As a resident in the area for only two months, but a visitor to Grunters on a regular basis two years ago, I found the welcoming still as warm as always. Patrick is a legend at Grunters and JD the barman also such a bliss....More

Very good food and friendly service. We had ribs and steak which was superb. The fireplace was burning which gave a warm and cosy atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Have eaten here twice in the last couple of years when staying in Colchester. Always busy but good personal, friendly service and choice of food. Excellent steaks and draft beers.

This was my first time in the area. We stayed over for a night in order to have two whole days in Addo. This was the best choice we could have made for supper with little knowledge of the small town. Amazing burgers.

This pub is basically the only place to eat. The lager is decent, the wine was ok and the steak was decent. Good value for money, but the service is terrible and owner only bothers with the locals not the tourists!

Grunters being the only place in town does give it a bit of an advantage, however that is not a bad thing. We stayed within walking distance and ate there 2 nights running. It may never feature in any Michelin guide, but don't let that...More

I'm not sure. When we were in the area last January they seemed to be open all day. We only dined there in the evening, but I'm sure the menu included breakfasts. Perhaps their web site will tell you or perhaps email them.
