I remember the first time we were here. It was a Saturday night and we brought Waffles here for dinner. It was my first time at Wessex Village and I fell in love with the serenity and quiet beauty of this hidden gem.
Parking is readily available in the estate(but Wessex gets especially crowded on weekends so you might have to wait for a lot) and it will take you about 3 minutes to walk to Colbar from your car. It's easy to spot so don't worry about not being able to find it!
This was our second visit, after 8 months, and we brought Waffles again! No pictures of him though because he was busy playing with other diners haha
There's a rustic charm about Colbar that we really like
My pork chop with wedges and mushrooms - $10
The wedges were crispy and the mushrooms were juicy. The pork chop was not bad but it was a tad too small for me.
Chicken with wedges and mushrooms - $10
The chicken was really good! The skin was super crispy you can hear the sound of crispiness as you cut it. It was juicy too! Haha The sides were simple but great to have. The sauce is unique, unpretentious and yummy. It might be a little bland for some but throw in a little ketchup or chilli and it's all good. The portion of the chicken was pretty small though, X had to eat the wedges and mushrooms off my plate as he was still hungry
On our first visit, we both had steak and we liked them too!
The service staff at Colbar were friendly on both our visits, stopping by our table to play with attention-seeking Waffles. Haha. They serve ice water or you can get a can of soda at $1.70. Many love to come here for beer and I can understand why. It's a great place to just kick back and relax, with a few bottles of beer and great friends, your night is bound is to be awesome.
If you're one who loves a simple yet charming place, I'm sure you'll like Colbar. Nothing fancy but it sure has a great ambience.
