Reservations are recommended but not essential. Tables may be available for walk-in customers.

Group Bookings

Bookings of six or more guests in the Colne Bistro require a deposit of £5.00 per person. Deposits are required to guarantee your booking, which in turn guarantees assessment opportunities and qualifications for our learners.

Deposits can be paid by cash, cheque or credit/debit card at the CH&FS Reception or at the Online Store. (Please make cheques payable to Colchester Institute, and send to the Colne Bistro, Colchester Institute, Sheepen Road, Colchester, CO3 3LL.)

In the event of a full or partial cancellation, the deposit is non-refundable.
