Meet the Team

Owner/Head Chef Sam Bevan

With over 15 years of experience in the kitchen, Sam has perfected many cuisines across the globe. Starting off in an authentic Italian restaurant, he then moved on to classic French cooking, followed by a number of years as head chef in a proper British pub.

Sam has now found his way back to cooking the Mediterranean way, where he has really found his calling. This has enabled him to use his abundance of skills to fuse together his passion for using local produce with inspiration gained from tasting food in Morocco and Barcelona.

Sam's aim is to show people how diverse tapas can be and that it's not something to be afraid of. The variety of dishes he has to offer means that dining at the Olive Tree is something that can be experienced and enjoyed by all!

Aside from this, Sam is partial to a pint of Ale or two so makes sure we have some of the best local ales for your enjoyment.
