Green's Steakhouse - Bracknell
We arrived and ordered and bottle of wine and after that we were told they didn’t have any bbq sauce left so they couldn’t do any meals with bbq sauce so we weren’t able to have the rib starter so we decided to just go for two lots of garlic bread to be told they didn’t have that either so we ended up just going for the steak and asked for chunky chips but they didn’t have any of those either. The steaks were suppose to be medium rare but were more rare but luckily weren’t too bad. We then went to order a pudding and before saying we could have a pudding the waitress checked her watch and we felt like we had to rush our pudding and finish our wine as everyone just kept staring at us. This was suppose to be a special meal out and it was awful. They didn’t have half of the stuff on the menu which is quite limit anyway and didn’t tell us until after we had ordered drinks and had we have known we would have gone somewhere else. It is safe to say we won’t be going there again especially as the bill came to over £100 and was not very good at all!! Not a happy customer!!
Inside is very nice, wasnt keen on the draught lager and there is only one choice. We had various meat dishes between the 6 of us but they all seem to come smothered in Barbecue sauce.
It may well say that on the menu but not sure.
Probably be better if it was served seperately so you could leave it if you wished.
Also everything comes with fries, even the salmon so again not sure about that.
Overall though nothing major to not like.
The staff are really friendly, toilets are clean so all in all pretty good.
So near yet so far. Unfortunately another review for Greens of what might have been. We had a table for 4 on Saturday so a busy time. We waited for a while for the waitress to take our order which was written down on a paper pad. 30 mins later nothing had arrived so we gave it a gentle chase and then our mains turned up, yes before we had had our starters. The waitress didn't seem overly concerned but obvs we sent them away which was a bit of a shame as one of the steaks was a special order ribeye. Looking around it was clear that our table wasn't the only one with issues.We then got told a somewhat bizarre story concerning why things were going so wrong which involved a homeless man stealing one of their iPads which had crashed the online ordering system, a tale so weird it had to be true. To be fair to Greens what food we got was good although £36 for fillet which arrives with a few fries and sprig of tomatoes and a garlic clove is a bit steep. We have been to Greens before for both lunches and evening meals and each time our overall view is that the food is good but the service just let's it down with either serving staff who seem either forgetful disinterested or both, in fact our waitress had her coat on and left before we had been served our coffee. The redeeming feature on the night was the manager who cancelled the bill which would have been well over £200 so a very generous gesture and we will go back again but just hope they can get the service right, hopefully 5th time lucky.
not bad. Service not really good enough for a place of this quality and cost. Otherwise perfectly pleasant
food was excellent, and was cooked perfectly. the service was good.
Loved the fire effect table, really set the mood along with the industrial atmosphere. Food had to be sent back after asking for well done and receiving pink meats but other than that it was okay. We ordered the Sunday roast and waited over an hour which was a bit long to be waiting. Food was quite tasty though!
"Medium rare" steak that was on the blue side of rare, tough, and more gristle than steak. "Roasted garlic" that was mostly raw.
The chicken fillet burger was a bit pink too, (and very bland).
Also, extremely expensive for what is sub-par pub food.
Certainly the worst meal I've had in a few years.
The service was incredible, the staff were extremely friendly and super helpful. We wasn't sure if we was going to like a certain wine and they allowed us to taste a very small amount just so we didn't waste any money and the chef let us taste a sauce that goes with the steak because we never had it before and wanted to know if we'll like it.
The food was absolutely delicious and came out very quickly. The steak was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing however, the chips portion wasn't as big as I expected but they had a lovely texture and taste. Due to the small side portion it gave us room for pudding which was a bonus.
The cost fit us perfectly especially for a special occasion. Would highly recommend coming here just for a meal or special occasion.
Good staff, sometimes forgetful but overall experience was good.
Food not great again and the service was awful ! Took ages to even get a drink , was terrible
The steaks were incredibly well cooked and both the sweet potato fries and french fries were among the best that I have tasted. - service was polite, efficient and very friendly. Highly recommended
Overall a great experience the steaks are delicious aswell as the sides highly recommended
Lovely evening for my Mother in Law’a birthday and the staff brought out a dessert and sang Happy Birthday (I didn’t ask!) Fabulous service and great steak as always
Jess our waitress was very polite and informative ( Excellent Sevice) Steaks cooked to requirements. One criticism we found it a little overpriced.
We had a very frosty welcome.The waitress didn’t want to be there.Food was disappointing.Macaroni cheese was pasta shells with cheese on top.We didn’t stay for dessert and won’t be going back.
We felt very disappointed with our experience. We were there celebrating our anniversary. We had to wait ages for our drinks and when we got our food our steak was very bloody (when we asked for medium) fatty and extremely salty. Chips were also salty and didn’t look cooked enough. I left half of my steak and my chips. It was extremely noisy and the people next to us were very clearly drug intoxicated. The fire alarm went off through our meals but was not told to vacate the building and we had a very strong smell of cigarette smoke half way through our meal. We had to be somewhere else so felt we couldn’t send our food back otherwise we would be late. Overall a poor experience and won’t be returning.
Poor food, tasteless and bad cuts of meat. Overpriced for what it was. Service was adequate but not very responsive when we said food was poor. There are better options.
Really lovely meal, lovely staff and excellent evening.
Our 5 year Anniversary,fantastic food,service was fantastic,will definitely be going back👍👍
How can a steak house run out of mushrooms and onion rings?????
