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. The food was to die for, there was such a lovely atmosphere and the service was brilliant. Although there were some hiccups when... More

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

Booked the Green Room for a family lunch for 17 adults, who live across Essex, Wales and Norwich. Never been before and got the information from the web, on the off chance. Fantastic! Service, food and wine all really good. We were made so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Great value for money. We are looking to do... More

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... 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
