For the second year running, Church Street Tavern is the only Colchester restaurant rated in the Good Food Guide – not bad when you consider there are around 40+ restaurants in the town. Here’s a snippet of what they said:
‘A tasty proposition if you’re looking for some serious food hereabouts…….On-trend ingredients and big flavours come together in good looking plates…….The wine list is notable for its catholic choice by the glass or carafe, plus its covetable ‘desert island’ bin ends’
This recognition of our team’s hard work and commitment is great to receive and with all your wonderful feedback, we will keep pushing.
