My Husband and I have been to Coles many times over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is always high quality (although the menu doesn't seem to change much) and service very good.
However, this time we decided to go at lunchtime and take advantage of their lunch offer, for a little Wedding Anniversary treat.
Sadly, going at lunchtime, without the usual buzz, atmosphere, dim lights and alcohol just made it very obvious that this lovely restaurant has begun to get a little tired around the edges and really needs a make-over and a little attention to detail.
It's the small things, like cheap Anti Bacterial Handwash in the Ladies, where you would really expect some nice handwash & handcream (how hard can that be?). Also, do they really need a framed Wonderbra advert from the 90's outside the loos still?!?
It wouldn't put us off going again, as it's a great place to meet up with friends in the evening and know you'll always get good food. But they are definitely trading on their past reputation and are badly in need of an update.
