Easy and laid back. Good selection in food and quality is just what one would expects in a neighbourhood environment. Service is always good.

Love the place. However the foods taste bad and bland. Also, the foods are pricey! Totally not worth it

Colbar is sort of an institution. I have been going there for so long that I can’t even remember. The rustic charm of the place is unmistakable, and just sitting there and having their wide selection of craft beers can take the mind off anything....More

Run by such a friendly family I could've sat in the open plan eating area all day enjoying the chirping birds and eating great British food with a cold drink. Perfect if you're looking for a British breakfast/lunch

The place to come to if you want to unwind in the tropical heat. Rustic feel is the closest you'll get to rural living in the urban jungle that is Singapore. Originally setup to serve British servicemen this place is now a haunt of expats...More

The beef hor fun I ordered was subpar and the freshly squeezed lime juice was too sour to drink. But the ambience is unique, like a time warp to the 70's, a place for expats to hangout after a soccer game. I don't mind going...More

I get fed up reading bad reviews on this place. It is not a fancy place but serves its purpose well. It's your outlook on life, fun and other stuff that matters or maybe it's the company you hang out with. Just enjoy our none...More
