The Greenhouse is a smart, stylish and relaxed new dining destination built on the old derelict Royal Arthur Park site. In an elegant, modern setting the restaurant luxuriously mixes mismatched shabby-chic furniture in funky colours with handsome wood tables and striking, specially commissioned artworks. It’s a space that’s just as perfect for an afternoon to a lingering lunch with all the trimmings, or a piping-hot pizza or pasta, an intimate catch-up or some serious gourmandising (just snacking, is very much encouraged!). whatever your preference, friendly and highly trained staff will be quick to make sure guests have just what they need.

Went here for a lunch business meeting, was unsure where the road was taking me but once in the restaurant the food was lovely and the service was very good. would definitely go back and one all the buildings around it are built it will be a lovely scenic place.

We have been here several times and the last two times we feel that it has gone downhill. We asked the waitress ( who was very pleasant but spoke little English) what a word meant on the menu for a starter - she didn't know but said it was 'nice' ( there was no effort to find out) . My father ordered a red thai curry which was £12 . The chicken option on this curry was an additional £5 - the chicken came plonked on top of the curry. £17 for a chicken curry where it wasn't even cooked together! It came with 2 poppadoms and a tiny pot of mint/yogurt. My curry ( £10) was a cauliflower and lentil curry that came with the same rice and poppadoms and a flat bread. We couldn't understand why the £10 curry had flatbread but not the £17 one! When we asked for extra flatbread we got normal bread. My husband had a soup for a starter - it came in a really shallow bowl with toast! For the price we would have expected some decent bread.
The food is now pretentiously overpriced here and not good value. We will not be back unless we hear that things have improved.

Very nice lunch and will definitely return. Although October we are outside on the patio and enjoyed the warm sunshine. Although there is building works nearby it didn’t affect the experience and is only short term anyway. Lovely atmosphere and very friendly staff! Food also amazing 😊look forward to visiting again asap.

Friendly welcome time to sit and catch up with 2 fruends and no pressure to hurry to make decisions.
Shared a platter to start, with plenty on for 3 people and our main course option of smaller portions was welcome so we coukd share a dessert.
A lovely time was enjoyed attentive staff.

When we arrived at the Greenhouse we were told that there was a residents lunch and we couldn't be served until 1.30, our booking was 12.30 despite us receiving an email the day before confirming our reservation. Apparently they had been trying to get in touch with us, surely they would have know about the lunch for a while.
The occasion was my 70th birthday which we were celebrating with 2 friends and both of us had travelled about three quarters of an hour to get there.
We were talking about going elsewhere when we were told that the chef had said he would cook for us and a table was found.
The pan fried hake was overcooked, no sign of the crab and there were pieces of what looked like sausage and my friend is vegetarian.
We have previously had lovely meals at your restaurant but I'm afraid we will not be back.

Booked here as it is only 5 mins from home, when my adult children visited and I was not up to cooking, thought it might be a problem that they are vegans; really pleasantly surprised when there were actually a couple of options they could choose from. Desserts are usually not possible at most restaurants but here they rustled up an avocado and chocolate mousse absolutely delicious, really well done them. Followed up with coffee in their comfortable seating area, really nice relaxing evening.

Food rather disappointing. Potatoes in the salad nicoise when my guest was assured there were none, over cooked steak and very fatty lamb. Pudding very odd - not a crème brulee as I know it.

Sorry to say but we were so disappointed :( A lovely setting but I booked a table for me and two friends to finally have a catch up. Nobody asked if we wanted drinks for ages and had to ask them to serve us. When the food finally came out, the red thai curry was luke warm and the poppadum's were horrible and the side dip was obviously out of a jar. I ordered a trio of deserts which all came in a jar container and the chocolate was tasteless and mainly tasted of Gelatine. I would no longer this place recommend to friends and family.

Food was good but restaurant lacked any atmosphere and looks out onto a building site. Despite advising it was a birthday celebration no one seemed to know or care. Probably better suited for a business lunch.

Lovely meal, too full for pudding but maybe next time. Quite quick service despite being fairly busy on a Friday evening. Love the idea of smaller portions for many of the main courses. Nice friendly staff and have recommended to many for lunch or evening dining. We can walk to it too which is an added bonus but there is ample free parking and set in a lovely location!

We’ve been to this restaurant many times but in the week, this was in fact the first time we have been on a Sunday. (What a difference). It was a lot busier and the table we were assigned to wasn’t the best. (Too close to people on the next table, you could hear everything they were saying and vice versa.). Then it was a long wait before anyone came to take our order, I had to ask in the end. Drinks were bought to us and then we ordered our food. That took ages to come, our meal was booked for 13.00 and our food came about 14.00. Quite a long wait, I did book this online so was annoyed about it all. Not sure of her name, she was either the Assistant manager/manager, I said to her I thought the wait was too long. She said she was sorry , but it was because they were very busy. But that in my opinion a poor excuse, if they knew they were going to be busy, extra staff should have on. The food was good, but I didn’t like the beef, it wasn’t to a good standard. But the management did offer me another meal and a complimentary sweet and coffee, which i accepted.. I know I will not go back on a Sunday, as they cannot cope. One of the waitresses was really nice and helpfull, unfortunately I didn’t get her name, but she was small and very attractive.
