The Olive Tree is well positioned by the canal for people watching. The service is efficient and friendly. The food is good value and well presented. Breakfast was on the agenda for this visit. I don't do tomatoes or mushrooms and they were more than happy to replace them with extra bacon rashers without a fuss to go with the... More

Seating available outside or in. A warm and friendly welcome on entering the premises. A good choice of food and drinks for lunch, catering for most tastes. We'll staffed so there was prompt service. Drinks and arrived with little delay, which was of good quality. The coffee was excellent. Toilets a little cramped

Nice place to visit on the canal watching the boats go by, you can eat or just have a drink. You can have cream tea, alcohol or soft drinks.

Lovely setting and friendly staff. Food was good and very tasty but in my opinion very over priced. You are paying £8 for a cheese burger and that does not even come with chips, just a bit of side salad. Overall nice food and good service but will not be going again due to the astronomical cost.

The Olive Tree has such a lovely location on the canal. As we have a dog we sat outside in a super sunny evening. The service is ok, quite pleasant but there's something lacking. Our food was ok, my husband and mum both had the fish and chips. Fish was fine but the chips were thin and overlooked. I had... More

Every time I go here there is always a long wait to be served, no matter if it's full or empty, always worth the wait for such tasty food though

We only ever stopped here for a quick drink but it is always lovely. Great position next to the canal/near the seafront. Always popular and yet you can usually find a seat.

My wife and I stopped at the Olive Tree for a snack and glass of wine - on a pleasant afternoon we were happy to sit outside enjoying our very enjoyable and reasonably priced snack with a glass of wine watching "the world go by"!!! The staff were very attentive and helpful which encourages one to return.
