11th Apr 2012 - In the humble opinion of me this is Nicholsons best pub if you can catch it before it gets too packed. There are plenty to choose from in the area but this one does it for me despite the prevalence of confused tourists awaiting table service. Upstairs is a traditional old pub with some grand features and a selection of decent ales which do get changed. The alley provides some cool air on a hot day even if it is a little smoggy from all the smokers. On this visit we tried the food downstairs where there was table service and I was pleasantly surprised as the food was better than average (pretty good actually) and the service was good even if they were a little forgetful when I requested mustard. It never arrived which made me cry a little inside. The beer choice was less impressive as well I have no idea why, surely stairs shouldn't mean I get less of a beer choice. A good pub and well worth a visit especially earlier in the day as it gets pretty popular in the evenings.

17th Oct 2007 - A deceptively large pub on the Strand which is easy to miss or dismiss as a tourist trap. Both would be errors, as there is something about the ambience and atmosphere of the Coal Hole which grows as the beer flows. All in all, an easier place to walk past than to leave.

20th Jun 2007 - Large & dark underground pub on the Strand whose punters typically fall into one of two categories: the local office workers or lost tourists. Thankfully there are more of the former than the latter. Other than that, nothing really remarkable to say about the Coal Hole, it is a typical 'traditional' pub
