“Sensibility Priced and Good Ambience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

My wife and i had lunch here several times and found the atmosphere to be very welcoming, the service reasonably swift and the menu very varied.Attracts a loyal following from all parts of the world and is at the centre of the Fanabe beach area within easy walking distance of many quality hotels.Would recommend this watering hole to readers.

“Lovely cocktails”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

We went to the Colonial for dinner as it was close to our apartment. Big menu featuring lots of British classics. Food was nice and good sized portions. We all had cocktails which were really nice and reasonably priced. Seem to have music on every night and the acts were ok. Went back another night for nightcap as it had a nice atmosphere. Service was good to start but then had a bit of a problem catching the waitresses eye for either more drinks or the bill, but it wasn't a huge issue.

“Guinness and steak pie amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

A lovely home cooked english meal. Guinness and steak pie was wonderful as were the chips. All meals were freshly cooked and piping hot. Apple crumble and custard was fab too. Good value.

“good priced food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Reasonable priced food and drink in typical English bar abroad. The waiting staff were pleasant although Martin could do with going on a course to learn how to smile. I know not every customer is always right but when you are in the service sector then moan about them out when of sight. After all some people might like to watch the cricket even if you don't. Apart from that food was good and hot (unlike earlier comments) and all the female waiting staff were pleasant at even the grumpy old Brits!

“Modern”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Decent enough English bar that they have spent money on to make it modern. Live music all (or most) nights? Not eaten here. A place I would pop into for a drink a few nights of a 2 week holiday.
