deliciosa! We thoroughly enjoyed two very tasty and hot (had to be driven from Painswick to Cheltenham) paellas for sixteen diners - one fish and one chicken, which we ordered from Olivas on Saturday 16 July 2016. Even though they were very busy indeed with a large evening order and the Painswick Street Festival the next day, they managed to cater for us too earlier in the day. I would thoroughly recommend their catering service, and the scones and olives I have bought from their very attractive deli in the beautiful back streets of Painswick on other occasions are gorgeous too. Muchos gracias!

Lovely friendly service, good coffee and yummy croissants nicely presented.
Rustic display of home made cakes and quirky mix of traditional furniture.

Had a panini and a sandwich, which were somewhat expensive but very good so worth paying for. The salad garnish was excellent and I'm not sure I've had such fresh tasting veg outside Italy or Chile. Great to see that the apple juice is (very) locally sourced. Would definitely recommend.

Stopped here for a cup of tea and cake. Both were good. The food other customers were eating (main meals) looked great.

Odd atmosphere as there appeared to be considerable tension between the owner and the young lad who was working in the front of the house. The young lad was trying hard but was struggling a bit. The owner was visibly irritated, and appeared to harangue the poor lad, worsening the situation.

I think it would have been better to keep these kind of interactions away from the customers.

Thank you for your comments
And you are right.
When orders and customers get their food delayed mixed up and delayed it can put pressure on all !!! On the day there were other matters that we don't wish to share on this site .
Glad you appreciated the quality of the food!!!
Happy reviewing
