Restaurant in Colchester, Essex

Our Poplar restaurant seats up to 227 (136 inside, 26 outside and 65 in our conservatory). The conservatory overlooks the play area, gardens and Poplar Miniature Railway, making it a beautiful spot to enjoy a meal or a quick cup of coffee all year round.

We serve breakfast Monday to Saturday from 8.30am (9.30am on Sundays) until 11.30am, lunch from 11.30am Monday to Sunday and a delicious range of homemade cakes, scones and cream teas throughout the day. Food is served daily until 3:00pm with coffee and cake served until 4:30pm on Monday to Saturday and 3.30pm on Sundays.

With a seasonally menu offering a wide selection of homemade favourites using local produce our chefs also create daily specials, allowing them to showcase their creative side. If you fancy a sweet treat, how about a slice of our delicious cake. (Also available to order whole with twenty-four hours notice.)


Our spacious restaurant is perfect for club meets, from a quick coffee stop to a sit-down lunch. You can book a table in our restaurant, but bookings for the same day need to be made before 11:00am and Afternoon Tea bookings must be at least one day in advance. We can cater for breakfast, lunch and Afternoon Tea or just simply a coffee stop.
