Great Burgers

Had lunch here after a lovely walk down the canal. The burgers were delicious, obviously homemade and served with a delicious relish too. My wife had a spicy prawn pasta which she said was great too. Sat outside in the sunshine, perfect. Lovely stuff. Thanks, we will return.

Its always busy but the drink and food is standard constructed with catering supplies and overpriced. I'd rather eat food made from scratch elsewhere at the same price. Its not my favourite place because its a bit dark and busy for me but when its quieter its nice to sit on settee inside or seating outside by canal. Cream Teas,... More

Nice location next to the river and staff friendly. We ordered two sandwiches and tea for £15. The sandwiches were nothing special but expensive. We would not visit again.

We went to the Olive Tree (for evening meal) twice. Loved it. Food was lovely, on both occasions the meal was fresh, well prepared and well presented. I had the monk fish on one occasions and lovely fishcakes on the other occasions. My hubby loved the crab and chilli linguine he had it on both occasions. We had lovely bread... More

We visited the "Olive Tree" in Bude for a mid-morning coffee. We were very pleasantly surprised by the interior. Quirky Pictures on the wall. Very pleasant waitress, excellent coffee, and the Bacon Sarnie was out of this world.

One Latte and one large cappuccino. Latte £2.90 Cappuccino £2.50. Both tasted exactly the same, made with filter coffee with a bit of steamed milk. The large Cappuccino had approx. 30mls of coffee and half a cup of froth. Don't mind paying good money but this was awful !

We decided to eat here after checking out the menu, and are very glad we did. We both opted for the fillet steak, Herself going the whole hog and adding garlic & chilli prawns for a Surf and Turf. The fillet was perfect, cooked how we wanted it, and one of the tastiest beef steaks I have eaten. I'd say... More

I booked a large group of us in for a meal as a get together celebration and we were not disappointed. We pre-ordered our food so it was all ready and served promptly - hot and fresh. The menu choices were simple but well thought out and the quality of the food and presentation was superb. The staff were friendly... More
