Stopped by with a friend for lunch. Down stairs was full but there was plenty of room upstairs. Food was reasonably priced; bit of a wait for it but we weren't in a rush. Staff were very friendly and helpful Would happily go back

Timbers is reasonably priced for enormous portions - plenty to choose from too. Good for stopping by at lunch, probably wouldn't go here in the evening but it is lovely inside. Have heard good things about breakfast here

Was there on a Friday for Fish & Chips. Loved the ambience and the staff were friendly and helpful too - but the food was average. Might have been my menu selection - willing to give them another chance

The staff were very friendly & made me feel very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble. Huge portions & great value for money. Will definitely... More

Simon, Ali and the team would like to welcome you to "timbers" our family run restaurant set in a gorgeous 400 year old timber framed building in the historic centre of Colchester.
We offer well cooked quality food from our famous breakfasts using locally sourced ingredients, such as Proctors award winning sausages, local farm free range eggs, to our home made versions of world renowned classics. Great Coffees and teas or maybe something a little stronger are all available to wash it all down with!
We believe that if we can serve you the best meals, by the friendliest staff, then you will be more than happy to come back and recommend us to all your friends.
