Like the majority of hotels, eating here in my opinion is pricey. However, Wivenhoe has no real alternatives, so you’re probably looking at a drive into Colchester, so You’re probably better off giving the hotel a go!£

All the dining areas are directly linked to or in the main old building, there’s a lovely breakfast room and lounge, and then there’s the modern brasserie downstairs attached to the back
