Great pub, very friendly staff, good ambiance. Well kept beer and good selection of gin. Food currently limited to sharing platters; the sharing platter of cold meat and cheese makes a decent lunch for four people.

The owners, Craig and Amy, along with all their staff are always so friendly and welcoming. They have transformed the Colinton Inn and created a wonderfully warm and friendly welcome every time you go. Great to have them back. They deserve every success in the world.

Absolutely terrific! I first visited the pub during the half lockdown, where only beer gardens were open due to the COVID-19. It hosts a two tier beer garden and charismatic, friendly bar staff. I can't wait to return now the restrictions are slowly lifting.

5/5

The Colinton Inn serves a cold platter of cheeses and cold cuts which is very popular and perfect for a light supper. For my wife and I it is our local and, under current management it has deservedly grown in popularity over the last year or so.
It has a lovely friendly atmosphere with a good range of real ales, gins and malts and is dog friendly.
It is well worth a visit if you want a relaxing time and everyone will make you feel very welcome.

We used to pop in every now and again to the pub before lockdown but since it has recently reopened we have already been in twice. Staff are so friendly and make it such a fun and relaxed environment to be in. Definitely recommend!
