Accommodating staff, warm atmosphere and a very nice meal. We were booked in late and were obviously the last people in. The service was good despite that and no staff sitting around with their coats on waiting for us to leave, just a very pleasant experience.

We only had a light lunch, but it was very good and the staff were polite, and the food arrived in good time. The thing that makes this place special is the location, on the Canal in Bude ( and we had sunshine) just made it for us. And the fact we have an Olive tree in our own town,... More

We went here last Saturday night. Welcomed immediately and promptly served for our drinks order which then followed by a quick food order. We weren't kept waiting for very long before our delicious starters arrived followed by a generous portion for main courses. Then to top it off was a great pudding! Good service and great location!

Great location for this restaurant and it would be tempting for the food quality/value to drop because it is between the canal and the river in a very tourist busy area.

Just spent a week in Bude,walking each day ,stopping and having coffee and cake in Olive Tree,all fantastic. What a shame on our last evening we decided to have a fish and chip meal,what a mistake. The menu should had stated,frozen chips and a plate of batter( so little fish)don't make the same mistake as we did.

We have visited this restaurant twice, on both of our visits to Bude. The location is great, overlooking the canal, we sat outside watching the ducks and the world go by, very relaxing. The food is good and reasonably priced, and the service excellent. We will definitely visit again.
