Now owned by Greene King, the Colonies is a bit tucked away on Wilfred Street. Still a fairly open plan traditional pub interior the key selling point for this one over the multitude of other options in the nearby area is the pleasant courtyard garden that stretches from the back of the pub all the way to a back entrance on Castle Lane.
Insanely busy with the afterwork crowd when I popped in last week and three GK brews and a cider meant I didn’t linger long personally. But it was attracting a crowd that were and good on it for that.

Unspectacular pub with five hand pumps, three of which were in use but no ale of any strength. Service was slow, to say the least. Would not return.

A Taylor Walker pub previously called The Pineapple and well described below. Four ales on during this visit, we had Stonehenge which was in OK condition, slightly past its best. OK to drop in or include in a crawl, but maybe not somewhere to spend the whole evening being irrigated.
