The Company Shed | Mersea Island

The Company Shed 129 Coast Road West Mersea Colchester Essex CO5 8PA

01206 382700

It’s a fantastic seafood restaurant, but you don’t visit The Company Shed for its opulent decor. The ethos of this family business is to keep things simple: freshly caught fish, crab, lobster, tiger prawns, mussells and more are prepared and served with minimal fuss, in unpretentious surroundings.

The Shed Company draws legions of visitors from across the region and beyond and it’s especially busy in the summer, so make sure you arrive early to secure a table. They don’t take bookings, but instead operate a waiting list system, which can mean a fairly lengthy wait. Alternatively, they offer their food to take away, so it might be worth packing some cutlery and glasses for a seafood picnic.

The restaurant does have a licence and serves locally produce wines, beer and soft drinks, but guests may bring their own wine if they prefer, as well as their own bread.
