“new staff”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

first visited on the28th may for a pint with my wife the barman (Graham) was the most welcoming we had ever met, nothing seemed to much trouble for him on our next visit 5 days later we decided to have a meal the waitress turned out to be the wife of Graham and was every bit as helpfull as her husband, we both chose the steak, perfect we have now been a total of six times and i can tell you this couple realy are are a breath of fresh air,. we allways end up stopping far longer than we intended, realy good food, great staff in a nice setting, free bouncy castle for the kids, lovely garden

“returned to the flag”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

We popped into the flag for a quick drink Sunday, and decided to stay for lunch because of the so delicious aroma for the kitchen ... I choose roast beef with all the trimmings and my partner had the lamb, you couldn't fault the quality, portions or freshness.... Staff are courteous and charming. Amanda the owner is very professional and a great host. Lovely pub with great atmosphere... We will recommend to friends.

“Change of Head Chef.”
Reviewed 20 May 2014

Due to unforeseen circumstances the Head Chef and the Restaurant Manager have now parted company with the Flag Public House and Restaurant. Our last day was Saturday 17th May 2014. We would like to thank all our customers over the last 3 months for there and fabulous reviews. We wish Amanda and her new team every success for the future.

“Not what we expected”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Having read the recent reviews we were very disappointed. We were not made to feel welcome when we arrived although there were only two other people eating in the restaurant at this time. The waitress was not particularly helpful and seemed intent on taking an order as quickly as possible. The food was mediocre and nothing to cheer about. We will not be visiting again.

“A good all-rounder.”
Reviewed 14 May 2014

We found this place pub on the way to Colchester and decided to stop in for lunch on the way home. Since then my son and I have been back twice, much to the disgust of hubby who has been away working! The menu has a good selection with I think at least 4, if not 5, choices of Sunday roasts. I defy you to leave the table hungry as the food is tasty and the portions are good - the spare ribs actually beat me. This recently added restaurant has very pleasant decor and the staff are friendly - it's lovely to be remembered, even though you're not a regular.
