Timbers Food & Drink Restaurant
This independent, family-run café in the historic town of Colchester offers a friendly welcome and great-value home-cooked meals, making it a real hit with locals and visitors alike. Timbers consistently receives high ratings on TripAdvisor.
Timbers’ copious breakfasts come with a cup of tea or ﬁlter coffee, and even the most substantial is only £6.25. If by any chance it isn’t big enough, you can add sides of black pudding, hash browns, diced potatoes, and bubble and squeak. Lunch includes a wealth of options, from sandwiches, soups and traditional British classics like beef stew and dumplings, to hunter’s chicken and lasagne. As well as regular classics like cottage pie and scampi, there’s pie, quiche and a ﬁsh dish of the day, and in case you arrive too late for breakfast, there’s a fabulous all-day brunch option. All the ingredients are sourced from local suppliers, prepared on the premises and served with a smile. The food can be accompanied by a wonderful range of hot drinks, including the delectable coconut hot chocolate. Desserts feature old-fashioned favourites such as an ice cream sundae of the day, homemade crumbles and jam roly poly, and you can also indulge in traditional afternoon tea.
With such tasty food, fast and friendly service, and reasonable prices, it isn’t surprising that Timbers is very popular, so make sure you book to be sure of a place.
