About Us

Three Wise Monkeys is a modern style Public House split over 4 floors in the heart of Colchester, Essex.

The ground floor is an large Tap House serving a huge range of quality beers from both keg and cask. We also have a great selection of spirits, unique cocktails, wines and coffee.

The first floor houses a spacious public bar and kitchen. Food will be served throughout the day with a passionate focus on slow-cooked, smoked American-style barbecue food and gourmet burgers. High quality local produce is at the heart of everything we do.

The second floor is a fantastic live music and club night/dancing venue that doubles as a large private function room.

Opened in 2016, our new basement bar has a boiler room/speakeasy vibe that is open every Friday and Saturday from 7pm until close.
