ROB Camra left this review about Cob & Coal

Recently opened micropub within Tommyfield market. It's run by Michelle Riley an experienced landlady and beer festival bar manager. She's also the wife of Chris Riley who has the Regal Moon in Rochdale, so plenty of beer knowledge in the family. Despite being in 3 units it's still tiny. There's only room for 4 tables and a few stools. Called in on Saturday with a couple of friends and were lucky enough to get a table. 6 handpumps with 5 on, Rat White Rat was on the bar, so that was the drink of choice for all our group, we ended up having another round before we had to leave as the market closes at 17:15. Given the small space it's nicely decorated and of course you pretty much have to talk to people as you're sat right next to them. A very good addition to the somewhat lacking real ale scene in Oldham.
