5 reviews of Green Note in English
I really love Green note, and have been going roughly once a month for the past couple (or more?!) years.
As mentioned, there are two parts to the venue. The front part, by the entrance, where you can almost always prebook a table for food. One year I had a birthday dinner, and this is where we sat. Ideal for groups who want a chat in cosy surroundings, you can still hear music in the 2nd room.
This 2nd room is especially nice, as said exposed brick a bar at the back etc. If going for music I like to have a listen at what’s on first. Their web page does often have links to the artists myspace/youtube videos etc. This way you know what you’re in for! I’ve always enjoyed what I listen too, but I think a bit of research is key. It is a small venue and out of respect to the musicians you need to be quiet while they perfom in this room.
A great way to do that is to keep your mouth busy chomping on delicious food! Tappas sharing platter for two is just under £20. It’s tasty, good value, veggie food with excellent vegan options (I am vegan – check the hummus especially, and the samosas with chutney. Yum yum yum!). They even make the dreaded veggie “salad” exciting, and the nightly special is more often than not vegan and delish – a chick pea curry, a butternut and beatroot risotto, veggie sausages with potato and veg, it changes all the time. The mains all work out at just £10 per person. Excellent value!
They can advise which wines are vegan, and have lovely beer and cider options. And cocktails…
To save the best for last – the pudding. A hearty piece of vegan cheesecake for under £5! My firend normally has the chocolate brownie with ice cream (if I had one thing to be upset about it would be that this is not a vegan option… pretty minor on the scale of things!) Yes – this does mean dinner and pudding comes to less than £15. My friend and I normally split a bottle of wine and with service (Which I’ve never begrudged paying as the staff are helpful and lovely!) our meal comes to a little over £25 each. We leave feeling very full and pretty “merry”….
Have seen some excellent acts here, including Ed Sheeran (before he “made it big!”), Norton Money, Josephine Oniyama, Kal Lavelle and so many more…. regularly see Johnny Berliner at the monthly Folkadot with his often hilarious “Science Songs” (though he’s very capabale of the warm hearted genuine music too!) – Quite frankly it’s one of those things that light up month for us. I’ll continue to go back as often as I can. One of those truely special places hidden in London.
A small restaurant offering vegetarian tapas, I visited the Green Note to see David Thomas Broughton perform a gig.
We arrived early and although the restaurant was not yet open, the staff were accomodating and let us in anyway, giving us a table in the front room of the restaurant and offering friendly and efficient service.
The range of food was good, and unlike some vegetarian fare had an interesting selection. I am not vegetarian and neither is my gig buddy, but we enjoyed our dinner very much indeed. This was accompanied by a very nice bottle of wine from the wine list, and following our meal we entered the back room to listen to the gig.
All the tables were taken so we ended up sitting cross legged on the floor, but the gig was good nonetheless and the atmosphere was great - a very intimate venue but not in an annoyingly cramped way.
All in all a very enjoyable experience, I’d definitely visit again, for a gig or just for a nice evening meal.
Mmm. I heard such good things about this place before I went there. It’s certainly intimate - small and comfy with lots of cushions etc but perhaps a little intimidating when you’re in such close proximity to everyone else. This is especially the case if you even make the slightest whisper while someone is performing and the entire room turns on you… I think I had a bad experience here because the music that was on the night I went was truly dreadful - boring singer, boring songs. But I hear the food is very nice and if the music was good it’d probably be a really good place to chill out.
This little vegetarian cafe/bar is situated on parkway in Camden very close to the Dublin Castle. It was a pleasure to go here, and pay £5 to listen to the folk acts which were on on this particular night. The artists were all exceptionally talented, and the place itself was atmospheric, dimly lit, intimate and comfy. I easily sat there with my drink for a few hours or so listening. It's a small place, but this adds to the intimate vibe. Go here to have some nice veggy food, aswell as some live (and great) entertainment.
This is a really cool acoustic live music venue. It also doubles as a vegetarian restaurant (though I haven't tried the food in here). I came here to see the UK blues guitarist Joe Crompton, and it was just fantastic. The back room, where the music is, is small and dark, and it makes for a great atmosphere. It's cosy and intimate, yet gets really lively. People are really friendly in here - we were even invited to a house party by some random people we were chatting to (between the numbers - the room is so small that you can't really talk much while the musicians are playing, or some people might get annoyed). It closes early but you'll leave on a real high, ready to rock the town.
