It was really good they managed to accomodate us in busy times. Food was very good a lot of vegetarian options included and it did arrive quite quickly, however service lacked speed towards the end and we were not asked if we want any desert or some more drinks and we were forced to ask for a bill after waiting for 15 min with dirty plates. I would definitely recommend for food, overall experience may vary depends on who is serving you.

Enjoyable early evening meal. Staff very friendly and huge portions if you copse 'large' options. Certainly good family destination but bit brightly lit and plain decor if you're looking for a more romantic dining options.

We came last year and loved the feel of the place along with the menu and food. Came back this year to find the menu was so small with very little choice for main meals apart from burgers and pasta. Had a brunch menu feel. Only had 1 special on board, and I don’t understand why you are not signed up to the eat out to help out scheme??? Which every place I have eaten out this week in Bude and surrounding area has been??? Felt a bit pretentious and snooty this year too. Really disappointed as you can see.

Unfortunately we didn’t get to eat at The Olive Tree last night. After making a reservation, we were seated at a tiny table stuck in the corner of the restaurant, then forgotten about. No information regarding ordering from our table, no info full stop We waited quite some time before walking out! The atmosphere was non existent, the menu was very limited and the service was simply awful. Such a shame and such a disappointment!

Food was lovely We sat inside so there wasn’t much atmosphere would have been preferred to have sat outside but as we had booked prior to our visit we didn’t get the option Only one problem prawn linguine full of garlic so much so that my husband had to sift through he’s food to put on the side of the bowl . To be fair though this was deducted from our bill after we asked , as it was clearly visible how much had been put on the dish

Visited here on the first night of our trip to Bude after booking online. The precautions put in place in terms of Covid-19 seemed well thought out. My mum had the venison special which was really delicious, as was the pulled jackfruit burger from the normal menu. The portions were a bit big for us.

We were recommended the olive tree by friends and we’re not disappointed, booked online well in advance. We were greeted by friendly staff and had some amazing food . Lobster specials and fish followed by brownies and ice cream. Would definitely recommend to friends. What a lovely place just by the canal you can sit inside or enjoy the evening sun outside. We’ll be back again soon xx

No atmosphere inside. Had to wait far too long to even have a drink. 40 minutes for food. £14 for fish and chips with very small fish and mostly batter Very little service thus no tip left Wouldn’t go again or maybe sit outside

We had a lovely meal and the service was very good, all the staff were friendly and the social distancing measures were good. The lemon sole from the specials board was extremely nice, and my daughter really enjoyed her chicken and bacon burger. An excellent family restaurant, would recommend to anyone eating out in Bude.

The burger wasn’t good, neither of my sons could even eat half of it as it was dry and unappetising. Service was poor, waitresses continually walked passed us even though we obviously wanted something and after waiting almost 10 minutes to pay our bill I ended up giving up and going to the bar to pay
