Worth to make a trip

Authentic taste with simple food display. The food brings back my childhood memories. A good place to catch up with friends and/or a simple family meal. A good spread of food to be served at Colbar. The Mrs at the counter, who took our order, she is friendly and thoughtful. 😊

Hidden away from the city center you will find Colbar eathouse where the absolutely serve the best Chicken Curry Rice! A must try. Apart from that they have an extensive menu with other great food to choose from though. They also have a lot of international beers ranging from local to Belgium and German beers and more.

The place certainly hasn't been touched since colonial days, so don't expect credit cards, air con, wine or fancy chairs. The food is simple and was delivered quite quickly. The long grass around the restaurant means some mozzie spray is probably a wise idea. It's nice a quiet and certainly a hidden gem, but it felt a little like a... More

Quiet Heaps of ciders to choose from Old school decor Outdoors so don't expect air conditioning Limited food options (don't expect to eat after 9pm either) Relatively Easy on the wallet, great place to just chill and hang out with friends. Casual. No dress code required. I think they accept cash only

Been threatening to write a review about the Colbar for a long time now but I'm afraid more folks will find it! Hidden away is the best way to describe the location of the Colbar at the end of Portsdown Road. Enjoy the laid back ambience surrounded by trees and wildlife... Peaceful, no hustle and bustle! Patronage varies wildly... Every... More

Tried out the pork chop with peas which was quite tasty and tender with a mushroom sauce. My daughter has the chicken curry with rice which seems to be the best seller. Not sure why as the curry is not spicy with the oomph. We think the biggest draw is probably the rustic and cool atmosphere and environment. You make... More

Not only does this pace ooze character and uniqueness but it has good service. A simple but excellent menu with traditional basic British food and an extensive range or English beers and ciders. It's also family run with Auntie and Uncle still serving you from behind the bar and plenty of places for the kids to play while parents and... More

Nice 60s decor place with a huge selection of British beers and ciders. Food was ok, but nothing to write home about. The atmosphere is nice and allows and the place allows dogs, which adds to the laid back feeling.
