My wife and I ate dinner at The Green Room on two nights running. The restaurant is modern and very pleasant with plenty of room around the tables. On both evenings the service was excellent.

On night one my wife began with Deep fried goats cheese - £6.00p and pronounced it very good. I chose Crispy squid - £6.50p. It was fresh, tender. cut in chunks and was very good indeed.

For mains we both decided upon Fillet steak which came with flat mushroom, tomato and french fries - £26.00p each. It was an excellent choice. A simple dish very well prepared. Nothing better.

The following night my wife began with Garlic bread - £4.00p and for mains ate a Pork Wellington - £15.00p. Both we much enjoyed. I repeated the meal I ate the previous evening with similar results.

On both nights we shared a bottle of 42 Baluarte - £24.50p which was very good value.

Would we go again - we did and we would again.

We were about 16 great friends who decided to surprise our darling friend turned sister Undiga in Colchester to celebrate her birthday.
It was truly well executed, we pre ordered our meals from a very fantastic and tasty meal selection!
The atmosphere and ambiance of the place was very welcoming and relaxing. the staff were very efficient and really helpful. we were made to feel special and welcome!
The drinks were great from a great variety. The set up for us as a group felt private and we did relax, have fun, made some noise as we were very joyful and it was great we could all get together.
The Green Room is very highly recommended , great selection of tasty meals in good portions and the drinks were good varieties.
The fact it was easily accessible , close to the car parks and the close proximity to the clubs with bars to spend the rest of the night was an added advantage. To complete what was a fantastic greatly appreciated successful surprise for Undiga,we went to Roberts bar to dance and burn the calories !!!

An old favourite for lunch. This place never disappoints, decent food and usually good service. The atmosphere may suffer when it's not busy and the service was slow this time.

Very friendly & helpful staff...I tried the Swordfish with potatoes & veg...was amazing. Dessert was Colchester pudding....bit like cold custard with a smattering of Eton Mess going on, bad description there!...but was a delicious pudding. Even the cider was good....but maybe due to CO2 shortages, wasn't quite as fizzy...
