Yes! Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the shop provided they are kept on the lead at all times. For hygiene reasons we don't allow them inside The Olive Tree but they can enjoy the al fresco seating area just outside. You can walk through the restaurant to access this area.
Please be careful and keep a watchful eye on your dog as some of the plants we stock can be toxic to animals. This may include plants displayed in The Olive Tree garden. Dogs are welcome but are the responsibility of their owner.
Assistance dogs are welcome in The Olive Tree if their credentials can be provided.
Do you sell garden furniture?
Yes, we have more in the spring and summer months, do visit us to see the full range.
Do you sell cut flowers?
Not generally, although we do occasionally have British grown Daffodils, but we have lots of plants and a good selection of artificial flowers throughout the year.
Do you stock gas and fuel?
Yes, we stock Patio Gas and Bhutane (please note we do not sell the Propane cyclinders shown in the images below). In order to buy Calor Gas you will be asked to pay for a Cylinder Refill Agreement Process for the size of cylinder you require (or one for each size) which legally states that the cylinder always remains the property of Calor Gas. When it’s empty, you can simply exchange it for a pre-filled cylinder within the same category group, and just pay for the gas inside. Details of category groups are below.
If however, you don’t want another cylinder, you can simply return the empty one in good condition and receive a partial refund on the cost of the refill agreement, which is worked out on a sliding scale.
|Up to a year old||70%|
|More than 7 years||25%|
