About Coal Grill and Bar Basingstoke
Our fiercely flavoursome dishes are freshly prepared & grilled over blisteringly hot coals, using local ingredients sourced from our favourite farmers.
Lunch menu seemed reduced compared to previous visit. However, food very good, prompt, polite service - accommodated extra unexpected guest with no problem. Would definitely recommend
Excellent food and excellent service
Was a quiet day and quite early for lunch so atmosphere scored mid range, I’ve been at busier times and it’s great. Great menu choice and very tasty. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Worth the extra.
Very happy with the whole experience, my steak was excellent and my partner and I had a lovely time.
Hi Tim, so glad to hear that you both had a lovely time and that you enjoyed your steak, we hope to see you back again soon!
We were surprised how good the food was and what good value the meal and wine were. We particularly enjoyed the beef fire sticks, the sweet pepper, tomato and rosemary veg that came with them was delicious!
Hi Fiona, we are so glad to hear that you enjoyed the beef fire sticks, we hope to see you back again soon to try some of our other dishes.
Made a choice of tagliatelle and beef, no allergen advice for chilli or spices added to the dish, was totally shocked to have had a mouthful to find it was very hot in spices, I’m not a fan of spices due to intolerance of some spices, I have since suffered a bad stomach on Saturday after around 4 hours into Sunday. I made another Choice of grilled chicken in a bland tomato sauce which I feel didn’t justifie around £19, I was disgusted to be honest, left without dessert after making a fuss about coal and how lovely it was, I guess things change, I feel that the food has gone down in choice furthmore not being advised of allergens in the foods. Although I signed up to receive a £10 discount, I feel that I won’t waste my money unfortunately. Coal was once a great place to eat.
Hi Victoria, We’re really sorry to hear you have been unwell and we take this very seriously. Could you please email [email protected] with your details so that we can look into this in more detail? Many thanks, Coal
We reserved a table for breakfast. Excellent service, and great value for money. Highly recommended, will definitely visit again.

Best restaurant in Basingstoke
Hi Mark, thank you for the great feedback, we hope to see you back again soon!
Very small portions and therefore over priced for what you get. Service was good.
Great evening I was so surprised that we could book a table at 10.30 at night it was brilliant to eat after the theatre
Fantastic service, friendly and efficient staff. The food was delicious and hot. A positive and very enjoyable experience, would definitely recommend.
Amazing service and great food. Will definitely go again.
Great night out, was promptly seated and offered drinks. Service was excellent and the food and cocktails were lovely. Brilliant organisation from all staff, will 100% be going back
The food was good, I have had better meals here. we had to wave for attention, it felt like the staff avoided eye contact at all cost!!! But when we did get there attention they were very friendly and helpful. Other wise it was a nice evening.
Service was a delight and the food was delicious!
I was disappointed in the lack of choice on the menu. Lots has been removed from it and I was gutted the frozen black Irish cocktail was removed. The food was lovely but was shocked to see that the child's meal had more fries than the adult meals. Bit expensive for what we got.
Always good food and service.
Staff are usually very friendly, not usually a long wait for food and the atmosphere is quite nice. I love Coal personally, good mid range restaraunt for the money.
Good food giving value for money. Polite and friendly staff. Very pleasant atmosphere.
From the moment we booked our table, phone communication, greeting, service, food.. everything was excellent. Lovely quiet atmosphere, delicious à la carte even for breakfast, not boring buffet. We were a group of 13 people and I must say, whatever each of us ordered, all dished looked and tasted amazing. I strongly recommend
Unfortunately we had a bad experience with our waiter who’s name I cant remember but had an American accent. He had been great up until the point of paying the bill where we charged an additional cocktail which hadn’t been ordered. When we questioned the additional cocktail the waiter was very rude and quite aggressive when walking away from the table. Although he refunded this cost which was appreciated we thought his manner was quite distasteful and he could have handled the situation a lot better. This was a shame as we had a great experience up until that point which was our first outing.
Absolutely bowled over by the service we received at Coal. Nothing was too difficult especially as we had a party of 50!!! Thank you.
Really enjoyed the meal
