The Grill Room

The Grill Room Restaurant

The Grill Room is one of the most elegant Colchester restaurants and a meat lover’s paradise; the quality marbled Dedham Vale Beef steaks have been matured for 21- 28 days before cooking, making them juicy, succulent and bursting with flavour. Vegetarians need not worry as there is also a great meat-free menu that includes a delicious butternut squash risotto.

With a strong emphasis on using local, seasonal products and meat, The Grill Room is a great place to experience a taste of Essex.

Please note: The Grill Room is currently closed. If you’re interested in hosting a private dining event please, call us on 01621 862 330.
