Tucked away in a cosy nook of Colchester is a venue at the forefront of modern cuisine within the area. Grain offers something unrivalled and unique to all of its gleeful diners, serving small plates that are bursting with the most sumptuous flavours. Diners are invited to create their own tasting menu, categorised into four main sections: garden, water, land and sweet, which change with the seasons, but never compromise on quality.
Fantastic experience... didn’t try any alcohol but the water was nice ... As I was first in @ 18:30 on a Wed night difficult to judge atmosphere... Service was excellent... provided advice on choices and very attentive... Would definitely return next time I am back in Colch
Perfection on every level as usual! We brought friends with 100% confidence in you all for a wonderful evening of food and drinks! Great to see you all, especially Joshua ( even though it was a one -off)!!! Many thanks for making NYE really special again! See you very soon. Thank you all for your dedication to gastronomy and service. So fortunate to have you all in Colchester! Have a well deserved rest!
Grain is our favourite restaurant because we are never disappointed with the food or service. The food is full of surprises and of a very high standard, we also like the rustic charm of the place which makes you feel very relaxed. We cannot speak too highly of the waiting on staff who are friendly but at the same time professional.
Fantastic evening, I'm sure no one on the night went home hungry I couldn't manage all my courses! Really good value for a New Years Eve night out.
We really enjoyed our lunch today. A relaxed affair with good food and friendly service. Looking forward very much to spending New Years Eve with you for more of the same.
Excellent evening in Grain with friends. Lived up to our expectations. Food was really delicious.
We held our company Christmas party at Grain on 20th December 2019 and we can highly recommend it. We were a party of 13: the food was excellent and presented to a high standard - indeed, it's refreshing for a restaurant to maintain standards and not slip into the Christmas party mentality of bland offerings. Well done to the team at Grain. Merry Christmas!
Another fantastic evening at Grain. Amazing food, impeccable service! Never disappointed- thank you
Superb experience. Fantastic food, excellent service and friendly, informative staff. Best restaurant in Colchester.
Great knowledgeable staff, food so well presented, great flavours. Best in town
The food just keeps on getting better. Can’t fault this establishment.
Waited a long time to come here after so many recommendations and they were not wrong. From the moment we arrived greeted by personal terms they knew who we were, to the moment we left after a superb meal the whole experience was just brilliant. Thanks to all who served us and cooked for us WE WILL RETURN!
You just seem to be getting better!
Our very favorite restaurant in Colchester - innovative, delicious, very reasonably priced, unpretentious but still festive atmosphere!
Awesome as always, I cannot praise the team enough, the only downside will be when you get your Michelin star it’ll be harder to get a table! Keep up the fantastic work and thank you!!
Awesome food, a real find
The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. They were really good about my boyfriend being gluten free too.
Fantastic food, brilliant service. Will definitely be back
Very good food and service.
The beetroot soup was amazing! And all the other dishes as good as normal. The nice thing about this place is that the menu is constantly changing and there is always something new to try out.
Exceptional unexpected flavours given to very ordinary ingredients, a lot of love and thought goes into the cooking. Service is good with all staff having good knowledge of the menu and ingredients. Highly recommended
Gorgeous food and good service as always
Fantastic food and service, particularly the duck dish within the land section of the menu
As always the food and service were exemplary. My favourite course was the cauliflower katsu which i could literally have eaten four of.
