Welcome to The Olive Tree!

We are extremely sad to confirm that we will not be reopening the restaurant on 30th June as planned.


The Gov't's extension of restrictions until at least 19th July has made us accept that too much uncertainty remains for us to plan for the rest of this year with any confidence.  Trading with the current restrictions in place means that we cannot be financially viable; the cost of restocking the kitchen and restaurant after over a year of closure and getting staff back on board is a prohibitive cost without the certainty that things will indeed revert to normal in late July.


We will instead resume our takeaway meals to heat at home from 1st July.  We can manage this operation safely and efficiently and will look to expand the menu and operating times over the summer.  More information will be available shortly. 


For those of you who have reservations with us, we are truly sorry to have to cancel them and we sincerely hope you understand the position we find ourselves in.  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.


We are a small informal restaurant, now in our 11th 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!
