I'm a vegan and it was so nice to find such a nice vegetarian restaurant, it's in a lovely quaint area and the staff were really accommodating. I had the mushroom Wellington which was lovely, my partner had the lentil, carrot and coriander burger which he wasn't as keen on. I'd love to go back if I were in the... More

The food here was delicious! Tasted really fresh and full of lovely flavours. The desserts were to die for. The staff were friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed. If I lived in Norfolk I'd definitely be a regular.

I love this place!!!! The menu is really varied, the food is delicious and the service is fantastic. All the staff are really friendly and know the menu well so they can give advice on the dishes they serve. My favourite is the mushroom & red wine wellington/pie. They also do amazing chips! The all day breakfast is also a... More

My wife and I booked a table at this restaurant with a view to enjoying a quiet romantic meal on our wedding anniversary. My African sweet potato stew was pretty obviously a pre-prepared frozen ready meal consisting of a sweet potato mush with limp but stringy baby sweet corn and rubbery mange tout peas. The crispy potato cubes on top... More

Me and my other half decided to dine here with my mother for a late mother's day dinner. My mother is a vegan and gluten free and had no problem choosing her meal! ( This makes a refreshing change) me being a vegetarian had no problem choosing and my other half who is a meat eater also found dishes that... More

Had a prize meal lunchtime and couldn't fault it..or the attention by the staff..I would recommend eating here to anyone....The sweet potato and coconut soup was delicious..followed by baked Camembert with fries. This is the second time we have been here and both times we thoroughly enjoyed the experience .

Very disappointed with this dining experience :-( I was really looking forward to visiting the River Green Cafe especially after reading the glowing reviews on here. But what a let down. The menu was unoriginal - veggie food can be so exciting and delicious but this was boring and bland. And overpriced for the quality. And the food was clearly... More

This vegetarian / vegan restaurant is a little gem in Norwich. Situated just minutes outside the city centre, you'll find it on the high street in the pretty village of Trowse. The restaurant has it's own relaxing atmosphere and the food is amazing. I always leave feeling I have had a real treat. The food is fresh and wholesome and... More

Moved to the village recently and thought it was about time we tried River Green. We really enjoyed our meals, I had stuffed red peppers and my partner had spicy buritto, both lovely. Our deserts were equally fab, lemon sundae and from the specials an apple crumble, which was probably the best I've had, a nutty crumble which was so... More

Sorry. You've probably guessed this isn't going to be a glowing review of the River Green. First off: I love vegetarian food. I have absolutely no problem giving meat a miss. I first ate at the River Green shortly after it opened. There was a buzz about the place and the menu, space and location were all good. The food... More
