Lemon Tree Colchester

48 St. Johns Street, Colchester, Essex, CO2 7AD
An unpretentious bistro-type restaurant partly set in the city’s Roman Wall. The dishes offered are adventurous and packed with modern influences.

The menu offers good value for the quality offered – starters including the likes of ‘Soup of the Day with French Bread’; ‘Raw Sashimi Tuna Tartare with Sour Cream, Chives and Soy Sauce’; 'Potted Duck, Pork Belly & Spring Onion Rillette'; 'King Prawn & Crayfish Cocktail with Cherry Tomato Salad' and ‘Lemongrass and Rocket Risotto with fresh Parmesan’.

Mains, maybe ‘Grilled Duck Breast with Blackberry and Apricot Sauce’; ‘Roast Chicken Breast with Honey and Couscous’; 'Rump of Essex Lamb with Garlic Mash & Rosemary Jus' and ‘Local Sea Trout with a Turmeric Sauce’.

Perhaps finish with ‘Raspberry Sorbet with Butter Shortbread’; 'Brulée of the Day' or ‘Dark Chocolate Mousse with Raspberry Sauce’.

An atmospheric private dining room is popular for parties.
