There were four of us work friends on a night out and this restaurant didn't disappoint. Although it was a busy Saturday, the food was excellent. We all ordered different dishes, they were well presented with ample portions and attention was paid to the way each requested their meet cooked. Lovely friendly atmosphere, super decor.

The thing I value the most about this place is the service. The food fresh and local and is excellent, the service is outstanding and the ambience is very relaxed. The waiters can tell you about the food, how it's cooked and where it is sourced. They are at hand to enhance your experience and yet not in your face.... More

Having enjoyed previous visits with the same group of friends our latest visit was a bit disappointing. The staff were friendly but the service was slow and as others have noted inattentive, especially on arrival and waiting to order. Like Roger C the food was ok to good but certainly not great and it appeared to my party that the... More

A bit of a flat experience. Service was good if a bit inexperienced (and pretty inattentive towards the end). Food was ok to good but nothing I couldn't get at hundreds of similar places. Just lacked ambience and anything special to comment on. So, I'll leave it there.

We were visiting family in Colchester and wanted to take them out to celebrate. Having read the reviews online we settled on The Green Room in Colchester as it was very near our hotel. We were all very impressed with the friendly staff, delicious food and nice airy dining room. If you like seafood the Seafood Platter is a definite... More

When here for a Sunday lunch and they did a special or either chicken or beef but we chose the regular menu due to it being a lovely fine day and a bit too hot for a roast. You can sit in the main restaurant or indoor terrace and the setting is delightful. The whole meal was very good and... More

What a lovely new menu! Having spent some time wandering around the town looking at menus, this one stood out so we went on our first night in the town. We were not disappointed. From the moment we went in, the friendly staff made us feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. There was a special offer on thnew... More

Food cooked and presented to perfection, with friendly service. Beer and cider chilled for a summer’s evening. Large tables, so no fussing over where to put the dishes. Right in the center of town. Excellent for gluten free dining with clear menu labels. Very reasonable prices and no automatically added gratuity. Refreshingly pleasant experience all round. It is part of... More

The Green Room is a fabulous restaurant near the High Street in Colchester. The cuisine is splendid with a wide variety of dishes to choose from - after several visits here we have never been disappointed hence this review. And when you add great value and great service, this place is hard to beat.
