Guests at the party were principally relatives, many of whom had travelled great distances on the day, hence the timing. When discussing arrangements with Simon Green, the proprietor, it was obvious that nothing would be too much trouble, which proved to be the case. The guests ranged from a few months old to 93 years of age, all of whom were both well catered and well cared for. The buffet was delightful, plenty of it and the service that went with it was again top notch! The atmosphere was superb with comfortable space to sit, stand or venture on to the patio. The feed back from guests was unanimously positive where "a great party was held at a great venue!" Thank you Simon and the team.

Went to a wedding reception here. We were given a choice of starters, a choice of three main courses and a choice of sweet all of which were pre ordered well in advance. The service was very slow and dis-organised. Plates of food were coming out of the kitchen and then going back in again?? Not sure there were enough waiting staff for the number of tables. My biggest gripe is the for the lady who ordered chicken with "no" sauce. No chicken arrived and when an enquiry was made she was told they had run out of chicken!!!! Gammon or mushroom wellington was offered but neither of these were suitable so the lady got nothing. Surely an omelette could have been produced from a "professional" kitchen. During a conversation with the chef one of the points made was that the lady who ran front of house was "helping" in the kitchen. This again indicates a shortage of staff. The venue itself is lovely and I note all the good reviews so I can only assume this was a one off problem. Maybe more staff and an attention to detail with someone running front of house would help to prevent this happening again. For example If you have a table of ten and five have ordered chicken, four have ordered gammon and one has ordered mushroom wellington then how difficult can it be to deliver those meals to the table.

We held our wedding reception at the Green rooms and Simon and his team were absolutely first class in everything they did and with all the planning Simon was able to accommodate everything we hoped for and more.

The room was set up to allow the band to play and folks to mingle and dance and also tables and settees for those wishing to chat.
Everyone who came, with age ranges between 18-84 all said what a great venue this was and enjoyed their night.
Next time I need a function venue I will certainly be contacting Simon again and have no hesitation in recommending Simon and his team to you.

We held our wedding reception here. The menu was extensive which meant that our family and friends had more choice than a similar venue. The food was all well cooked and delicious and came out hot. Portions were generous and plenty of vegetables on the table and the puddings fab! The tables looked great and there was ample room for our live band, a dance floor and an area for the children to watch a dvd. It was also good value for money and we would recommend the venue to others.

My sister held her wedding reception here, and from start to finish it was such a lovely day. The food was superb - especially the monkfish and the cheesecake - and the atmosphere and decorations were excellent. Professional, efficient and friendly staff helped to make it a day to remember. Thanks to the whole team! I would definitely recommend The Green Rooms without hesitation.
