Didn't like the fact that the service charge was added to our bill without asking first if we would like to pay this charge. It was only because I questioned the bill that this payment amount was highlighted to me.

Food is very over priced for what it Is, basically a half decent burger and chips. Added £16.00 service charge without telling us, luckily we checked the bill!! I don't think I would pay their prices for the food that's available

We are always trying to source the best quality and value products for our menu so that we offer excellent value to our customers and remain competitive in our offering. If we offer an example of a comparative burger from one of our counter service competitors - the cheese burger there costs £8.55, fries must be purchased on top at £3.45, coming to £12, at Coal our cheeseburger including fries is £9.95. So you could make a good saving by visiting Coal.

The only thing that annoyed us was the automatic adding of a service charge. We were on a table of four, who ate a regular meal, you’d probably have got that in tip had you not done that. The food and staff were excellent.

Bottles of coke very expensive! Attentive service and food OK.

We are happy that you enjoyed our food and service. Coca Cola retained all it sugar so the price also includes the sugar tax making it more expensive than other options - have you tried Coke Zero, made to taste like Coke but with less sugar and hence less £ ?

For a busy Friday evening, the food was on time, veg on the Christmas dinner was a little harder than we like and more meat could have been on the plate but other than that all the food was lovely.I would return for sure. We have a tastecard so will be back in January.

The price was over the board, compared to other places I have visited. Even with the Taste Card discount (they did not scan my Taste Card though, they use their discount from their system), the price came to over £14 above what I would have paid in one other place I know. The atmosphere was great, staff friendly, doing their best. Good food. It was not busy when I brought my family, so I do not know how it would be at peak hours. There is a parking (no free though) under the place, making it ideal if coming from a distance with a car.

Really lovely meal. Did have to ask to move table due to 1) worn/split cushioning on bench seat full of peas and 2) Low hanging light was giving me a headache. The service was very good and food delicious.

This is the third time in a couple of months I have eaten here.The first two occasions were with my husband and we had excellent food. Our drink order took a while to come, it was a busy Saturday evening. On our last visit we brought our children so there was four of us. The food was excellent with one exception. My husband enjoys a sirloin steak and this was cooked perfectly but it had a considerable amount of fat which was inedible and disappointing as it was his birthday meal. The drinks also took a long time to come again.

We booked a table for 8 as a meal for after our wedding. Couldn't fault the service, the food or service. They had decorated a table for us, and offered us a free bottle of prosecco which was a lovely touch.
