Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Colchester

Pizza Hut Restaurants

Turner Rise Retail Park, Turner Rd, Mile End, Colchester CO4 5JR, UK – 01206 546545

Just loved it. The restaurant was full as you would expect on a Saturday at lunch time. Staff could not be more friendly and accommodating. Service was fast and the cola endless. Two large pizzas with all the salad you can eat plus all the cola you can drink cost just over £40. Not cheap by any means but for a treat just right.

I have mixed feelings about this place. Polite and friendly staff. Shame it doesn't really match the food and cleanliness. Have always come of a lunchtime regularly. I always have the lunch meal deal and always found the pizzas to be quite dry and not really very appealing. Very basic. The salad is the best bit. Staff seem to really catch up oncr customers finish and leave to get tables cleaned and prepared for the next customer. Find they do struggle when its busy.


11-13 Head St, Colchester CO1 1NX, UK – 01206 760344

Very nice tasting and experience. I went for lunch with my nephew and we had a delicous lunch meals. The service is fantastic and the waitresses are very polite, helpful, cheerful and professionals.

It's nandos. Love it or loath it it's always busy and staff are great. Love the hotter dishes and halloumi on the side

Pizza Express

Victoria Chambers, 1 St Runwald St, Colchester CO1 1HF, UK – 01206 760680

Latest update: Persuaded to go as son wanted to for his birthday. Was seated after 10-15 minutes, and enjoyed a lovely meal. As you can see from my below initial review, customer service can be a bit hit and miss. First review: After being left at the door like a tool for 10 minutes (granted, it was busy) with two children close to crying, the waitress tried to seat the group behind me, then said she'd try and fit us in. There were 4 tables vacant at this stage, and when asked if I'd booked (I hadn't, fair enough) the tone changed to condescension. The real kicker was 'I can seat you in 40 minutes?' with small kids who have clearly already passed the threshold of their short patience?!? She seemed surprised when we immediately left.

Slow service, dirty tables and tired furnishings, this Pizza Express seems to be struggling to keep up with the standards of other Pizza Express outlets. It was full abd the premises appeared a but small for a town as large as Colchester. Time for some investment...
