Wish we'd been made aware of the "30% discount if going to the movies" offer.

Arrived for a orebodies meal yesterday at 12:45 for 8 of us. No high chair available. Sat there for 15 minutes and no drink offered, no kids menus given to us. Gave up and went to Nando’s instead!!

We really enjoyed our first ever visit to Coal. The menu was varied, the food was well presented and tasted really good too. The service was very good. The waitress had a good knowledge of the menu, offered suggestions when we asked and was generally attentive.

Booked online almost 3 hrs prior our visit, got to the restaurant and they didn't have us down nor had they been notified one of our guests was gluten free. Luckily though, we arrived half an hr early at 5:30 pm and we were the first group (x5) in. Not sure about being given a textbook to see what we can and cannot have due to certain dietary requirements and definitely not impressed that there is only 1 book available for the guests to be expected to share. Our waiter was super and made a real effort with us. The only my daughter wanted was fish fingers which was the only thing not available but we weren't told in advance however, not a big deal as she thoroughly enjoyed her chicken lollipop! Our food was brought out in record time and all dishes were tasty! I cannot rate value for money as our guests sneakily paid however from what I remember mostly priced reasonably and we were all very stuffed!! Toilets were nice and clean as was the dining area. I'd recommend! Thank you.

Great food. Lovely place. Waitress seemed to be annoyed with us. No idea why. Long Island Iced Tea was the weakest / worst I've ever had (and I've had alot). Well definitely be back but won't be wasting our money on the cocktails and will do our best to avoid the grumpy waitress (i cant imagine she'll be there long anyway).

It was quite noisy and the service was a little slow but it was a very busy Saturday evening. Food was good and staff courteous and efficient.

We had a 5pm booking, had to wait a while for our drinks orders and food orders to be taken, but after they were given we received our drinks and food quickly.

The service and the waiters were very relaxed and easy to talk to, but the food was overpriced and quite frankly unenjoyable. Not worth the effort.

Service was excellent. I have complicated food allergies and the server went above and beyond to accommodate my needs and ensure I had the same tasty experience the other members of my party did (in other restaurants I’m usually me with bland, boring “safe” foods because it’s easier to just avoid 99% of the standard menu which defeats the object of eating out) Well done Coal 👍👍
