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.

Good gastro-pub style food, round table for four of us which was very sociable. Decent wine lost, not crazy prices so would certainly recommend.

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

Lovely food! Service could use a little bit of additional training. Waitress didn't know their wine list and interrupted our conversation a few times when it wasn't necessary.

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!

Went there for Sunday lunch with a friend and was not disappointed. As it is October, the restaurant are having a Goatober month, we both had the shoulder croquette with beetroot for starters and the goat burger for mains. Both absolutely delicious. The burger was juicy, filled with spinach and bacon jam. Lovely meal. Try the plum and blackberry crumble which is made of oats. Very filling and definitely a good ending to a gourmet lunch.
The staff were very good, attentive and professional.

Great food, lovely veggie choices too. Original twist of favourites i.e. beetroot tarte tartin and then courgette flowers stuffed with hummus type filling - all delicious. Meat eaters loved pie of the day special and the steaks. All 5 of us had different choices and no one was disappointed. Would thoroughly recommend a visit. Easy to book a table and great service

Really like this pub as the main bar is quite lively and has a good selection of beers, wines and spirits. The dining room ins upstair and is usually very quiet. There were 5 of us and everyone had a good meal except me. Ordered the ribeye steak and I wasn't impressed with the cut. Lots of sinew, very thin cut and not cooked particularly well. Disappointing for the price. However, everyone else really enjoyed their meals and we had a couple of lovely bottles of wine. Not the cheapest of places but I would go again and try something else.
