Welcome to The Olive Tree!

January 2021: we are taking a break from the takeaway service for now.  We will keep things under review and any updates will be posted here. Take care, everyone x 


We have taken the decision not to reopen fully for the time being.  The cost and complexity of making the inside of our restaurant fully Covid-compliant and operating at such a significantly reduced capacity simply does not make financial sense for our business. 

We will continue to operate the takeaway service of meals to heat at home for the foreseeable future.  We can manage this operation safely and it has proved to be more successful than we could have hoped.  We feel very lucky to have so many loyal customers who have been so supportive since we started this service in May and they have truly helped us to keep our business afloat. Indeed, we know that many of those customers are still unwilling to return to eating in restaurants, so we hope this will come as welcome news to them!

We’re hoping that this decision will enable us to get through the rest of this year and be in a position to start again whenever we are able to. 

Stay safe & well, everyone, and thanks to you all for your support.

We are all in the same storm, just in different boats.

Much love,

Flo & Kevin

We are a small informal restaurant, now in our 10th year,  serving simple  but delicious food in relaxed surroundings. 

With much of our inspiration coming from the Mediterranean,  our seasonal menu takes advantage of  the fantastic selection of fish & seafood, meat, fruit & vegetables available in Cornwall. 

There's only one sitting, so the table is yours for as long as you want it, leaving you to relax & enjoy your evening.

Reservation times are staggered through the evening to allow a smooth service, so if you want to eat at a particular time, we recommend you book in advance.   


We look forward to seeing you soon!
