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.
I really liked the food and the ambience, but I do feel that the service is rather slow - seeing that there were only 3 tables occupied including our table in our room, and 2 tables in the accompanying room! We arrived at 12.35 pm for lunch but did not finish until 2.20 pm! Also the luncheon coffee was £2.50 ... rather expensive for a small cup! It was all delicious though and thank you!
The food was delicious. The service was welcoming, friendly and very efficient. I would definitely recommend this venue for dinner pre theatre.
Such a gorgeous meal, wonderful service & beautiful surroundings, absolutely faultless, thank you so much
Loved the new menu. Food great as usual, will certainly be back again.
Food and service excellent as always. Will always come back to CST and bring friends/family when they come to visit.
It was our 2nd visit in the last few months and we were delighted on all counts. It's just great having a bar and restaurant of this quality in Colchester.
Lovely setting with well executed, creative food. Service was a good balance of personal and professional. We had a super evening, thank you.
Wonderful food, great value for money and amazing service. Wine was also very good
Great service and food as usual.
The food and ambience were excellent and the service was friendly and attentive. We really enjoyed our food in the restaurant and were pleased to have decided to book. We have already recommended this restaurant to friends. Thanks!
Had a really lovely meal with a friend this week. Really lovely food, good cocktails and lovely cosy atmosphere. Service was great too.
Our first visit. Food was good Excellent service/ atmosphere. Our only complaint was was waiting at the bar (20 mins at least) and each drink we ordered at the table was about the same time. I appreciate you were busy; which is a good thing, however I do feel you tables booked should be a priority. Apart from this a good evening Thank you. Kind regards Tracy Birks
Lovely lunch, mussels were lovely! Nice chilled atmosphere and good service. Will definitely return. Thanks
Our fourth visit here, three upstairs and once in the bar. Every occassion has been absolutely splendid; superb food and great staff. Nothing too much trouble. Thoroughly recommended.
Top service as always. Superb ambience. Very good food at reasonable prices
Very slow service. The duck, when ordering, we were told was pink. It wasn’t. But on the whole still fairly good. I think I’d give them another chance.
We were the only 2 customers in the restaurant on the Bank Holiday Sunday evening , hence the mark for atmosphere!! We were well looked after , thanks!!
Had a lovely evening with very good food and wine and excellent warm and friendly service. We also got to taste one of the 'new menu' puddings - thank you Ben!
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!
