Great food but not vegan friendly but they did make the effort to adapt a vegetarian meal into a vegan meal.

We had a Buffett which we had catered to our specific request - the food was gorgeous, fresh no freezer stuff! Great portion size and was so reasonable for the price we were very happy. We had drinks on arrival and... More

Excellent B&B above this good restaurant. Had a great traditional english cooked breakfast after a very comfortable night's sleep in the well appointed rooms upstairs. Would happily eat there again.

We have been going to the Green Room for years (my last review in 2013) and the food along with service is good.... but... to keep up with Middletons they now have a mixed grill on the menu.

Hi, Thanks for your review and really sorry to hear that your experience wasn't as good as usual. It seems from chatting to the chef that there was a misunderstanding here as our mixed grill is made up with Sirloin steak (smaller than the full 8oz) and when you said you would be happy with a whole ribeye (full 8oz)...

Up-market quality but totally unpretentious. A really lovely and memorable Saturday evening meal. Although we reserved in advance, the restaurant wasn't full but pleasantly lively. My gluten-free partner had lots to choose from. We chose the 4 'nibbles' for £10 in lieu of a starter which gave us a nice choice of appetizer flavours - the stuffed Peppadews were delicious...
