Nice ambiance, vegan options available.

A party of four of us went to this restaurant for Sunday lunch for the first time. There's a disable parking bay right outside the front door which was useful.

This was a last minute booking as all other restaurants could not accommodate us at our preferred time. Welcome and service was perfect the food was disappointing, I ordered Brie chicken with salad an flat bread. I actually received a plain poached chicken breast with a wrap filled with salad an cold brie, hardly a main course. The razor clams... More

I was taken to the Green Room for my birthday dinner. We were greeted quickly when we first arrived and taken to our table. All staff were very polite and made us feel very welcome. The menu appeared to be seasonal but still plenty to choose from. When the food arrived, it was cooked extremely well and tasted wonderful. The... More

Contained within the hotel we stayed in, the restaurant was excellent & we were lucky enough with the weather to sit outside for lunch & breakfast.

Had my hen do back in March with 20 friends, the waitresses were really helpful, exceptional service & we hired the back room so great atmosphere. Only trouble was the food wasn't all that great. Not sure if this was because there were so many of us. Mussels weren't cooked or opened and so had to send back and my... More

I have eaten at the Green Room frequently since it opened, and only ever had really excellent food. Having made the transition from vegetarian to vegan, I was somewhat apprehensive about the impact on eating out, a notorious problem. Whilst many Italian restaurants can usually rustle up a dairy-free but very dull pizza, some of the best food I have... More

I have been to The Green Room a number of times over the past few years and have always had a good experience so decided to invite 18 friends and family to join us there to celebrate a special birthday. From the initial planning to the final goodbye I could not have asked for better service, food or venue. We... More

With this you get a drink included, so we had a pint and a glass of rosé. All for the gran total of £20 !! Not bad for a great lunch in lovely surroundings . Will... More

We have been to the Green Room twice in the last few weeks. On both occasions we really enjoyed it. My only reservation is that on our second visit we realised that the menu choices are quite limited, I think they need to add a few extra choices. Apart from this all the staff are friendly and welcoming, the food... More
