Excellent value for lunch. I had two courses and a glass of wine for £23. Coffee at £5 was however expensive even with the couple of chocolates. Food was excellent and so tasty and fresh and cooked in an imaginative way. Will definitely return in the near future and highly recommend you visit.
Chris welcomed us as if old friends (not visited since February as we live over 140 miles away).
Quick and attentive service - good choice of dishes for all three courses. The wine list is also good if a bit pricey. There was a pleasant buss in the restaurant as customers enjoyed their food.
We will all certainly visit again.
Very impressed with everything, had a great evening
Delightful lunch, the Menu du Jour is great value. We really enjoyed our meal and looking forward to our next visit.
As always - a very fine dining experience - imaginative dishes using local and regional produce.
A real asset to Sherborne.
Delicious Sunday lunch for my son’s 14th Birthday. Menu was short but varied. Good prompt and well presented. Front of house very efficient and pleasant but a tad too formal for my liking - a smile would not go a miss.
Absolutely outstanding food quality and presentation.
Excellent value for such high standard.
we have been quite a few times, this time we took some friends,
Outstanding quality of cooking and great value 3 course lunch plus amuse bouch and breads
Limited wines by the glass....would have liked a medium dry house wine or Chardonnay or voignier at lunch
Booked again already!
Excellent service , great food, lovely touches - definitely a special treat!
Best place for a sophisticated Sunday lunch. Absolutely delicious roast beef but sadly too full to try the deserts!
Our usual venue for dinner with friends when they visit from Scotland. Interesting menus, first class flavours and friendly attentive welcome.
Fantastic food & service all at a very reasonable price for the set lunch menu.
Delicious three course set menu with interesting innovative dishes such as homemade kimchi with sesame seeds - a refreshing delight. Bistro is located in a charming period building in the centre of lovely Sherborne. Attentive but not intrusive service. Pleasantly busy but not noisy atmosphere. We will definitely be back.
Occasional diners at The Green - always a very satisfactory experience.
As always it was perfect, food fabulous, great wines and extremely attentive staff, perfect for any occasion
Excellent meal. Unusual menu which was interesting & our choices were very enjoyable. Very polite waiting service. One very slight complaint & that was that we had to wait quite a while for our main course. However, the waiter was very apologetic & offered us a free drink. The passion fruit panacotta was delicious!
Excellent food as always. Service was brilliant. Couldn't fault the evening.
Fantastic food and service. Definitely one to visit.
Absolutely delicious meal to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Would highly recommend The Green for a special occasion, although it is quite expensive. We had trout gravadlax / guinea fowl starter, roast lamb / roast duck mains, meadowsweet mousse / chocolate clafoutis. Service was attentive but not overly fussy and with the right amount of time between courses. Perhaps a little more information about the unusual courses would have been helpful, and as one of us had to drive then greater choice of wine by the glass would have been welcome.
Perfect all round, food delicious, service attentive and surroundings cosy without being stuffy, Why go anywhere else.
A warm welcome awaits guests in addition to a good food experience. Highly recommended - we will definitely be returning.
Set menu is good value for the food, but the 'extras' can add up quickly.
Very good/ different separate vegan menu.
Interesting and delicious menu, great service - will go again!
Went to The Green for lunch on a Saturday, we started off with some complimentary bread & butter followed by an amuse bouche. I went for the menu du jour which was very good value for money.
Very relaxed friendly service, we will be back.
We ate al-fresco for the first time and the garden was very quiet and peaceful. The service from a young waiter was outstanding: nothing too difficult and a very pleasant demeanour. As usual with the Green; the food was outstanding and we thoroughly enjoyed all of the dishes we ordered.
Interesting menu, great food, and attentive service from this lovely family run restaurant. Also there is a large carp park just around the corner on LHS so very ease to park. A real treat.
Very good everything really. The review asks if we would recommend The Green to friends or relatives, we already do and have. I don't normally give 5 stars to anything, again I already have. Some of the food is more expensive than I might already pay but it is worth the extra for an occasion, and there are always the Menu de jours which are a little more affordable in fact as I write this I'm wondering if I'm blowing our little secret. The staff have always been good and approachable as well. I'm going to have to stop now as I'm breaking all of my rules...
We have been to The Green many times, we make a specific visit there from Exeter and it has always exceeded our expectations. This time there were two vegans in our party, they were delighted to be presented with their own vegan menu which was outstanding.
The food for all of us was wonderful as always and the service excellent, and at a leisurely pace which suited us very well, coffee afterwards was taken in the little outside courtyard, an absolute delight!
I would love to give a review of the food here but we never got a chance to eat.
We arrived 10 minutes early. They couldn't find our booking at first. When it was found we were told we weren't expected until quarter to ( it was 7.35 and I said we had a booking at 7.45) we were pointed to an area and told ours was the table in the corner. Both tables were in the corner so we picked the one we liked. From the look of the manager we chose the wrong one! He gave us our menus and rushed through the options of the menus and then rushed away. No offer of a drink, water or anything.
We then waited for 15min totally ignored as a waitress sat another guest at a table next to us, then returned with a drink for him. She also tended to a nearby table, presented them with their bill and took payment. All the time totally ignoring us.
The next table (who arrived after us) had his order taken and then the manager finally acknowledged us. We explained how they had made us feel by ignoring us and how upset my wife was( it's our anniversary) when I asked it was the restaurant policy to just give you a menu without offering you a drink he would not answer and just said I will get you a drink.
When I explained how upset and angry we were his responses were patronising and insincere.
We just gave up and left with .y wife in tears.
I am sure the food is lovely and I am sure if you are local and a regular the service is good.
But as neither of those I have never felt more unwelcome.
So my advice would be to avoid The Green if you want a lovely evening.
Misleading fixed priced menu, flavourless very dry food. Overpriced mediocre wine.
Totally different to our last visit two years ago which at the time I gave 5 stars.
Excellent service, very friendly, thoroughly enjoyed our meal, we will be back.
Excellent food, great value for money and those little extra tasters they bring are a great start to your meal.
I wish we had discovered it sooner. We will be back.
As ever, a most enjoyable experience. All aspects of the meal and surroundings were very good.
The food is well thought out, the meal balanced, with unusual items appearing.
The lunch-time 3 course special is great value.
For a special place to eat in Sherborne, The Green ticks all the right boxes - pleasant decor, spacious, interesting and delicious food and cooking, good wine list and very friendly owner. Only thing that I'd suggest may be good is carafes of wine as an option between glass and bottle. Highly recommend, and according to my fellow diner who went there 7 years earlier - the standard has remained a constant!
Excellent and imaginative food at a very reasonable price
Exquisite food, excellent service and good value. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys good food.
The second time we have eaten here. Really impressed by the lunchtime three course deal. Would certainly recommend , and our pescatarian friends were delighted too.
Excellent experience will use this restaurant again.
