This pub is basically the only place to eat. The lager is decent, the wine was ok and the steak was decent. Good value for money, but the service is terrible and owner only bothers with the locals not the tourists!

Grunters being the only place in town does give it a bit of an advantage, however that is not a bad thing. We stayed within walking distance and ate there 2 nights running. It may never feature in any Michelin guide, but don't let that put you off. If steaks are your thing you will be in heaven. The place... More

We were booked in a wonderful guest house near here so didn't have much choice of where to eat. We had read some reviews on this place so thought we would give it a try. For a start, the service was so slow. We were thankful we went early because lots of poeple followed in and must gave been waiting... More

Ate at this pub two nights in a row. The ribs were very good as were the lamb chops. Would have liked a few more vegetable/salad options, but certainly enjoyed the meat. Altogether a pleasant experience.

Pat, we really enjoyed your restaurant, your passion and dedication really show! Acacia especially enjoyed the Malva Pudding...we tried it a few places after we left but yours was hands down the best! Lecker food! *Said with a Canadian accent*

Staying at Dungbeetle lodge - recommended to eat at Grunters. Pub food - middle of the range. Boerewors roll; boerewors & mash and ladies ribs - the ribs were good. Very dark pub.

...don't go for Burgers and Sandwich! Unfortunately the supply of restaurants in Colchester isn't that overwhelming. Nevertheless, we tried this place instead of preparing our own food. The people were really nice and lovely. The food, however, was below average, especially when you get used to the high standards in South Africa. We had cheeseburger with chips & sandwiches with...

Enjoyed a very good meal at Grunters over the holidays. Sat outside and enjoyed our meals and drinks. Standard pub grub, but nicely prepared and presented. An enjoyable evening.
