    We visited this place again at its new location on commercial road and the food is as good as it's ever been. The staff are friendly and the food is good, I can't fault it at all. This is a family run local restaurant doing a great job of providing good Caribbean food in Swindon, yes there are a few small things that could improve, but this is not the Ritz, it's a local food joint serving up great food. If you are in the area then it's definitely worth a visit.

    Fantastic food. Was let down by the lack of stock but what they did have was amazing!! Oxtail was perfectly seasoned, curried goat had a subtle yet noticeable kick to it. Fried chicken was by far the best I've had and the banana cakes. ..... OH WOW! ! I strongly reccomend trying them, even if your not a fan of bananas just give it a go!!

    Myself and my son had passed by here many times and often wondered what it was like, so yesterday we went on in for dinner. The hut is about as basic as you need, the staff were very polite and friendly, the place was clean, the portions were large, the price and the food was good. This is a very basic Caribbean food hut serving good food at a good price, no frills and nothing more than than it set out to do. You get exactly what you pay for and we were more than happy with what we had and will definitely go back to try some more of the menu items.

    Went here for early dinner for my 60th birthday with the family. We're made to feel really welcome and had a great meal. The place is small and not plush but we knew that as we had already been for lunch the week before which was also excellent and really good value. If you like good Caribbean food at a reasonable price then try this place

    Great simple and authentic food and quick friendly service. Jerk has a nice strong kick without being overpowering

    Have passed this Jerk Shack many times and wondered what it was like; so took the plunge and went in last night with a friend. While we were waiting several folk came in for family sized take-aways which seems to be their major type of business. One customer told us that his Grandmother says the food tastes like her cooking! We had the goat curry with rice and peas which took me straight back to memories of meals out in the Island of Grenada. Large portions, tasty slow cooked meat and plenty of bones. Service was as laid back as one would expect and music was loud and good. Clean but basic decor. Will certainly return with my more adventurous foodie friends and in the meantime will try the takeaways.

    Manage your expectations: this is the Caribbean food equivalent of an English greasy spoon cafe, with great value prices to match. The offerings are basic but authentic, took me right back to similar places I'd visited in Central America. Service can be slow as it's one guy trying to do everything, but this is a very welcome addition to the area and to Swindon's food scene.

    The green house's curry goat is almost as good as my own 😀 generous fresh portions, polite and efficient staff. Thoroughly recommend this place

    Had just seen this new place on Swindonweb, always wanting to try something new. Had tried the Caribbean Moshan grill before but was not my thing, did not like the food. Luckily for me the food at the Green House is excellent. Good sized portions of some really tasty food. I ordered the steamed fish and the fried fish with dumplings and ackee with salt fish. We enjoyed every single mouthful. And you get a whole fish in each portion. So if you after something really tasty and good value this is the place to come, you will not regret it.

    Generous portions of caribbean food for very reasonable prices. I was pleasantly surpised how much fish and rice+beans I got for £7. There were quite a few bones in the fish, but that is just the nature of the dish. Service was pretty slow, but in fairness hey did warn us that some of things we ordered needed to be prepared. There may also have been an element of 'island time'! Note: You can park outside, but make sure you don't block the pavement or you will get a ticket!

    'stumbled across this relatively new eatery on a Saturday afternoon and had a warming experience. Warning of the palette - warming of the soul. Gavin (Chef Proprietor) comes over as a decent guy trying to earn a decent living and judging by the Goat curry, the fab apple cake and a darn good cuppa he's on the right road. As I said in my heading this food has soul - something you will NEVER experience in a chain type environment. Never. I also spoke with Matt, his current assistant - heart of Gold. go give it a try and I hope that your experience is a good as mine. Good Luck with the future plans Gavin

    Se vi piace pranzare in riva al fiume, è magari dopo pranzo anche un giro in barca, riverside è il posto adatto! Il cibo è discreto e il parcheggio a pagamento viene detratto dal conto.
