About Coal Grill and Bar Exeter
You can’t miss us - a smart city centre restaurant on a prominent
corner of Princesshay’s main piazza. Over two floors, you can enjoy views of the
cathedral and relax in our very busy cocktail bar.
The outside seating area is open all year round.
The food was all great. We had chicken strips and nachos to start which were delicious and then our main courses were even better! our party had chimichangas, burgers, fajitas and steak skewers and they were all great. I would definitely recommend this restaurant. It was quite quiet so the atmosphere was abit subdued but it was quite early in the evening. We couldn't fault the service - all our waiters were excellent.
I’ve dined at Coals many times and every time, the people I’m with and myself enjoy ourselves. The food is wonderful and the service friendly but professional.
Waitress was very attentive and therefore the experience was enjoyable - we commented on the good service, which can be hard to come by in other places at busy lunchtimes. All the food was tasty, and the chef accommodated a garlic allergy with care. Phenomenal value with the tastecard, but even without it would be ok. The music was preset quite loud, but staff were really happy to turn it down a notch when asked so we could chat more easily :-) Great lunch!
Service was prompt and friendly, and a pleasant environment (sitting upstairs). Food a little overpriced for what you receive, but nice enough.
Lovely atmosphere with family and friends. I felt the food was generally overpriced though.
Friendly and attentive staff despite being very busy, we had a good time. Will be visiting again.
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
Delicious meal, friendly staff
Good food and service
Good service and food. Cocktails are the best here.
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.
Me and friend, come here at least once a month and without a doubt have a great meal!
Fantastic evening at Coal. Great food, and a lovely atmosphere.
A pre-theatre meal - very good
We had a fantastic time. Thank you very much - will certainly return soon and recommend to friends.
Fantastic food and service
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. :)
Excellent service. Food was hot and very nice.
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
As always good food and very good staff myself and wife had a great meal
Excellent food and service as always
