Visited (for the second time) recently. Enjoyed a nice lunch . Staff were very friendly. Service wasn't lightning fast, but we weren't in a hurry. Food was very good, presented thoughtfully. After lunch we had some very good coffee (and I'm fussy about my coffee!).

By the way, get there early if you want to try the local speciality - Panhaggerty. It's great, but I got the last portion at 1230.

We will definitely visit again.

Visited on pur way through this nice town taking advantage of the free parking and in need of refreshment. The olive branch was warmly welcoming and the tea and tea cake was both quickly delivered and tasted lovely. Excellent value and so all round highly recommended. Even free wifi!!

We regularly enjoy fantastic food at The Olive Branch (and formerly The Black Olive) and have been bringing our children here for a number of years. The coffee is great, the menu is diverse, the owner is friendly and enthusiastic about the food and is attentive at all times. Our kids love the small quiz cards that are on each table! We will continue to enjoy good food, drink, atmosphere and service here.

The Olive Tree is a warm, welcoming little coffee shop just off the market place. It is a good place to watch the world go by, and offers delicious Mediterranean food, with several veggie options. ck!Well worth a visit if you are in Alnwi

Went here on the basis of other reviews and wasn't disappointed. Menu is heavily but not exclusively veggie, and definitely inventive - my wife had sweet peppers stuffed with vegetable bhaji topped with salsa and mozzarella, and I'm informed it was great. Two others had a perfectly good chilli, and the 4-year old demolished most of a large orange cake...
