Lunch menu a tasty bargain

We have eaten lunch here on a number of occasions over the last 2 years & been impressed by the quality of the food on their special lunch menu (£10.00 for 2 courses, £12.50 for 3 courses.) On a recent visit I had a houmous starter & a very tasty beef stir-fry main course, the beef strips were... read more

You can choose to eat alfresco, (&smoke), also a silver service restaurant with an excellent selection of meat and seafood dishes. The service is unhurried, but you ca also pop in for drinks only, if you wish. Would heartily recommend it. On the way to the Castle.

When we visit Colchester we always make a bee line for this place Recommend two for ten pounds the meals were ample for us as we only wanted a snack to fill us up before shopping,topped up with alcoholic drinks cost us under twenty pounds,but what we like is sitting outside near castle grounds and watching the world go by...

We went in for a light bite having visited the the Castle. It was not warm enough to sit outside but there are two sections inside, one for the restaurant and one for sandwiches etc. Very good choice of light meals/sandwiches and good choice of drinks, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Would recommend.

I went with my parents as was visiting Colchester. And we had been before but not in a while and remembered it as good. Every course was either bland or poor. I complained about my lobster and barely got an acknowledgment to the fact it was dry and rubbery. Every seafood dish was very overcooked the only dish they got... More

First time i have eaten here and it was lovely. I had the lobster Linguine which was just perfect. My only criticism would be - when we went out in to the patio area out the back we were watched not once but 3 times to see if we had done a runner, this i found insulting and suggest they... More

We eat at Mussis and always have a fantastic experience. The Owners, staff, Food and venue are great for either a meal for 2 or family/group get together. The choice of menu is always exciting and they use local produce which is what we want.

Popped in here for lunch with a friend and was very impressed. The service was very good, waitresses were attentive but not pushy, the food was lovely and there was plenty of food envy with other customers which is always a good sign for me. It wasn't particularly busy which was actually rather nice. I shall definitely be coming back... More
