MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Don’t let the unremarkable exterior of this 19C townhouse put you off – it might be a simple place but it’s homely and welcoming and the food is top notch. It’s run by experienced local chef Thomas Carr, who learnt his trade with Nathan Outlaw and he has drawn on Nathan’s ethos to inform the cooking here at The Olive Room. Ultra-fresh seafood is the focus, with dishes only confirmed once the day boat deliveries come in. Each dish comprises just 4 or 5 accurately prepared ingredients of the highest quality and the cooking is creative with distinct flavours and complementary textures. Menus offer a good variety of dishes and represent good value when considering the use of some more luxurious items, such as lobster. Bedrooms have a pleasant period feel and some offer great views out over the town.
