About Coal Grill and Bar Bristol
Coal has a burning desire to bring great quality cuts from field to table that don’t cost the earth. Fresh ingredients cooked over hot coals or served scorching from a stone oven, our flavours are bold, interesting and healthy.
Good service and food
I made a booking but upon arrival the other member of my party, who got there first, was told no booking had been made which I clearly had. It was t a problem as restaurant empty. Service charge should not be added on,
Great friendly service and excellent tasty well cooked food.
You did not have a gluten menu when we look on your online menu they were more things online that my wife could eat but at your restaurant, your staff said that the menu was for lunchtime and there were no fish on the menu and your staff couldn't say whether you had any fish at all, so we went to another restaurant, so we went somewhere else and had a lovely meal.
Booked for my birthday & everything was perfect: the food, service & atmosphere. Used to go to Coal nearly every week when they 1st opened in Cabot Circus & the decor/layout may be different but everything else was it's same old fabulous self. They put balloons up for me, gave me the seating I asked for & even stuck a candle in my desert! Be back soon! x
We had a lovely dinner on a quiet Sunday evening. Service and food were excellent. We were made welcome and given plenty of time to choose and eat dinner! Good food, good company. A resounding success!
Good food and service
Everything was /ok/. The food was alright, my partner had no complaints about his food, but I, on the other hand, felt a little rude stopping every few moments to spit out an olive pit which was included in the salad I ordered (in all fairness, the menu did lable them as seeded, but it just seemed like an odd choice). We ordered two mains and a starter to share which came to £46 - a little pricey seeing the portion sizes weren't particularly impressive and the food quality was nothing to write home about. I was glad we just ordered tap water to drink, or the bill would have been over £50, which for a quiet night out seemes a bit excessive. The staff themselves were polite and friendly, which is always a bonus! All-in-all it was worth a go, but I don't think we'll be in any rush to return....
We had pre-selected our order from the online menu as 5 of our party of 8 were arriving a little late. Unfortunately a recent menu change was not reflected online and food choices for 4 of our party were not available, meaning we could not go ahead and order. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful and worked hard to take orders and bring food quickly once everyone arrived. Food was excellent, and we enjoyed our evening which was a birthday celebration.
Lovely food and good cocktails
It’s the second time I’ve been to coal, and first in a group. We had such good service, the girl who served us (sorry didn’t catch a name but I’m pretty sure she had a cool facial piercing) was so lovely and couldn’t do anymore for us! Would definitely recommend and come back again. Plus the food is fab!
Staff friendly and accommodating
Food was outstanding. Service was outstanding. Fabulous place. Would recommend and definitely return.

Dear Tanya, Thank you for your compliments on our staff! We are happy to see you enjoyed yourself and we hope to see you again sometime. Best wishes, Coal Customer Service
Service was really good while ordering food and drink but when we said we didn’t want anything else we were ignored and had to attract the attention of the servers for the bill. As we had said we didn’t want anything else I would have expected the server to say they would bring the bill instead of having to wait for a high smo7nt of time

We’d love to put things right. Please, can you email [email protected] with further details (e.g. date of your visit) and we will be in touch?

All tasted good but would have appreciated adult sized wraps and pitted olives.
Dear Edward, Thank you for your review and feedback! We hope to see you again sometime. Best wishes, Coal Customer Service
My girlfriend and I had a fantastic pre-movie meal at Coal Cabot Circus. The service was excellent and our waitress was very helpful and attentive and helped us with menu options we had overlooked. The food was served quickly but we didn’t feel rushed. The burger I ordered was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had and the quality of the wine was also great for the price point. Getting a discount (as we were seeing a film after) was also a nice touch and we will definitely be making this a regular part of our cinema visits to Cabot Circus. Finally I would like to make a special mention about our server Laura MM who did everything right from letting us choose a table to helping us with menu choices and with a constant smile and enthusiasm I rarely see in restaurants these days.
Dear Chris, Great to see you and your girlfriend had such a wonderful time with us! What movie did you go to afterwards? We love our staff just as much as you do and thank you for all the kind words. We can't wait to have you back soon! Best wishes, Coal Customer Service

Dear David, Thank you for your kind words! We are happy to see you enjoyed your time with us and hope to see you again soon. Very best, Coal Customer Service
What spoilt I evening was a 15% service charge that is added to the bill.we allways tip when we receive good service but for you to decide how much I find totally unacceptable. I am interested to know how much of that actually goes to the staff.as paying customers we shouldn't be made to feel uncomfortable buy asking for the service charge to be removed, we should be able to decide whether to tip or not.totally ruined our experience
Dear Sally, thanks for taking the time to give this feedback - we'll pass it on to our area manager and we will ask our servers to ensure that guests are aware of the service charge on forehand. We can also ensure you that all our tips go to our staff. Still, we hope to see you again soon! Coal Customer Service
