The Coal Hole

Book Now Book online with our trusted suppliers


A stone’s throw from the Savoy Hotel and accompanying theatre, The Coal Hole was once, reportedly, the coal cellar for the luxury hotel. Since converted into a public house and now part of the Nicholson collection of historic pubs, The Coal Hole has kept its antique tiled floors and classic old English pub atmosphere.

Stop by for something to eat from the menu of traditional pub dishes that can be relied on to fill a hole. Make sure you save room for dessert though - the sticky toffee pudding is hard to resist.

It's also a popular hangout for thespians who pop in for post-show drinks from the nearby theatres of Covent Garden.

After arriving in London after a very long flight we decided to head out to a pub and grab some beer and food before calling it a night at our hotel. Aimlessly walking around the area, we decided to stop into the Coal Hole. Enjoyed our beers and especially enjoyed watching the hammered middle-aged Brits clamoring all over each other. Food was another story. My boyfriend had the fish and chips,... more

Needing a pint before going to see Kinky Boots we noticed this pub so popped in. Décor the same as years ago, not changed. Wood panelling everywhere, dark wood bar and stools. Old world comes to mind. Visions of centuries ago people sitting around in this packed London pub. Service was swift with hiked up prices. However, we are in the centre of London so what could be expected. Not a pub I... more

I enjoyed the beer tasting tour with Annie Power. She is very knowledgeable and generous. I walked in a 1 in beer knowledge, and left at a 10. She has worked in the industry over 30 years and it shows! What a wonderful spirit and atmosphere. more

The staff was very friendly and attentive despite the busy crowd. I recommend the gooey cheese with caramelized onion spread (I forgot what it was called). My fiancé ordered their fish and chips and... more

Long wait (about 40 minutes) for our meal and when it came out, our burgers were overdone/burnt. We were also upsold on water as the waitstaff did not offer glasses but automatically brought expensive bottled water. They were tiny so we didn't expect them to be as expensive as they were when we got the bill. We might as well have ordered pints! If you find yourself hungry in this area, take... more
