Have this tree at the back of the garden, has a few tiny over ripe fruits and also new fruits about the size of a pomegranate seed. Inside is a pip/stone. Anyone know what it could be

It "looks like" it could be Heteromeles arbutifolia (Toyon).
Hard to tell from the photo due to insect damage on the foliage.

It does look like a match for Toyon (Heteromeles arbutifolia)

More photos for comparison:

I would agree that is a Toyon.
