My partner and I ate here recently and were, unfortunately, quite under-whelmed by the food. The menu was reasonably extensive and, if the food had been memorable for all the right reasons, the prices were quite good. The staff were friendly and the place was rustic and looked very clean. We both ordered fish and chips, which arrived with mushy... More

The one star is for the staff who were lovely How do you ruin a haloumi salad - by adding sour yoghurt to lumps of cabbage that's how How do you ruin the kids lunch - by serving them undercooked burgers and sad fries Will not be returning until they get a new chef

Hi David, I'm really sorry you didn't enjoy your lunch. This is unusual for us and we take all feedback seriously. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the halloumi. It wasn't listed on the board as a salad but a starter and had a good response through the week. I would have happily changed it for you for one of our... More

Had a great meal here before going to a show at the Floral Pavilion. Friendly welcome, good service and tasty, home-made food. So much better than the soulless places near the Light Cinema. Well worth the walk up the hill!

Leanne W, Owner at The Olive Tree Bistro, responded to this review

Thanks for taking the time to review us. Your feedback means a lot. We are going from strength to strength with Sunday service and often sell out of roast dinners so if you are coming in the future you can reserve them on the day to make sure you don't miss out. Hope to see you soon Leanne More

We ate dinner here before heading to a ferry terminal. They also do pre-theatre meals. There is a la carte and a specials menu. It is small with only a few tables so best to book. Our starters were great, the wait for our main course was a little too long. Wines are very reasonably priced. We did not have... More

Called in for breakfast and waited over 30 minutes,despite it being quiet. Wife ordered a veggie one and came without sausages (x2) and when it arrived we were informed they had ran out of sausage! My poached egg looked like it had been in the water for 30 seconds the White was all sloppy. Wouldn't recommend

Always a pleasant atmosphere here and food is excellent for a small corner restaurant. Specials board changed frequently and the staff are very helpful with any food requests. Only about ten tables so advised to book, but well worth a visit.
