“YET AGAIN EXCELLENT FOOD WELL PRESENTED”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2011

I visited the Bowling Green again to see if it had changed. No it hasen't the food is very good value for money. A family run restaurant with very quick service. The chips are all hand cut from real potatoes not your frozen ones you get in most places. Salad was fresh and not from a bag. Steak I had was medium rare exactly as I asked for. My wife asked for something that was not on the menu! Although it was busy it was not to much trouble. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you want good honest home cooked fresh food at a resonable price. Dont take my word for it give it a go.

“Good steak, shame about the trimmings”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011

Had a 12oz fillet steak. Ordered rare, arrived medium rare. Chips fresh from the freezer. Side salad out of a tescos salad bag. The quality of the meat was exceptional, but the rest was poor value for money. Wont be going back.

“First class food from a real family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2011

I have used the Bowling Grreen on many occasions and have never been dissapointed. The food is all cooked fresh by the owner and served by his wife. All meats are sourced locally and cooked to perfection. You wont get better value for money anywhere local. Bookings advisable at weekends though. I am a family man and would not hesitate to take my family for a good honest food. There is deli counter as well now which provide home cooked meats, eggs and cheeses etc. Something very new and exciting

“i've been to the bowling green lots of...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2010 via mobile

i've been to the bowling green lots of times over quite a few years . Its a typical pub with a seperate restaurant room. Every time i have been they have served hot good honest food at a great price . If you want al a carte then this is mot your place but if you want decent traditional well cooked meals then go for it . Nice and simple . Nothing too flashy and great value
