The delightful Olive Tree coffee house and bistro occupies a delightful location overlooking Bude Canal in this historic seaside town. A beautiful stone building houses the spacious rustic style dining room with white painted brick walls, wooden beams and traditional pine furniture. A comfortable conservatory provides further seating. The outside patio area sits alongside the water’s edge and is a most attractive sight with its colourful sun shades and flower troughs making it the perfect spot to relax and admire the view during the warmer months. Dogs are welcome outside too.