Not only that, then serve you with cold tomatoes and garlic only then to be stared down by the chef!!!!!
Then change then wine to a differ variety when you order - same again please????
This is the second disaster meal at Greens and we won’t be going again. Such a shame, could be the go to place in Bracknell.
We have been meaning to go to Greens for a long time and finally got round to it on Saturday. Not disappointed - service was fantastic, food was brilliant (a little pricey but worth it) - my steak was cooked to perfection and my partners ribs were delicious. Saying that I ordered a rib eye and got a sirloin but didn’t complain because it was so good 🤷🏼♂️ Only downside was a very loud table that was dining at the same time - waitress tried her hardest to quieten them down, although when the food arrived for them didn’t hear a peep 😂
Overall great and recommended, we’ll be back 👍🏻👍🏻
We went there,our first visit!!! We were the 3rd couple in the far room,12 other couples arrived and nearly all got there food b4 us,not the best experience,
Starters were cold, sent chicken wings back & they reheated them then gave them back to us! The sirloin on the roast dinner was nice but the Yorkshire’s were shop bought & frozen ( nothing like the picture on their website), roast potatoes were awful & it was lukewarm at best.
Couldn't fault it. Food was spot on, drinks and service excellent.
Whilst the service was good the food was very average, portions were small and for the price expected more, there were 8 of us, including 3 kids, we had 2 alcoholic drinks between us and it was £35 a head.
Menu choice for special dietary requirements poor. Starter not cooked, neither was replacement starter. Main course of T-bone steak was tough and had no flavour. Sorbet dessert was too tart. Not much variety of non-alcoholic drinks although waitress made a nice elderflower spritz as an alternative. Vastly over-priced and 20% service charge outrageous. Will not return or recommend
Some of the worst service I have ever experienced. Food was very average, music was far too loud for a mid afternoon crowd - and by crowd I mean there were 3 tables of customers. Although at least the staff were enjoying the music while chatting to friends who had dropped in and were sitting at the bar giggling and looking at photos or social media on their phones. It was not busy at all which leaves no excuse for the terrible service. Floor staff need to be retrained in basic service skills..... and manners.
And the waitress then had the nerve to ask me to leave a gratuity. Just an awful experience.
My food was lovely but my husband and children said that the chips came out with salt already on them and quite a lot too
Food was late and awful. Waiting an hour for a sub-standard steak......would expect much more from a so called steakhouse, especially at those prices.
Brilliant! The food was amazing! Will definitely be going again!
2nd visit to Greens. First time back in February, service was slow and disorganised but food was really good so decided it was worth a second chance.
On this visit the service was still poor - waiting nearly 45 mins for a starter and a further 45 mins for a main.
Starters tasted good but were just warm enough but the mains were bad. Steak fries warm, french fries cold, onion rings luke warm, steaks lukewarm, pork belly cold, tomatoes cold, garlic cold, salad non existent!
Servers were working hard and multi tasking but despite several requests the ‘manager’ would not come and talk to us as he was ‘busy’ in the kitchen!
Really want this restaurant to succeed as Bracknell has waited so long for the new town centre and successful businesses are in important but in the short term at least I can only recommend avoiding Greens.
A truly disappointing birthday meal (and as on my first visit they ran out of draught lager!)
The food was delicious. The service was not at it's best. We waited a long time to order drinks. After we ate it took a long time for the plates to be collected and we did not get desserts as the wait was too long.
Very disappointed as we were here to celebrate my daughters A - level results and the service ruined the experience.
Very slow service. Food good but medium rare steak was over cooked.
Nice theme, staff were very attentive and helpful. Food was ample and well cooked. A good experience all round.
Main meal took ages to arrive, and my Steak was medium rather than medium rare, I did not send it back as I had waited so long. The waitress was excellent
10% service charge added to our bill which was wrong as we had been charged for extra drinks we never had this was due to asking for drinks yet waiting 20 minutes for waitress to return - she didn’t so we asked someone else for them. Asked for the bill was asked if we wanted our change we said yes but was given the change minus the 10% service charge! It is OUR choice if we pay a tip so the full change should have been given. Will not be returning.
Good place to eat, the service was very welcoming and very attentive. The steaks were outstanding and my wife's fillet steak was as tender as it could be and my Rib Eye was cooked to perfection. The portions are large and so was the side orders. The restaurant décor was superb and inviting. The food is a bit on the expensive side but you get what you pay for in life and it was well worth the money
Really fantastic steak and service was quick with really lovely waitress :) only downside was the music which we sort of had to shout over. Definitely will be back!
I don't normally complain in restaurants but I did this time. I ordered seasonal vegetables which, I was told, would consist of broccoli, peas and carrots. What we got was no broccoli, and a small amount of peas and carrots, padded out with a larger quantity of potatoes. We didn't need potatoes as we had fries anyway. The waiter did agree to refund for the veg, but it shouldn't have happened in the first place.
The fries I thought were rather boring.
The ribs were good; the half rib had plenty of meat. I don't think I could have managed the full rack.
They didn't have my preferred dessert (the pear crumble).
Enjoyed evening at Greens, the fillet steak was superb, but meal was let down by 4 tiny tomatoes and “matchstick” fries were over cooked was like trying to eat a pile of sticks, gave up! Forget thin fries they are awful, use regular cut or opt for steak fries.
The staff were very good, though service slow to get going.
