Attentive staff but not the most interesting vegetarian options. Nice ambiance and enjoyed the desserts. Sadly felt that the veg options were uninspired and lacking in flavour. No parking except on the street.

As always, the staff at the Green Room looked after us well. Food was excellent - I had Sunday roast, which was faultless with plenty of veg - and staff were very attentive and happy for us to take our time as a family group celebrating a birthday. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend. My partner and I stayed for the night... More

We stopped here for lunch and chose from the lunchtime menu, which had plenty of options and was reasonably priced. There was a pleasant atmosphere, the service was excellent and the food arrived promptly.

Was in Colchester for a work meeting and visited the Green Room for dinner. It is a decent enough place with a lovely menu choice that is reasonably priced. Staff were friendly and the modern look of the place meant it was clean, presentable and welcoming. The food was ok and well presented.

The green room is a lovely restaurant, what I would call traditional and done well. It is probably the only restaurant that survived the recession and that is because its good! Just the best roast dinners and has a lovely uncluttered dining area...beautiful.....

The restaurant never fails us. Staff are always friendly and the menu is good. I usually have the steak because they just cook it so perfectly to my liking. If you like your deserts make sure you leave room, they are well worth it

Thank you for a wonderful lunch today. I don't know of any other establishment who would have accommodated my sausage & mash hankering despite it not being on the menu! Service was fabulous today, so warm, friendly & professional. And my special dish was absolutely spot on. Thank you

Went for a Sunday lunch with the family. We all had nibbles to start which took a while and the hummus was not good at all and went untouched. Our mains arrived, four roasts, two were incorrect. But great portions and very tasty. The second waitress was very helpful and sorted everything out very quickly.

Thank Chloe Amber T
