Decent, unspoilt little pub. Good choice also of draught real ales. People behind the bar quite friendly but not very eager to please.
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
The Colonies is typically the first port of call after work for many who work in Victoria, and as a result, at 5:30 it becomes incredibly busy. Patience is key here if you want to get served.
There's a good selection of drinks and food, although service is often a little slow - they always seem to be understaffed...
In the summer it is ideal as there's a decent space out the back to sit...more
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
Great Pub, that gets really busy. There is an area at the back with about 20 benches and if you don't get there before 12.30 during the week, you won't get a table in at lunchtime.
Standard offering when oit comes to ales and lagers, but the food is well worth visiting for.
Staff turnover is quite low, so the regulars do get served first, but all in all, a 5 star lunschtime pubmore
