Great location and great value

I had a quick lunch in this lovely cafe bar. The staff were friendly and knowledgable about the food and menu. I felt the food was well presented, fresh and good value. I really enjoyed sitting outside and watched the world go by, a nice relaxing spot for lunch

We were visiting the Birmingham Hippodrome for a matinee performance and thought we would try The Green Room for lunch. It's an ideal location, directly across from the theatre and large windows facilitate "people watching". My friend ordered meat balls and I ordered the risotto. Both dishes were disappointing. The meatballs had a "Heinz tomato" taste and the risotto was... More

A very nice bar with very friendly and efficient staff. Contacted the bar before to let them know I was bringing nearly 30 people to The Green Room. We were given some space around the corner from the bar. The food was good and everyone was satisfied and loved the venue. The bacon and cheese burger was the best burger... More

Well placed for an afternoon glass or 2 of wine before the nights festivities/theatre visit. Service was excellent from 2 members of staff. Food albeit nibbles were brill and good value too. Good selection of wines and beers. A really super place to park yourself in the summer sunshine on a busy corner to people watch too.

Was not planning on eating at green room but as they are opposite the hippodrome where I came to see a show, I decided to go there for some food. The food came super quick and at a great quality considering how quick it was. I loved the atmosphere and would most definitely come again

I am extremely shocked at some of the poor reviews. As far as I'm concerned, the food, location and atmosphere was great. I felt welcomed and the food preparation was super quick, I just about sat down when the food was delivered which was great because I was in a hurry for a show at the hippodrome. If you want...

We went to The Green Cafe and Bar prior to a show at The Hippodrome as the location was great and the food seemed more reasonably priced than some of the other places in The Arcadian area. I ordered a Halloumi & Portabello Mushroom Burger with a side salad and my partner had a Bacon Cheeseburger with chips. They bought... More

Very enjoyable, good value for money, friendly staff, nice food. Not the quickest service but fast enough for how busy they get. Will visit again.
