Firstly the food was good however the service was dismal. We were there for 6pm sit down and finished eating at 9:30ish then had coffee and walked out at 10 so don't be in a hurry. After 35 minutes of arriving we had to go to the bar to ask someone to take our order and give us a menu.... More

I went with my partner for Sunday lunch the other week, I had a roast and it was lovely, the service was great and lovely staff... but the dining room was messy, with blown bulbs, wonky light fittings, stuff over the floors and the toilets were dirty and dusty

Attentive staff but not the most interesting vegetarian options. Nice ambiance and enjoyed the desserts. Sadly felt that the veg options were uninspired and lacking in flavour. No parking except on the street.

As always, the staff at the Green Room looked after us well. Food was excellent - I had Sunday roast, which was faultless with plenty of veg - and staff were very attentive and happy for us to take our time as a family group celebrating a birthday. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. My partner and I stayed for the night... More

We stopped here for lunch and chose from the lunchtime menu, which had plenty of options and was reasonably priced. There was a pleasant atmosphere, the service was excellent and the food arrived promptly.
