Book a Table



As a result of so many last minute cancellations and 'no-shows', we now only take bookings up to 30 days in advance (unless you are staying overnight with us) and require your card details when booking. You will be charged a ‘late cancellation / no show fee’ of £15 per person if you fail to turn up or cancel less than 3 hours before your booking. We will send you a reminder the day before your booking with a link to cancel should you need to do so. 


Olif is a small, intimate restaurant and the majority of our tables are for 2 people. Due to our layout, space and staffing constraints, we can only accept bookings for up to 4 people. If you book more than one table to accommodate a larger group, we will not be able to seat you together. We do take larger bookings for our special events such as our Bottomless Brunches, tasting evenings or for private functions. Please email us if you would like more information.


Olif is a small, intimate restaurant designed as an adults-only space but we welcome children 14 years and older.


We have a few tables where we can accommodate well-behaved dogs on a lead. If you are hoping to bring your dog, please let us know in the special requests section of your booking so we can make sure that we have space in one of our dog-friendly spaces.

Please note that opening hours are subject to revision.


Our building was built in an elevated position (to avoid floods!) in Victorian times so we are limited in what we can do to make the building more accessible. Olif is accessed by 12 steps directly from the highway (no pavement).  Our toilets are on the 1st floor (11 steps on the staircase). If you or anyone that will be coming with you has limited mobility, please get in touch so we can see how we can help. 


We have a small kitchen and prepare the dishes ourselves. While we try to make every effort to ensure that there is no cross-contamination with allergens, we cannot guarantee this due to our working environment. We cater for guests who are gluten free, dairy free or vegan as standard in most of our dishes, but if you have an allergy / food intolerance, please let us know when booking. Our online menu is updated regularly, but if you have an allergy, please let us know on arrival so that we can help you to make your choices safely.


If the time and date you would like is not available, you can leave your details below to request to be put on our waitlist, and we will get in touch if we get any cancellations.

Please note that our waitlist is only intended for guests looking for tables in the next 3 weeks.  

Please ensure that you check our opening hours before requesting a time / date.
