Six years and many visits since my last review of this restaurant, the previous manager moved on some time ago but standards continue high. My (regular) experiences over that time have varied, but have never been bad. Today was so good I felt I had to review again and repeat my previous 5 stars for value, food, ambience and service....

The green room was a lovely evening in a restaurant with atmosphere, good food and decent service. I had a delightful duo of pork dish and my sister had a good fish platter. The only note would be the rushing over of the bill and the rushing over of the card machine made us feel a bit like we were... More

Went there for a birthday meal, having been in the past and enjoyed it. They have just refurbished the eating area, which is now in a series of interlinked 'rooms' on different levels. The low lighting and pleasant décor make for a very relaxed and unhurried atmosphere. My wife wanted a dessert, so we skipped starters and headed into the... More

We all ate the venison pie which was OK but sadly not special. Desserts not ordered as the menu was very heavy winter. Shame. Not as good an experience as I previously remember. Much... More

Saturday night was spent at the green room which is a very nice spotless place to eat. The menu is great with the starter sharing menu a fantastic idea. Reasonably priced and with a great range on wines and beer I can really recommend this place to anybody who likes a quite meal and good wine.

I found myself back in the Green Room this weekend for the first time in a couple of years. It occurred to me that I have never had anything other than a great meal in this restaurant and wondered why we didn't come here more frequently. We had originally booked for 9 people but 3 of our party came down... More

We had a seafood macaroni with side salad,... More

Have been in the Green Room several times and was a bit shocked in the difference of the quality of our meal. We were in a hurry so an early Sat eve Gammon eggs and chips, how you can you get that wrong, bullet eggs, leather gammon, thats how. The staff as usual were helpful, friendly and attentive.
