About Church Street Tavern
A great place to meet up, have fun and be well looked after. Ground floor bar serving craft beer, eclectic wine, cocktails, tea and coffee. First flour restaurant serving seasonal food from an ever changing menu. Quick light lunches, rare breed steak, private dining and events.
Initially we had to wait quite a bit for attention before we went over to ask for someone to take our pre-dinner drinks order, but once that happened service was very good. Fab food and wine as ever!
We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we entered the restaurant. The starters were delicious, particularly the chicken terrine and the steaks for the main course were cooked to perfection. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting Colchester.
Lovely restaurant ambience . Very efficient service. Menu especially starters offered a very diverse range
Excellent unhurried lunch with a great menu choice in such a lovely enviroment. The decor is so relaxing. Will not hesitate to return and also spread the word on a perfect venue. We even got served by the boss!
Outstanding meal and service. Nov 7
It was a very nice meal. My only slight complaint would be the 10% service charge. Our party spent over £300 with you and then we have to add over £30 more to pay your staff for doing their jobs.
First time visit and was very pleased we all came. Both bar staff and restaurant staff were lovely and the food was delicious. The atmosphere and decor of the place was great, we shall definitely be visiting again!
Great evening, jazz wonderfully nostalgic, shared platters were well planned. All phenomenal value. Don't think of changing anything! Looking out for the next one.
Great place. Excellent service, food and drink. Lovely atmosphere.
We were taking a couple of friends for dinner and we hoping they would like the the church tavern as much as we do, at the end of our meal we asked for a verdict, they were delighted with everything about the place so there is another two people who will be back.Great, thankyou, Malcolm
Delicious food, great atmosphere
Steak very under cooked so sent back, meanwhile they left my wife’s meal instead of taking it and keeping it warm so she had finished by the time mine came back. Didn’t had the. Wine we ordered. Very small discount for the inconvenience. Steak was good when the new one came out but for £25 I hoped a sirloin would be good. Disappointed as the previous 2 visits had been excellent.
Great evening. Super atmosphere food and service. Thank you. We will be back. Chris
Fabulous food and friendly, attentive staff.
So pleased to have found you.
The service was really great. We were not made to feel rushed even though we were slow to order and find what we wanted. Quality of the food was fantastic. Nothing was too much effort for your staff. Well done on great staff and food! We will be coming back.
Very friendly staff and very helpful couldn’t fault the service thought it was excellent
Held my 40th birthday meal with you and all 15 guests on the table loved their food. The service was very friendly and quick too. Thanks, Richard
Fabulous jazz evening. Great trio. Superb value for money. I wish that the lighting could have stayed more subdued throughout the evening as it improved the event. The wait for our third platter ,40 minutes, a little excessive. The same plates, for us BUT new plates produced for the next table by the same waiter, unusual. However the glass of English sparkling wine a very pleasant touch for our anniversary, a delight. Many thanks Charlotte, who was the only person who told us what we were about to sample.
Absolutely wonderful surprise. Went for Sunday roast with my family and it was brilliant from start to finish. We were served by a Gabriella Boorn and she was wonderful, making sure we were happy and explaining everything on the menu. Cannot suggest this restaurant enough, genuinely lovely experience x
The four of us had a fantastic Sunday lunch. Great staff and food was fab. I have allergies, and so long as some advance notice is given the chef is fantastically accommodating.
Great food and attentive friendly service as always, thank you!
Lovely meal hosting a client and colleagues. Service was excellent from start to finish. Ambience is perfect and I love the chill out area by the bar with the eclectic mix of furnishings. I would highly recommend this place both on a business and personal basis.
