Excellent value 3 course Boxing Day lunch. Prawn cocktail, 3 roast carvery, Christmas pudding & black forest sundae all lovely. A big thankyou to Dave, Maia & the kitchen team for 2 x takeaway 3 course Boxing Day meals for my unwell elderly parents. Fantastic service you couldn't have been more helpful. See you all in the New Year. Thank you.

Be arrived about 1:30 Saturday afternoon. Ordered coffee. Then we ordered some drinks and then we ordered food. Coffee came out then we ordered drinks. The food came out and she was so busy. She'd forgot drinks but she soon sorted them out for us ,not a problem. Food was good. I had chicken and bacon with BBQ sauce with chips. My partner had pi, mashed potato, peas. We asked for chips instead of mashed potato and they changed it straight away. Very good service. Food was lovely. The waitress looked after us really well. We were there till 4:00. It was a good afternoon. If your ever on your way to Colchester and you want to quit bite to eat, popping to see the staff,x

Trio of lies. Service was a little slow despite restaurant being half empty. It looked like they were under staffed. Unfortunately i didnt get the servers name but she was wonderful, helpful and did it with a smile. Some of the food however was terrible, anything that had been fried like the fish and scampi looked ok and what you would expect from that level of restaurant. The lasagne was near on slop and the trio of pies with creamy mash was so poor, 3 dry lumps of mash and limp pies. Not even the gravy was warm i can only guess the microwave power had been accidently turned to low. I actually felt embarrassed for the chef.(i have added a photo) This used to always be half decent go to for a quick and easy meal now i wouldnt advise it.

Servicing the Premier Inn it is adjacent to, the Balkerne is a busy pub with lots of workers using the place. The menu reflects the changing times for example you now have to pay 49p for a naan bread where it used to be included in the meal. The menu and beer/lager options are all decent and the staff are really excellent.
