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

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.

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!

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.

Very small portions and therefore over priced for what you get. Service was good.

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.

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.

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.
