Yesterday I visited The Green Room in Colchester for the first time. Although the restaurant was very clean bright and modern, there are steps everywhere, so if you were at all disabled you would have difficulty in all the steps even in the w.c. !! The food was only reasonable,plates not over hot, you could have played a game of... More

My wife and I visited The Green Room for a Sunday lunch. I have to say that value for money it was terrible. They advertise that they use local butchers Frank Wrights, but the meat was tough and chewy and was served 2 really thin slices. The meal in general was bad, and the portions are so bad that I...

Very tasty food but the portions can be quite small. With the fish and chips you get around 5 large chips. The staff are friendly and always helpful. It can sometimes be empty depending on the time you go

It's not bad if you're grabbing a quick bite with your colleagues as I quite often do. The service can however be very slow, so choose your times very carefully!

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
