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. Service isn't quick, but that's because they make every sandwich to order, and the biggest drawback of that is that you may well find yourself being tempted into buying other delicious-looking things that weren't on...

We had a sandwich run from work - an irregular event. Normally it is Asda or Morrisons for a pre-packed item for a couple of quid. I did not fancy a "posh" sandwich so I went for a Ham Salad on a bread cake. It was tasty BUT have to say that the price tag of £2.55 was a bit... More

This is a great deli shop, lots of different sandwiches to choose from, without a doubt the beef bite is the best sandwich. It's a mix of flavours beef, coleslaw, jalapeños and garlic oil are amazing! Can be busy at lunchtimes and parking is a pain

The food is tasty and good quality, however the prices are rather high for what it is. I would recommend the olive tree to my friends as... More

A fantastic deli with lots of different hot and cold sandwiches to choose from, including plenty of choice for vegetarians. Service is friendly and efficient, although it's only a small store so if there's a queue this can be off-putting. I live locally but have only recently started going here, mainly because I've discovered their delicious cakes! Always a wide... More

The staff a so so! Rude, run out of ingredients at 1330? Customer had a dog in the shop and the staff we're feeding it from the food counter. All products are very pricy, the attitude of the staff has to be seen to be believed, you are an inconvenience to conversation they are imbroyled in, stay away very slow... More
