This was in a large pot in the garden when we moved house this year in June. It is about 4 ft tall/wide, has dark green glossy oval leave up to 2 inches long which look as though they might be evergreen?, and quite a chunky mid brown trunk. There are just a few tiny purple berries. It looked a bit sorry for itself and we cut back/removed a few branches but it has grown new leaves. Any ideas?

A form of honeysuckle, maybe ?

Thanks for the suggestion, I'm thinking it may be a type of laurel.

Looks like a form of Laurel, possibly a bay?

Thanks, definitely not Bay (the leaves aren't scented), but I think it could be a laurel - maybe prunus laurocerasus or prunus lucitanica. I think it needs a little TLC and then we'll see if the flowers are a clue next Spring!
