The Green Door at Woodbury provides the opportunity for diners to experience what is probably the best food in the locality. This little gem of a restaurant only seats about 20, with a further small room capable of providing private dining for a further 8. The quality of the food is excellent and, as all food is cooked freshly from base ingredients, the chef was happy to make changes to sauces etc. to satisfy the requirements of fussier customers.
We ordered our food and while we waiting for our starter were delighted when the waiter brought us out a delicious complimentary small pre-starter of lightly smoked fish moose with some olives. The different starters ordered by my wife and I were excellent, full of flavour and exquisitely presented. A complimentary Strawberry Sorbet full of flavour was served prior to the arrival of our main course to cleanse our palates.
I had selected fresh fillets of Brill cooked in garlic butter (instead of the lemon butter suggested on the menu) as my main course. Although portions may be considered small by diners with healthy appetites, the well balanced flavours made for an exquisite dining experience which more than adequately satisfied our hunger. Although by this time full, we almost forced ourselves to share a desert of Creme Brule just to satisfy our curiosity as to whether the chefs skills extended to the preparation of deserts. The Creme Brule was as good as I have sampled outside London. For the quality of food, prices were reasonable.
One downside is that the restaurant does not have any parking facilities and consequently diners must park on one of the nearby streets.
