“Extremely disappointed. The menu is very poorly...”

Written on: 04/03/2011

Extremely disappointed. The menu is very poorly executed and instead of getting a slightly pretentious dish done well, we were served an embarrassingly bad attempt at dishes that were obviously too much for the kitchen staff to handle. The service however, was very good and the serving staff very friendly; but not a good enough reason to return. Instead of trying to convince us you are something you are not, please try cooking food at a level that you can handle… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/12/2010

I just can't fault this restaurant. That's my opening statement! I've eaten in some excellent restaurants around the world and Grahams On The Green is up there with the best of them. I have just come home from a lovely meal there with my wife and personally thanked Lorna, our host, on the way out.

I've seen a few of these bad reviews on here and can't imagine it being the same place!! The staff are polite and attentive, when my wife didn't like her starter (her taste, not the food!) it was… Read Full Review

Written on: 24/09/2010 by gracie15 (1 review written)

Staff are excellent, especially a man named Jake, he was very friendly and had time to talk to you, he was absolutely excellent with a brilliant sense of humour. The food is beautiful, absolutely perfect in taste and presentation, the scenery is wonderful, duck pond, a lovely green and my favourite-willow trees. The restaurant itself is also a treat, it's layout is esquisite and it is furnished adaquately, the overall presentation and experience is tremendous, well worth a visit. but hands off… Read Full Review

Written on: 19/08/2010

For the second time in two weeks I ate at this restaurant in the evening. On both occasions I couldn't fault it. We were greeted well and looked after extremely well during the evening. The food was delicious and beautifully presented, the wine was perfect and the bill perfectly reasonable. I would have no hesitation in recommending it, wholehearteldy. Reading some of the other reviews on this site I wonder whether they were actually in the same restaurant!… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/06/2010

We recently visited for a birthday celebration. The manageress was welcoming but her staff seemed hassled and kept bumping into our chairs due to the poor layout (I'd recommend diners insist on a table around the edge of the room, not in the middle). The quality of the food varied enormously: the starters were adequate, the main course abysmal but the desserts (accompanied by a free shot of wine), excellent. At the end of the evening the bill had been miscalculated by over £50 and when we… Read Full Review

Written on: 14/02/2010

We visited on 13th February , we arrived 10 mins early to be grunted at by the lady manager as our table wasnt ready, there was nowhere to stand and our coats were not taken. we were left standing by the bar in the way of all waiting staff, and had to keep moving out of their way as they carried trays of drinks, with our coats over our arms for 15 mins. Then we sat down. My chair was touching the mans behind me !! our coats still not taken were placed over the back of our chairs !! The staff… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/11/2009

The welcome and service we have always found polite and helpful. Unpretentious, not too formal but not too relaxed.
The menu is fairly short but our food has always been very good. I am not a vegetarian but their choices are limited. Last time I was there the vegetarian moussaka was very good however.
On one anniversary the Italian waiter brought us complementary flutes of champagne.
We have had a number of very relaxed an enjoyable meals there. When booking check that you can have the table… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/08/2009

I think the mid week menu is excellent value, but the service is very hit and miss . waited 20 minutes for drinks , then starter and main course almost on top of each other. I notice they always sit some parties near the kitchen, even if you have booked weeks in advance. hmm, was not happy about that. some members of staff are a touch arrogant and not welcoming, in my opinion. shame , cos I relaly like the setting and the food and the value, but I don't like being treated as an inconvenince… Read Full Review

I regularly visit this restaurant and the food is absolutely fantastic. It is beautifully presented and cooked, and incredibly good value for money.
It is simply one of the best restaurants around.

Written on: 06/05/2007 by Jackiebillhokks (1 review written)

Graham's on the Green Writtle was a case of the emperor's new clothes I'm afraid. Very popular but the food just isn't up to scratch. Overpriced, tries too hard (some weird flavor combinations), waitresses polite but they got our order wrong (watch out for the service charge), very poor choice for vegetarians (and kids) which was a bit embarrassing as we had 3 vegetarians in our party especially as we rang up beforehand to ask about the vegetarian options and got the usual reply of 'do they… Read Full Review
