Newest Review: ... department store, the pub has been open for just over a year (it was previously called the Wig & Pen). Very tastefully decorated, the pub has comfy seating, low lighting and pictures of Colchester in times gone by on the walls.

Popped over for a brunch, ordered food, took them quite a while to make it, then they mad it wrong, although we told the bar lady what we want 3 times, never asked what side we want for the dish that comes with a side dish (soup, salad etc), they just brought it with salad, the roll itself was verry small. The all day breakfast was quite small :( cost £7.99... I was expecting it to be a bit bigger for this price, we ordered food at 12.20, before 12.00 AM the breakfast is only £2.99, so I do not really get why the price is so extremely different, eggs were overcooked, dry and burned.. Was not impressed at all.

Good food and value for money. Scenic place to visit.
