Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Greenhouse - Rusholme
Review: The first time we visited The Greenhouse we thought it had shut down as it looked like it was falling apart! My partner then phoned and spoke to the owner, and he kindly said he would open for us if we let him know when we were coming. When we arrived, there was no-one in sight, and we seated ourselves before the owner appeared from somewhere. he was very kind, and I really would like to give a good review, but I wasn't really impressed. The decor was very dated, a bit grimy, and odd (kitsch?!), and there were several large flies buzzing around us for the whole meal. The toilets were also a bit grotty and old. Our meal was ok, with great portion sizes, but I didn't feel it was any different to a packet you might get from the supermarket. There was a huge amount of vegetables served with the meal, but they were a bit over cooked. The food also took an eternity to arrive, and so we had no time for dessert, as we were going to a show after. We were the only two customers for the whole time there. I am a bit confused by all the really good reviews of this place - maybe we caught it on an off day, or maybe they are due to the very friendly nature of the owner?
