andrew cox: Rubbish and the staff were terrible.. rude unprofessional and basically very much amateur
Laura Lilley: Came in for cocktails and the barman Adam kindly offered to make my friend a cocktail which was discontinued. This honestly made her day! Not only that but he sourced a couple of blankets for us to sit on outside to save the imprint of the chairs appearing on our legs. What a gent! Service with a smile and his efforts haven't gone unnoticed!!
Andi Cheese: Polite and efficient service. Not keen on only bar stools to sit on, a tad uncomfortable especially for long stays.We had a couple of cocktails and my espresso Martini was a bit on the alcohol free side. My partner's was ok but not the best place for cocktails in Colchester.

Twisters Bar: what do users think?
Carl Romano: Really nice outdoors area. Bit pricey and they serve shooter drinks in shot glasses which is cheeky.
Molly Hannan: Although coming out on a Saturday when the weather is awful is always a risk, I have to say the staff were bang on it! The place was clean and they couldn’t do more for us, John and Robbie were especially helpful in advising us to gluten free drinks and other particular (fussy) tastes. It is nice to go to a venue where the staff genuinely care about their customers. Thank you for a good night!
Keith Axon: Amazing find whilst heading back to the hotel. Staff really friendly, happy to chat whilst preparing excellent cocktails.
Ben Murray: It's alright for a pint
Lawrance Devon: Sunday evening week before Christmas thought we frequent a favorite of all ours.Unfortunately bar manager tried to charge his only customers in thete £28 for 3 beers and small glass of wine. When challenged he said he would reduce 20% off... sadly paid for but asked why so expensive and he said wine was £9 a glass... disgraceful behaviour and will not be returning or recommending
Lee Williams: Popped in this bar prior to dinner at nearby restaurant after reading good reviews on cocktails, and we were not disappointed with the quality and reasonably priced, only negatives were front and rear doors were fixed open which meant it was really cold, and no comfortable seating available in the front bar area.
Olivia hilton: Amazing drinks, smaller area but I appreciated that instead of busy Lound noises. Clean and friendly
Aisea Sautu: Quite unique bar inside as well as the beer garden. Definitely be going back
Joshua Andrews: quant and accommodating. old mout on tap, great music and their teapots will knock your head off
James Braddy: Got asked to leave by sum littleLady getting the door staff involved after having to shout for the bar staffs attension as they were busy talking and on the phones. Shocking service
Ellie Bladen: Wonderful time here with with my other half ❤️ Would like to thank Sarah for her great hospitality and all the other waitresses for their welcoming and friendly attitudes 😊
Matt Willis: Loved the tea pot
Dylan Read: Great little bar half way down north hill. Good prices, a quirky venue and friendly staff.
Eric Philbert: Excellent music, friendly service and top marks for the beers. Will go again
Megan Cranfield: First time my pals card got declined, second time went through. Bartender proceeded to ask what we do to see if we could "afford" our drinks. Felt like absolute dirt after. Usually regualar ustomers but reaĺly disppointed in our experience. Bartender was short, ginger, knob type.
Matthew Steen: Overrated
Harry Wills: the teapots are ruining my life. the music is great.
Ian Smith: First time here and will come again, good atmosphere and good beer
Robert Thomas: Fabulous, intimate venue. Great music and wonderful service.
Sarah Cooper: The cocktails are super tasty and it's great they have the app for table service to keep you safe at the moment. They lost 2 stars as we specifically requested low seats with backs and not bar stools when we made the booking online - 2 out of the 3 of us have back problems so this was really inmportant. Not only could they not accomodate this, they didn't bother to let us know beforehand and waited for us to question it upon seeing our table. We probably would have cancelled the booking if we'd known in advance.
Sarah Hansen: The place is amazing. I've been here on more than one occasion but only twice since covid. Its so safe and I felt very comfortable. The guy working I think was named Harvey (possibly sorry if I'm wrong) was fantastic. He explained they were a bit under staff and the back log of drinks. He was so good and I felt bad for him the amount of stress he was in. We always have a good time and the wait time will never put me off. It was a busy Saturday and we still had a great time. Thank you for your great service.

