Meet The Team

Working in the service industry, we take customer service very seriously; ensuring all our customers enjoy their visit. The Oliver’s family is a fun and diverse one, on-hand to serve you your food and drink, but also to have good natter and put smiles on everyone’s faces.

As you can see from our team bios below, we’ve taken the Oliver’s theme through to our staff. How well do you think each of us fit the character’s name we’ve been assigned?

  • Oliver Leach of Oliver's Coffee Shop and Wine Bar

    Oliver Leach "Oli"

    The Owner - Mr Bumble

    Having started his working life at the age of 17 at the Wheatsheaf Inn, Grayswood, Oli became Manager within a couple of years. An 11-year stint there was followed by eight years at Grayshott Health Spa, four of these as the Hotel General Manager.

    Oli has a real passion for the service industry, believing that first and last impressions are what count, with a warm welcome or a hearty goodbye going a long way in his trade.

    Oli demonstrated this passion when he, with the help of his dad, purchased Barista and turned it into the new-look Oliver’s. Oli’s mum is also keen to lend a hand; baking some of the delicious cakes that prove so popular with our customers. Oliver’s is a true family business.

Testimonials

Amazing. We visited Oliver’s to attend the Vietnamese food evening and it certainly did not disappoint! The food was delicious – the flavours and presentation were amazing. The staff were really friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was welcoming from the moment we walked in the door. We will definitely be back and would like to try coffee and cake this time. Nadine, Aug 19

Outstanding quality and service. To walk into an establishment CONFIDENT you will receive impeccable service time and time again is a rare thing – but I can assure you that this is certainly the case with Oliver’s. (This ain’t my first rodeo)
It is staffed by a most wonderful team who are equally as friendly and attentive as Oli himself. You feel at home from the very moment you enter the door and even on my first visit I was greeted like an old friend who hadn’t seen them in a while.
Even in busy times, service is excellent and I have never found myself waiting too long for food or drink. Andrew, Sep 19

Kids and adult favourites. This is such a great place, best in Haslemere now. Staff are so friendly and the fresh food is sublime. The kids love the milkshakes and Olly and George are brilliant hosts, always go above and beyond. Highly recommend the evening food events, top stuff. Greg, Jul 19

A must visit in Haslemere. Lovely coffee shop & wine bar offering a warm welcome & friendly service. Delicious home made cakes, pastries & sandwiches all accompanied by the best coffee in town.
Made to order breakfasts, lunch & sharing plates look amazing although not tried all of them yet! Well worth a visit if you’re in Haslemere. Jul 19

Uplifting. I popped in briefly just for an ice cream today in the extreme heat. Lovely welcoming staff. Thoroughly enjoyed the Salted Caramel Ice cream. Reasonably priced.
I spotted they do evening events, eg Greek nights etc. I believe a Book Club event as well? I intend to return for one of these evenings to enjoy & relax when I have more time. Jun 19

Awesome service, fantastic food, superb coffee, amazing atmosphere. Why wouldn’t you “shop local” over a High Street brand? David, Sep 19
