Approaching the Three Colts, which is situated on an attractive street just minutes from the tube, the phrase "hidden gem" might pop into your mind. It's a lovely old building with gnarled beams, an eccentric layout and plenty of character. The nearby greenery of Knighton Woods and Lords Bushes lends the area a slightly rural charm too. Does the pub live up to its potential? On the evidence of our visit, it's a mixed picture. A range of reasonably priced bar meals, a (basic) wine list and relaxed atmosphere are all positives. Unusually, the pub is over-23s only, which keeps out the students and younger drinkers. However, of the two real ales on tap, only one was in drinkable condition, which was a little disappointing. Another own goal was the filthy state of the gents' toilets: graffiti, no hot water, no soap. Call us precious (we're not renowned for being over-fussy about hygiene) but this reflects badly on the pub's management and needs sorting. The Three Colts should rate as a three-pint pub, perhaps even higher, it just needs a little grooming. We'll be back again to measure its progress.
