The temperature in the restaurant became very warm ( uncomfortable)with the sun on the window but too cold to open a window. Enjoyed the food, atmosphere and presentation, and will return. A good place to take friends for something a little different.

Fantastic experience. It was lovely to have lots of different textures and flavors in the food. As a group of four people we were able to order the whole menu and share. This gave us an opportunity to try things that we may not have ordered for ourselves. I will definitely return and would recommend it to others .

Our third visit to Grain did not disappoint. I always forget just how good the food is until I take my first bite. Heaven. And decently priced! Thank you for making our wedding anniversary memorable.

Excellent as ever. Sharing multiple dishes will always mean there one or two that don't deliver as well as the rest but this time they were all excellent. The staff are attentive and polite. A real treat in the limited Colchester offering.

As usual excellent food and service. As someone who has a dairy allergy it's always good to know that I have full confidence in the food that is served to me which is always full of great flavours & textures.

Second visit and the food was excellent again; well done the chefs. The waiting staff are efficient and friendly. I commented to my wife that it seems as if they have a share in the business, as they take such care. Have already recommended to all who listen!!

Excellent concept, brilliant tasty food, have eaten things I wouldn’t normally choose and have been very pleasantly surprised. My new favourite restaurant. Well done to all the team.
