Respond to Review of River Green Cafe
Review: It is worth going out of your way to visit this place, which is as good as any vegetarian place we've ever found in the UK. It's in a lovely, peaceful spot in the middle of the village of Trowse, on the outskirts of Norwich; right by a large village green equipped with all sorts of attractions for younger children (including an extraordinary audio guide to traditional games they might try to play!). It's a lovely airy, roomy restaurant with nice, bright, modern decor and a relaxing atmosphere. Most importantly of all, however, is that it has an extensive and imaginative, all-vegetarian menu with plenty of vegan options. What a lovely change from the norm that the biggest challenge was to decide what to pick. We went for two meals from the specials board - I had a warming mixed bean and pasta stew with garlic bread, my wife had pasta shells stuffed with a very tasty mushroom and hazelnut filling, served with two different kinds of bread. Also plenty of sweet options - I had summer pudding with ice cream with a raspberry sauce; Julie had chocolate torte with fresh raspberries and blueberries and a raspberry coulis and cream! We desperately wanted to lick the plates! They have a loyalty card which we hope to make use of. Our only worry is whether enough people will support it. Although very close to Norwich and even closer to Whittlingham Country Park, all but Trowse residents would have to make a special effort to get there as the village is effectively on a dead-end road. Which means they'd have to know it was there in the first place. So spread the word!
