Nothing more to say than outstanding in every aspect. Felt safe and welcomed. Food was delicious and great value for money.
Have been a few times now always been excellent but this was the best all round experience I have had not just in the Green Room but Colchester as a whole.
Excellent job keeping up standards in trying times. Will be back again for sure

Heated greenhouse outside was very good idea, as we were from mixed households. It was very cosy and the heater was small but worked well as was the light.

We ate outside in one of the greenhouses. Staff very friendly and efficient. Food cooked very well, 3 of us had the fish and chips which was very good and I had vegetarian option lentil and aubergine mousaka which was very tasty. Puds were lovely. Overall a very pleasant dining experience

The evening was just as we had hoped: a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, good food and excellent service. On top of this the Covid-19 protections were the best I have seen, without in any way detracting from a great evening.

We had a lovely evening at the Green Room, the restaurant is set up so there are screens dividing the tables so as well as privacy you are protected from being too close to others. The atmosphere was peaceful and calm and the waiting staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was delicious so will definitely be going back again, VERY impressed!!!!

Had a fabulous Sunday lunch recently with a friend. Staff very friendly & attentive, food is delicious - good quality / fresh ingredients. The restaurant looks great even with the Covid shield around the tables for protection. I could not have felt safer - everything clean. I cannot recommend The Green Room enough & will certainly return again soon. Nice to see so many customers supporting this business during this difficult period. I hope this continues for them & all the other eating establishments in Colchester. Thank you The Green Room for a fabulous experience. Oh, & the price - fantastic value for money! 10/10.
