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.
Ambiance is lively and love the quirky decor. Regular customer but disappointed in service as mix up with steaks. One Medium rare another medium well but not served to correct diner!
Had a really nice meal on Saturday night service was attentive without being over the top. Will definitely be coming back soon
Fantastic meal, with excellent friendly service in great surroundings. We will defiantly becoming regulars
Waitress was great,food and drink great we have been here before and will be back soon
First time we had been and we were very impressed with the food and presentation. We had Sunday lunch in the first floor restaurant. Would certainly go again and recommend.
Superb in every respect. Faultless. Lovely menu with something for everyone. Aperitifs and oysters to start. Lamb hot-pot and plaice were excellent. And indebted to member of staff who brought a forgotten bag to the cinema.
Really lovely relaxed lunch with old friends.
Excellent will use pre theatre again thank you.
Church street tavern never disappoints! The food was delicious, the service was friendly, polite, considerate, not too fussy. We ordered a dessert, which sadly was not up to par at all- something was really rather wrong with it. The server was very kind and asked us why we hadn't enjoyed it. Chef agreed the dish was not right and the matter was dealt with very pleasantly. I love this restaurant and hope it features for lots of special evenings to come in my life. Colchester, like many towns, has many chain-restaurants, but we are very lucky to have Church Street Tavern.
Had a fabulous Saturday evening for our wedding meal. Thank you Matt and staff. Fantastic night. David and Nicola.
Great meal and outstanding drink selection, some good local lagers
I celebrated my birthday at Church Street Tavern and absolutely loved it. Firstly, the ambience was absolutely wonderful, just what I wanted for my birthday celebration. The food was unbelievably tasty and the service was exceptional. I do love my wine and I must admit the wine that we were served was great. Besides that, I believe they have THE best bloody mary in Colchester. So much love for this place.
Fabulous food and exemplary service. Best meal out in a long time!
The corkage on a Wednesday is a great idea for mid-week. Amazing steak as always. Not particularly busy so atmosphere not great.
Absolutely beautiful dinner for my husbands birthday last night. Lovely venue & amazing food, perfect service. Will be recommending to everyone! Thank you CST we'll be back x
Love eating & drink at Church Street Tavern, seasonal cooking at its best. Staff are lovely, food is tasty, good value for money, superb wine list and amazing afters! Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone
Great Sunday lunch.
All great, many thanks to all, see you again soon Clive & Eileen
Lovely bar and restaurant x
Great service, a lovely atmosphere and delicious food.
Unfortunately on the Wednesday lunchtime we visited we were the only customers which seriously affected the ambience. Additionally a lack of some fish from supplier limited the menu. Fish and mussels in our curried cod were well cooked but the dish was very under spiced and not very well defined. Service was good and rest of the food was ok but not particularly memorable.
The waitress we had was lovely and friendly. My only gripe is I was looking forward to the crab linguine but they had run out. There was confusion with some of the meals but the waitress sorted it very well.
Just lovely - food and atmosphere
Fantastic as always.
