We liked the friendly atmosphere, good service and the very tasty food!
The steak was superb and of course the Malva pudding, a great favorite in SA.The Castle beer was cold and clear.

We ate here 2 nights running mainly because there were no other options. The surf and turf can be recommended, the fish and chips was average, the macaroni cheese was interesting. Very cheap and nice SA beer BUT the service was unbelievably slow - we waited 45 mins for Macaroni cheese :-( Still, the staff were apologetic.

For those staying in the village, Grunters is really your only option. It is more of a bar than a restaurant so i think that some of the criticism is a bit unjustified. I had a very good mixed grill and my wife enjoyed her lasagne. It is also good value for money. So don't go there expecting cordon bleu cooking or silver service, just a hearty meal amongst the locals.

Stay away! Or go and visit if you like worse than junk food!It is not food they serve - I've had a fish - dry and mistreated, topped with a cheese sauce (which you could not find on the card). Never ever again!

If you find yourself in Colchester then the dining options are limited and Grunters is a good option.
