Olive Wood is a very rare, hard-wearing wood, recognised by its beautiful grain and natural patterning. Olive Wood will last a lifetime if it is properly looked after. Our olive wood products are ethically produced under good working conditions. No living trees are destroyed to make these products, only branches which no longer produce fruit are used. New trees are continually being planted to replace those used to produce these products
We have extended our range of fine wines, by bringing in a broad range of the very best international wines.
All our wines are available to buy in the deli and for a £3 corkage charge any of our wines can also be bought by the bottle to drink in the café.

Cheese Wedding Cakes
If you’re looking for something a little bit different to help bring your wedding breakfast to a close, then why not try a Cheese Wedding Cake. Let us know the number of guests you’re catering for, and whether you’re providing Fruit Cake as well, and we’ll work out the correct proportions of cheese you need. Just like a traditional wedding cake, the cheese will be tiered using whole truckles, from large up to small, for you to decorate with anything from hanging grapes, fresh figs, or simply a scattering of rose petals. We can also provide artisan biscuits and chutneys as well as an accompanying wine or alternative beverage to match the occasion.

When Sylvie, our deli manager at the time, gave us a Christmas Card that showed the deli and arch way in a beautiful snowy scene, we decided to contact the artist, Abigail McDougall, to see if we could feature the art work in the café. I’m delighted to say Abigail agreed and we now many of her beautiful pictures in the café as well as her cards in the deli.
We have added another local artist to our wall, namely Fiona Willis and her uplifting illustrations.
Fiona lives in Cliftonwood and you can see the inspiration in many of her designs. As well as five of Fiona’s illustrations in the cafe we also have a wide range of her cards available in the deli.
