The World's End Market

You’d be forgiven for thinking that from the outside, World’s End Market looks like an old fashioned pub and perhaps this is the main pinnacle of its instant charm. Make it through the front door and you’ll be surprised to learn that this is actually a rather trendy restaurant and late night bar with a modern and quirky feel. As the name may suggest, World’s End Market serves up a flavoursome selection of dishes and sources all of it’s fresh ingredients from local produce.

A culinary first for the hip end of the King’s Road, the food here is simplistic to really savour the good quality of meat and fish on offer, nothing is prepared beforehand and this is reflected in the freshness of the dishes. Colchester Oysters seem to be the favoured choice of appetiser here and rightfully so as they come served with the restaurant’s delicious market sauce to really create an appetite for what’s to come.
