My daughter ate here earlier in the year and had an enjopyable evening. A couple of friends have "raved" over it , so our curiosity had been spiked ! It matters not to me if it's vegetarian as good food is good food no matter what the ingredients, so we went with an open mind.
First impressions were that the restaurant was very well laid out making good use of the space available and was clean and tidy. Front of house staff were friendly and helpful in a quirky way rather than a sterile well trained insincere way, which probably reflects the "alternative" nature of the restaurant.
The menu had plenty of choice without trying to offer as many dishes as they could squeeze onto a sheet of A4 and a specials board was also available to pick from.
The meal was delivered promptly and the chef and waiting staff seemed very relaxed and unfussed whilst still getting the job done efficiently.
The portions were of a good size and well cooked with imaginative use of the ingredients. We didn't say "Wow this is amazing" as our friends clearly did , but we were impressed by the quality, quantity and price and would happily eat there again (and probably will !) Now don't read this as a negative comment as I feel the restaurant is trying to offer something different in the overall eating experience and they are not aiming at the Michelin food market but trying to give a different atmosphere and food alternative (green credentials proudly worn), delivered in a relaxed and friendly manner and they have certainly achieved that.
Too many restaurants these days are just plastic, characterless conveyerbelt eating places and I would support anybody who tries to break that mould and offer an alternative. "Good on Ya" River Green :-)
