“Disappointed”
Reviewed April 12, 2013

Have been to Coaster 3 times on previous visits and this time i was so disappointed
There is always quite a few of us as when i go it is to visit family
This time we went as an extended family (6 couples and 2 children) - we wanted to pay seperately and this seemed like such a problem to the staff
3 People had the gammon and they enjoyed that but the rest of us had awful meals - chicken that tasted like it had been incinerated.
The drinks are quite pricey and we paid as we ordered on drinks instead of adding to bills however when the bill arrived it was not seperate - all combined and so so complicated with drinks on it that we had already paid for..
I took charge of the bill and everyone paid the correct amounts for what they had ordered (i think) but this worked out that mine and my husband's 1 course southern fried chicken meals (so 2 meals of just the main course) came to £73.80 which was the balance still to pay after collecting everyone elses money and as the bill had got so mixed up with drinks on etc.
After asking for the bill to be separated this was really disappointing and even more disappointing was the burnt food - NEVER AGAIN - should have gone to JAKS - or even THE TERMINUS or THE QUEENS - these have been one thousand per cent better

“Ordinary, Uninspiring and with Zero Customer Appreciation”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

Coasters is a 'Family' restaurant, one of those places that offers you a range of cuisines from 'Mexican' to 'Italian' to 'American'. The problem is that it doesn't do any of its cuisines well, it's just ordinary or even poor.

But I'm not going to go into detail about the food, after all, it's budget - but it should be said that there's better budget available elsewhere for a similar price.

My major disappointment, which has made me decide that I won't be going back from choice is the attitude of the Managers/Owners.

The staff are OK, they do their job well enough and they are courteous.

However, when I go to pay a bill that's well into 3 figures, I do expect to be acknowledged, to be spoken to and even perhaps to receive a smile. I don't expect to be fawned over or grovelled to, but I do expect to be treated like a valued customer, rather than an inanimate object who happens to be presenting a payment card and who doesn't need to be spoken to other than to repeat the amount on the bill.............

So.......staff OK, food poor and the management leave a bad taste in your mouth......
