Description: In the bustling village of Ockley you���ll find The Green Rooms, a warm and welcoming restaurant just oozing character both on and off the menu. The attractive restaurant and always popular conservatory offer views over a large enclosed garden which, when the sun appears, makes a beautiful spot for al fresco dining. The Green Rooms team aims to provide customers with the very best in home cooked, locally sourced food achieved through a menu which changes with the seasons. Local suppliers work closely with the kitchen and bar to ensure that not only is every dish a wonderful taste of the Surrey hills but that the drinks list ��� with wine supplied by Charles Henning and beers by W.J. King and Co ��� is a treat in itself.

We visited the Green Rooms last Sunday evening with family, and very much enjoyed their Sunday Lunch Menu. This is available until 8pm on Sundays and consists of a choice of 5 or 6 starters, for mains 4 different roasts (chicken, beef, lamb, pork) plus about another 6 alternatives such as beer battered fish and chips, hawaiian chicken, full or half rack of ribs, ham egg and chips etc and a veggie option, and then a choice of about 5 different desserts. Starters are priced £4-5, mains around £9 and desserts (I noted sticky toffee pudding!) about £4-5 if I recall. We also had a bottle of rose wine for £14.
4 of us ordered garlic butter king prawns for starter, which came as 5 very large king prawns in their shells, served with a chunky slice of brown bread, butter and side salad. The other person had whitebait. All very good both in terms of quality and size of portion. Then the mains came out and these were HUGE! 2 of us had roast dinners (one beef, one lamb) and these were deemed excellent, except for the roast potatoes which came as 2 large whole roasted potatoes and so were a bit hard still. Each roast dinner came with a big side dish containing a selection of nicely cooked veg - which would really have been sufficient for 3 people to share! One person had a full rack of ribs and didn't quite make it through the mammoth plateful, whilst the 80yr old grandmother with us just made it through her half rack which she said were marvellous, but had to abandon her chips in order to do so! I had a lovely piece of beer battered fish but again struggled to eat my chips which also came with a big pile of peas and small side salad.
So with all that, we stood no chance of sampling desserts! Next time we will start with mains and see if we have room for puds, but our advice would definitely be to arrive hungry!
The restaurant was very quiet when we were there, we imagine Sunday lunchtimes would be the more popular time, but we liked the stylish upmarket pub type decor and ambiance and will definitely visit again. Staff were friendly and helpful. There's plenty of space with more seating through into the conservatory area with views onto the garden.
