Had a fantastic lunch. Food was incredible. One of our party is vegan so had her own menu which was amazing and other restaurants will have a hard time matching it! Staff were attentive but mindful of the social distance rules. Can’t wait to come back again

How we have missed this place. Food was absolutely incredible. Service was attentive and helpful. Care has been taken with making sure guests and employees are safe. We had such a lovely evening for our anniversary. With all the chains in Colchester this really is a jewel to have. Highly recommend.

First meal after lockdown and I was rather anxious. Restaurant was spotless, cleaning process was brilliant, staff were wonderfully welcoming and put us at ease. Food and wine as exceptional as ever. We had a really lovely evening.

Our first meal out since lockdown, and it was fabulous. Thoughtful COVID-safe procedures in place which gave us confidence that the situation is being taken seriously. Food, as usual was excellent.

The quality of food was suberb; the relaxed atmosphere and knowledgeable, polite and astute waiting staff made this a fantastic meal out. Some of, if not the best food we have ever eaten.
