We have visited the Olive Tree many times for coffee and cake - it's always been splendid sitting outside in the sun watching the world go by.

The coffee is very good - very professional! The food is excellent and you can choose a small or big plate. You can add extras to any of the meals. Puddings are good too! It can get a bit noisy but that would be the only drawback.

Brilliant scones and tea. The scones are huge! The harissa hummus was amazing with the bread. A great place for a snack or lunch and a lovely interior with comfy chairs. Definitely worth a visit!

As a muslim couple, we were limited to what food we could eat. We tried the fish goujons and chips and was impressed. Friendly staff and were happy to help.

Staff very welcoming and pleasant. We had a delicious lunch of garlic and chilli king prawns served with crusty bread and a large cheese and ham ploughman's. I couldn't resist a scone for dessert. It was so light and tasty served with a generous portion of jam and clotted cream. Yum yum!
