"The residents can't eat like this every night" my wife said, half interrogatively. The answer was, I am sure, negative. The day after the African Hunter Menu you would want a slab of king clip or a decent steak. There were times during the course of reading John Fowles The Magus when I thought he was just pulling my leg,... More

After a really fantastic, paired tasting meal bought for us as gift, on leaving we were confronted by a waiter with a bill for water and coffee. This after a meal costing in excess of £200. We found this action totally out of place in an establishment such as the Greenhose and actually spoilt a lovely evening.

we thought that our dietary requirements ( one vegetarian and two who eat some fish but no meat and only veggie cheese and wine and a 7 year old there at their invite ) would be a challenge . Not a bit of it. The team there led by Dustin were brilliant. I couldn't tell you what we ate but... More

I have never had a better fine dining night than in Greenhouses restaurant. The setting is beautiful in the middle of a winery. The interior is chic and elegant but not overdone. The service is perfect and always friendly. The wine card makes every wine lovers heart to jump. And the food was just divine. You have a fixed menu... More

The service of the lengthy 'African Hunter' menu was very professionally done without the fuss that sometimes accompanies such menus. Well done Laura. The presentation was original and just fell short of being gimmicky. What impressed me was the variety of flavours and the fact that I ended the meal and still thoroughly enjoyed the petit fours. Perhaps the most... More

Food is beautifully prepared and servers explain each dish very well. We didn't do the wine pairings as we don't drink that much at one time. Waiter recommended very good single glasses. Very creative cuisine!

Just one word- but I have to write 100 characters. The format has changed with just one tasting menu- just the 10 courses, but they are small. We chose to do wine pairing which was SO worthwhile. Tip: Although they are smaller glasses of wine (they are not very much smaller), you are mixing fizz, red & white, so do... More

My brother and I, and our wives, visited for dinner. We had the 10-course meal with wine pairings. We looked at the prices before booking and we were expecting a lot, but it was worth every cent. The food and the presentation, as well as the wine choices, were outstanding. We weren't expecting it to be as good as it's... More

We had one African Hunter and one Vegetarian menu with wine pairing. Food was exceptionally good - wonderful flavours and presentation. Wine pairing was excellent in all courses and exceptionally good in the white wines. The only course we did not enjoy so much was the main dessert. Mango sorbet and a tapioca style pudding with almonds was bland and... More

Exceptional food, fantastic service, a truly great experience. I think the atmosphere could be even better with some light music in the background as its extremely quiet in certain parts of the dinning area.
