Five years ago, Olivers was amazing. In my opinion, it was second to none for a light lunch and a cake in Sherborne. I hadn’t eaten there for a couple of years, so we took our children there for lunch. We ordered baguettes for us...More

This is a well thought out coffee house, with shared areas to eat, or private tables to the rear, which is where we sat, nice & cool on a hot day. The middle room is noisy, as it's next to the Kitchen and washing up....More

Thank you, Mike. We're very lucky to have a loyal band of customers who've stuck with us over the years as well as meeting many new faces. We hope that our local coffee and homemade cakes give us a unique selling point.

Prompt service, a wonderful selection of home made cakes, scones and sandwiches. Twinings Tea and Various coffees. A tidy loo. Pine furniture and more space at the back of the cafe. I would never consider stopping anywhere else in Sherborne. I
