Olive Tree Restaurant Bude

Picture yourself sitting on the banks of a Cornish Canal, warm rays of sunshine and a plate of fine local food in front of you, and you’ve just placed yourself at the Olive Tree. This cafe-bistro is perfectly situated, overlooking Bude Canal, making it a must-visit for alfresco dining in Cornwall. Walker’s, visitors and locals stop for Coffees, Cakes, Proper Burgers, Brunch, Light lunch, Salads or A little or a Lot from our Day Menu, while admiring the view.

Come evening, Olive Tree transforms into an atmospheric restaurant. Its charming interior is spacious yet cosy; it is gently lit and the soft background music makes it a place perfect for couples to cosy up in and sample the delicious food and diverse selection of wines. A team of local chefs cook up a storm, creating an evening menu using ingredients from as close to their doorstep as possible.
