The contemporary brasserie using the best of British produce to create a fusion of great tastes and culinary delights.

Delivered with attentive service, the extensive menus offer a wide ranging choice. Our menus change frequently to make the most of fresh local produce. Daily specials are often available ensuring each experience of the brasserie is as unique and exciting as the last.

Our Sunday menu features with pride our award winning 'Best Roast Dinner' selection, making the brasserie the perfect venue to while away lazy days.

We have a special children's menu designed to offer the same quality food as all of our menus. There's space outside for some fresh air after lunch and young artists can enjoy colouring their own version of Wivenhoe House during the meal. High chairs are also available.

Enjoy our brand-new takeaways, now available to order! Choose from fresh stone baked pizzas, dishes to make at home, or our famous afternoon teas!
