After a bracing 8 mile walk we dropped in for drinks and a snack I had Cheesey Chips and my Wife had Hummus with bread. Both snacks were great tasting and were good quality with generous helpings. The staff were exceptional and friendly. So many of these places in tourist areas are poor quality and value there was no way... More

We've stayed in Bude twice in the last couple of months and eaten at the Olive Tree twice in the evenings. (There is a different evening menu to daytime, but have also lunched here a few times and it's good). Lovely atmosphere, spacious, excellent service. Good, relatively simple food choices, beautifully done, particularly the duck breast last time. And, even... More

Stopped here for coffee several times. As the weather was good and we had the dogs, we sat in the garden. Quite sheltered under trees. Staff polite and very friendly. Great cakes as well.

Another visit to Bude and the Olive Tree continues to be one of the best restaurants/coffee houses in Bude. Coffee is great and the choice of cream tea or cake selection is always very good.

This cafe has pretensions of grandeur serving extremely overpriced food that does not represent good value at all - I had a fish basket which contained 2 prawns and about 5 other teeny fish portions all for £8! I'd have been better off with some good honest fish and chips - talk about ripping off the tourists!

Just had coffee & cakes but had to review as both were delicious. We sat outside in the sunshine but inside looked inviting. Staff were pleasant & efficient.

Very pleasant setting for outside dining. Good menu selection. The cookies not great though, very dry and tasteless. Recently ate lunch here with family and was very good.
