  • Stunning gig venue in the local church. Excellent acoustics, decent beer selection and extremely pleasant / helpful staff!
  • Amazing food - ALWAYS... As a vegetarian going out with non-veggie friends, there are few places i would go without checking the menu. However, this is one of them. The food is brilliant, and more such good quality it is incredibly good value. The sister restaurant at the Sun Inn in Dedham is also worth a visit.
  • Fantastic little venue, hosts a variety of music, comedy and theatrical events, as well as expos and festivals such as the camra beer festival. The venue itself is an old church and the tower is believed to be the source of 'humpty dumpty' as there was a royalist cannon mounted on its bell tower during the English civil.
  • I love coming here. A variety of events are hosted here and the atmosphere is amazing.
  • Fab place. Lots if cool stuff on. And is an old church. What's not to like?

A short train ride from London, Colchester is a university and working town. Hotels in the town center are near the main attractions, but for less expensive lodging consider a room near the university campus, which is situated in a tree-filled parkland.
