I met some friends for lunch, and as ever we went to the most relaxing place in town to get good food and a lovely atmosphere. As ever, the service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. I highly recommend this place. During the day they are relaxed about children and dogs inside and never hurry you along. The food always arrives promptly to allow for those on a lunch break.

Loved this pub, by far my favorite in Colchester. Most drinks were brewed locally, not branded and there is a cider bar where you can try some lovely flavors. It's not a food pub but they are happy for you to take your own in (it's surrounded by an array of takeaways). Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Definitely, recommend this place (the grapefruit gin is superb!)

Fantastic place to go for a cheeky pint and burger. Beer options are on point with local ales as well as craft selection. The beer garden is lovely and has whittled away many an hour there with a couple of pints and a paper (of which they provide a selection). The food is of a good quality but I'm a big fan of their burgers. Give it a try.
