What's on the menu?

Olive's Cafe

In light of the new government guidelines, we decided to close the café from the 18th of December until further notice in order to protect our customers and staff members.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you in advance for your understanding and support. As this is such a dynamic situation we are prepared to potentially revise this decision and will post on social media/ update our website with any new developments. 

Our online takeaway cafe service is still available through our website and currently has a range of essential groceries, delicious cream tea boxes, luxury dinner boxes, cakes, scones, and bakes for you to enjoy at home.


Olives Café is named after Olive Tate who co-founded the nursery with her husband Allan. Olive loved plants and her dogs that she walked in the woods every day, where she’d be looking out for her beloved kingfisher. 

Olive's granddaughters Vicky and Helen now co-run the nursery. Kate and Mandy run the kitchen, with Lois and Karen generally assisting them to make things run smoothly. We are a small team who pride ourselves on excellent customer service and ensuring that you have a relaxing and safe visit.
