I couldn't fault anything about the restaurant. The food, staff and atmosphere were amazing. We will definitely be returning!
Been here several times since opening and highly recommend The Violet Green. The restaurant has a perfectly styled setting, coupled with a relaxed atmosphere and excellent choice of music. It’s a calm and relaxed environment that allows you to destress and enjoy your evening. The service is attentive, friendly and uplifting. Food is consistently excellent, it’s refreshing to see regional produce and suppliers. The Chef certainly maximises flavours on a plate and a league above other restaurants. The owners have thought of everything and the restaurant delivers on all levels.
After visiting over 5 times since opening with a variety of friends and family. I booked for Father’s Day Sunday lunch with family. After being so impressed with Sunday lunch before we were disappointed by the amount of meat served, compared to the portions on our previous Sunday lunch visits. Also a lot of the vegetables were cold (mainly the greens, potatoes) and majority of the rest of the food including gravy was warm. This was really disappointing and due to being served by over 4 different staff, our concerns weren’t dealt with. I will visit again as I feel that it may be down to being last sitting on a very busy Father’s Day. But just disappointed after saying how good it was, to then take the parents in law who weren’t as impressed as we had been on previous visits.
There wasn’t a wide variety of choices throughout the three course menu, the food was extremely salty and didn’t get much food on plates for example lamb (which my partner had ) The chefs that we could see there was enough of them so there shouldn’t of been no faults with the food, however we could see a chef on his phone in the kitchen. The ice cream was melted when it came to be served to us which the staff said with the weather being warm, which was strange as isn’t ice-cream kept in a cold place We did nearly get over charged by £15.00, if my partner didn’t check the bill then we would of nearly ended up paying for it, this was due to different staff bringing out the food or either staff not checking tabs on what had been ordered. Overall we thought it was going to be excellent with it being owned by Blackwells which is good quality meat, however unfortunately we won’t be returning for any occasion
Gorgeous quirky and lovely staff! Menu very confusing and all dishes came out at different times, however she did mention this and said the plates would come once ready. We ordered chicken leg thinking it would be a chicken leg but it was a patte type dish made with chicken leg, it was delicious but not what I was expecting, I would recommend starters and mains as a choice on menu and also the £40 tasting menu would be definitely better £20 each as £40 a lot when you don’t know what’s coming, I would come again if menu was simpler
I love it in here. Because it’s under the ships, it’s quite small, but in a good way. It makes it feel quaint and cosy, and not too noisy or too busy. It also means the food comes quickly. The food is so tasty and they use local produce too. The price is decent and you get value for your money in terms of quality and flavour. They also do set menus here so it’s worth a visit, just to try the incredible food.
Fantastic service, staff and food. Such a unique quirky place which was amazing. A very “made to feel special” experience and Chris took time to chat and talk us through the history of the place. We had the taster menu which was beautiful and very filling indeed. The chef was very friendly and jovial too (big chap with a beard) the younger of the two. Highly recommended and a must visit. Well Done! Mr & Mrs Kevin Rich, Norton.
