About The Coach

Having been a drinking destination since 1790, this site is steeped in history. The team look forward to celebrating this through the design of the bar and garden dining room. An incredibly light and airy space, which overlooks its storied beer garden — toast its new incarnation over duck confit with lentil, walnut and beetroot salad or poached brill with violet artichokes and monk's beard in the dining room, or even with a side of pig ear crisps from the bar menu.

Amazing food. Sort of a posh feel compared to a usual gastro pub. You get what you pay for! Will be back.

Had a fantastic experience. The delayed start was a bit of a challenge (trying to keep our very hungry friends in order...) :-) but once we got going the service and quality of the food were truly exceptional. Great experience.

A hopefully forgettable experience. Arrived at 1pm, restaurant was largely empty. Despite this the staff were inattentive and the food eventually arrived after 2pm. That was far too long to wait but not the biggest concern. One of our party has an Onion allergy and had raised this fact with the waiting staff. Unfortunately the salad garnish she received was infused with Onion and her allergy then kicked in. She's already received an unwanted hair in her Onglet. Food for the rest of the party was good. Money was deducted from the final bill for the unacceptable 'oniongate'. Overall a disappointing time though it is fair to say we have been there before and had a much better experience.

First class venue with expertly prepared seasonal food, keenly priced wine list and charmingly friendly service. Seated in the upstairs dining room which was cosy and well spaced. I suspect the downstairs dining area might be a bit noisy but still worth it for the food. Recommended

Food and drink were fabulous, service was also excellent. The lamb, sea bass and the porterhouse steak were magnificent. The only issue is that the dining room is very noisy - I think this is a simple acoustics issue that you could fix quite easily because the individual tables weren't being particularly loud. It's a shame because everything else is perfect.

Food, service, decor all fantastic, just found it way too noisy. We struggled to talk to each other which made it annoying during a business lunch.

Bitterly disappointed. Sunday lunch. Pre lunch drinks went astray, I had to get them brought over. First courses excellent. However 2 Roast beefs were truly awful. Cold, tired and utterly unappealing. Manageress tried her utmost to remedy the situation but by then we had completely lost our appetite. It was late in the day but that's no excuse. Vegetables in particular had been cooked to death and then left lying around. Also the background noise levels make it extremely uncomfortable.

The restaurant and food were great, but the waiter who was looking after us in our private dining room seemed to be on his first week in any waiting job. I had to repeatedly ask for drinks to be refilled, for the first course to be taken away, for the second course plates to be taken away, I had to ask twice for the bill etc etc. It took us 45 minutes to be served our first course, and if we hadn't proactively asked for drinks we would have been sitting there at an empty table. It's a shame because the food was great (although the lack of any carbs with the main sharing platters was unusual) but I would not come back here with a group.

Food universally excellent. We were the only table upstairs and as a result , 1. no atmosphere and 2 service slow - I had to go downstairs to ask someone to take our coffee order. Two of us are due to come back again on Monday in a party of three . Please can we be downstairs ! John
