I visited here with my parents quite a while ago and have been meaning to review. We waited in the reception area for quite some time before anyone realised we were waiting for a table, someone whizzed past us and said "I don't have time at this minute sorry!" at this point we should have walked out as they were...

My wife and I went here on a Saturday evening and were delighted with the whole experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive. The restaurant has a very relaxing atmosphere and the bistro-style food was superb – my wife is a very strict vegetarian and had a good choice on the menu.

Ten of us went to the Green room just before Christmas and I was a little wary as I had heard mixed reviews . I think the online photos were not very complementary it made the place look as though it was lacking atmosphere. I was very pleasantly surprised, our table was good and you didn't feel as though the... More

We enjoyed a lovely lunch here on Christmas Eve. We have been to the Green Room restaurant many times for both evening and lunch time meals and have always enjoyed meals of a high standard. The restaurant is comfortable and nicely decorated and the staff are always pleasant and helpful.

Amazing! cant praise this place enough. Been here for mother-in-law's 50th as well as mine & my partner's engagement. Both times staff bent over backwards to make everything special, and let us put up banners, balloons, etc etc. and even helped take lots of family photographs. Staff very patient, kind, helpful. Lovely place! Definitely go back again & again!

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...
