With a stunning vaulted ceiling lined with rustic exposed beams, The Barn dates back to the 16th century, and has been lovingly converted yet retains its rural charm. Enjoy a selection of classic and modern gastro dishes, including children's menus, making this a versatile setting for the whole family.

The Barn menu spans the entire day, and starts off with all-day breakfasts and brunch options, with dishes like American-style pancakes with smoked back bacon and maple syrup. The a la carte menu includes vegan dishes like carrot and beetroot terrine with homemade bread and grape chutney, with hearty mains including whole lobster with garlic butter and skinny fries. There are generous sharing platters that are perfect for groups, and hearty burgers and steaks from the grill.

Enjoy classic afternoon teas at The Barn in Colchester, while the dessert menu features other British flavours, with choices like apple and fig crumble with cardamom and rose water ice cream. There is also a diverse wine list served, with bottles from the old and new worlds.

A beautifully picturesque rural setting, The Barn is a charming spot for all-day dining, and sits 5 minutes' drive from Marks Tey Rail Station.

    Beautiful old building that I have dined at a few times before. Food was great, cooked to perfection. Service was quick without being too pushy. I loved the steak while my wife had the butternut squash. Her only complaint was that there wasn't even of the meal.

    Beautiful restaurant. Lovely bar area with good service for drinks. Unfortunately they forgot our vegetables so our food was not hot when they arrived. I did tell the waitress the lamb rump was very fatty but to no avail! M
