A FAMILY-RUN café in the heart of Colchester which has become a residents’ favourite is once again helping ring in the festive season with a special window display. 

Bar 82, in Culver Street East, Colchester has given its window display a touch of the Christmas season by decorating it in a festive theme.

In an image seen by the Gazette, the window can be seen boasting a Christmas tree and a glittering reindeer and covered in sparkly tinsel.

General manager Dean Reid said: “We are a family-run café, and we do this window every year, which attracts more customers to come in.” 

The café has been praised by guests for its great food and drinks, with one TripAdvisor user once calling it a “10 out of 10”.
