Cabot Circus, Bristol, BS1 3BX

Just opposite the Showcase Cinema at the top of Cabot Circus, Coal Grill & Bar is a vibrant cocktail bar and restaurant with a fantastic offering of delicious grills, salads, burgers and steaks. Open for breakfast through to dinner and featuring a daytime deal menu, this popular venue has something for everyone. There are also vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free dishes. Upon entering Coal, the bustle of the shopping centre disappears and you find yourself letting go of the day’s stresses thanks to the relaxed and friendly ambience. Greeted by our friendly and welcoming host, my partner and I were seated in a comfy booth where we perused the fantastic cocktail menu, which includes mocktails and pitchers. We plumped for the two for £9 specials – my gin and raspberry Collins was delicious, and my partner’s Long Island Iced Tea was a perfect way to kick-start our evening.

As we sipped our cocktails and perused the menu, we shared three small plates of Coal nachos, red pepper hummus served with veggie sticks and grilled flatbread, and chickpea falafels. The menus offer great variety and it was tricky to choose from the tempting range of dishes.

To start, I plumped for Coal’s grilled halloumi paired with flamed peppers, roasted beetroot and a sweet balsamic glaze, while my partner enjoyed the house Buffalo chicken wings coated in spicy red Buffalo sauce and served with sour cream. To follow, my main course of sea bass was delicious and was served with samphire, new potatoes and lemon sauce. My partner had Coal’s famous firesticks; tender fillet steak, chicken thighs and prawns all grilled to perfection, and served with salad and fries. We admitted defeat and ended the meal with another palate-cleansing cocktail. If you can find room, the range of delicious desserts include lemon tart, Coal’s Eton Mess and a vegan chocolate and coconut tart, which gains praise from regulars. From perfectly proportioned starters to generous, flavoursome mains, we were impressed by the quality of the food and service at Coal Grill & Bar.
