Went in for a lunch. Had to wait a whole hour because a group that pre booked a table got served their first, despite arriving later than the table on which I sat.

Ordered fish & (sweet potato) chips with mush peas. After more than an hour got fish & regular chips, with regular peas. Could not be bothered to complain as I was starving.more

I was in London last week for work. My coworkers took me to the Coloinies pub for dinner and drinks. The beer was great and as good as the other pubs we visited.

At times it gets pretty noisy.

Nice "locals" pub with a decent selection of ale, enjoying a pint if Doom Bar today, reasonable food and most importantly on a summers day some outside space.

Get very busy around 6 with the after work crowd.

8/10 Worth a visit if you are looking for a cold refreshment near Victoriamore

Pretty nice pub, decent staff and quick service (so long as you get there before 6ish). Good choice of Real Ales.

Also a good place if you want to try and pick up documents from Civil Servants (as there are rather a lot that come here after work). Probably a good place for Torygraph journos to hang out to pick up a misplaced briefcase or USB drivemore
