I went into the black olive last minute to get a hamper for someone who was leaving at work. The girls were very attentive and helped me pick a beautiful hamper. The prices aren't cheap but the quality is good and i love it! You can buy a glass bottle and fill it up with balsamic and once you've finished... More

Very friendly staff. Lovely food. The cafe itself is small but makes for a cosy friendly atmosphere. The Black Olive also has a shop attached with plenty of cheeses, pates, different breads and other yummy goodies for you to purchase.

My wife recommended we come to this place as she said the cheese on toast was to die for. She wasn't wrong. it was fantastic! Only real negative about this place is that there is not much seating inside. If only the Tardis was real eh!

This deli is an excellent charming place to either grab a quick sandwich, or take your time and eat the best quality food at a slower place. You will never be hassled. The food is consistently great. The team also have a cheerful buzz. Horbury is a great place for a wander about. If you do visit, I'd also recommend... More
