Promotional Feature

The creation of the Olive Tree came about as a result of a shared passion for food and wine by a few like-minded individuals. That passion includes a determination to source only the very best ingredients and finest quality products. We believe this approach is not only commercially rewarding but also incredibly satisfying of our customers. Sourcing our ingredients at their peak of perfection means eliminating many suppliers and we have been careful to develop only those who share our polices. Our passion borders on the neurotic when it comes to freshness. Our policy is from the garden, sea and field to the table. This freshness manifests itself in the tastes and smells of the kitchen, there is nothing to beat freshly harvested produce.

Our menu is a seasonal one, a straight forward idea but one that ensures a quality lead approach. We have been influenced by a classic and regional continental cuisine, mainly from South of France, Italy and the whole Mediterranean region. These referential cuisines have relied on seasonal produce for centuries in order to maximise flavour and texture and to present food at its peak. Our restaurant has attracted fine diners from over the UK, celebrities such as John Parrot and Frankie Dettori have also been attracted to the Olive Tree during National & International Events.

We shall endeavour to provide not only English versions of European dishes or even classic interpretations but also interpretations of local dishes. Wherever possible ingredients such as game, lamb and beef are sourced within Yorkshire. Our fish purchasing is more pragmatic!

We are confident that our purchasing and preparation ensures maximum freshness and certifiable origin. We hope that your experience at the Olive Tree will provide you full satisfaction not only with the food but also the relaxed atmosphere.

Our spacious, airy restaurant with large plate-glass windows over looking York’s famous Clifford’s Tower (the largest remaining part of York Castle) can be found on Tower Street, a short walk from the Grand Opera House and York Dungeon.
