Good food, good place

Very good food and nice place with AC to visit. Colonial with an old world's charm. Relaxing and inviting. We had many meals there and all were good. The bar-area is very inviting, friendly and informal. Just the right place to enjoy a cold beer. The hamburgers are very tasty as well as the pies... read more

A casual place for drinks and dinner. It's a place for steaks, burgers, sandwiches and pasta. The pasta dishes and seafood are good. The fried stuff are not so great.

This place is a must for any cricket lover visiting Colombo. The memorabilia on the walls could keep ones interested for hours and a great place to watch a match and enjoy a quiet pint

We had heard before we travelled to Sri Lanka about this place and being cricket lovers it was a must. If you enjoy cricket it won't disappoint. It is almost a small museum with a lot of old photographs, signed bats etc. The bar area has tv's showing both live cricket and other sports. Food which is also cricket themed... More

We were expecting there to be a cricket ground, but the Cricket Club is in a dear little old house down a small street, surrounded by much taller buildings, but once inside, there is no doubt about its cricket credentials. It is stuffed with the most wonderful collection of international cricket memorabilia in all the rooms and on the wall... More

Food is great! I had the mixed grill... should have chosen the bbq sauce rather then the pepper sauce.. it was a good place to hang out.. we selected the table outside. No WIFI.. means, more chances to talk with friends, rather than updating statuses online.. It is always good to have a good chat with friends over bottle of... More

This was a fun, lively and well decorated bar, testament to the Sri Lankan's love of cricket. There is memorabilia all around the walls and even the menus are cricket-themed. I had a Sobers-Singapore-Sling and it was great. A fun bar. Would recommend and visit it again.

The atmosphere was truly colonial; you'd expect to see gentlemen with whiskers propping up the bar. In fact, the place was quite empty. The service very slow and uninterested, the food just average, neither very good nor very bad. Mind you, we chose to eat from the bar menu, rather than have a full 3 course meal. I would say...
