Just had the most amazing meal cooked to perfection. Nice atmosphere, lovely waiting staff, every detail thought about. No music but noise of others talking was not a problem.

I have just taken my wife to Coles for a Birthday Meal, Great decision! She really enjoyed the liver, which I felt was a risk for someone who normally chooses a safe chicken dish. My meal was a real pleasure as the beef was as good as I have ever had in the UK. Desert was fab but the highlight... More

Coles Restaurant is situated uphill on a side road in Marlborough, but is worth making the journey out of the centre of town and away from the madding crowds. We booked on a weekday in August, but it was not necessary. The old, inviting interior is a great mix, I loved the old photographs of celebrities from stage, sport and... More

This is a lovely restaurant a short walk away from the main high street of the town. A friendly welcome and efficient and relaxed service. The food was very good and the menu varied. For a less formal meal we sat in the window seat in the bar area. The dining room is well appointed but I imagine when busy... More

We popped in for lunch, on spec and although orders had just closed they made us welcome. We come here about twice a year ; the service as usual was charming and friendly . The food was superb. We ate from the lunchtime menu but could have chosen from several yummy al la carte dishes. Starters Black-pudding salad, Vichyssoise, yummy,... More

A few of us met for lunch on a warm and sunny day and were greeted with the most delicious glass of prosecco with elderflower and raspberry which was an excellent start and we were able to sit outside which added to the ambiance. The menu offered a good choice and certainly delivered on flavour and quality. The staff are... More
