Coal, Cabot Circus, Bristol
Coal has been around for a while now, having been started by the owners of Severnshed on Bristol Harbourside, now having eight restaurants around the country including Wimbledon and Exeter as well as the Bristol restaurant we visited.
The relaxed, barbeque style atmosphere is apparent as soon as you walk in and see the fresh food being cooked in the open kitchen on hot coals.
Coal’s menu is quite broad and covers salads, burgers as well as the special half chicken which is available with a range of rubbed spices.
The staff are friendly and attentive without pestering you and you never feel rushed, however busy they are. Overall Coal provides a real alternative to the usual pasta and pizza options and is well worth a visit next time your near one.
