“The 'Part Time' Pub”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by 373Gomez (1 review written)

Monday-SHUT, Tuesday-SHUT, Wednesday-SHUT, Thursday-SHUT, Friday-WHEN HE FEELS LIKE IT, Saturday-DEPENDS WHAT FRIDAY WAS LIKE, Sunday-MICROWAVE LUNCH. Yeh!!! Then has the cheek to say he cannot rely on local trade?, well try being open then!! By the time you get there and order a drink he will be calling 'TIME' with the lack of hours he does. I reckon he must be on a 'ZERO' hours contract, ZERO PERSONALITY and ZERO OPENNING TIMES!!… Read Full Review

“Excellent real country pub”

Written on: 02/08/2014 by Griffith1957 (1 review written)

My partner and I had a meal here a couple of weeks back and only just got round to writing a review. My partner is from London and was amazed at the location and setting , she was then even more amazed when the landlord I think said he would call the ducks up for a feed. Even the tiny ducklings made an appearence. The atmosphere and service is very good and the only criticism I have is the size of the portions , and its not that they are too small but they are absolutely huge… Read Full Review

Excellent food, good selection of beer and ciders. Always a warm welcome from them. And the surroundings by the river on a warm summers night take some beating. What more can I say except try it for yourselves, you will not be disappointed !!!!… Read Full Review

“chicken poo and wanna be landlord with your baguette”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by Frazier249 (1 review written)

sat outside recently with a friend, lovely warm evening, and had the delighful stench of chicken and duck faeces to add to our meal. the whole grounds outside looks like a gypsy site. and as for the motor mouth behind the bar, not everyone wants to listen to your annoying voice. overpriced menu for microwaved meals also. wont be returning and suggest that for your poor ears you dont, so you havent got to listen to the fake know it all, rude barman… Read Full Review

We have been dining at the Coal house for many years, i must say i have not had one bad meal, i have always recommended my friends and family, i am very shocked to read such garbage, the land lord and staff makes you feel very welcome, it is nice to see a land lord to go out his way and talk to you. as for the microwave meals what a load of rubbish. When reading this review it do come accross a very bitter jealous person writing this. You only have to turn up on a friday / weekend to see how busy it is.Oh well i suppose you cannot please every one. Keep doing what you are doing as, as we certainaly will carry on popping over to see you

Nice position by the River Severn, landlord was very friendly. My husband had steak on a stone and I had braised steak in whisky and peppercorn sauce. Both meals were superb and the service was very good. We were on holiday, but if I am in the area again I will go back there… Read Full Review

“Hidden Gem!”

Written on: 05/09/2013 by Miskins (1 review written)

The Coalhouse Inn was recommended to us by a friend and what a recommendation it was! Perfectly set by the banks of the River Severn with views over the Malvern Hills - we enjoyed local cider and very generous portions of lovely pub grub! The landlord was friendly and welcoming and his managery of birds (both wild and pets) were an added delight! We will definately be back!… Read Full Review

“Location food staff fantastic”

Written on: 31/08/2013 by tonyeast88 (2 reviews written)

Steak on the stone with Herbie potatoes a must. The landlord is a character who has a kind heart and always up for a laugh. The setting is fantastic and friends drive up from Bristol as it is also their favorite inn. I have always had a good meal and try to go twice a month or more if possible. Thanks and in the words of Arnie " I'll be back"… Read Full Review

“Friendly pub, good food”

Written on: 31/08/2013

A lovely riverside location, excellent choice of food hard to choose what to have, lovely big portions cooked to a turn. We did not have the steak on the stone but the smell was fantastic. We went for the ham egg and chips... yummy Staff were friendly and service was quick despite it being busy. Watching the sun go down over the Malvern Hills... blissful way to finish the day. Thank you and we will be back again soon … Read Full Review

“Basil Fawlty Exists”

Written on: 26/08/2013

An amazing experience in customer relations by the landlord. The two Aberdeen Angus Burgers were hard and difficult to cut and trying to chew them was like the jerky in Paraguay. When brought to the attention of the landlord he went mental telling us we did not know what we were talking about and that the burgers were perfect, that was quite possible if they were made from the hide of the cow. The landlord instructed that we never return, I do not think there is any chance of that, but if… Read Full Review

I visited this little gem today with my girlfriend we were looking for a spot by the river to have a nice pub lunch, i came across the coal House on google and decided to give it a go rang first and booked with a nice well mannered girl, got there was greeted by the landlord who was very friendly and continued to explain all the ciders as i was interested in them (GL is the best in my opinion) and also let me try them before deciding he was extremely friendly and welcoming. We sat outside… Read Full Review

“An aggressive know it all as per a previous comment! ”

Written on: 10/09/2012

I was on a friends motor cruiser moving down river when she started to run into the last of the flood tide (I forget to add an hour to the tide predictions). No problem my friend said there is a pub with landing stage round the bend, we'll stop for the last half an hour of flood, grab a drink and check out the menue for a meal on our return journey (my friend is retired from ships pilot service and has an offshore yacht masters ticket. He is also a qualified Marine surveyor). No sooner had we… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/08/2013

couldnt disagree more i went to this inn for a meal today, i was warned health and safety issue with the health and sefety issue regards to the mooring to write a bad review about a pub that you havent even visited is beyond me and useless info the food was brilliant the staff also and the cod i had was the best i have ever tasted all prepared and cooked by the landlord on site couldnt ask for a better pub or location, in my opinion that review is entirely unfair and based on a personal annoyance of a situation rather than the pub or services,

I WILL be visiting this pub again and will be bringing friends to share this great little spot with them. trust me the food is fantastic i recommend the cod which was better than anywhere else i've been and 'ive been to quite a few.

Ryan.

regards Ryan.
