Always great

Sandwich selection is incredible and every one I have tried has been lovely. The cakes are also well worth trying if you're nearby.

Have sandwiches from here once a week, the egg mayo and crispy bacon is superb, would recommend this to everyone. I am currently working through the menu, the Beef bite has to be tried.

The Olive Tree offers an excellent selection of sandwiches, cakes and savouries with a regularly changed specials board and a solid list of regular options.
