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. Great as this is a favourite of mine but it's with sirloin steak and I don't care for sirloin. Now the Green... More

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...

Normally love this place , but it really lacked atmosphere ! Few tables taken, we sat in the conservatory. Nice menu, but we were shown or told about the specials until we noticed them on the way out. Felt that we were rushed when try to take our order. I had the chicken kiev , very dry and the tomato...

I have eaten at the Green Room on a number of occasions - family birthday for 14, dinner with couples and friends - and the restaurant has been excellent on every occasion. The service is fantastic, always there when you need yet never obtrusive. A wide ranging menu and lots of lovely wines (I had the Rioja to accompany the... More

We must have gone on an off night as really not a very special experience. Food was adequate, staff not particularly interested and the room itself is underwhelming. I don't think we will return.

Excellent menu with great food. Cooked and presented in a delightful manner. Staff friendly and attentive. Atmosphere very good for the occasion. Recommend the restaurant to anyone who enjoys good food in pleasant surroundings. Online booking didn't appear to work however followed up with telephone call and booking made!

There were four of us work friends on a night out and this restaurant didn't disappoint. Although it was a busy Saturday, the food was excellent. We all ordered different dishes, they were well presented with ample portions and attention was paid to the way each requested their meet cooked. Lovely friendly atmosphere, super decor.

The thing I value the most about this place is the service. The food fresh and local and is excellent, the service is outstanding and the ambience is very relaxed. The waiters can tell you about the food, how it's cooked and where it is sourced. They are at hand to enhance your experience and yet not in your face.... More

Having enjoyed previous visits with the same group of friends our latest visit was a bit disappointing. The staff were friendly but the service was slow and as others have noted inattentive, especially on arrival and waiting to order. Like Roger C the food was ok to good but certainly not great and it appeared to my party that the... More

Hi Thanks for your review. Really disappointed to hear that you and your guest Roger C did not find your evening up to your previous experience. I would like to assure you that the last thing we aim for is to become 'Chain like' but we clearly did not get it right for you on the night. I would like... More
