Whilst looking for some food to take back to our apartment we came across the Black Olive Deli, and their wonderful Scotch Eggs, Quiches and Salads. They also have great pies and cheeses amongst other food stuffs. Worthwhile stopping to have a look and the food was really great.

Not the cheapest pies you will ever see.....but if you want top quality, then you have to pay. We bought one each, and with veg and mash, eating in with a bottle of Prosecco was barely £30. Could you eat out so well? I very much doubt it.

Delicious pies and all things pastry, we opted for a very tasty Quiche Lorraine which you could taste all the ingredients in (not like supermarket ones) and a Beef & Chorizo pie, which was super meaty! We also got a mixed salad of delicious giant cous cous, pasta, beetroot, which we took back to our B&B for tea. Not a... More

The food here is excellent if a little on the pricey side. If you want to put together a last minute picnic of cold meats, fish, salads and bread then it's awesome. The pies are a specialty and the sausage rolls second to none.

The pies sold here are a must for anyone. They are full of meat and never any fat/gristle inside. They are well worth the money. This deli also has a great range of pasta and cheeses which I often bring back home with us.

When in Southwold I always pop in here to top up some deli items such as olives and other little titbits. It is a brilliant little shop and I always seem to find something different.

We've used this shop a number of times and always been satified with our purchase. There's always plenty on offer for a lunchtime snack. However, it is a little overpriced and we don't like to see food ready to eat, open to the customer. But we'll be back

The range of Pieminster pies is good and all of them are the Pieminster quality but they also have some other unusual food for sale. The Apricot and almond tart is delicious.
