David from St Helens ...Last minute booking for a midweek lunch. Only a few tables taken but we received a warm welcome. Lunch time menu was ample for the event and we had good quality glass of house wine. Am intrigued about the music events in the evenings and will return in the new year....

Fat Olive was recommended to me by my son and I decided to go with some friends last Thursday night. I wasn't aware that there was a wine offer on which was a bonus as we got 2 bottles of nice red between the 4 of us which saved quite a bit of money off the bill. My dinner was delicious, I had king prawns to start which were cooked perfectly and then a sirloin steak with a homemade sauce. Us ladies were very happy with the experience and will be returning soon for lunch. Keep it up.

The Fat Olive is always welcoming with friendly service. The food is excellent, every time we go there are different specials, and although I have my personal favourites I like to try different things, because I know they will always be delicious...when we were there, there were 3 different cuts of lamb available on the menu. The toffee apple bread and butter pudding with custard and ice cream was heaven on a plate. And the prices are always very reasonable, given what they are serving, you would expect it to be more expensive.

Me and my partner visit The Fat Olive all the time the offers available are excellent, the service is second to none. My advise is once you've been you won't go anywere else!!! Keep up the good work!

I was visiting family in Parbold last week when my mother recommended your restaurant to dine with my two children. we booked a table for early evening and arrived to a very busy Tuesday night. We were greeted by a young lady and our drinks order taken swiftly. We all ordered off the Tuesday Tenner menu as it was such an attractive price. Our food was excellent and tasty(loved the garlic butter steaks) we didn't have starters so we could have desserts. Homemade sticky toffee pudding was the choice for all except my daughter who opted for the profiteroles. both excellent. Thank you The Fat olive, it is good to see businesses still providing excellent quality food matched with good service in these hard times. well done we shall return.
