This was my first visit here. I came with a couple of friends for Afternnon Tea. I was very impressed with the venue. The food itself was lovely and excellent value for money. The service was also excellent; all members of staff were very polite and attentive.

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.

    Unimpressed with slow and inattentive service. Meals took ages to arrive and were not very hot. We had a 50th birthday cake with us ( which we had advised restaurant in advance) only to be advised that unless 50% or more of us had a sweet £4. per head "Corkage" (£40.00 )would be charged which is outrageous.
    I will not be using this restaurant again.
