The restaurant itself was a bit dark and gloomy. The food was excellent but we just felt it was a bit overpriced for what it actually was. I'm ok with paying £28 for a steak but when I then have to fork out for potatoes and veg separately I get a little miffed.

We had the Roast Beef some bits were a bit tough and reheated potato’s bit dry. Vegetables were good and plenty of food for two of us. Overall very tasty. Service was great as was the wine.

Always brilliant.
Sunday roast is our usuall, superb, staff always so attentive and friendly, always a great vibe and a massive plus...if there is only 2 of you, you are seated not too close to anyone else.

First time for Sunday roast and it didn’t disappoint.
Only minor issues which wouldn’t stop us going back food could’ve been hotter. And could’ve make gluten free Yorkshire’s for our gluten free guest.

The food was very nice and was cooked excellently. The staff were kind and attentive and the atmosphere was very cosy. Ideal for a dinner date. The only issue was that I wish it wasn’t so expensive.

We had the excellent beef Sunday roast.
I've given only 4 stars for food and value just because the portions aren't terribly generous for £20 per head.

Waiter v good, attentive but not intrusive.
As a general comment, would ask that the Coal Shed enforce the wearing of face coverings by all patrons when they come into the premises or when moving about.

Great service from the off, quickly seated and drinks served. Porterhouse was fantastic, lovely and juicy and the blended rum & bourbon old fashioned to finish the meal off left me all warm and cosy inside. Keep up the good work!
