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.

The Colonies is an open plan Taylor Walker pub with traditional décor and standard furniture that is faced by a bar that runs along the right hand wall. Standard and premium draught products were available during my recent Wednesday afternoon visit. The bar also supports five hand pumps, one of these was unused and another was off leaving Greene King’s London Glory and Scrum Down as the ale options alongside Tyne Bank’s Pacification. Food is available all day from the Taylor Walker menu.

I counted two televisions that were both off, but Sky Sports and BT Sport were both advertised. There was some background music playing. The single cubical in the gent’s toilets was tiny and had no lock on the door. Out the back of the pub are some covered high tables and four picnic tables that ran down a wide unused side street.

I’d maybe pop back in here if I was walking past, but I wouldn’t make a special trip.
