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.
Lovely hot food. Attentive waiters. Clean glasses and cutlery. Sadly the desserts were disappointing and of a poor quality. I would eat here again but would give the desserts a miss.
I love Coal, have been lots of times and always recommend it. My Father in Law turned 60 this month and we wanted to arrange a surprise birthday meal. Many of the family members coming had never been, but I was telling them all how much I love it there so everyone was happy for me to book. Everyone arrived promptly, our waitress was on the ball with drink orders, then came the food orders. Bear in mind we were ordering our food at 7.30pm on a Saturday night....a number of us wanted to order the rump steak...you had NONE. No rump steaks at which is probably prime dining hour on the weekend, seriously?! Those wanting rumps settled for another dinner choice and everything came out quickly. The next c*ck up was my Nans dinner - she had ordered a chicken eldorado - what arrived for her was a chicken burger. The waitress was trying to say my Nan had ordered the burger when it was definitely not the case. I don’t ever recall seeing my 80yo grandmother eat a burger and she certainly would not have ordered one. After some persistence from my Nan, the burger was taken away and she waited 5/10 minutes for her correct meal to arrive - by which time, everyone else had already started eating so meals didn’t get cold. Thankfully the meals were delicious! Everyone was very happy with what they’d had, however I think a fair few of them would be dubious to return based on the fact that one of the most popular meal choices wasn’t available on such a typical evening for dining out.
Wonderful food and service even on a very busy evening, we'll definitely be back.
Great venue, lovely food, friendly service
waitress was lovely
It was very busy but as we had booked a table we went straight through. Got served very quickly and food was delicious and cocktails were great. Waitress was good and knowledgeable. Will definitely be back
Lovely staff and food
Staff were very pleasant and attentive..
Empty restaurant but staff still quite slow to react to requests
Very good food, great service. Will be coming back again.
Great place but ever so expensive for average food. Service great.
Lovely food and service just very loud but that’s to be expected on a Friday night
Good friendly staff, food was lovely
I have been twice recently - and both times have felt a little rushed to order. After that the service has been great. Only had the firesticks - but they are amazing! Very good value for money.
We arrived late but was still seated very quickly. The service was excellent and the food to die for
Good food with a wide selection of dishes. Really good service from attentive hosts. My only complaint, and I realise a lot of restuarants do this, they added an optional service charge to my bill. I always tip good service...but not at 13%! I'm sure many people will just lay it without saying anything....
Staff are friendly and helpful. Food very tasty and well presented
Our Waitress Zoe was very good.
Great service and food as always!
Absolutely loved our meal here, service was great and the food was amazing! Thank you very much :)
Good night and good service
Felt very rushed. I understand it was a busy night but my husband wasn't finished with his starter; yet the waitress was standing at our table waiting for him to finish, so she could take his plate. The food however was lovely, that was the only downside to our quick, short-lived evening.
Booked a week before for 5 people (4+1 child) via your website. Liked the confirmation email/process a day before the booking - very easy to complete. We were very pleasantly surprised that you had seated us in a booth (as requested) and that you had provided a high chair (again as requested), but mostly because you had provided us with child’s cutlery, crayons and drawing paper - my 3 year old granddaughter was VERY impressed! Your menu seems to have drastically reduced from previous years, but the food was really nice and service was excellent. We had a great family meal. Thank you.
Fantastic quick service
