Can anyone help, I'm a complete novice to gardening and this plant was already in our garden when we move in . We have no idea what this plant is!
We have pets and children around so want to know if the berries are poisonous plus in how to look after it in general. Many thanks!

Many thanks!

Did you notice if the the flowers were scented - if so could be sweet box. You'd need to check if the berries are poisonous but suspect not.

It does look like sweet box - or Sarcococcus. Look that up to see if the berries are poisonous.
