Excellent food really nice! Service really good too. It was really busy but it didn't effect the service! Definitely will be going again soon. Thank you
Lovely meal and was looked after well, good value for money, and there was a good atmosphere, Karen and the staff work really well together, thank you once again for a nice evening
Excellent food and service! Also excellent choice of gluten free food on the menu. Great atmosphere would highly recommend and will be returning for sure
We enjoyed a good meal the staff very friendly and helpful a great place.
The Bowling Green has a limited menu but food is well cooked and delicious. On occasions there are "specials" in addition to the menu. The restaurant was refurbished and expanded fairly recently and the new facility is well appointed with a pleasant ambience. The staff, many of whom are young, are very pleasant and efficient. Toilets were not forgotten in the reburbishment and they are of a much higher standard than the norm.
Very nice with excellent staff, they were very accommodating and friendly. Food very nice however two things let them down for me, they promote home cooked food but when I asked if the mash potato was real potato I was told “no it’s not, it’s from a packet”. Mash potato is so easy and simple to make why would a nice pub/restaurant let it self down by using Smash! The second thing was the English mustard, good quality mustard can really compliment steak however Heinz sweet, mild sickly American type mustard can ruin it. Apart from these issues the Bowling green is lovely and well worth a visit.
Nice restaurant off the side of The Bowling Green pub, we sat in the new dining area which was very nice. There is a good selection of food and it is always well cooked.
Overall we had a very good meal and the portions were reasonable sized for the price we paid although the kids fish was on the little side. I had vegetable lasagna with salad - the salad was fresh not like some places where you get limp lettuce and dried up tomato. I asked to change the garlic bread for chips which was not a problem.
Yet again a good experience at The Bowling Green. Great food, excellent service from friendly staff & lovely atmosphere. Just what you want from your local.
Another great meal at The Bowling Green, good choice of food and great service. Always a nice atmosphere and good selection of drinks. Would recommend.
