Fantastic Food Great Ambience lovely staff - they changed the dish I wanted as I am allergic to Mussls and the fish dish I wanted had them in it. Nothing was a problem. I highly recommend. The fish dishes in particular looked delicious.

I had to send my first dish back with no flavour and second choice was no better
I have been before so this was a shock as food has always been good

This was the first time I had visited the restaurant, I went on recommendation of a friend. I absolutely loved it and it is now on my favourite place to eat list. Not only was the food excellent but the standard of service was excellent. The meal was a special occasion and so often it can disappoint but not in this instance.

I would recommend the Green Room to my friends without hesitation.

I can't wait until my next visit.

Had a lovely evening. The restaurant is very comfortable and service was great.

Food was also very nice apart from our dessert which was unfortunately disappointing. We had profiteroles and they were minute in size and over baked (very hard).

Greeted with a warm welcome and the service throughout was excellent. Couldn’t fault the food, portions exactly the right size and the taster deserts are a great idea for when you just want a “little something”.

Standard remains high when so many other local restaurants are unpredictable or have closed. Would happily take a demanding friend there as easily as someone who just wants an easy lunchtime eat.

This was a really memorable evening at your restaurant with excellent food and wine, perfect service in comfortable surroundings. It would have been outstanding had it not been for an extremely loud party of at least 10 people seated behind us with one guy who must have traded in his voice box for a foghorn. Consequently at times it was hard to have a conversation. If possible such loud selfish parties should be seated away from the main restaurant area. This is not a complaint - just an observation

The food was adequate but not tasty. Our meal of 2 courses each for 2 of us plus only one gin and tonic at £48 was expensive, I thought. Only A La Carte was available.
