The Olive Branch Inn, nestled in the picturesque and historic Colne Valley, is one of Marsden’s finest dining establishments.

Burrowed amidst the National Trust Marsden Moor Estate, The Olive Branch boasts views which overlook the peaks and valleys of this heritage village.

From a modest start as an 18th Century drinking inn, The Olive Branch has been a much loved establishment since 1830 when Joseph Sykes, one of the first landlords, ran The Olive Branch as an ‘orderly house with no gambling, swearing or drunkenness’.

Fast forward 160 years and it is now in its second generation of family ownership. Traditions of a warm, family welcome and fine food have continued through to this day and we pride ourselves on impeccable service, attention to detail and our friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Whether you choose to dine in the comfortable, atmospheric restaurant with open fires, wooden beams and a relaxed atmosphere or outside on the elevated decking overlooking the rugged and dramatic landscape, we strive to offer you the finest selection of well cooked, local produce washed down with an extensive selection of award-winning cask ales, a superb choice of fine wines and a well-sourced array of gins.

The inn is situated in extensive grounds where we can host weddings, corporate events or private functions with an idyllic backdrop.
Amongst everything we offer, we truly believe it is the warm and friendly welcome and excellent customer service that sees many return time after time. When you visit us, you'll discover a little gem; a delightful country inn that has delivered consistently excellent food and service for over two decades, and which continues to go from strength to strength.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
