2 for 1 at The Blue Anchor

Found on Feering Hill in the picturesque rural Colchester village of Feering, The Blue Anchor is a wonderfully charming five bedroom hotel. It's also home to a stylish and contemporary restaurant that offers up a wealth of exquisite gastro-pub type fare.

Sat within a beautifully converted 16th century coaching inn and surrounded by tranquillity, The Blue Anchor is a joy to behold on the inside and the out, and all who enter are afforded a warm welcome by the friendly team of staff.

The invitation is extended to tastecard members, who are able to partake in anything found on the a la carte menu of the restaurant at a superb price when they call in advance and produce their card upon arrival, giving them the perfect excuse to indulge in an extra course or two.

The menu at The Blue Anchor is ever-changing to ensure that only the freshest of ingredients are used within their dishes, which serves to provide diners with the best quality food. From a starter selection that has included such delights as a scrumptious ham hock & vegetable terrine and a glorious smoked salmon, king prawn & caviar topped prawn cocktail, to the array of mouth-watering mains that the restaurant has been known to offer, diners are sure to be enchanted from start to finish.

When it comes to the larger plates, the menu has boasted a host of options that promise to meet a variety of appetites and palates. Particularly enticing examples of such have been seen in the delectable butternut squash, goats cheese, herb & caramelised onion tart, the quintessentially British beer battered fish & chips combination and the divine slow roasted pork belly, served with wholegrain mustard mash & savoy cabbage.

Be it for an intimate evening out with the significant other, a catch up with some close friends, a family celebration, or a bit of respite amidst a day of exploration, all are catered for at The Blue Anchor.

    " We'd heard good things of this restaurant from a neighbour, and as it was on Tastecard, decided to try it this evening. So we booked on line, mentioned the TC and got a quick reply confirming and reminding me to show the card when we asked for the bill.

    The menu was extensive with lovely choices. My wife and I opted for fishcakes (her) and lamb bonbons (me) as starters. Both dishes were wonderfully tasty and a suitable portion size.

    We followed this with Tender lamb rump, braised minted lamb neck, shepherd’s pie pomme dauphine served with tenderstem broccoli, toasted almonds and rich mint jus (her) and Honey roasted pork belly and pork fillet medallions with truffle mash, savoy cabbage and pancetta jus (me). Again the food was perfectly cooked, extremely tasty and a sensible portion size... The Portion size is a clever ruse, because it leaves room for the desserts... Here we had a Mini Trio (her) and Apple & Cinnamon cheesecake (me). The three parts of the trio were a delicious panacotta, a profiterole and a lemongrass crème brule, all of which were excellent. My cheesecake was truly delicious, service was excellent throughout and made the evening thoroughly special.

    We will go back! "

    Great looking building, and immaculate inside. The staff were very professional and friendly. The food was excellent. Looking forward to returning and working through the menu.

    If I had one comment it would be that they served craft beer, even something like Brewdog. Other than that 5 stars all round! "
