“Consistently good”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

Been going to Coles once or twice a year for about 8 years now, consistently good food , service , and atmosphere . Even tonight it was quiet but still cosy . Not the cheapest menu but so much choice and the ice cream with hot sauce is the best pud ever!

“Good food, pleasant ambience, great service”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Saturday evening dinner with friends. Welcoming staff, comfortable and relaxing decor, interesting menu, reasonable wine list, efficient but unobtrusive service, and very good food. Parking is never easy and it is on a hill, but don't let this put you off. I'd go back just for the chocolate nemesis!

“Chef tried hard but failed”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

As a former Chef in The West End of London, I could see this Chef was trying to make his mark.

Unfortunately, his palate wasnt up to the job and the food was fairly bland.

Atmosphere was quite nice; fairly upmarket Bohoey (not a word) as as Marlborough ever gets.

Wouldn't go back

“Back on Form”
Reviewed April 7, 2013

I went to Coles on my wife's birthday with a certain amount of trpidation: some of the reviews had not been too complimentary with comments about unfriendly staff etc.

I am pelased to report that these comments seem to have been atken on board by the team at Coles. We had a thoroughly enjoyable experience.the food was good, well presented, fresh and tasting good. the wine list was reasonably priced, particularly at the upper end. the staff were friendly and informative. We would definitely go back again. Of the restaurants that are actually in Marlborough, I would definitely say that this is the best.
