We visited the cafe at lunchtime today, the first time we'd been. We are not vegetarians but were with two friends who are. The cafe was quite busy, especially for a Tuesday in January. The atmosphere was welcoming and the staff were friendly. The food was excellent, the service was good. We'll definitely go again. The only small criticism was... More

Lovely to see some gluten free options and clearly marked vegan options on the menu. The wine was a lovely organic sauvignon and a good choice of food. We visited at lunchtime and the place was lively with chatter from a few tables of groups of ladies out for lunch. The staff were friendly and looked happy in their work.... More

Arrived at 5pm on a Saturday on a day that Norwich City football team were playing at home (about 1.5 miles away) so we were lucky to get a parking place nearby. As they are open virtually all day we chose an early dinner because we were attending the Playhouse in the city centre (review pending!) We both chose from... More

This was my first visit to the River Green Cafe. I met up with a friend and we had planned a quick lunch. I read through the fantastic menu and although spoilt for choice, I selected the Mushroom Wellington and then Apple Crumble with Sticky Toffee sauce. The food was delicious, freshly cooked and good portion sizes. The staff are... More

Booked in advance and let them know about my garlic intolerance. All staff were really helpful, whilst also not making a big deal about it. Waiter checked with the chef as to what I could have whilst also seeing what could be specially prepared. Subtly handed me my own hand written version of the menu with all the things that... More
