We have eaten here before but not for lunch. We decided on the scallops for starter. Very small scallops, wouldn't have ordered if we thought they were going to be that size. Then had a ploughmans ( posh ploughmans) it made up for the disappointing starter, and the smoked mackerel salad. It was lovely ( would have preferred more horseradish... More

Deep fried feta was lovely clearly quality ingredients. We sat in the new conservatory area which felt more suited to daytime than the main restaurant. The new garden area is being developed an...

We have visited many The Green Room restaurant many times in the past and never been disappointed, which is why we chose this venue to celebrate our wedding with 30ish of our guests. It is refreshing that we were not charged a penny to hire the function room behind the conservatory, and just paid for the food and drink consumed.... More

I have been once with my partner previously and the food was excellent. They catered for my allergies and the service was great, so I had no hesitation to book a Christmas meal with my friends there.

My first time at The Green Room having walked past it about a gazillion times. It always looks really cosy and chic from the outside. We had a cocktail before dinner meaning we weren't seated til gone 9pm (our fault) and I assume the restaurant was full as we were seated in the conservatory which looked and felt a bit... More
