripe notes you hear are the sound of us, blowing our own trumpet…

The first reviews are in!

Chris Cleghorn

Chris-CleghornIn this business, rest is not an option, but change is: we’re delighted to announce the new Head Chef for The Olive Tree, Chris Cleghorn.

Chris has honed his exceptional cooking skills as the protégé of a trio of world renowned Michelin Star chefs: Heston Blumenthal (Fat Duck at Bray), Michael Caines (Gidleigh Park) and Adam Simmonds (Danesfield House). Chris has drawn influence from these culinary masters to create his own exciting style.

Along with the recently-announced introduction of new restaurant manager, Joss Roussanne, Chris’s arrival will take The Olive Tree’s quality of food and dining experience to a new and exciting level and Chris is impatient to start the climb.

“This is a great opportunity for me,” he says “The Olive Tree is a beautiful restaurant in an amazing hotel and  city. The Olive Tree serves excellent food, everyone knows that; the challenge is to take it to the next level. I know we can and I know we will establish the restaurant as Bath’s finest;  I just can’t wait to get started.”

Joss Roussanne

Our new restaurant manager, Joss Roussanne, has begun work at The Olive Tree and we’re thrilled he’s here. He comes to us with an impressive array of experience acquired from a range of places such as Bovey Castle, The Manor House at Castle Combe as well as plenty of Parisian restaurants. We’re happy to welcome him to Bath and are excited to have him on the team.
