Review: Coal Grill & Bar, Exeter

Last week, Ollie and I decided to go out for dinner to celebrate being together for one whole year! We had our first date at Coal Grill & Bar in Exeter so we thought it would be fitting to re-visit the restaurant which is based in Princesshay. I am a big fan of Coal having…
