Quite frankly the lunch was average at best, without any hyperbole the same quality lunch would be exceeded at McDonalds. The service, like at breakfast time, was rude at best, unapologetic and dismissive at best. I'd like to say the staff dealt with complaints well,...More

You can book a table for you guests so should not be a problem. They have areas which are a bit more private and would enable an enjoyable meal.

Enjoy a relaxing coffee and cake with friends, a full breakfast, light (or hearty!) lunch, traditional Italian pizza and delicious Sunday Roast with us at The Olive Tree. For a special treat, or gift idea, try our Afternoon Tea - a selection of sandwiches, mini cakes and award-winning scones with jam and clotted cream all with a nice pot of tea, or a glass of sparkling Prosecco. Special set menus are often available for events like St Valentine's Day, Mother's Day and Christmas.
