Where do I start. Well it's certainly a memorable experience. The restaurant is small (16 covers) and is only open for bookings, so you can't just pop in. However, Nik will open for small numbers, there were a total of 8 diners on the night were there. The menu changes daily and offers a selection of starters, main courses and... More

Just home from a splendid 'family lunch' to celebrate a birthday. Our first (but certainly not last), visit to The Old Greenhouse. We booked a couple of weeks ahead and realised that we were likely to be the only customers. Because the atmosphere is intimate and the space limited, we did not feel in any way intimidated by being the... More

Good menu and very nicely cooked food. Good service. Only little moan that not enough vegetables bought out and too many potatoes. We all left with full stomachs though. All 3 courses very nice.

Had a most wonderful meal here with my boyfriend. We were treated like royalty by the owner and chef, Nik. He really pulled out all the stops for us, providing us with a very personal experience. The food was outstanding - freshly baked bread with fruit, nuts and seeds, Nik made a trio of starters for us (as we couldn't... More

The Old Greenhouse really is an old converted Greenhouse with enough tables to seat about 12 customers. Myself and two friends were greeted by Nic as we arrived, a very pleasant and friendly guy who is chef, sommelier, waiter and dish washer. After we were seated Nic answered our many questions about his tiny restaurant then took our drinks order... More

Our fist time at the Old Greenhouse after passing it many times. The smallest restaurant we've ever been in but the food was great - fresh, quality ingredients beautifully prepared. Chef Nik was very attentive and welcoming. Looking forward to our next visit!

Very small restaurant in what looks like the Old Greenhouse and it hides a very big secret. The food is stunning, on top of that the service is very low key but of a very high standard. The Chef/Patron Nik will come and make sure all is well and if there is anything slightly different you'd like he will do... More
