Very small but excellent bar. Good alternative crowd often playing music from rock/metal through to all sorts of classics. Good selection of spirits, some lagers and ales. Part of the three wise monkeys and twisters.

Dancing the night away with Barbie whilst Freddie plays the hits. Start of something magical

Na-Ree Thai Restaurant

10 North Hill, Colchester CO1 1DZ, UK – 01206 560633

Superb, Thai food! The pork laarb was particularly good and the service was speedy and friendly. The restaurant is a little cramped but in terms of value for money you'll rarely come across a better deal.

The food is exceptional here. I would highly recommend the Tom yum soup. Lovely customer service too.

Middletons Steakhouse and Grill Colchester

19-20 North Hill, Colchester CO1 1DZ, UK – 01206 542854

Food was really good- couldn't fault it and didn't want to stop eating. Good value for money. I had the mushroom Wellington- amazing! However, service was not great. The first half of the table had finished their starters before the second half got theirs. Took a long time for plates to be cleared and also to get the bill. All mistakes remedied with lots of apologies given- it was his first day to be fair! They did take very good care of our disabled party member to their credit. I'm giving it 5 stars as I wouldn't hesitate to go back as the quality of food made up for the service.

Very good pricing. Very good atmosphere. Very good food! We've been coming for a few times and not had any problems. Definitely recommend booking on the off chance they are packed.

Aburi Japanese Restaurant

19 Short Wyre St, Colchester CO1 1LN, UK – 01206 769226

Nice relaxed atmosphere. Had a Rahman, my verdict, excellent. Staff friendly and polite. Well worth the visit. Next time in Colchester, will pay a return visit.

Fantastic food and service. Probably some of the best Japanese food I've had in the UK so far. Do note it might be a bit on the pricey side.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Colchester area

China Chef

73 Crouch St, Colchester CO3 3EZ, UK – 01206 546953

Wonderful Chinese. Always get a takeaway from here. The only downfall is that you sometimes have to ring multiple times to get through to someone (I once had to call 15 times over and over again), but is well worth the hassle.

Extremely good Chinese restaurant. Food is superb. Not cheap but you get what you pay for.

Embassy Oriental Buffet

2 Balkerne Hill, Colchester CO3 3AA, UK – 01206 572266

All you can eat Chinese buffet with lots of different choices so everyone should find something to their taste. Drinks are not included and are over priced. Can get very busy at peak times and it's a cash only venue.

We have been before for lunch but this was our first time for dinner and it was amazing. 3 adults and 4 children and we all came away very happy and very very full. Lots of choices and good quality.

Noodle Zone Restaurant

19-21 Crouch St, Colchester CO3 3EN, UK – 01206 575111

Great food, service and location. We opted for the lunch time special £7.50 for a two course lunch. We were not disappointed. I had the vegetable spring rolls followed by the vegetable and tofu soup. Hubby had the pork ribs followed by chicken noodles. Both of us were full. Fantastic value for money. It's the first time we have been here, we will be back.

A great place to eat. Good Malaysian menu. Food well presented. Some unusual dishes to try out. Chefs special a must. The staff are very friendly and remember you . Great place to eat before or after a trip to the Odeon just around the corner.

Always fresh and tasty. We order on a regular basis.

Bengal Diner Indian Restaurant

Fox Street, Ardleigh, Colchester CO7 7PP, UK – 01206 868711

A large group of us went here for all you can eat on a early on a Sunday. We were the only ones in the restaurant. It was cold and no one took off there coats. The food was not as hot as it should of been when it arrived and despite us being the only ones there the staff were not around and it’s probably the least I have even eaten at something that is all you can eat. It worked out to be an expensive mediocre meal.

Lovely food great family atmosphere. Definitely recommend.

119-121 Crouch St, Colchester CO3 3HA, UK – 01206 571555

Great restaurant. Rich depth of flavour. Can't wait to go back.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

ASK Italian

16 North Hill, Colchester CO1 1DZ, UK – 01206 366379

The food is good and the price is reasonable, especially when you have a voucher. Perfect place for a catch up with friends. Sometimes you take pot luck with the service, either too efficient that you feel like you've just eaten a course before another arrives or you've left waiting for ages and have to go and hunt someone down to get the bill.

A very enjoyable evening. A tasty menu with the option of a vegan menu too for those that tell everyone about their life choices. All in all no one had any complaints.


12 Headgate, Colchester CO3 3BT, UK – 01206 576816

Foods always good here if you like Italian. Service is a bit slow but the staff are polite and entertaining. Menu has decent choice, especially when it comes to drinks. Overall can be quite pricey but if you head on their website and grab a good deal it can save you a lot of money. Always happy when I eat here.

Awesome food! Vegetarian selection is amazing and they will literally cook what you want within reason! The wait was a reasonable time. Staff were pleasant and clean. Everything was amazing!

Prezzo Colchester

1 Culver St E, Colchester CO1 1LD, UK – 01206 573388

Welcoming staff, good service, good food, but no air conditioning on a very warm day, only a couple of fans. This was ok for me, but not adequate for others. Good to know it's there; will visit again.

Honestly nothing bad about it it's just it's not my favourite restaurant but don't get me wrong I love Italian💖

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants


22 Trinity St, Colchester CO1 1JN, UK – 01206 367676

We have been here twice and both food and service is second to none! Absolutely love it. Our two boys love Lou Lou's breakfast and keeps begging us to take them back! It is a must if you are in Colchester. X

Love this little restaurant. Food is lovey. Would recommend it to anyone

The Nourish Co.

23 Crouch St, Colchester CO3 3EN, UK

First time I have been to Nourish. Great little place. Friendly staff and very tasty food. I had the satay salad. Really tasty and filling. The energy ball is so so moorish. I'll definitely be returning.

Absolutely delicious food & drink. Welcoming atmosphere. The staff are always willing to help and did I mention the food & drinks are delicious.

wagamama colchester

141-142 High St, Colchester CO1 1PG, UK – 01206 911041

The service was slow although the restaurant wasn't particularly busy. I didn't find the staff very friendly and the service was pretty poor. However, the food was delicious, as soon as we finished our main course we were presented with the bill and no coffee or tea to finish with. 😕

Excellent vegan food. The Chef told me how to cook tofu to taste like his. Good service. Free green tea

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

Twisters Bar Colchester

45 North Hill, Colchester CO1 1PY, UK – 01206 500204

Bigger than it looks from the outside, good music and good vibe, unfortunately the price here is a bit steep and you have to work your way around people just to get to the loo.

Drinks drinks drinks. Loads of cocktails and I recommend getting a teapot. The do a deal on Thursdays called "toss the boss" - order your drinks, flip a coin, if you win it's half price.

Waikiki Bar & Club

33 Crouch St, Colchester CO3 3EN, UK – 01244 341576

Not a fantastic place. No food available and no price list displayed for normal drinks, only cocktails.

Great energetic club with brilliant drinks and amazing scenery

After Office Hours

128 High St, Colchester CO1 1SP, UK – 01206 564367

Great cocktails 2 4 1, but slow bar service

Nice location for a few drinks and a bit of a boogie.
