Relaxed lunch

Dropped by here for a family lunch, sat outside and watched the world go by. Food, drinks, service was all excellent.

Well prepared food and a friendly staff. They had vegetarian options and a nice kids menu. The minus was a lack of atmosphere in the dining room. Might have been the not so welcoming interior design, making you just wanting to eat and get out. It's a shame because the place was spotless clean and the food was really good.

I had an apero there (meat cuts and drinks), the setup is clean and pleasant. The waiters where helpful and quick. I would go there again and likely book a table for a lunch/dinner.

Every year when visiting Bude we partake of this establishment. It serves good tea and coffee. They have cakes my wife would die for. I tend to go for the Cornish Cream tea. And why not. Its great. I would recommend the Olive tree for any visiter to Bude

Friendly staff, lovely food and nothing was too much trouble to make our lunch memorable. Venue was busy, but service was prompt and with a smile, and the food was served swiftly without compromising quality. Highly reccomended.

We hadn't booked, but were told we could be served within 30 mins. We had a drink outside by the canal in the evening sunshine and true to their word within 30 mins were inside and had placed our order. The evening menu is fairly limited, but we were pleased with our choices. My wife's monkfish being the highlight. The... More

Visited with family today for lunch-good menu, food obviously freshly made. Had a bit of a wait but waitress did apologise and it was worth the wait. Really appreciated local produce and listing the producers on the menu! Recommended.

We sat here after a long cycle and had cream teas. The scones, clotted cream and jam were to die for!!!
