After trawling Colchester looking for decent places to eat we were delighted to find this restaurant. It’s modern and well laid out with an interesting menu. When we arrived, having booked, we were seated and given menus. We then sat for a good 15 minutes...More

Thanks for your review...I'm glad you liked the food, we are very pleased with the new menu and we are getting a lot of positive comments. The service does sound a bit lacking and certainly not up to our usual standards so I will have...More

Nice to see a non chain menu and reality did not disappoint. Good menu choice and it really suited me as there is a lighter bites section and taster puds (still big portions)

Upmarket but not stuffy and non-franchise with extensive menu. Food is perfect but real ale drinkers limited to bottled Doom Bar or Adnams. Would be nice to have a decent draft. The staff are friendly and professional without being in your face.

The place was modern and fresh. The staff pleasant, polite and helpful. Our Sunday roast was beautifully cooked, the food was well presented and tasted good! Lacked "wow'ness" though but maybe we expected too much? Would happily go again!

Tried roasts in most of the places in Colchester and have to say the roast here was possibly one of the best for the price. The staff were friendly and attentive and the beer on tap tasted pretty good.

First of all the staff are very helpful and friendly. The ambience is good. The Sunday roast is acceptable/good, we had the chicken. The beer battered cod was very good. This brings me to the sirloin steak. It was inedible, although I did eat the...More
