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.

    Booked on line, which was very easy to do, they also asked for any instructions and we informed them we had someone with allergies to bell peppers. We were greeted on arrival, seated and served quickly, with an afternoon tea for 3. It was freshly made, lovely fresh crispy pastries and moist cakes and the glass of Prossecco topped off the birthday occasion. We were not hurried away but stayed for over 2 hours talking and enjoying the beautiful venue, a picturesque barn beautifully restored to keep the beams and flooring intact and a wonderful atmosphere. A special venue for a special occasion. The waiting staff were polite, fast and very accommodating, fantastic staff. We will be returning for an evening meal on one of their music nights when we will be able to "dress to the occasion". I have been to this venue for my 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary, in the summer, and this was fantastic because we booked the gallery for our meal and sat in the cobbled courtyard for our evening coffees - great.

    Regular clients. This was a family birthday party for 9. Only observation is that wine tends to be expensive otherwise Cannot fault in any way. We shall return very soon.

    Boxing Day booking with pre-ordered menu. Ambience excellent: exterior and interior. Food excellent must have a very good chef. Service appalling: the receptionist simply pointed and said "That's your table" - no attempt to show us to our table. Waited about ten minutes and no wine list or contact of any kind. I waylaid a passing waitress (who was very pleasant) and we then ordered wine. But it did not appear until we had nearly finished our starter. Later ordered a second glass of wine (red) I was brought white. Replaced eventually with the correct red. Ordered coffee - waited forever. Eventually my partner left our table and queried with a member of staff - he returned to say there was a problem with the coffee machine but it was coming: sometime later the waitress who had originally taken the coffee order brought it and said she was sorry she had forgotten! The bill came and we had been charged for two extra wines not just the correct one. This was rectified, we paid and left. We will not return.

    Tried to rip me off over £100 on drinks we never had

    We understand that Boxing Day is going to be a busy day, but we had long waits between courses which we weren’t to impressed with. We also felt that some plates were not sufficiently filled with one of our party having to play Oliver and ask for more than the one roast potato she was served with. Overall though, The Barn is a lovely restaurant and most of our party had a good experience so I would recommend you.
