Not many restaurants operate like this any more.... demonstrating a high standard of service, attention to detail, producing good quality dishes. I cannot believe this place has been on my list for so long yet last night was the 1st night that I actually visited. I had the Rump of Lamb with Aubergine puree and dauphinoise potatoes, my husband had the Ribeye Surf and Turf with garlic and chilli prawns with triple cooked chips and a to die for peppercorn sauce. The chef here clearly cares about every dish and that came across in the tenderness of the meat, the depth of the sauces and the size of the portions - which were not huge, but equally not tiny. We had the pigeon breast to start with which has an apple and celeriac slaw underneath it with a raspberry/balsamic sauce dotted round the plate.... the flavours were refreshing and light - perfect for a starter. Butter on the table (anyone who knows me will understand this is a big issue for me) - was curled beautifully and at the right temperature for spreading! Yippee - something so many restaurants fail to understand? Lord knows why! The atmosphere was cosy and inviting. We shall most definitely be returning.
Visiting from Australia and went there with some friends who lived locally. Great position on the corner of the old market square where there was plenty of free parking after 5:00pm. The title of restaurant and bar is correct, there was both there with the emphasis on the restaurant but with a bar for pre-dinner drinks.
Tables were nicely spaced out and laid out for a meal with wine giving a very warm and comfortable feel. There were nightly specials in addition to the the broad menu and a good wine menu as well.
Our meals were lovely, the service prompt and friendly. It was a great place and everyone throughly enjoyed the evening.
It was a first class restaurant that we would certainly go to again.
"Meeting with school friends"
Our six monthly meeting to catch up on old school friends. Very good food, especially the fresh fish from the "fish man" in the market square cooked as you like it by Greens. Comfortable restaurant with plenty of space for quiet conversation. Good choice of beers and excellent service.
Thank you so much! - Tim Wilson
We went last minute for a Sunday lunch. The food was absolutely delicious.. my family all agreed it was as close to a home made roast we have ever had when eating out. The beef was so tender. The vegetables were well seasoned and the potatoes lovely and crispy. The sticky toffee pudding was to die for, the ice cream was so creamy it was amazing. The lemon biscuit with the bruleee.. I would have bought a packet of them if they sold them!
The staff... they were a credit to that restaurant. The young lady behind the bar was so welcoming and very 'aware'. The young lads who served us were so polite and attentive .. such nice waiters. We go out a lot to eat in and around London and they could learn a lot from this polite young team in this restaurant !! Well done.. we will be back.
I arranged my wife's 60th birthday dinner (ten of us including four kids and their partners!) for Friday 9 June at Greens on recommendation of a good friend. From the second we arrived until the second we left we were made to feel welcome. Greeted with champagne and canapes - which were lovely - we sat at a lovely long table and were waited on by a young man and a young women who were exemplary in their service. Ordering from the a la carte menu, starters were wonderful but the real jewel in the crown is their main fish dishes. Their hake and their sea bream were simply beautiful, quite possibly the very best i've had locally. Desserts were aplentyful and coffee's to finish were served with a birthday cake and sparklers to finish the occasion.
Thank you Greens, we are converts and will be back again and again and again
