In March 2018, after anonymous inspection, we were thrilled to be awarded Two Rosettes for Culinary Excellence from The AA. Our team have been working extremely hard, striving each day for creating exciting, fresh and consistent food. Their efforts fully merit this award. This adds to our Good Food Guide and Michelin Guide entries and the only establishment in Colchester to whole all three recommendations!
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.
After three and a bit years of being open, we’ve built up a great loyal following so we’d like to say THANK YOU by introducing a small loyalty scheme. Dine with us 6 times within a 12 month period, spending a minimum of £15* each time, and receive lunch on us to the value of £25. Next time you’re in, we’ll issue your card and first stamp!
