A Rare Gem

Who says vegetarian food is dull and boring? Well they have obviously not been to this super restaurant - the food, staff and atmosphere was excellent. If I had to criticize anything it would be the difficulty in parking, but worth a walk.

Had sunday lunch. Nice surroundings and ambience. Food excellent, service too. 3 of us had 2 courses each, with wine, all for less than £60 - bargain! Would recommend and I'm not even a veggie!

I visited this restaurant on an early weekday evening over a year ago, and the food and service were great. We went again last night and although we had a lovely time due to the company of our family, the food and service left much to be desired. The service was pleasant but slow to the point of being neglectful.... More

Our first experience of this restaurant having found it on here and heard about it from a couple of friends and it won't be our last. The food was excellent and beautifully presented.

The funky décor and youthful, upbeat staff provide a warm welcome the minute you set foot through the door. If theres a largish party of you, seating at the circular sofa-lined table with its black and lime green cushions is a must (my six year old was impressed to be allowed to "veg out and eat on soft seating", and...

Talked into going here by friends, but found the food ok for a carnivore. Starter was fine, main course of mushroom and sun dried tomato wrapped in puff pastry was ok but far too much greasy pastry. Everybody raved about the sweets. Service was good and friendly. I would think if you are a vegetarian, you would be very pleased... More

We have visited River Green once before and it was excellent so maybe we had high expectations today. Eating out is a luxury for us with three kids and a bit of travel as there are no vegetarian restaurants near us in Oulton broad. Today we begrudged the money spent. Maybe it was where we were sat-we could see the... More
