We took the family to The Green Door for a birthday celebration. As usual, the food was excellent, a good choice, well presented and a delicious flavour. The crab soup, scallops etc. for starter was superb. For mains we had the surf and turf, slow cooked lamb, beef casserole etc. Everyone really enjoyed their choice. The amuse bouche and sorbet...

A domestic restaurant in the living room with six tables in solid oak and heavy black leather chairs feels a bit oppressive. Mark Pulman chef and owner was also serving our meals. I had scallops with pancetta and cauliflower puree which was very good. For the main course I had wild mushroom tagliatelli including morels with shaved parmisan. The sauce... More

Dined here as we headed back from holidaying in Exmouth. Heard many good things about this place and to be fair the food (when it arrived) was really tasty, although a little on the small side. I had the catch of the day and the creme brulee to finish. The main issue was how long the service took, it was... More

We visited the Green Door restaurant as a party of eight on Friday 2nd May 2014. We were greeted by a pleasant but inexperience young man and shown to a basic waiting area for twenty minutes since our table was not ready. The choice of beer was limited to an obscure bottled variety. Our initial reservations were soon dispelled by... More

We are a group of friends who eat out at local restaurants on a regular basis and this was our first, and last, visit to the Green Door. On our arrival we were ushered into a railway carriage style " holding area" until our table was ready and to order drinks. The availability of any variety of drinks was so... More

Ate dinner on Saturday 26th April. Mark the Owner/chef was not on duty, but we need not have worried. Heidi, the waitress on duty (its not very big!), served us excellently: Not a stuffy atmosphere and great food. My wife loved her plaice, and the desserts were very good: some unexpected touches such as an original amuse-bouche after taking our... More

This place is an absolute gem. My wife and I visit regularly. It is clean and welcoming. The service is friendly but not remotely stuffy. Mark runs the place superbly. His food is absolutely fantastic. So tasty and always beautifully prepared. The wines are good too. The quality of this place is first class. We have eaten in a lot... More

The Green Door at Woodbury provides the opportunity for diners to experience what is probably the best food in the locality. This little gem of a restaurant only seats about 20, with a further small room capable of providing private dining for a further 8. The quality of the food is excellent and, as all food is cooked freshly from... More

I have driven past this restaurant for many years, having had a terrible meal with the previous owner. I recently took notice of a recommendation by a neighbour and booked a table for myself and my daughter. I am so glad I did! The welcome was warm and friendly, the food was faultless reflecting Mark's passion for high-quality local ingredients... More
