“Excellent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

Visited lunchtime today after going to corfe castle. Found the bistro to be spotlessly clean. The owner was serving and was very friendly and polite. I had a blt and my wife had a mushroom and cheese crossant. Well i have never had anything like it. It was an open sandwich presented woth salad aswas my wifes. They were meals in themselves and very good indeed. This bistro is very well worth a visit and if we are in the village again will return. Well done.

“Lovely lunch and friendly staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

I visited here a few weeks ago with some friends, the restaurant was spotless and clean! The toilets smelt amazing!! My friends had a toddler with them and commented that the high hair was the cleanest they had ever seen. We had sandwiches for lunch, the price and portion size were spot on, one of the best crab sandwiches I've ever eaten! We were also naughty and had a cream tea which was also lovely. All the staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Will definitely be visiting again!

“Great service, great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Highly recommended. Feels like it's run by people who actually care about service and the food. We had a light lunch inside but the outside tables would be great too (we'd had a touch too much sun already cycling up to the castle...). All in, a great find.

“Cream Tea”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2014

A delicious homemade scone, served warm with clotted cream and tasty strawberry jam, yummy. A pot of tea plus jug of boiled water, ample to have at least 4 cups brewed as you would like. I like mine strong, as there were 2tea bags it was plenty strong enough.
Very clean and welcoming, friendly staff
We will return on our next visit to Swanage.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Olivers. Glad you enjoyed the coffee, we opened our doors for a day last year and the visitors to the village and all our local friends and neighbours chose it from a blind taste test. The fact most people chose it and it's Fairtrade was a brilliant result for us. Can't take credit for the view I'm afraid, that's just as it's been for hundreds of years and we count ourselves privileged to have it. Glad you got to share it for the afternoon. Thanks again Leigh
