    It is placed on Colchester High Street and is a great place to crash after a night out. Yes, it is a centrally located place for clubs and pubs

    Hi Mick We usually take bookings up until 9.30pm. With regards to last orders - if there is no-one in the restaurant it could close as early as 8.30pm. Best to book and guarantee a table!
