We absolutely love River Green and keep going back because we want to try everything on the menu! It’s so lovely to go out for food knowing you can eat anything and that time and thought has been put into where all the food comes from. We hope River Green will start leading the way for more places to be more like them! Thank you for all your efforts and incredible food!

Our evening was absolutely fabulous from start to finish. Impeccable service from the moment we walked through the door and throughout our visit. The food was AMAZING and highly rated by our fastidiously vegetarian son. Trying to come with an excuse to visit again as soon as possible.

River Green is always great in every respect. Good as many others are, there isn't a vegan/ vegetarian in Norfolk that comes anywhere near the quality of food produced by Chris Avey and the service provided by his staff. On our recent visit, I had the nut roast and my wife the Japanese dish for which Chris won an award; both dishes were excellent, cuisine and value -wise.

Have been an infrequent customer for years. Spent many many happy birthday and other celebrations at River Green. This time it was a party of 4 celebrating being able to meet up again! Super meal, super staff, very safe clean environment. In all our visits over many years we have never been disappointed and the high standards of food and service remain.

Wonderful restaurant. Food was incredible, all the staff, both waiting and the chef/kitchen staff are friendly and attentive. Not rushed at all so a very relaxing and enjoyable experience. Everywhere is very clean. Staff are very efficient at making sure we booked in for Track and Trace which is so important. Cannot praise River Green enough!

Really recommend this restaurant. Lovely light airy ambience with well spaced out tables. I also felt very reassured about the Covid safety aspects; staff were all wearing masks as were customers until seated. The staff also went out of their way to assist and were really helpful. As for the food... absolutely delicious!! My friend and I both had a tortilla with refried beans, sour cream, cheese and chilli jackfruit plus loaded fries. We’re definitely booking again soon! They also do frozen meals which I bought for my mother who wanted a change from supermarket ready meals. Waitress really helpful in getting these ready as we departed. Highly recommended.

As usual, great – warm welcoming, staff + proprietor chat and menu info., very pleasant ambiance and surroundings, excellent food despite GF + vegan limitations, great acoustics for vibrant chat, no time pressure to vacate table and a warm, mint choc au revoir. Can’t think how it could be bettered except sometimes have to park a few minutes’ walk away!
