Food was not great, had to wait 20 mins then prompted staff for the bill collection. Could understand if it was busy but is wasn't with only 3 table occupied. All in all a poor experience

The poor waiting staff were extremely busy, you needed at least another two wait staff on. The fajitas were extremely spicy- no warning on the menu- actually caused me to struggle to breath properly for a few minutes. I did raise this with the waiter and was told fajitas are spicy- as someone who eats fajitas regularly out I can assure you these were by far hotter than I have ever had before. Drinks were good, atmosphere was good despite a very rowdy drunk group of lads.

Good main meals with excellent service. Deserts need work and not value for money.

All the food was very over cooked and tough, causing half our party to barely touch their food. We had to ask several times before recieving a jug of water, or any napkins or cutlery for the table- as there was no sufficient cutlery in the table when we were seated. Having been to Coal before, i wouldn’t return and will thoroughly not recommend this branch to others.

When we arrived we waited to be seated the waitress took our name and disappeared then we kind of just followed her she didn't really show us to our table or speak to us at all :( a hi hello please take s seat would be nice. Food was good little pricey but Service was disjointed luckily one of the girls was great so we left a 10% service charge if it hadn't been for her it would have been 0%. Easy online booking and comms good though. :)

Not a great evening food was ok we only had a pizza and sides the salad was a joke a tiny bowl. The 2-4-1 cocktails were served in a tumbler like glsss and loaded with so much crushed ice I was like drinking a slush puppy and could even taste the alcohol.

Felt rushed, was told we were only allowed our table for an hour and a half, our food came within five minutes of ordering and felt that the table was needed for something else which is why we were served so quickly

Firstly, we were presented with the order of someone else instead of our order. Secondly, my burger patties were over cooked, making them rock solid and very tough to eat. Finally, the price of the steak meals are very over-inflated considering the size of the steak itself

Out of all the high street food chain restaurants Coal is a favourite with our family for its great choice of main meals, good customer service and the best bit is we can use our Taste Card!!!

We had a really lovely time, the food was awesome. I ordered the skewers but felt like it could use some more meat with the price given. I only had 4 tiger prawns with a lot of tomato sauce, too much maybe. The sides were perfect! Really nice beer, me and my boyfriend had a nice dinner! Thanks for the great service. Naomi
