Excellent service from table to till. The food was well presented and well served and very well worth eating, the cafe is the most delightful place to visit with wonderful staff. The new method of meeting, greeting and showing to the table adds much to the pleasure of the Olive Tree Cafe experience.

I love everything about The Olive Tree! Customer service is great, the food is delicious and reasonably priced, the garden ( The only space available during Covid restrictions) has a cosy atmosphere, delightful to see all the plants around the garden and enchanting to hear all the bird song! My family and I have our Sunday lunch there. Brilliant place !!!!

I’m a big fan of this little cafe and have been coming here for many years. In present climes, This was a real treat and nine months in the waiting to have lunch at the Olive Tree cafe with my bestie friend. Coffee and walnut cake to die for as was our toasted sandwich and coffee. Everyone there has worked so hard to make it possible to have a taste of normal life. Thank you!
