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.
