A sizable corner pub, upon approach I could see a hand written sign taped to the door,proclaiming "Cash Only", not being a problem I entered to find a few locals gathered for a Sunday lunchtime session, It's all standard stuff inside ,mixed seating styles, floor a mix of wood and carpet, there was a pool table in use and the telly had Coronation Street on with sound subdued but helpfully subtitles if indeed thats your thing, It's not mine. Two handles on the bar , Youngs Bitter and Twickenham Redhead, clip turned on the latter. The quality of the Youngs was poor and in fact everyone else were drinking the Lager or Cider. It is what it is but I am unlikely to be tempted back.

A locals' pub with an L-shaped interior, part wooden, part tiled floor with rugs, numerous doors are testimony to the once multiple roomed interior. Lower walls are painted in a vibrant red colour, the front area has a pool table with an associated collection of trophies in a glass case nearby. Seating is traditional with a narrow raised area to one side at the back, the TV had the football showing on various screens.
The two handpumps are not immediately obvious, being down the long side rather than the front of the bar as you enter, so go and look. Sunday afternoon had Twickenham Grandstand with what looked like another Twickers ale clip reversed.
It's a popular pub, very close to Gipsy Hill station but I found the abundance of drug notices and the unwanted attention of a seriously ratted if inoffensive customer to be off-putting.

The Colby Arms is a decent looking pub that is very handy for Gipsy Hill train station.
Once inside there is a single L shaped room with the bar facing,the room is carpeted and has normal tables and chairs plus a few pew seats to the front,the rear right side has normal tables and chairs and one leather settee,there was also a real fire on the go in this area,there was a TV above the fire showing the Norwich v Sunderland game,there is a pool table to the front left and another TV here which was showing horse racing.
There were no real ales on the bar or keg bitters so had a drink of Guinness Extra Cold which was as bland as it usually is.
This is a decent enough pub that was let down by the lack of one real ale.
