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 👍👍

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

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 :)

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.
