Wendy and the girls welcome you to The Hospital Arms Pub

The Hospital Arms is a traditional ale house on the outskirts of Colchester offering a warm and friendly welcome.

Its name derives from its location opposite what used to be the town’s main hospital. In years gone by it was known as Ward 9, with hospital staff racing across for a quick drink between shifts.

There’s an extensive selection of real ales, craft spirits and delicious wines, with the kitchen offering, simple, hearty, home-cooked food at lunchtime.

Whether you’re looking for a pint of Adnams, a glass of chilled white wine or a cup of coffee, Wendy and her team will make you very welcome.
