Great food, great prices

We are at this restaurant while staying in the village for the weekend. I read the mixed reviews and some suggesting that since being taken over it had suffered and maybe gone down hill. All I can say is that based on the food we ate I can only disagree with those reviews. The food was very... read more

Excellent food and a great atmosphere. The restaurant always has a constantly changing menu, which uses seasonal produce.

Lovely restaurant with exceptionally good food. I like EVERYTHING on the menu - the ice cream with butterscotch sauce is a must! This restaurant is a really good find.

I stumbled upon this restaurant by accident. Parking difficult, but worth the walk from the high street. I had one of the best filet steaks I have had for a long time. Friendly service. Well worth a visit even if the seating can be a little cramped.

It was all very good! From the moment I call to make a reservation, until the moment I left the restaurant! Everybody very friendly, and kind. The food was top quality, we ordered starters, main and desert. We had to share desert, as the portions are good! Very cosy atmosphere! The only bad thing is that is not so easy... More

I have eaten at Coles, many times in the last few years and would recommend them for the great social atmosphere, the innovative menu and high standard of cooking. I think it represents good value aswell. Chris Boardman

Ate here for a pre christmas meal with friends. Had high hopes because some locals rave about the place. I wasn't wowed by the food, which although good gastro fayre, wasn't earth shattering. What let the place down but isn't mentioned much is the decor and toilets. I judge establishments on all merits and sadly this place does need a... More

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 before and food was better previously.

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.
