brasserie bar and restaurant
The brasserie at Wivenhoe House, near to the pretty quayside village of Wivenhoe near Colchester, is inspired by the concept of a classic brasserie, bringing a little taste of France to the Essex countryside. We offer a winning combination of classic dishes and modern cuisine, to be enjoyed in our attractive and informal setting and delivered with attentive service.
The extensive menus offer a wide-ranging choice, making the most of fresh local produce. Our Plat du Jour ensures each experience of the brasserie is as unique and exciting as the last.
Introducing our brand new Edge Lunch Club menu! From Monday to Friday, leisurely lunchtime diners can enjoy a delicious prix fixe menu (changing on a weekly basis), a three-course set menu priced at £15.00. This is amazing value, and perfect for those wanting to enjoy a three-course meal in a shorter period of time, we will ensure you are in and out within the hour, great for any lunchtime meetings! Alongside our Edge Lunch Club menu, we will also have a bar menu available, for those seeking a more classic dish. Available for small and large groups of up to 24, call us on 01206 863 666 to book your table.
Our Sunday lunch menu features our award-winning ‘Best Roast Dinner’ selection, making the brasserie the perfect lunch venue to while away lazy days.
Fish Friday is on the first Friday of every month and has built up an enviable reputation in the local area, be sure to book in advance to ensure a space at these sell out events.
Our bottomless Lunch is available every Saturday, including lunch from our menu and unlimited Prosecco, Becks Vier or House Wine.
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.
