So happy to have found a wonderful vegetarian restaurant!

Let me say first, I'm not vegetarian. But I do love food and get excited about great food and River Green do great food. It's tasty, it's well presented, it's the right price. I have tried other veggie restaurants and do not understand why, having made a lifestyle choice to not eat meat they have also decided to eat boring... More

Another amazing meal, Staff lovely, and welcoming. Food delicious and beautifully presented. Hubby not vegan or vegetarian but enjoyed a lovely brunch and a delicious crumble which was nearly too pretty to eat! Son was travelling back to Nottingham and took two further past favourite desserts to enjoy later.

Really enjoyed our first visit to this restaurant. Food was very tasty; staff friendly and knowledgable; relaxed atmosphere. Only regret was that I was too full to try the lovely sounding desserts......starter and main course portions are generous .....will definitely go again if opportunity arises.
