Father's Day

relax and indulge at Wivenhoe House

Enjoy an award winning three course Sunday meal in the contemporary brasserie, or book a table for afternoon tea.

Sunday 18 June 2017

Open all day for breakfast, lunch or dinner

Treat your father to an award winning roast dinner this Father’s Day in the stunning surroundings of Wivenhoe Park located on the outskirts of Colchester.

If your father is more partial to a sumptous afternoon tea than a traditional Sunday lunch, why not consider booking Wivenhoe House’s renowned afternoon tea.

Reservations for both Father’s Day Sunday roast in the contemporary brasserie and afternoon tea served in our magnificent lounges will be taken by our reception team.
Please contact the hotel reception team to reserve your table:

After your dining experience, why not consider a stroll in the sunshine along the scenic Wivenhoe Trail which follows the River Colne with beautiful estuary views from Castle Park in the town centre to Wivenhoe House. The trail and the quaint town of Wivenhoe are both a short walk from Wivenhoe House.
