A quiet haven of calm with lovely food and nice staff (also a book shop and gallery)

Our first visit here after helping at an event at The Forum, very cool and pleasant sitting in the centre of the city, calm and quiet. Good choice of food and drink and really enjoyed the bookshop (nice cards too!) and gallery (upstairs).

Really enjoyed the pie and salad. Friendly and a good place to eat. Close to the centre easy to find. Will go back again soon.

We have visited several times now over the years, always had good friendly service and tasty food and a calm relaxed atmosphere and have often brought friends along with us. We came at Christmas this year after coming a few years on the trot but felt disappointed when we were told we had to pre - book the Christmas Meal... More

Had lunch at the Greenhouse today. Squash & celery soup with a choice of rye or wholemeal bread. My husband had bread & butter pudding afterwards. All was tasty & filling. The staff were friendly & welcoming. The Greenhouse is well worth visiting. In a sea of mega, faceless, boring chains it is an oasis. We will be back &... More

Despite being located near town centre, just a stones throw from city hall, the Greenhouse is one of the most peaceful places that I have eaten at in Norwich. The garden at the back is quiet, quaint and well-kept. All the food seems to have a rustic homemade feel to it, which lives up to the rural feel of the... More

This is the only place (at least the only place I know of) in Norwich where you are guaranteed 100% organic veggie/vegan food. The menu is quite limited but the food is delicious, healthy and ethical. I embrace a 'veganic' (vegan + organic) philosophy and lifestyle (for reasons of animal welfare, sustainable planet, global food security, soil and water protection,... More

I've had a few lunches here before, the nature and feel of the greenhouse itself is really relaxing! The staff are so friendlt and polite, it's a great place to grab a coffee or a resable priced slice of cake! I really recommend the salad bowels as I found there was a wide range on offer to try and it... More

Been here a few times for lunch . Food excellent, fresh tasty salad and breads. Always seems quiet- deserves more custom. Oh yes, a phone-free zone, and interesting good quality pre-owned books/CDs for sale.

I have lunch regularly at the Greenhouse and am continually impressed by the yummy food. The salads change regularly and are invariably tasty, as are the soups. At busy times, the service can be a bit slow but the staff are always friendly and helpful, and often give an indication of how long it will take for the food to... More

Lovely to find such a quiet oasis in the center of a thriving city. The courtyard garden is a hidden gem on a summer's day.
