The Coull Quartet is an English string quartet that was founded at the Royal Academy of Music, London in 1974.

The Coull Quartet premiered some of the later string quartets by the composer Robert Simpson, who before his retirement and emigration to the Irish Republic lived close to the University of Warwick where the Coull Quartet have been quartet-in-residence since 1977. They also gave the modern premiere of Anton Reicha's String Quartet in G Major, Opus 48 No.2 (1802) at the 2003 Cambridge Music Festival.
