It's our 4th time to colours and we normally love it. Today however the service has let us down. Watching staff crowd and dance messing about is not what they are here to learn. The management of serving courses has be badly structured. It's start stop then next service for 60 people. Being close to last on the circuit really... More

The Service from start to finish was excellent & the food was delicious (we wouldn't have expected anything different). Highly recommend colours for dinner, if it's burns night or not - but burns...

Went for my best friends birthday in June and really enjoyed the whole experience. Had to wait only for around 15 minutes (enough time for a cheeky wine) before we were seated and our host and the food were equally excellent! would go again!

Have been here quite a few times and each time is spot on! The restaurant is well presented and easily accessible to wheelchair users too. Everything within is on one flat level. There is a nice spacious bar area prior to being shown to your table. There is always a varied choice on the menu and the food presentation is... More

Wanted somewhere special for my daughter's 13th birthday (Christmas week) and couldn't have picked a better place. They were really accommodating as my daughter and her friends were seated on a table away from us adults. One of the adults was in a wheelchair but the table was easily accessible. Great food and lovely atmosphere all contributed to a wonderful... More

Colours Restaurant pulled out the stops this week to serve the best Christmas food in St. Helens by far. We were looked after beautifully by the staff and the food was exceptional. We will definitely be going back for our next get together. A big thank you to all the team for giving us a very special evening!
