Situated inside a historic building on Chapel Street North in the town centre, originally used as a Sunday school, The Warehouse Bar & Kitchen has been tastefully restored, still retaining some of the building’s original features like the church pews, repurposed for dining. With its stylish yet laidback vibe, this family-run bar and steakhouse is the ideal Colchester setting for a number of different occasions, equally as popular for some coffee and cake in the morning as it is for a spot of lunch, dinner or some cocktails in the evening. From juicy steaks and grills to sharing platters, main courses and plenty of vegetarian and vegan options, the menu at The Warehouse Bar & Kitchen offers something for everyone.
Start off with some soft-shell crab with citrus mayo and a sweet chilli sauce or some chunky tomato and basil soup before chowing down on a succulent steak, the beef and ‘trendy’ ale pie or the pan-fried cod served with roasted peppers, tomatoes, crushed new potatoes and caper butter. From the stuffed eggplant steak to the chickpea, sweet potato, spinach and coconut curry, and the portobello mushroom and halloumi burger, the vegetarian and vegan options extend way beyond the usual mushroom risotto, making it a favourite among the town’s vegan and veggie crowd, and an ideal choice for when dining as a big group. After your meal, head through to the bar area and sink back some cocktails like the Smokey Bramble, a dark rum-infused drink with scotch whisky, brown sugar and cherry brandy, served with fresh lemon. Whether its for dinner or drinks, The Warehouse Bar & Kitchen is one of Colchester town centre’s most frequented haunts, so book ahead to be sure of snagging a table!

Good food, great service, really friendly. What a pity you insist on 25 words before I can post my review, now I just have to
Friendly and nice place. Would love to go back again. Food was nice and the waiters were so lovely and smilely. Love this place. Recomended x
The head chef was on point and acting as the floor manger he was awesome making us feel at home and very very welcome. The food was amazing and lots of it, so much they even gave us a doggie bag to take some home for our huskies. I will be using this venue for work functions and give them the highest recommendation I can. An absolutely fantastic night thank you.
Beautiful food and wonderful service! Really pleassurable experience. Would recommend to anyone...very homely feel to the Warehouse. Very good for all, from vegans to steak lovers!
Service was very slow considering the restaurant was not overly busy, plenty of empty tables. There was a party of about 14 people having a belated Christmas meal, this seemed to be the focus of the staff. I would have thought that having a group, large or small, eating virtually the same meal would not have been an issue, but apparently it was. We arrived at 7.45 and served our meal at 9pm. We also had to ask the whereabouts of drinks that we had ordered, not an ideal situation. We are booked in for Valentines but seriously considering another venue.
From start to end it was fantastic! It is not often you find a prawn coctail on a childrens menu, so my girl was over the moon. The food were amazing and the coctails where the best I had in this town. There were plenty of staff who really took care of us. We loved it!
Food delicious and beautifully prepared and cooked except for the home made tortilla chips which were a bit overdone. We went on vegan night and as I inevitably find in vegan places, there was inadequate protein in the dishes, although imaginative and delicious nonetheless. More salad would have been welcome.
A nice restaurant and food was pretty good. I've marked as a three as we were first seated beneath four screeching ladies by a draughty entrance door in a very empty restaurant, so asked to move and were kindly assisted. There had been a big party in (21st) and the sick outside the toilet and unfleshed loos kinda took the edge off. Not really their fault. Have the say that they were good guys but we won't be going back.
Very nice and cosy place, with friendly atmosphere. What we really liked except our amazing food is music! First, it was not very loud, we still could easily talk, and second we really liked what kind of music they put!!
Food was really nice. Good prices. The bike place was really nice and welcoming. Did not talk to the staff as much as I liked but they seamed to be nice. Would go agen.
Very polite and friendly staff. Quick service. Good quality food at great prices. The menu is small but there is something for everyone. Good range of cocktails. We very much enjoyed our lunch.
Fantastic, so happy with our delicious meal, especially the varied choice of vegan options. All of the servers were also so friendly. A great way to celebrate a family meal, we will be back. Thank you!
Cozy place, great decor, layout and lighting and friendly and welcoming staff. Food selection was great - interesting and a bit unusual, but delicious and well presented. A positive first experience of the Warehouse Grill.
Never do reviews but tonight deserves one. great service, nice simple menu. Awesome rustic venue, really well cooked steak. Beer lines had actually been cleaned as well. So winning
Very nice place with nice atmosphere and pleasant music in the evening and a very good service. We have enjoyed our evening and the vegan options were nice.
Table area a little cramped with echoing sound effects as its up in a gallery overlooking the bar area. Food is good though with a reasonable choice. Service was good too. A nice change from the usual chain restaurants in the town.
Had a lovely evening. Staff friendly and efficient, food excellent. Great atmosphere, in a out of the way location so nice and peaceful. A must try .

Excellent!! Had a brilliant evening! Owner was great & Bennito is one hell of a cocktail maker!! Can't wait to get back and visit again!!
Food enjoyable and service excellent. Pie was lovely and the vegan option was tasty too. Staff were really friendly. I would recommend the this restaurant
Nice place and the service was good, but let evening let down by the food which was cold, served on cold plates, and some of chips not cooked through and hard. Drinks a little pricey as well. We didn't have dessert or coffees, thinking it best to move on.
Very nice atmosphere and the food as well. Very nice quiet place for a dinner for two or a group. Easy to book online. Already have recommended to others.
Friendly staff, warm atmosphere, nice simple but inviting menu. quality of food is very good with attention to local produce. prices good for the quality of aspects on show.
Really lovely environment. We had great service, very helpful. The food was great, served quickly. The cocktail menu has lots of choice and we tried a couple, all lovely!
Shareable platters were amazing! We had the appetizer, main, and dessert platter and were very pleased with the variety. Servers were also great and very friendly! Would highly recommend!
Lovely atmosphere, amazing food, incredible cocktails and very well priced! Only critic would be to expand the menu. Thanks for a great evening! Will definitely be back soon.
The food was lovely, there was a great atmosphere and the staff were really friendly. Will definitely be back to try their £20 lunch & unlimited prosecco deal!
Nice atmosphere and fantastic polite waiter however order taken wrong so delay for one of us in getting correct food, this was rectified by being waived from the bill however the first bill was printed wrong! Food is rather overpriced for what it is!
Lovely staff, great food. Good to have some interesting vegetarian options too. The only negative was that the air conditioning was on way too high!
Relaxed atmosphere. Was a quiet night in middle of the week but staff were still friendly and attentive food was well priced and good value
Great to see vegan options, including wine. Nice atmosphere/ambience. Starter ok but a bit plain. The main was really tasty and the jackfruit was a first for me.
We were disappointed with the quality of the food. Although the service was fine, we won't be hurrying back. It's a shame as we were looking forward to going after so long
Very very slow to get our starter and main courses. Had to ask on both occasions where our food was. Two of our steaks were very chewy so I didn't eat mine. Our drinks were taken off the bill and also 10%. A real shame as we were all looking forward to going as it was my wife's birthday.. .
