My husband and I have eaten here quite a few times on our own and the service and the food is very good from a brasserie standard - good quick business lunch too. They do excellent homemade soups which to me is a real wow factor. Good menu that embraces a lot of european fusion food. Super lunch/dinner however if... More

Have been here twice now for special occasion lunches - never disappoints. The staff are always helpful and friendly. The food is served beautifully and adequate portion sizes are always served. On our latest lunch there was 18 of us and all lunches were served together - worth a visit

People have raved about this place, but to be honest it was, average. Nothing was bad but nothing was special it just seemed a little lazy cooking, things just seemed to be done to a minimum on the cooking front without real care and attention, or flavour to be honest. Not one we will go back to, would not put... More

Have had several great meals here but today's lunch was not one of them. The staff paid no attention and I could not tell if they were overstretched or just uniterested. The menu was poor and what type of place has no chocolate on the dessert menu. I doubt I'll be back

Having never been to The Green Room before I was both surprised and impressed when I walked in on a "first date". Clean, and modern in appearance the decour perfectly matched the attitude of the staff. They were attentive without being intrusive, only interrupting the flow of conversation once. Our waitress was a trainee, being taught by a manager. Some... More

We visited the Green Room on a week night to celebrate a birthday. It was a lovely meal - simple and delicious. The menu was not overwhelming and the service was attentive and yet relaxed. This was not my first visit to the Green Room and I was not disappointed by the quality of the food. One small point -... More

I visited the green room with my family on a Sunday evening after wandering around colchester realising not many places were open! And we will definitely be back. The food was great and it's a really lovely setting, the courtyard area in bright and airy without the chill of being outdoors. Reasonable prices and good size portions. The girls serving... More

We chose this restaurant due to its location (we had family staying in town) & we weren't disappointed. Service was easy, friendly & attentive. A great menu with lots to choose from & a decent wine list too. The food was well cooked & delicious.

We had our anniversary at The Green room last night. First of all we sat at the bar area by the window and had a drink before our meal, great atmosphere and a nice start to the meal. Lovely flavour sum meal and nicely presented. Staff very friendly and extremely professional. The Green Room was fantastically decorated and finished, a... More