Yates Colchester: what do users think?
Andy Smith: Lewis was fantastic, he created such a welcoming and joyful experience. He’s a delight to be around. He definitely will be an asset to the yates Colchester team. This was our second visit and was returning after a previously bad visit and I can say he redeemed it for us, there was a group of 14 off us celebrating a 40th birthday and he worked incredibly hard to ensure everyone in the venue was catered too! Give him a payrise!!!!
Jessica Coombe: We came as a group of girls and had booked cocktail making class on 01/04/23. There was 10 girls who had just completed a bottemless brunch! Nick and Shelby were absolutly fantastic! They went out of their way to make sure we had a great night! They pulled it right out of the bag! Thank you both!

Walkabout: what do users think?
Karen Scott: Great place to watch the football. Friendly staff
Joshua Paulin: This place is an utter cesspit. My girlfriend was needle spiked and has spent the night in A&E. If you have any sense of self worth stay away from this disgusting institution. Safe to say I will not be going to anymore Wednesday night karaoke.
Temidayo Folorunsho: Relaxation is guaranteed!
Carlos Collis: Good value would return
Joseph Storey: Amazing service from Jonhy! Definitely recommend!
Oneli Jayasinghe: Nice place good environment with chilled vibes.Have to mention about Eric, who was very helpful and very friendly.would recommend this place to freinds.

Shanice Killops-smith: Eric was a legend!!!!!!
Oliver Willoughby: Eric is the most nicest person ever, he looks after everyone and gives us the best deals
Toby Taylor: Great service from the big Spanish man Eric pours a perfect pint!!!!! Un Poco!!!!
F S: Amazing! Eric is wonderful!
Mei Nishide: Eric is amazing.
Conor Bolton: Please walk in and then walk out. If you like fake themed bars full of idiots, expensive beer and harassed staff this place is for you. There's much better places than this to spend your money and time.
Biren Patel: Great place
B “Pearl” W: Really nice pub
Polly Val: it’s definitely the best place to come on a night out in colchester! Bar staff are friendly more so on less busy days and Olivia is so funny I’d go in just to talk to her
Saif Khan: Great service from Frayer
J Pad: It's good for sport. Loads of screens and multi-matches/sports being played at once.Staff are ok, wouldn't say they are the most amazingly friendly bunch but helpful enough. If I was going to suggest an improvement it would be staff/customer interaction - they could be friendlier/happier. I don't know if that's up to management to implement that or recruitment or the working conditions they are under.I come here a lot to watch sport so I can't complain too much, otherwise why would I keep coming back!
Libby Heyes: Came in on Thursday for a few drinks, the atmosphere was good, they had a dj and the staff were very helpful :)
Mahmoud Gonihm: I lived
DUK5TAH: the food was really good. drinks went down well service was really good. left just before it got to busy on new years eve.

daniel bostiog: O experienta de neuitat
Patrick Jones: Always a good night out here
Bryan Jeffreys: The visit to the Slug and Lettuce in Colchester was a mistake, asking for an espresso at 1 pm was clearly outside the competence of the company.Was offered coffee in a large tea mug as there were no espresso cups, or a plastic shot glass.. (no thanks) so settled on a whisky tumbler.Not warmed , espresso was instantly chilled, I asked for a hot one and was advised that I would have to pay again for that privilege.The sour faced member of staff, when asked for the manager said she was the manager. (? Spartacus)When asked who I should write to complain said that she did not know. When asked who her manager was she said she did not know.By this stage I was not surprised.The Slug and Lettuce staff were disorganised, dishonest, dour and disrespectful.This is not the best place in Colchester.Bj
Leonidas Papanikolaou: Excellent!
Tracy Silve: Roz and Alex and the team make this place a fantastic place to unwind. Fizz Friday was fabulous and they were more than accommodating with my dietary requirements
Alison George: Love this place! Great place for a couple of drinks after work, (this is getting to be a bit of a habit!) or for a fun night out with plenty of cocktails to choose from! Great atmosphere & great staff especially Roz, Evie (Ivy) Joss, Maddy & Daisy! Love you all! X
Angie Garrod: We come to the Slug and Lettuce a few times a week and 10/10 always a pleasure. Myself and colleagues work @ The George Hotel, and we always come and have a drink here after work. Roz + Evie are my favourites. Always welcoming and friendly and makes our visit such a pleasure every single time. They are such a credit to this lovely bar. Xx
Biren Patel (Bill): Great place to party
Nelly A: Had a lovely birthday celebration, Maddy is the best bartender in the world
Debbie Moss: Staff a little slow but food was good
ryan: Great atmosphere, Maddy especially was amazing so friendly and helpful overall amazing experience drinks so delicious

