Old Colwood pub’s future uncertain

The future of the old Colwood pub has yet to be determined

The fate of a historic Colwood pub is still undecided.

Most recently operated as the Cross Roads Bar and Grill and previously known for decades as the Colwood Inn, the 1936 Tudor-style building is sitting up on blocks, fenced in behind the former Capital City Centre construction site project at Colwood Corners on Sooke Road.

The Onni Group of Vancouver, which bought the partial development and the pub in a receivership deal when developer League Financial Partners became insolvent, is currently looking into its options for the former watering hole.

A company spokesperson said Onni staff are still working through documents from the previously approved development, but have no plans as of yet.

Back in 2012, Royal Roads University proposed to include the pub as part of its planned Upland Village student residence complex, but that development never came to fruition.
