River Green Café

The St, Trowse Newton, Norwich NR14 8AH

River Green Café is a unique restaurant, café and events venue, featuring the best vegetarian and vegan food in an informal atmosphere. Easy to find, River Green nestles in lovely village of Trowse, yet is just twenty minutes walk from the city centre of Norwich.

Combining informal service with a smile in a lively atmosphere, with a great range of organic wine, local beers and ciders, River Green is a relaxing place to eat, drink and meet friends.

During the daytime River Green is a relaxed café serving food and drinks (enjoy a drink on our patio overlooking Trowse village green), whilst in the evening and Sunday daytime we offer a fine dining menu developed by Jan Wise and Chris Avery, two of our owners. 

We serve internationally inspired vegetarian and vegan food, including organic and locally sourced specials.  Run by (but not just for) vegetarians, our fresh and imaginative dishes are mostly prepared daily on the premises.  We aim to delight all our customers and special diets are normally not an issue, please get in touch.

Exciting Changes at River Green Cafe

We would like to let you know that Norwich chef, entrepreneur and long-time vegetarian Chris Avey will be joining Jan and Mike as joint owner and head chef of the business in the new year. Chris will be working full time at the restaurant and will be focusing on the development of a new menu and the ongoing management of the kitchen.


Chris is looking forward to joining the management team at River Green and helping to develop a new menu that will focus strongly on freshly cooked seasonal foods. We also aim to create stronger links with local suppliers of good quality vegetarian and vegan food.

The kitchen has recently undergone a refurbishment and we have a new spring menu!
