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.

Lovely flavour sum meal and nicely presented. Staff very friendly and extremely professional. The Green Room was fantastically decorated and finished, a... More

My mum had chosen this restaurant for her birthday meal as she had heard good things from friends. We were right to go as it was great. We were made to feel welcome from the start and service was excellent throughout. The menu had interesting choices without being too vast or pretentious. All 7 of us (5 adults, 2 children)... More

Pre show meal and very warm welcome with a decent menu. Food well presented but uninspiring. Good value though for pre theatre discount.

We were staying in the North Hill Hotel and decided to eat in the hotel restaurant which is the Green Room. Often hotel meals are poor quality and overly expensive becaus they have a captive audience but this was totally different. Firstly I must mention the service which was very friendly and attentive. The menu is not overly large but... More

Visited to celebrate a family birthday. Service relaxed and friendly without being over the top; pleasant convivial atmosphere. Not a huge choice of food (but supplemented by a "Specials" board), many ingredients locally sourced and everyone in the party was able to choose something they liked. Food served promptly, presentation excellent and most importantly tasted wonderful - the brill in... More
