We were supposed to be camping and cooking our own food, but it rained and this place was close by. A quick TripAdvisor search showed that this was the place to be and not the pub over the road, so we went for it. So glad we did. My four year old son was delighted that he'd be able to... More

I've been to this restaurant 5-6 times now. My husband and I both love it. It's friendly and well laid out and has plenty of choice. The staff have always been nice and done there job well. We sometimes dress up a bit but usually rock up on our bicycles... Either way we are made to feel welcome. Food is... More

I've eaten at River Green Cafe three times now. Each time we received a warm welcome and enjoyed the lovely friendly service. The relaxed atmosphere was great, my whole family loved it. Offering well-prepared and delicious food which simply negated any preconceptions about vegetarian cooking, the eclectic menu had something for everyone. Portions were generous and the torte was honestly... More

I have been here twice now, and the food has been great, apart from the burgers which have been mediocre to be honest. The decor is fine, the staff are very friendly and keep the place ticking away with a smile. The menu is good and it's in a lovely location. The burgers are not that great so I won't... More

Replace the varnished pine with stripped oak and please loose the 80's fanned paper napkins! It could be so nice but the ambiance and the menu is all wrong in my opinion. With only two things on the lunch menu (both spicy) and nothing for breakfast, why even bother opening during the day? Went in for lunch, had a coffee... More

Hi there thanks for taking the time to give us your views on River Green. We are sorry you don’t like our décor and ambiance, most of our visitors are very positive about the atmosphere we have created. We will however look at the lunch time specials that are available, as you should have more choice than two spicy dishes.... More

Visited for the first time last Friday as partner working in the area. Menu offered great choice and specials board made us spoilt for choice. Staff very friendly and helpful. Food was amazing although we could only manage a starter and main course. Next time we will opt for main and desert as deserts being served to other diners looked... More

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
