Out with team for work. Good service and still a nice atmosphere. We were in private dining room which was quiet. Food was good but definitely had better before. I had fish cakes, beef and then pistachio meringue. Pudding very good. Beef very fatty. Would go back but I've been c 4 times... read more

I haven't visited Cole's for a while because the standard dropped. It isn't the cheapest place to eat so your expectations should be high. The last time I went it was shabby & generally uncared for. However I am glad to say all is well again. We had a spectacular meal & will go back again soon.

For some reason it took us over 10 years to get round to trying this place. I only wish we'd tried it sooner. My wife and I enjoyed a very tasty meal from the decent menu. The service was very good and we enjoyed the fairly laid-back intimate setting. We'll certainly be returning.

There were 12 of us for dinner on a Saturday night. Staff were delightful and were very patient during the week as our numbers dropped. The food was fresh, tasty and beautifully presented and all arrived at the same time. Overall a very special meal and would not hesitate to recommend Coles

My wife and I tried Coles restaurant in Marlborough for the first time last evening (Sat). We had a reasonably early booking, 7pm, and it was relatively quiet when we arrived. First impressions were good, we were asked if we wanted a drink at the bar first but we elected to go straight to our table. The service overall was... More

I needed to meet up with some friends I hadn't seen in decades - one of the team booked this restaurant for Saturday lunch as it was reasonably central for all of us. Staff could not have been more friendly or helpful and the set munu washed down by one of the house reds was an excellent way to relive... More

Coles is my favourite restaurant & I have been there on numerous occasions which is a testament in itself as I have to drive 14 miles to get there. Coles has been run by the same people for years and they are always very welcoming, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food superb.

Another good evening at Coles. Always a great atmosphere with delicious food served by lovely friendly people, we always have fun and Coles would always be our restaurant of choice. Lots of different and interesting foods to try and interesting pre-dinner drinks. Loved the cucumber ice cubes for the Hendricks gin - definitely one to try at home. Thanks for... More