Rubix Bar & Nightclub: what do users think?
James Smith: It was okay overall, i just wish you guys could maybe consider capacity within the venue especially on a friday and a saturday. At about 12:30 it gets far too busy, dance floor is too busy to the point people are ending up on the floor due to pushing and shoving. It ruined the night because a safe environment during the early stages in the night turn pretty sour later on.
Michael Rossington: Been here a few times and always had a good night. Staff are friendly and the bar is reasonably priced compared to other venues in the city. Good music and good people what more could you want? Thanks Rubix :)
Natalia Natalii: It was our first time in Rubix and probably the last. The music is great but the rest leaves a lot to be desired. Please be more clean. The other thing is the bartenders. On New Year's Eve we had fun upstairs and how the bartenders cheated us out of drinks was ridiculous! The first time it happened to us that instead of alcohol we got Coke with ice or other. Every time we bought drinks we had to stand and watch so that no one cheated us again. The second thing is that our drinks were disappearing from the tables. The bartenders took the glasses when there was still half the drink in them. Several times we pointed out, but they did not refund us neither the money nor the drink. It was our first and last time in this club. Worst bar service for us. If the club manager is reading this post, please do something about it. We certainly will not recommend your club to anyone for this reason.Shame of you!
Michelle De Feo: Booked a VIP booth for a get together.Great music and the staff was super friendly. However it would of been nice to have picked the VIP drink as only one person in our group liked Prosecco and we had a friend slip and smash her face on the table because the floor was so slippery.
Maddie Lawrence: We hired the VIP upstairs for our Christmas work party and there was karaoke all night we ended up going down stairs from time to time as we needed to have a dance, also I went to get my drink from the table and someone had cleaned the table, there was no red wine upstairs bar and had to go downstairs to my drinks, I couldn't buy a bottle so had to buy glasses of wine that was a different piece each time I went up.
Mohammad Amin Jarrahi: Loved it
Ollie Smith: Friendly, cheery, safe place
Alison Austin: Nice place great music. Great atmosphere would definitely recommend. My leaving do had a great night
Mark Morgan: Excellent music
Biren Patel (Bill): Great night out
Simon waite: Best club in town.
Dan Webb (Beau Daniels): First time here.... Loved it! 🎶 🕺 🚦
Danni Martin: Amazing atmosphere, staff amazing but when I went (gay night) the club was empty- can't wait to give it 5 stars when I can go with people there
Ugo Aganoke: If you are looking to having a great night out jamming to 80s, 90s and 00s music then pop in to Rubix.The dance floor fills up really quick once the mood picks up so get in early. This is the only downside as there is not much room to hold a sizable number of people and it gets stuffy too.Otherwise, it's one of the best places in Colchester for lovers of old school music.
David08: Drive from Ipswich to Colchester was worth it - music, Scene, was what was expected - some people in fancy dress - will visit again 80, 90 music
William Elbourne: I was sober so didn't enjoy it as much as I would if I had a few bevvies
Millie: Good music,. Nice place, friendly,. Would go again.
Ash Tucker: Utter cheese. As expected. 90's and 80's as promised. Top tier pop world knockoff
Kevin parkes: Well worth a try
Nicola Went: Cute bar and club. LGBTQ night - fabulous music. Would have loved to have seen more drag queens etc as it was the first Friday of the month. Still had a great time though dancing to the music!
Lion 1708: Great night out. Good music - all 80s and 90s. Went for a friend's birthday and she'd booked a booth and we got a bottle of prosecco. All night the staff were coming over and checking we were good and even taking drinks orders and bringing them over to us.
