Had a lovely evening. The restaurant is very comfortable and service was great.

Food was also very nice apart from our dessert which was unfortunately disappointing. We had profiteroles and they were minute in size and over baked (very hard).

The Green Room is without doubt one of the best restaurants in Colchester.

Greeted with a warm welcome and the service throughout was excellent. Couldn’t fault the food, portions exactly the right size and the taster deserts are a great idea for when you just want a “little something”.

I went with a friend forSunday lunch and as always, we had a very happy relaxed time with good food. We especially enjoy the taster desserts which are the just the right size to finish a meal.

Standard remains high when so many other local restaurants are unpredictable or have closed. Would happily take a demanding friend there as easily as someone who just wants an easy lunchtime eat.

This was a really memorable evening at your restaurant with excellent food and wine, perfect service in comfortable surroundings. It would have been outstanding had it not been for an extremely loud party of at least 10 people seated behind us with one guy who must have traded in his voice box for a foghorn. Consequently at times it was hard to have a conversation. If possible such loud selfish parties should be seated away from the main restaurant area. This is not a complaint - just an observation

The food was adequate but not tasty. Our meal of 2 courses each for 2 of us plus only one gin and tonic at £48 was expensive, I thought. Only A La Carte was available.

The food was disappointing - I ordered Lamb steak which was so salty I couldn't eat it, my potatoes were underdone and the samphire was oily and very salty. My husband ordered pork wellington and was very overdone and the meat was very tough. I informed the staff and they were very apologetic, and I couldn't fault the customer service. If I was to visit Colchester again, I would probably try an alternative restaurant.

Disappointed that menu was less to our taste than previously. My husband visited the facilities before we left and saw the specials board. No-one had mentioned any other dishes to us and it was unfortunate that I could have enjoyed a better choice if I had realised there was further choices available.

We had a lovely Sunday lunch here , food was very good and would definatley revisit . what a shame that we were sat with three separate families with small children one of whom cryed and screamed all through lunch and the other two families children had annoyingly loud video games that they were playing at the table . Most annoying !

Bloody Good Value for money easy booking via the opentable app which makes my life easier as I can just book and not speak to anyone over the phone. That way they can’t get your name wrong lol

This restaurant was recommended by a friend and we must say, it lived up to the quality of the recommendation. We were greeted with a smile as we entered the restaurant. Our waitress was just wonderful. The restaurant was stylishly decorated and the chairs were very comfortable to sit on. The food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation, very pleasing. We both enjoyed our three course meals, we are now looking forward to our next visit, which will be for Sunday lunch. What a great place!
