Atmospheric upstairs dining room - light and airy, fairly quiet with delightful service and food to match. Fairly traditional menu, but served with imagination and good ingredients.

My sons had eaten Sunday lunch at The Coach Makers Arms a month or so before my husband and I were visiting and they strongly recommended that we try it. We were going to a Fleetwood Mac concert in the evening so had a late lunch hence the restaurant on the first floor was relatively quiet. We both had the beef pie along with a side order of parmesan/truffle fries. It was all delicious - a nicely-served individual pie, melt-in-the-mouth pastry, very tasty filling with a variety of sautéed green vegetables. Definitely a step up from the average pub lunch. We would certainly eat there again and recommend it to friends.

Great to be sitting in the dining room on the first floor overlooking the mellow buzz of the street below. Was told we were there on venison day, so duly ordered a burger that was ok. My friend's fish on the usual menu was better though.

It was a Friday night and as the pub was so full and noisy they let us take up our table an hour early. They allowed us to try 3 wines before choosing too.

Food was just lovely. We had croquettes, chicken, burger and venison and all was delicious. Plus a great expresso martini.

Would recommend.

Service was intrusive - inexperienced waitress.

Food was very slow to arrive (although dining room less than half full). One main course arrived and it was a further wait before the other two main courses arrived which meant that the first main course was cold before we started eating.

Really unhappy about being dictated to by the waitress about a small (and unadvertised) sum being added to the bill for a charity. I donate regularly to a number of charities and object to being “charity chugged” in a restaurant. As we had asked for two separate bills we were charged this sum twice. It was not a nice feeling to ask the waitress to take it off the bill.

This is lovely casual dining spot with good food and wine. The staff are relaxed and friendly. It is a regular haunt.
The menu varies but always has a good selection to cover most tastes. The regular pies take you back to your mothers cooking but more exotic offers around meat and fish allows you to enjoy new tastes and experience.

Thank you for another lovely experience

The food was very goo. My ribeye steak was perfectly cooked and the chips were just right. The only real let down was that the staff were a bit disorganised, so the service wasn't great. But, not so poor that it would affect my decision on whether to return - which I will.

We absolutely loved our lunch. We were a party of 5 and were seated at a great table in a bay window. Everyone enjoyed the lunch, the food was excellent and the service in the restaurant was great - really friendly staff who were very attentive. Our only negative was the bar on ground level as the barman was very grumpy. One of us ordered a gin martini with vermouth, he disappeared for 10 mins whisky a queue was forming and seemed a bit perplexed about being asked to make one. Another party member asked for a sparkling water and again said that the barman was grumpy! A great place apart from the grumpy bar man and would recommend as the dining on the first floor was excellent.

Coachmakers is a great pub for drinks but a bit uneven on the food part. This particular evening the fryer was apparently broken so they couldn't make any fries, chips or similar. We only found out about this because we were ordering steaks and asked to change the chips to fries. When my friend first ordered her steak they didn't mention it at all, so it seemed like they had just forgot about it. Also, consdering most dishes had fries or chips as the side dish, you would think this would be something they would tell you straight off the bat, as we most likely actually would have gone to another pub for dinner had we known as there were now no side dishes that were that appealing.

We were pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was. There is a small menu on Saturday but everything is cooked perfectly. Kids meals were presented beautifully and substantial (reflecting the £8 price), the ribeye steak tender and cooked perfectly with a beautifully reduced sauce.

This restaurant is above a pub in Marylebone Lane. It is a lovely old pub with a lot of character. The seating is standard for a restaurant of this type. The menu is varied from babied fish and chips to steaks as well as an interesting themed menu, "goatober" during our visit. This was a menu of all things goat.

the goat loin was excellent, as was the fish and chip and the hake. The pies and often the flat iron steak are sold out early so yo might miss them

the plum and blackberry crumble is excellent but the Dark chocolate & sour cream cheesecake was disappointing.

The wine list is fairly extensive, a little overprices but you will find something to suit at a reasonable price.

the service was patchy but the staff lovely.

well worth a visit but just misses on becoming a favourite.

Got a voucher from Travel zoo - £40 for two which was a tremendous deal- as allowed a stater . main and sweet off the main menu ( rarely allowed on these voucher deals) and a glass of prosecco. The food was all very nice, service good and the general atmosphere in the pretty upstairs dining room very pleasant. A very enjoyable and good value evening

Very disappointing visit. Food not exactly amazing for the price- mine just tasted of salt. Very poor wine list - basically expectation was to spend £40 upwards. The staff admitted there was a whole in the wine list ( for decent reasonably priced wines) I’ve been to the Grazing Goat ( a sister venue) many times which I like...... this is not as good and there are a lot better places for a Sunday lunch in the area!
