The Court House

Harwich Rd, Great Bromley, Colchester CO7 7JG, UK – 01206 250322

Excellent restaurant. Good value, excellent food, good menu choices and great service. Have eaten their twice in March and May 2018 both excellent. Got permission to bring dog inside as well.

Visited for Sunday lunch. Our first time at this establishment and had a very nice experience. Very good and ample dinner served by very friendly staff. Loverly atmosphere and excellent cleanliness. This is the sort of place that you try to find over and above all the bistro style places that seem to exist these days. Will be back ( possibly next week).

The service in this restaurant was very good, can be said a rare thing these days! The four of us where greeted, seated and cared for, poppadoms arrived swiftly along with refreshments. We all had something different from the menu, presentation was pleasing along with the quality of the food. We will be back. A big thank you to the staff for your excellent service, much appreciated.

Very nice food, good-sized servings on hot plates. Waiters polite but not obsequious, never felt rushed. There was one slight issue, a very limited vegan choice for one of our party but, with advice from the manager she had an enjoyable meal. I would recommend this place for a reasonably priced Indian meal.

First time in here and the pub side of it was really nice. Lovely fireplace with a wing back chair if you fancy it. They have a little garden out the back although it was off limits when we went. The food was alot better than I'd expected to be honest. Didn't seem to be the run of the mill food I'd assumed it would be. The antipasti was lovely and we had some whitebait just to add something else to the table, very pleased! We will be back for sure.

Fresh food, good selection of drinks and great garden with space for kids to play in

The Olive Branch

Small and cosy Syrian restaurant. First time going there, welcomed by the owner who is friendly with family members I went with. They catered to all dietary requests, considering vegan and gluten free options and were happy to customise meals. Very reasonable pricing for great quality fresh and healthy food. Also very nice to have diverse dining options in the town. I highly recommend.

Great little vegetarian place. No booze licence mind. Interesting north African food, quite similar to Turkish in some respects. Picked turnip and cabbage was great on a hot day!

Horse and Groom Wivenhoe

55 The Cross, Wivenhoe, Colchester CO7 9QL, UK – 01206 824928

Absolutely brilliant, great beer and staff. Traditional pub where the staff and customers talk to each other. Come in on your own and leave with friends I love to go here when I visit family. Home cooked food at lunchtime and decent music at all times, no TV except special occasions. Regular darts teams, a real traditional pub not a brewery manufactured one. If you are in Wivenhoe go here its great especially if you like Adnams ale, its well looked after and not expensive. Don't expect airs and graces or flashy furniture but on the plus side the management run a tight ship and you won't get any hassle or scumbags hassling you. Please be aware that it is run like a traditional pub and is not open all day please see the website for opening times. If you are in the Village o would recommend you go here for weekday lunch or take the family for a drink they have good parking and a decent garden.

Good selection of Ales. Very friendly staff who gave our rambling group a warm welcome. Thanks especially to the landlady who said we can eat our sandwiches in the pub garden. A bright clean traditional pub.

Kings Arms Frating

Main Rd, Colchester CO7 7DJ, UK – 01206 250277

Came here to see a rock band who were amazing however 2 songs in they were asked to play and sing quieter. Really why book it if you don't like loud rock and roll. It was simply laughable. prices are good but seating was only sofas comfortable but trying too hard. Huge garden really nice. Good night shame the band were not allowed to do exactly what a rock and roll band do.

Had a light lunch today, the food was really good. The outside, the bar and the toilets were lovely and clean. Would have been 5☆ had they served real chips rather than frozen, we worked in the pub trade for many years and allways served "propper" chips, you would be surprised as to how many more compliments you get with fresh over frozen. That said we will defo be back.
