The Playhouse, Colchester (2012)...

I’ve been in The Playhouse on numerous occasions over the years, either for a quick coffee while I’m in town or a pre-arranged meal with friends. 

There’s a wide variety of seating options (providing it’s not too crowded) and the menu is very reasonable (standard Wetherspoon fare). My main gripe would be that service, even when the place looks half empty, can be quite slow, as other reviewers have pointed out. However, the food is always cooked well and portions are quite substantial, so it’s good value. Just remember to allow plenty of time for your meal to arrive, although if time is an issue then you may wish to consider an alternative restaurant.

I really like the fact that it’s retained its theatrical theme with the dummies on the balcony at the rear of the building and the tables at the back placed in a stage setting.

Toilets are generally clean and plentiful which is a bonus.
