My husband and I went here for tea on Friday evening. We sat down at a table with dirty plates on it, the waiter then came over and asked were we finished 😳 When I explained we hadn't even ordered he quickly took the plates away and wiped the table. For starters we ordered wings and pate. Neither were anything... More

The Coach, .as it is now called, but in latter years, best known as the Coach Inn, was renowned as one of the best night clubs in the area, its disco was always packed, and many a would be disco dancer went home disappointed, because of its strict rules on entry, but it also known for good food and lounge...

Recently visited The Coach with my family and was blown away by the extensive selection on the menu we all ordered off the 2 courses for under a tenner menu and when the food came out it was incredible the service was excellent and the only problem with the food was we had no room left for desserts! Highly recommended... More

Recently arranged a business meeting at the coach, 8 people dinning. Hadn't eaten here in several years but it really has upped its game. I had the blackened chicken salad and was more than impressed. Everyone In the party commented on the quality, having paid I can't complain at all about the value for money. Would definitely recommend.

Can't believe how horrible our dinner was in the coach. Absolutely disgusting. Never had as bad a meal before in my life! The ribs were a lump of slimy fat sitting on the plate. The chicken wings were far too hot which made them unbearable to eat let alone taste.. Complained about the ribs & the waiter seemed shocked as... More
