There’s a reason Colleys has spent 25 years as one of Lechlade’s must-visit restaurants, with chef patron Donald Cartwright’s service and cuisine continuing to impress locals and visitors. The dedicated team at Colleys understand that on different days, and for different reasons, guests require flexibility and choice. From Tuesday to Friday the modern Brasserie & Grille menu offers classics alongside timeless Colleys favourites. The restaurant’s passion for singling out great plates and making them their own is evident, with guests returning time after time for steak burgers made in-house with duck fat buns and local ground steak, or beautifully crusted pies that, once tasted, are a lifelong yardstick for all other pies. The Brasserie at Colleys provides casual dining with attentive, friendly, knowledgeable service. Brasserie open Tuesday – Saturday lunch 12 – 2 p.m. Tuesday – Friday evening 6.30 – 9.30 p.m.Colleys is known throughout the South West for four-course ‘table for the evening’ set price menus. This classic menu is served on Friday and Saturday evenings. Everything from the daily baked breads through to the famous Colleys puddings is crafted by Donald’s longstanding brigade. Bookings are recommended as there is a limit to how many tables are available ‘for the evening’. Classic Colleys 4 course dinner Friday & Saturday – tables at 7.30 p.m.Sunday lunch at Colleys (tables at 12.30pm) sees a return to real roasting with overnight slow-cooked shoulder of Gloucester Old Spot pork, Scottish beef sirloin, duck fat potatoes and serious Yorkshire puddings. Bread & butter pudding or syrup sponge with custard will always remind you of how a family lunch should be – built on flavour, understanding and relaxation.

First time i had been there, They treated me and my partner very well, explained to me that they bring out the food to show you before making your choice - Brilliant service, amazing food and even better you can have 2 puddings! Highly recommended - Staff and food were brilliant! need to go back myself ASAP

Absolutely love this place. Only able to visit once a year as we live in Oxford but that's been for the last 6 years. We come for special occasions and several of them times we've brought family with us to enjoy the experience. I've never had a bad meal and every thing I have eaten is exceptional. We visited for...

For our wedding anniversary we went to Colleys for their 'Indian Street Food Bazaar' night. Epic stuff. A menu is provided for information rather than choice as everything on it is served to you. Four exquisite starters for the two of us two share - not so big as to spoil our appetites for the main courses (five of them!)... More

Dined here with our daughter and son-in-law - their Christmas Present to us, and what a wonderful present it turned out to be. Greeted at the door on arrival, coats taken, and shown to our seats in lovely surroundings. Every diner arrives at the same given time 7-7.30 and we all more or less finished at about 11.00.

A good restaurant with friendly staff and not too expensive. Good food and varied menu, particularly the deserts and well presented. And if you like gin, there are around 60 to choose from!

We arrived at 12.45 to be greeted by the staff which was a nice touch...... All 20 odd of us had a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon with a superb lunch and a few guests took advantage of the extra pud at no cost!
