2 for 1 at The Peldon Rose

The Peldon Rose is situated in Peldon, Colchester, and is a homely public house and restaurant. The hard working staff take pride in offering fine modern dining, great customer service and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. You will receive a warm welcome when you visit, whether it is your first time at the venue or you are a regular visitor. The owner believes that he has made luxurious dining affordable, and has teamed up with a talented chef to create a fantastic menu that is filled with delicious British and modern European delights.

Try the tasty chilli and garlic crevettes, tasty whole prawns served in the shell, with a leafy salad and chunky fresh bread. Main courses include a tasty creamy risotto, perfectly cooked pork medallions, and oriental teriyaki salmon, to name but a few.

The venue itself was built in the 15th century, and has been lovingly retained and restored over the years. With cosy oak beams and beautiful surroundings, The Peldon Rose really does provide a haven from busy everyday life. In the warmer months, dine al fresco in their large garden.

    Started off with not having any steaks or the duck which were the things we ordered . Then after another 15 minutes I was told there was no chicken liver pate which was what I was having for starter. Prawn cocktail was standard but a 4 year old could make it, the ham hock which I had instead of the pate was bland and poorly presented. Burger was over cooked and tasted burnt, chips were dried out as if they had been sitting under the heat lamps for a while. Veg was very bland and tasted like it had been cooked in a microwave. Overall service was fairly poor and inattentive, certainly wouldn't recommend. "

    The food at the Peldon Rose is great. However it was let down by the inattentive service and the freezing cold room.
    The place has a lot of potential but need improvement. "

    " Tried the Peldon Rose, because, although we are fairly local, 2 for 1 was too much to turn up. We went on a Sunday, when (not that you'd know through their website) they do roasts as well as some other things.

    I had my favourite roast beef, and my wife had slow cooked lamb.  The meals were excellent, the meats were both truly excellent. The gravy was lovely, and a great medley of veg just added to the superb meal.

    We were hungry as it was late (1500) so went for desserts that were also wonderful - a lovely home made lemon posset, and a warm chocolate brownie.

    All round excellent and very enjoyable "

The staff were pleasant and welcoming and although we arrived just as the kitchen had closed we were allowed to eat. The food was delicious I had the lite bite fish and chips. Which I was told was a smaller portion than the main menu. Well all I can say is the lite bite was more than enough for me. Overall a very pleasant experience and we will be coming back for more. I particularly liked the open fire in the main bar. A lovely feature which will be welcoming on a cold winters night. "
