About Coal Grill and Bar Milton Keynes
Thrills and spills at Xscape with its bowling alley, the UK’s first 4-D cinema, climbing wall and super ski slope there is so much to enjoy before or after a delicious meal or drinks in our laid back, family friendly restaurant. We’re at the foot of the escalators and right next door to the skip slope so you can’t miss us.
Excellent service Food was nice although very expensive
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 👍👍
First visit but not the last :-)
Very good food and service, we have visited this restaurant twice and will definitely be returning.
got there early but were seated straight away. service was ok, food and portions were ok. fajtas better than chiquito. jambalaya was supposed to be spicy hot but wasn t but did not stop me from eating it. will visit again.
Friendly greeting, quickly seated, order taken quickly, food came without waiting too long. Friendly staff, helpful. Out of their hands - it was very warm which made the seats sticky!
Very nice steak perfect
The restaurant wasn’t very busy so atmosphere quite low but didn’t affect our meal at all.
Food was really good. Had an introductory voucher so that was a bonus! Service was good.
Slow service, not enough staff. Had to go to the bar to ask for a jug of water after ordering it with our drinks but want given it. Waitress swore while having 2 separate orders in her arms while standing behind our table. Very uncomfortable and didn’t eat my main as wanted to leave. Asked for it to be removed off the bill, it wasn’t therefore did not pay service charge. Won’t be returning to your restaurant and will not recommend it.
Great Service and Food
Service exceptionly poor. Food expensive and very poor. Nachos soggy and devoid of any meat that was ordered as an extra. Coal was my go to restaurant whenever I went to the pictures. I’ll be going to MacDonald’s next time
The service was quite abrupt and slow the food was hit and miss some of our party enjoyed it and some didn’t
After booking online for mine and my partners anniversary, we were very excited to return to Coals as we’ve always had great service and food before. Booked a table for 7pm, turned up and coals was closed! No email or anything to inform us this was happening. A Friday night as well so had a nightmare getting into anywhere else! Night ruined!
A little bit pricey for a family of 4.
The fire sticks were underwhelming, considering their price.
Had a really nice meal and our waitress was warm, friendly and attentive
The main let down was the service. Our waiter was very slow about asking us for our food order. Even though the restaurant was only half full. We were left with dirty plates for over 20 mins and then were asked if we wanted to pay. Nothing about dessert etc. We had only one drink as nobody asked about more drinks and ir was too muxh hard work to get the waiters attention. The only thing I would say, is that the waiter is very good at avoiding the customer eye.
Enjoyed our evening, service was great. Shame the place was a bit quiet.
Food is absolutely delicious, I’ve been to the restaurant on many occasions and food has always been amazing
Steak was fatty. Ordered chips but rice came out. Waitress denied the order was wrong. When bill came we were overcharged and was shocked to see service charge. Overall view is poor and i don't intend on returning. Bill came put £8 more than we worked it out to be.
More expensive than I would normally spend regularly, but SO worth it! We treat ourselves and travel the 45 minutes just to come here :)
We waited an age for our desserts but they were lovely when they came otherwise nothing else to complain about food was flavousome service was good
Enjoyed our visit to Coal yesterday, thought food was good quality & nicely prepared/presented. Staff were friendly/helpfull & we all agreed we would like to go back again.
Mine food was fine. But my partners calamari looked like it was cooked in old fat,her bearnaise sauce had a funny taste and sweet potato fries over cooked. The staff are attentive but don’t think after my partners food we will be back.
