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.
My new favourite place to either just have a drink or have dinner in Colchester. Such a lovely friendly atmosphere, coupled with great food, drink and service.
The decor doesn’t seem as if it has a theme, quite a mixture of styles - I preferred it’s former more modern but restrained style. My trout was a huge portion therefore not surprisingly undercooked in the thickest part, and I think the courgette soup would have been better without the additional pieces of courgette. The others really enjoyed their choices, a very pleasant evening.
Our first visit and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. What fab food, ambience, surroundings and service. We will definitely be back. Colchester has been a culinary desert for years, but not anymore. Thank you..
Staff very friendly and helpful! We will definitely come back again!
Hands down the best restaurant in the area. Never anything but exceptional food, friendly and prompt service and a unique, relaxing atmosphere.
We felt very welcome and the level of attention was high. We were pleased to be there early as it was getting very busy by the time we left. Food was lovely and the home made ice cream was superb! We will be back!
Fantastic food in a really lovely restaurant. Would highly recommend
Great evening. Food was fabulous and absolutely loved the cocktails. The post dinner Manhattan was great!
Absolutely amazing food and great service from staff. Would highly recommend to friends. Matt was really helpful with the reservation.
Great steak. Great wine
Perfect spot just away from the main road. Came early and had a gin and tonic before being seated. Barman was a bit abrupt however didn’t let it offend us. Dining area is lovely, great atmosphere and staff very attentive. I had the cuttlefish starter which was incredible. I need the crab mayonnaise recipe! My partner is vegan so had corvette soup which was lovely. For mains the sea trout was cooked to perfection and samphire was to die for. Vegan main wasn’t too great though. Aubergine was really tasty and flatbread was good however no almonds found and pickled onion/cabbage on top was too much and overpowering taking away flavours from the rest of the dish. Overall food was of a very high quality though. Little hidden gem of Colchester
Already recommended to a friend! Staff were incredibly accommodating and kind.
Really accommodating. Great food and no waiting around. Perfect! Thank you.
Great food & service as always.
Good service. Even bothered to contact me about a change in facilities. Care about their customers. Excellent. Try the Jansons Temptation! What a find on the menu
Great early evening family get-together. Food was delicious - clean plates by all! Jannsons Temptation was a clear favourite side. Coffee with petit fours also went down well :)
great food on the first floor, exceptional value for the quality.
really helpful staff - helped me out with making my meal special
Pleasant environment, knowledgeable, friendly and efficient staff and well cooked and presented light food before a trip to The Mercury Theatre. Second visit and would gladly go again.
We went for a celebration dinner and as always were not disappointed. Relaxed atmosphere and great food
Very nice evening service good yet a little slow.
Love everything about this place - the décor, the staff, the food - always spot on.
Pleasant surroundings & food
Lovely place, great food, service and atmosphere
Had a lovely meal upstairs - steak as per usual and it was lovely. The place is full of chatter yet never seems loud which is great for when eating dinner.
