This was our first time there, and we shall certainly be back - often. My partner and I split a bowl of nachos layered with tomato salsa and cheese. Mildly spicy salsa and bold cheese, made for a delicious dish. We followed with a mushroom wellington - mushroom stuffed with brie/shallots wrapped in puff pastry and dredged with hollandaise sauce.... More

I'm not vegetarian, but I booked this because my wife is and we've eaten before at the Red Lion in Great Bricett (which is linked to the River Green). I had the mushroom wellington with perfectly cooked carrots and broccoli and a great potato gratin. My wife had the burrito with salad and sweet potato wedges. Both meals were delicious,... More

I went to this restaurant with my husband last Thursday evening. I'm a vegetarian, he isn't, but he was the one who chose it. How unusual for me to go to a restaurant and not know what to pick because there was too much choice! I chose the burrito's and they were delicious, they came with sweet potato chips, a... More

A party of four of us visited lunchtime for our anniversary meal. Three of the party weren't vegetarians but we ALL enjoyed the meal.Lovely for THIS veggie to have a meal without worrying if it had touched meat.. This is the third time my husband and myself have eaten thete and it won't be the last..Thank you River green Cafe.

Having wanted to visit for a while, finally managed to recently, all I can say is it was ok not good but edible . Have given 3 stars as there wasn't an option for 2.5 and thought it was a it too mean to give 2. The menu is very dull and tastes like there is no love in it... More

five at a birthday celebration. Food excellent as before with very generous portions. The nachos as a starter is a a meal in itself. Perhaps next time two courses instead of three! The specials were especially appreciated. The beers are also good. Already booked for Christmas - seven of us this time and looking forward to it.

Seven of us had Sunday lunch . The atmosphere is lovely and the staff polite. Unfortunately the food was poor and slow to arrive. I had a baked butternut squash with goats cheese - sadly all it was was a butternut squash cut in half with a piece of goats cheese over the top of the seed area. The butternut... More

I organised for myself and 18 others (only 5 were vegetarian!!) to visit this restaurant (should have been 19, but one had to cancel at the last minute). Although we only ordered when we arrived, our starters were served fairly quickly and all commented on how tasty they were. Our main meals were again delicious and very filling, so much... More

We made a real effort to get to this restauraunt, taking the time to walk out from the centre of Norwich. First impressions were good and the room was bright and cheerful. This is in total contrast to the food. The menu should act as a warning sign, looking as it does like something from Cranks in the early 1970's.... More
