Restaurant - Italian

The Wild Olive

The Wild Olive


Located in the village of Gosforth, a minutes walk from the car park, The Wild Olive is a cafe through the day and a restaurant by night serving rustic Italian food with pizzas and breads cooked in our authentic wood burning pizza oven. It provides a relaxed, friendly atmosphere and welcomes families and groups, as well as providing a venue for business lunches or a quick coffee.
We have a separate playroom so parents can relax while the children are occupied, but not disturbing the other customers. An outdoor seating area provides a wonderful little suntrap in the summer and overlooks the new public play area.

Speciality: Rustic Italian

Chef: Nick Putnam
