About us

Looking for truly great British pub food, the Bricklayer's offers a fantastic lunchtime selection from Panini's and Sandwiches, to Ham, Egg & Chips, Cod or Scampi & Chips, Indian or Thai Curry, daily specials like Bubble and Squeek or there is the irresistable Sunday Roast, which is a real plate full! Food is available Monday to Sunday (Excluding Saturdays or Bank Holidays) from 12:00 to 14:00 (Mon-Fri) and 12:00 to 15:00 (Sun only).

Situated in Bergholt Road, Colchester, Essex, they are only a short walk from the railway station (North Station) or a short drive from Colchester Town Centre or the A12 (Colchester North) and has a car park for around 20 cars.

The pub is quite large and has a Saloon Bar, Public Bar, Conservatory and outside Beer Garden and an undercover heated smoking area, connecting to the pub car park, which backs on to Mile End Road.

Wanted to thank Lee and his team in allowing us to hold a wage for our Dad on Tuesday. Food and service and the relaxed atmosphere the team provided was simply perfect and such a lovely tribute to Eric who had drank in this pub on many an occasion.. Thank you again Martin and Anita.

Somewhat dead vibes in this pub but it was the only one near the station. My ale was acceptable though had suspiciously colourful bubbles in the foam ( bit of cleaning liquid in pipes maybe ). If they improved the lighting and got rid of the 90s carpets it would be a nice pub

Great selection of drinks and food. Looks very nice in here with a small beer garden and undercover smoking area. Didn't eat this time but I definitely will next time.

Under new management and refurbished. Smart, modern feel to the place, with that vintage kind of pub vibe. Still has a good selection of lagers and real ales. Staff have been friendly and inviting, as they always were. Serves food now throughout the day. Just tucked into salt and pepper squid and a bacon burger myself and was really pleased I did. Limited menu, but that should help keep it simple and good. As a commuter and a local I'm really pleased that I can now have a pub meal on the way home, along with a decent pint (or two). Still manages to keep that pub feeling even with serving food. Still a drinkers pub at its heart. Looking forward to my next visit.
