A sharing plates concept which means you get to try out lots of different things, and this is certainly a place you'd want to do that. We tried 6-7 different things and I could not pick a favourite. Each dish was excellent and the service was great, with staff who seemed to love working there.

TERRIBLE MUSIC WAY TOO LOUD! We had tried many times to get a booking at the Coal Office and were really looking forward to it. The decor was great and the food very good. However the experience was ruined by terrible middle eastern music with wailing at ear splitting volume. We had to ask for it to be turned down repeatedly as we could not have a conversation over it. It's a pretty high end restaurant not a night club. It felt to me like the staff were just playing for themselves with it loudest and unbearable near the kitchen area and a bit quieter, but not much, where we asked to be moved to.

It's a cool restaurant but not cool music. It went from middle eastern pop to George Michael. I can't believe that was chosen by whoever owns Coal Office and certainly spoilt the sophisticated Tom Dixon atmosphere.

Service was also slow but they were very busy. Food was great. If they just put some decent music on, and a lot quieter it would be a great experience, I'd come back, but we all agreed we would not after the meal. What a shame.

Absolutely outstanding in every way, genuinely one of the best meals we have ever had.
The service was just right, everyone was polite, helpful, attentive and very knowledgeable.

Food was out of this world - every dish had the most delicate flavours and textures, we were lucky enough that the chef came to visit our table and his passion and expertise shone through - couldn’t recommend it enough !

Absolutely outstanding. The MOST delicious food (we had just veggie stuff which was incredible), great disco beats in the background and wonderful staff - the waiting team could not be more helpful or welcoming. Best meal out in a long time, will be back!

Came with High expectations - food was OK, but not outstanding as expected - no consistency between the different dishes - some were great and some (like the fish tartar) had a very moderate and shallow taste.
Atmosphere is Great and so was the service.

The food was excellent although I was not asked how I wanted my steak cooked, which was a shame. I felt that the food would of been more filling if served with rice or chips.

Extremely good appetisers but, in the end, sandwiches are the very best!
And it was too noisy because of the music (genres for everyone, from salsa to electronic music).
