Nestled in idyllic countryside, The Barn Brasserie delivers informal dining in an award-winning 16th-century timber barn. Skilfully renovated, The Barn’s sublime contemporary styling effortlessly blends with its traditional thatched roof and vintage oak beams.

Supreme British cuisine and fine wines from around the globe can be enjoyed with a backdrop of picturesque landscaped gardens and specially commissioned sculptures. Characterised by rustic oak beams which line the high-vaulted ceiling, The Barn Brasserie restaurant in Colchester is a buzzing venue for Sunday roasts.

Gems on The Barn Brasserie menu include fillet steak Rossini with celeriac potato rosti and foie gras and a sumptuous roast duck breast with star anise fondant potato, pak choi and plum jus. Palate-refreshing sweet creations like lime mousse and elderflower sorbet sit alongside indulgences, like double chocolate brownie with Belgian chocolate sauce and Hadley’s vanilla ice cream, and a sophisticated hazelnut and chocolate parfait with Irish whiskey and toffee sauce.

Luxuriating in beautiful Essex countryside, yet close to Colchester, The Barn hosts live music and provides a delightful setting for family celebrations, a unique wedding venue, and a subtly impressive space for business meetings. Marks Tey Rail Station is just a 5-minute drive away.

    Very disappointing visit to the Barn, having been there many times over recent years. There was a wedding taking place, which meant normal diners were housed in a small side room; service from many temporary staff was virtually non-existent; and the overall ambience, which is a real strength of the Barn, was lost. This being a birthday meal, it really was a disappointment. On the positive side, the food was of a very good standard as always. However, waiting half an hour for our initial drinks order to be taken, a further 20 minutes for it to be fulfilled - on one of the warmest nights of the year - really set the tone. The root cause appeared to be a lack of adequate supervision but so inattentive were the staff that I could have left without paying and had to seek out someone in the kitchens to get my bill settled.

    My experiences in the past have always been good but I would say don't book if your date clashes with something else going on there.
