The Olive Branch pub is situated in the pretty village of Clipsham just two miles of the A1 in the tiny county of Rutland. The pub was originally three farm labourers cottages which were knocked together to make a pub in 1890. It had been the heart of the village community up until its closure in 1997.

With the help of friends and family Marcus, Sean and Ben renovated the pub to bring it back to its former glory as a traditional village pub, and then added luxury accommodation to create this wonderful village inn, with open fires, antique tables and chairs mixed with pine kitchen tables and benches. The atmosphere is friendly and informal with chestnuts roasted on the fires in winter and homemade lemonade and barbecues in the garden in summer.

The Olive Branch is now a very busy pub and inn, frequented by villagers as well as diners from miles around. The Olive Branch serves traditional and innovative pub food, fine wines and real ales all at affordable prices. The atmosphere is friendly and informal with chestnuts roasting on the fires in winter and homemade lemonade and barbecues in the garden in summer.

Since opening The Olive Branch has been awarded the 'Les Routiers Inn of the Year 2001', the Morning Advertiser 'Freehouse Pub of the Year 2001' Silver Award, the 'Good Pub Guide 2004' Wine List of the Year, Leicestershire Dining Pub of the Year 2003 & 2004, as well as holding a Michelin Star since 2002 only the 2nd pub to receive such an accolade.
