Well thought out, tasty menu

We brought 2 friends from Sheffield here last week (who aren't vegetarian) and they loved it. The menu is really well thought out and the food tastes delicious. We had 2 sharing starters between 4 of us which were huge and great value at I think around £7. We all had a main, I had the mushroom... read more

My wife and I are not vegetarians, but my brother and wife are, so we dined here twice at their suggestion. We received a warm welcome, the service was excellent, and the food was inventive, varied, used ideas from cuisines of many countries, and was also good value. On the first visit my main was not as tasty as I'd... More

…and hello to really tasty dishes. I highly recommend the butterbean, lemon and sage soup, delicious. You will not be disappointed with the 'special' vegetable stew either. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, quality food at a reasonable price; the River Green Cafe has it all. This was the first of many visits for me!

We are currently visiting relatives in Upper Stoke Holy Cross and they treated us to a lunchtime meal at the River Green Cafe. Superb, imaginative choice of starters and mains courses. Unfortunately we didn't have room for a sweet. The food was very tasty and fresh ingredients, with vegan options available on what appeared to be most courses. Lovely location... More

Service, environment and food excellent. Brilliant choices always available. This was a lunch get together and the service and food were very quick which was very valuable at a lunchtime.

Excellent range of full dishes and light bites. Enjoyed the meals every time we have visited. Real beer in bottles. We take the dog for a walk round the nearby lake.If it's winter or autumn and cool enough we will leave him in the shade in the car and go to lunch. So for this visit the dog was at... More

What a really great place to eat tasty and imaginative veggie food. Excellent friendly staff, really good fresh food, great location overlooking the green. This must be the best veggie restaurant I have eaten in in England. There is just one minor niggle and that is the parking. The restaurant is in a highly populated residential area and has no...

Had a really lovely lunch today with friends. All the food was delicious - fantastic dahl, real italian mozzarella, lovely fresh bread. Staff were smiling, efficient and helpful. Great location overlooking the village green - will definitely go back next time I'm in Norwich!

I am the only vegetarian in my family so it takes a lot to persuade my family to enjoy vegetarian food, and they loved it! The food is so fresh and absolutely delicious. Also there's a ride rage of cultures in the food, giving a great wide selection of choice. Not to mention the delicious chocolate and salted caramel torte... More

Visited for a family meal today and it was absolutely excellent in every way. The service was great, the food delicious and beautifully presented (especially the desserts.) I cannot recommend highly enough, even the non veggies loved it! The restaurant is light, comfortable and spacious so ideal for family groups or larger parties. Lovely location overlooking the green too. In... More
