The Olive Branch Inn Marsden Logo

Whatever the occasion, we love to party!
Whether it be a wedding, corporate event, birthday, christening, anniversary, or a family party, our country inn set in extensive grounds has everything you need, whatever the celebration.
Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are on hand to advise and work with you to create just the atmosphere you’re looking for. Our chefs will work with you to create a mouth-watering menu to suit your guests tastes and your budget.
Our rear restaurant, with full access to the deck and garden area, has room to seat around 40 guests; the perfect space to create memories for a smaller, more intimate celebration.

For slightly larger parties, we can combine the restaurant with the bar area to cater buffet style for up to 100 guests.
Otherwise, our extensive grounds, with breath-taking views of the Colne Valley, have all the makings of a picture perfect wedding or larger celebration and can host up to 250 people.
Please note that there is no hire fee and we have a large selection of menus, some examples of which are listed below, to cater for all tastes and budgets. Alternatively, we can bring the best The Olive Branch has to offer to you in the form of outside catering at a venue of your choice.
