We are delighted to announce that we are now open for eating in!

We're open Wednesday through to Sunday. You must pre-book, we are not accepting 'walk-ins'. In order to book, please email us (, or 'phone us on (01206 382700). We are still experiencing problems with Facebook IM, so until we let you know otherwise, please do not try and contact us using this method.

Unfortunately, due to Covid we have had to make some changes to the way in which we run the business in order for us to be able to continue trading in the future. These decisions were not taken lightly and we hope that you understand.

  • If you're running late, we can only hold the table for a maximum of 15 minutes, unless we are aware that you are running late, and you have paid a deposit. We suggest that if you're driving, you drop the group off before the driver finds somewhere to park. 
  • When you arrive, just wait at the door. A member of staff will come and meet you and show you to your table.
  • We sell both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. You are still welcome to bring your own, but there is now a corkage charge: £5 per bottle of wine and £1 per bottle or can of beer.
  • We also sell bread and butter, but you are still welcome to bring your own.
  • We will take your order at your table, instead of you having to come to the counter to order.
Thank you so much for your cooperation and continued custom! Best wishes, Caroline (Caz)

We are a family run seafood restaurant located in West Mersea, Colchester, and we have gained a reputation among locals and tourists alike as being the best restaurant to visit for dishes such as crab, lobster, fish, mussels, tiger prawns and more. Our extensive eat-in or take-away seafood menu, combined with our fantastic friendly service, will ensure that you come back time and time again. All seafood and alcohol at The Company Shed is sourced locally, whenever possible, so come and visit us for a real taste of the island.

We are available for private evening hire and we also cater for events off the premises, such as weddings, Christenings and family parties, providing both food and staff. Please enquire within.
