    We were a party of four and as it was a Monday night the restaurant was rather quiet. However, this did not detract from the cheerful and professional waitress, or the excellent food. We all had 3 courses, although even with taster sized desserts we were almost defeated! Thank you for a pleasant evening.

    It is always a pleasure to eat at the Green Room, the food is tasty and well presented. The Service is friendly and attentive. The ambience is relaxing and sometimes if the music is obtrusive they are more than willing to turn it down. We have just been for Sunday lunch and there was no music playing at all.

    The Green Room is a fabulous restaurant with various different zones, so you can enjoy a meal in the main restaurant, the courtyard garden, the old converted timber framed house or the outside eating booths/sheds. The food is great quality using local produce and a good selection of wines and drinks which are all reasonably priced. The staff are very friendly and often go out of there way to help and make you feel looked after. The family and I really like it and we have been here on several occasions, so I would be happy to recommend having a meal at The Green Room.

    We had a lovely time at the Green Room. The food was absolutely delicious. Both of us opted for vegetarian meals and I have to say they were really good. No need to add seasoning, which is always a great sign. The staff were very friendly and attentive. A lovely evening out and would highly recommend.

    We have been here a quite few times and never been disappointed. Great vegetarian choice menu and excellent food. Portions are the correct size and not like one of those stain on a plate type restaurant's, that leaves you feeling hungry afterwards. A bit pricey but well worth it.
