Excellent menu choices with daily specials. Friendly waiting staff (mostly, 1 appeared somewhat grumpy). Service was a little on the slow side but we were in no hurry so didn't matter. We opted for a selection of starters to share which was a good way of sampling a wide variety of dishes.

We were looking for somewhere to have Sunday lunch as a family (visiting my vegetarian daughter who's at UEA) and a quick scan through trip advisor pointed us to this lovely restaurant who were able to fit us in on a busy Sunday lunch schedule. And what a find it was too. Lovely homely feel inside and friendly staff. As... More

Pleasantly surprised by the variety of the menu (much more than the usual mushroom risotto and goat cheese based dishes!), which had some nice unusual options. Everything tasted very good and looked very healthy. The restaurant is a good size and staff very friendly. Definitely recommend it and worth the short trip out of town. There were no issues finding... More

This was our first visit to a vegetarian restaurant - the menu was varied and extensive ; the desserts are to die for!A light and airy restaurant in pleasant surroundings overlooking the green. We will be back!

Really enjoyed being here today, lunch was great especially the crumble - lush! The staff were attentive and efficient, the atmosphere was great - the only slight niggle I had was parking - sureley the pub across the road would be willing to rent out a couple of spots to you apart from that no complaints what so ever so...

Had veg breakfast there, which is delicious! Most importantly it looks very healthy. Although it is not cheap, you pay for the quality. Open kitchen is very clean. Lovely coffee too!

Proof in a restaurant/cafe that meals without meat seen to be made with my love and thought. This was our instant choice for valentines night this year and we knew we couldn't go wrong based on our previous visits. The setting is lovely. We are always comfortable at River Green. The service has always been efficient and friendly and the... More

This is a quite brilliant vegetarian restaurant. My husband, a committed omnivore, loved it! We had lunch there on 15th February (a slightly late Valentine's Day celebration). The service is good, the restaurant bright and cheerful and the menu mouth-watering! We also thought the price very reasonable since we both had three courses and I had a large glass of... More

I have eaten twice in January at the River Green, both times excellent. Very good choice of food, all freshly prepared, reasonable prices. I was given a complimentary bottle of house red as it was my birthday - a good wine which we enjoyed.

So impressed with the River Green Cafe, excellent choice, quality, service & value for money. I went with a non vegetarian who also thoroughly enjoyed their meal & I, as the vegetarian in the couple, can't fault the vast choice and quality of the food, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend and will be returning soon.

Thank Rebecca T
