Bars & Pubs in Colchester

Whether you live in Colchester or are a visitor to our historic town, you will be pleased to know that there is a variety of quality Bars & Pubs in Colchester waiting to be explored.

Situated in Head Street, the Nineteen Bar & Restaurant came to Colchester during March 2008 and is a lively bar during the evening and a family friendly restaurant during the day. Open seven days a week, they pride themselves on a warm and friendly service with great food and drink that can be enjoyed all day long.

Only a short walk away and located in the High Street near the entrance to Castle Park, The Castle Inn has a very popular beer garden and makes for a great place to sit during the summer while watching the world go by. A very nice touch is the continental style bar that opens out onto the beer garden.

Bars & Pubs in Colchester come in all guises. Once a former bank building, the Qube Bar & Grill in Crouch Street is a cool & sophisticated lounge bar downstairs and an intimate and cosy restaurant upstairs. In the restaurant you can witness your food being cooked in the open plan kitchen and then you can enjoy an evening in the lounge bar while being entertained by a selection of DJís and Live Musicians.

The Hole in the Wall, this name was adopted by the pub because of the hole that was created to accommodate extra apartments in the pub, and to give a better view of the new Great Eastern Railway. Standing on top of the only remaining Roman gateway, the Balkerne Gate, this pub has a lively atmosphere and is very popular with younger people but is definitely worth a visit.

New to Colchester and situated between Osborne Street and Vineyard Gate is the Candy bar. We currently have little information on this new establishment, but it looks like it will become one of the most popular bars Colchester has to offer. Watch this space!

Colchesterís oldest Inn, The Rose and Crown Hotel in East Street, dates back to the 14th century and has been lovingly restored throughout previous years. The Tudor bar with its roaring fire is an ideal place to sit and relax with a glass of wine.

There are too many Bars & Pubs in Colchester to include in just one article, but rest assured, whether youíre looking for a place to refuel while exploring the many sites of our town during the day, or you prefer the nightlife, and are out for an enjoyable and fun evening, you are sure to have a great time.
