Very friendly staff. Lovely food. The cafe itself is small but makes for a cosy friendly atmosphere. The Black Olive also has a shop attached with plenty of cheeses, pates, different breads and other yummy goodies for you to purchase.

My wife recommended we come to this place as she said the cheese on toast was to die for. She wasn't wrong. it was fantastic! Only real negative about this place is that there is not much seating inside. If only the Tardis was real eh!

First time I have visited Horsbury and really enjoyed having tea and a wonderful piece of earl grey fruit bread with wensleydale. Good service and a really nice atmosphere hope to call in again soon.

This deli is an excellent charming place to either grab a quick sandwich, or take your time and eat the best quality food at a slower place. You will never be hassled. The food is consistently great. The team also have a cheerful buzz. Horbury is a great place for a wander about. If you do visit, I'd also recommend... More

I work on the road and end up grabbing lunch from all kinds of places. Luckily I stumbled upon this place today. The service was top notch and my seeded brown bagette with chedder, roasted ham and chilli jam was the nicest sandwich I've had in yonks. Generous helpings of ingrediants aswell which is always a good thing. Would recommend... More
