“good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

Greens Bistro is a little difficult to find, you do go half way up the bridge from the town centre then to the right,cross the road walk down past a couple of shops then look to your left you will see a little gate which is also to your left it goes down a couple of steps and that is Greens Bistro look up and you will see the big sign. Trust me book a table you will not be dissapointed. It is a small restaurant with excellent service, we had a young lady and a young man serving us both were friendly and helpful throughout our meal - the food is divine all fresh and home made, between us we sampled meat and fish dishes which every mouthful was just so delicious and so tasty. We had desserts mine being home made ice creams and sorbets they were mourish.
We thought the wines on offer good and reasonably priced.
The complementry iced cold water we thought was a nice touch too.
If you want fine dinning good friendly service at a reasonable price then look no further than Greens Bistro - we enjoyed it so hope you do too if you go!

“Bit Drab”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

After reading the good reviews, my wife and I tried it out last week.

Firstly the entrance is a bit off puting - down a littered run down alley with iron gates leading down a couple of stairs which gave it a bit of a dungeon feel.

Inside the decor is yellow tinged drabness, and with the low ceiling I found the atmosphere to be a bit claustraphobic. No windows and sitting tucked into a tight alcove did not create a nice atmosphere.

The welcome from the lady in charge was luke warm to say the least. We booked for 8.30 and as there was no one else in the restaurant we got the feeling the staff wanted to lock up asap.

The food however was nice with a home cooked feel about it, and was very reasonably priced. We had a glass of their Rose wine each which to be honest was not the best.

To summarise - nice food but the place itself is not one I would return to.

Thank-you for your recent review, we are very happy that you liked our food; it is our main aim for our customers to enjoy our food. Yes along with most restaurants in this country we were very quite during the Olympic 200 metre final, it was a good race wasn’t it?

We do promote ourselves as a rustic, back street Bistro so we are a little surprised that you were expecting a glass fronted beach type location. Along with most restaurants we do pay a lot of money in rates to our local council and do also wish that they cleaned the streets more often.

The rose wine is ok, but as it is the very cheapest glass of wine on our list it most certainly is not the best wine we serve, they are a little more expensive than £3.50 a glass.

As you live a long way from us we would not expect you to return really, but having looked at all the other reviews you have written we can see you have a lot of negative things to write.

We cannot understand why having such a vast knowledge of the catering industry you have not opened your own restaurant; surely you would make a fortune and be world famous.

We are very happy that you enjoyed the food here at Greens Bistro.

“Excellent food, good service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2012

Being the first time we've visited this establishment, we were not disappointed by the choice and quality of the food, which is extremely competitively priced. The staff were very friendly but found service a little slow. There seemed to be an extended time between courses. That said, it will suit some patrons and should not detract from the standard of food.
