Went with friends the food was excellent as was the service. Will definitely be going again. The staff all learning their trade behaved professionally and were very courteous. The food was presented in an excellent way and was cooked to perfection. There was also a nice comfortable ambience to the restaurant.

This is one of the few places that we have never been disappointed by. The food is modern, fresh and very well prepared. The restaurant is clean airy and welcoming. The staff are eger to make sure that you are have a enjoyable visit. We haven't always made table reservations but I would advise it to avoid disappointment.

Went here for the BBQ event eat as much as you want and we did. The staff were very attentive and relaxed. Everyone eating seemed to be relaxed and enjoying the event. A big thumbs up to all the staff, including the kitchen staff who came out to ask how people enjoyed it . A credit to all involved.

Best in St Helens by a mile. Yes the menu is limited & the silver service waitresses are a little too keen but the food is exceptional & at a very reasonable price. Wine is well priced also. Never had a bad meal from Sat eve, Sun lunch or Vals night

We made another visit to colours last night. It never disappoints us. The students who serve are very polite and courteous drinks come quickly when ordered. The food was delicious and beautifully presented its hard to believe that the chefs preparing the food are so young and in training. I can't believe it was only half full on a Saturday... More

Just had a brilliant evening at Colours with food provided by guest chef Paul Askew. 6 courses plus coffee all for £30 was the most wonderful value. Fantastic food and great atmosphere - well done yet again Colours! Without doubt the best quality and best value in St Helens.

Dined at Colours many times now and never disappointed. Latest visit was Sunday 3rd April for lunch. Taking advantage of a great deal by being on their mailing list we were given a free glass of wine and a desert. Which constituted a three course meal with Coffee and mint for £11.99 per person. Choice of 4/5 starters, 5/6 main... More
