I used to work in Colchester and it's a really nice town - once the capital of Roman Britain. The castle is worth a visit and the town centre is nice for shopping, all olde worlde with small lanes (a bit like a mini York). It's not far to Flatford Mill where the famous Constable painting was painted and not too far to the coast. The only restaurant/pub I can remember was the George Hotel in the High Street as work colleagues from Lancashire used to stay there during the week. It was very old, nice and cosy, log fires etc. I'm feeling quite envious now - I'm from the other side of Essex so all the restaurants I know are in the west of the county - hope you have a good time.
