Following a change of management things seem to have gone slightly downhill for this restaurant. Having eaten here twice recently I can say that the service is no longer as attentive and it can take a while to be served at times. Although the food us ok, the toilets also indicate a restaurant that is no longer at the the... More

The Green Rooms is one of our favourite local restaurants and we popped in for fish and chips with our teenage grandchildren. Our last-minute visit was made even better by the Mad March offer which offered a special deal on certain meals. The Green Rooms fish and chips has to be one of the best in the area. The beer...

We were in a party of 7 celebrating 2 birthdays and a wedding anniversary and were e treated to a wonderful evening of fine dining. The quality of food was excellent, good choice of wines and drinks and the service was tip top. We had another most enjoyable evening and look forward to returning soon.

My second visit for a light lunch didn't disappoint. Having greatly enjoyed fresh mussels (a real treat when cooked well!) several months ago, I had to return for more. Whilst waiting for my two starter choices to arrive I was served complimentary fresh made bread and olive oil with balsamic dip. This time I had also chosen duck pate with... More

What a great experience, it started with helpful e mails from them. Arrived there and managed to park right outside. Went in and from the start the waiter was so helpful and genuinely interested in me as a customer. First thing was a freebie of bread with Balsamic vinegar and oil waiter was pleased to say he had put more... More

Visited for mother's day they only about 3 tables in use, but I still had to ask for service for drinks etc. The food was very average, roast dinner was poor, Toby carvery would of been a better option. My daughter would break her teeth on the bullet potatoes. We didnt stay for dessert though we were all starving and... More

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
