Disappointing

I have eaten here many times in the past and have always had an ok meal. The service is pretty slow but we always go back as the food is usually good. Tonight we visited as a party of six for my dad's birthday and the restaurant was very quiet. We waited ages for our main courses and had to... read more

35 of us descended on the Green Room last night. The service was first class, the food superb. I had Torbay sole as my main and it was absolutely delicious. This was my first visit to the Green Room, but it will definitely not be my last!

I held my significant birthday here in the function room. The food was excellent and exceptionally good value particularly as it was Christmas. The staff were so helpful and extremely welcoming and accommodating. We stayed overnight in the hotel which was also excellent value and a lovely comfortable room. It all made for a memorable birthday treat for me.

We had lunch at the Green Room on Sunday with our family. The food, service and ambiance was very good. The only problem was that the fish cake starter was very tasty but not as hot as it might have been. This was mentioned to the staff and without any further comment, when the bill arrived, the two plates had... More

We went with my sister and husband to celebrate their golden wedding anniversary. My husband and I had been to the restaurant earlier in the afternoon to deliver sprinkles and a helium balloon for the table. Unfortunately although we were the only booking at 6.30 the balloon and sprinkles were put on another table so the surprise was lost as... More

I visited here with my parents quite a while ago and have been meaning to review. We waited in the reception area for quite some time before anyone realised we were waiting for a table, someone whizzed past us and said "I don't have time at this minute sorry!" at this point we should have walked out as they were...

My wife and I went here on a Saturday evening and were delighted with the whole experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. The restaurant has a very relaxing atmosphere and the bistro-style food was superb – my wife is a very strict vegetarian and had a good choice on the menu.

Ten of us went to the Green room just before Christmas and I was a little wary as I had heard mixed reviews . I think the online photos were not very complementary it made the place look as though it was lacking atmosphere. I was very pleasantly surprised, our table was good and you didn't feel as though the... More
