DOUGH&co Woodfired Pizza Colchester
Unfortunately, we were in the cellar with no heating, so very cold through the meal.
Food ok, red wine pretty rough for £18.
Very cosy place. Good was nice, staff were super friendly. Would go back again if I fancied a pizza.
Very quiet probably time of day.
No atmosphere or ambience.
Staff seemed very subdued.
No background music .
Food ok but verging on Luke warm could have done with more cooking or heating before serving.
Red wine very cold and poor flavour.
My pizza had chicken and ham topping but appeared to have been placed cold on top of pizza after cooking not deep inside the cheese.
I had a delicious pasta dish, while my friend enjoyed a pizza. The portions were very big so unfortunately we had no room for dessert (which looked amazing when we saw it being taken to other tables!)
Lovely service from friendly and attentive staff.
I’ll definitely be returning!
The food was absolutely delicious and honestly one of the nicest meals I've eaten. We all raved about the pizza and pasta and I also had a salad which was really tasty. Portions were great too. Would definitely recommend.
My only feedback is we found the restaurant a little cold, but this isn't really a criticism just our own experience. The setting doesn't necessarily lend itself to being super warm and with it being an open kitchen I'm sure the chefs get very hot so it's understandable why the temperature may have felt a little low to us.
All in all a wonderful meal and I only wish I lived a little closer as I would be eating there regularly!
The food was terrible. They claim rustic Italian pizza but it was more like a cross between a Dominos base and layers of Chicago Town cheese. The staff were not rude as such, but clearly didn't care. Terrible experience. Certainly wont eat there again.
The service was poor. One girl was lovely the other had no rapport with us at all.
The food was ok but very heavy and a little sickly. The ravioli had far too much sauce on it.
Did the meerkat offer so ending up being great value.
There were fleas in the restaurant, one jumped into our drink and another on the table….
Really delicious pizzas as always. The staff are friendly and attentive. The restaurant was really quiet when we got there but absolutely no complaints.
Really great pizza, good gluten free options for pasta and pizza. Would have been great to have some gluten free dessert options if possible.
Pretty average. Pizzas were ok but restaurant seemed to be overrun with delivery orders which was right near where we were sat which wasn't great ambience
Some of the best pizza's we've had!! Well cooked, fresh, lots of toppings, excellent starters too 👍
The only slight negative is a minimal selection of drinks.
Came here when it first reopened after covid and was really disappointed as my partners food wasn’t as expected but mine lovely. Decided to give it another go..he did really enjoy the food the second time as did I. However, we got sat on a tiny table for two which is positioned almost underneath the stairs meaning headroom was only just enough and was pretty dark. I did ask to move but was told all tables are fully booked other than one which we would’ve only had 1hr until the reservation. We decided to stay put as didn’t want to be rushed but wish we did move. Meal was totally rushed and didn’t get time to enjoy having a meal out, along with the other 2x four seater tables that didn’t have anyone sat at by the time we left. Not sure if I would return unless I can be garunteed a better table and less rushed. Food is lovely which is a shame.
Fabulous pizza and great service but maybe music could be a bit quieter (I must be getting old!)
Great food! Nice staff! Wine choices could be better and stated clearly on menu to colour.
Great place and deffo will be returning
Very quiet with waitress that seemed like she didn’t want to be there. The place was empty with no atmosphere at all and the drinks prices are ridiculous
Myself and my partner decided to dine here to celebrate my uni results before going to see a movie. The service was super friendly and the food was brought out at an incredible speed (without rushing us). We sat in the downstairs cave area so it was super cosy and intimate. We were very happy with our experience!
Phenomenal food and service
Great food. Not much of a spirit drinks selection. Was sat in the cave which was nice. Did have to remind them we needed drinks once. But after checked on us lots.
Will be going back.
Warm prosecco / Cold pizza !
Had to ask for drinks - food arrived before drinks ! Offered me ice in warm prosecco rather than replacing- but then replaced.
Got raw onion instead of caramelised- took it away and added cold caramelised onion straight from jar !
Very poor. Felt sorry for waitress - every table appeared to have complaints - in the end they took pizza & prosecco off bill.
Seemed like geared up for take aways and not for dining in !!
Friendly, welcoming when we arrived.
Delish pizza and pasta served quickly. Made a nice change for lunch. Even got a take away pizza for my other half (he loved it)
Service charge which doesn’t go to staff is disgusting. Small bottle of coke £2.60 day light robbbery
Hi Greg, We are so sorry to hear you feel our drinks are overpriced. We would also like to point out our service charge does indeed go to our staff, so we are unsure why you would think this. We really hope you will consider giving us a try again in the future. Thank you, DOUGH&co Woodfired Pizza
Food was good, however the variety of soft drinks and beer could be improved. If you have small children take into account that there is no baby changing facilities.
Hi Sara, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! Thank you for your feedback in regards to our soft drinks. Please note that there are baby changing facilities in our disabled bathroom. We hope to see you again soon! Kind regards, DOUGH&co Woodfired Pizza

First visit to a restaurant for a while! Ideal venue to meet and chat - small tables in the cellar area maybe a challenge for taller guests.

Great food , fast service and polite server but I what matters most good portions
Hi Alex, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! We are pleased you enjoyed your portion sizes too! DOUGH&co Woodfired Pizza
Love the crispy base of the pizza, woodfired pizza does make a huge difference, would have gone a little bit further with the baking in the fire though, more crasty Base would be appreciated
Hi Will, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! Thank you for the feedback regarding your pizza, please be sure to mention this on your next visit! DOUGH&co Woodfired Pizza
I would not go there to sit outside. If you are going there to sit indoors though, the food is exceptional.

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review! DOUGH&co Woodfired Pizza
"The White One" is probably the best pizza I have ever tasted. If you like cheese then this is the pizza for you!!!
Excellent food, really good value for money and definitely would recommend
Food was great and the servers were very lovely, unfortunately everyone around us needed something and was waiting a while to order anything or have any real service. It wasn’t overly busy just unfortunately just poorly managed.
We arrived late-due to not having been in Colchester before. It’s in a busy area but a quite & tucked away location.
Service was amazing and staff were understanding and helpful knowing we had got lost! Food is incredible, shame we were too full for dessert.
Will be back next time ever in Colchester!
Brilliant service. Food was amazing as always. Couldn’t not have had a better meal and time out
We are repeat customers and can happily recommend Dough & Co as a great place for a family meal out - we went with our sons aged 7 and 5 and had a great time!
