The Olive Tree, Bath

The Olive Tree Restaurant, situated in The Queensberry Hotel in Bath instructed Absolute to deliver a major refurbishment of their restaurant – the first in over a decade. The design and shopfit teams at Absolute delivered a turn key package, including procurement.

Absolute brought a relaxed elegance to the restaurant, a scheme appropriate for the quality and style of food. Absolute were also the interior team behind The Old Q Bar and have worked with the hotel for the past 5 years on their rebrand, brand management and marketing so were well placed to ensure that the design delivered the quirky brand personality the hotel is well known for.

Laurence explains: “We wanted the restaurant to have a richer more opulent feel to it, without being stuffy or over fussy. The new restaurant embraces and reflects the quirkiness that the hotel and particularly The Old Q Bar do. We are a serious restaurant that does not take itself too seriously.” 

Chris Cleghorn, Head Chef says of the new look facilities: “We believe that today guests want to experience the finest quality ingredients prepared with excellence but served in a relaxed and contemporary venue. Eating and drinking should be fun! The quirky twists that the new look restaurant have incorporated alongside the style and comfort are a perfect complement to the food, wine and drinks that we offer.”
