The Coal Shed
Our method at The Coal Shed is simple: the highest quality ingredients, sourced as locally as possible and expertly cooked. As well as a seasonal à la carte menu, we also offer daily specials, a great value express lunch and pre theatre menu plus Brighton's favourite Sunday Sharing Roasts.
Fantastic food and fantastic service! Definitely a favourite place to go to!! ❤️
Delicious food and wonderful service with a personal touch ❤️
Food tasted great, but could have been hotter. Good value set Sunday lunch, but kitchen seemed to struggling that afternoon. It didn't spoil our visit, just a little disappointing.
Beautiful food and welcoming atmosphere with very friendly staff. The Sunday roast to share is wonderful, and we very much appreciated the ‘welcome to Brighton’ plate (having just moved here) and numerous tips on places to see and things to do. We will definitely return again.
Food was fantastic, the atmosphere was lovely, people just talking over their food some people laughing and joking. Definitely going back
Great food, friendly staff. Can’t wait to come back again!
The food was exceptional, an extensive and excellent wine list, and the service and welcome we had was perfect. Ideal for small groups or couples.
Table was ready and waiting . Friendly greeting , food nearly excellent let down by what was really the last piece of turbot
Best Sunday roast in Brighton and amazing service! Will be back again and again
Love the steak and desserts. Quite different and special. They were fantastic. The only complaint is room is quite tight and no cloak room for jackets. Had to hang them all on the back of the chair.
Unfortunately we were disappointed, the food wasn't hot, and where we sat was drafty. Ambience good and service good/friendly, however I doubt whether we will return.
Great starters. Good main courses. Excellent service.
Had a fantastic meal and the service was brilliant as usual
We ate pre theatre and the restaurant was fairly quiet.. the service provided was pleasant although a little scripted. The value for many in respect of drinks was poor, with both the cocktails and wine being overpriced. The food was okay a steak cooked well, the chicken dish not as good. The restaurant is very dark downstairs and lacks. Any real charm. The stafff were friendly enough. I am not a great lover of adding 12.5% to the bill for service especially with the drink prices. With all the other eateries in Brighton I will go elsewhere in the future and would not recommend as it is overpriced.
This honestly was one of best eating experiences we’ve encountered, from start to finish it was utterly delicious and the waiters and service was fantastic, def will be returning here again soon ❤️
Read the most amazing reviews, but must have caught the restaurant on a bad night. Short rib croquettes were soggy, smoked partridge was over cooked. Ribeye was average and the chicken was dreadful. So dry and way too much chicken considering there was nothing but spinach accompanying it. Chocolate bar dessert was almost frozen and impossible to eat without spilling everything out of the bowl. I would like to go back, because a place doesn’t get reviews like the ones it has for nothing. But on this occasion, it’s only redeeming factor was the wine. We had a £130 for 2 of us, yet left feeling unsatisfied and hungry.
Attentive, unrushed service. Food was really lovely and good portion sizes. Comprehensive wine list too.
A great find, fabulous food.
This was the second time we visited in 2019 and we were glad we made a return trip! Fabulous food and service for a special occasion. The quality of the meat if excellent. The short rib croquettes are to die for!
The chocolate bar dessert was delicious - although not quite as nice as the one in the summer.
Great food loved it! Went for Mums birthday as she loves steak and it didn’t disappoint. I had the bream cooked beautifully full of flame grilled flavour. Absolutely delicious and perfect service. Will be back again soon. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
NYE - Food and staff were great. Will visit again for sure. Thank you
Great New Year's Eve Taster Menu, Excellent service and great location.
We will definitely be going back again.
Fantastic service, great selection of wines and wonderful steaks.
Great Sunday Roast sharing dish - fantastic price and the taste was amazing
Very cosy and atmospheric. Great ambience. Great food and service. Will be back for sure
We visited for lunch and had a really great burger and cheeky cocktail! Very enjoyable experience and excellent service. We’ll be going back for dinner soon.
Great steak! So tender, cooked perfectly with good selection of side dishes. Friendly service, sides could have been bigger but the flavours are amazing. We'll be back again!
Very nice experience steak a bit expensive staff very good 👍
Having been to the coal shed on many occasions I was keen to visit again after not having been for a while and knowing that the menu had changed. Disappointed that several choices on the menu were not available. Although friendly the service was poor and not attentive at all. The food was ok and that was it really. A lot of money for what we got .
Haven’t been here for a while so it was nice to revisit. They were busy so there was a really nice atmosphere in the place. The staff were really friendly and helpful and the food was really lovely. The only issue was they did mix up our steak preferences on cooking but they were really apologetic, offered us new steaks (which I refused as I wasn’t going to let two good steaks go to waste) and discounted our bill. Would highly recommend. Probably the best steak restaurant in town.
Been here a few times, it never disappoints! The food is first class and service to match! Looking forward to my next visit!
Our party of six thoroughly enjoyed our food and service and will all be back soon!
Staff lovely, roast was lovely. Beautiful wine and nice ambience.
Amazing Sunday roast - please make the smoked lamb available every week, it was incredible!
The service was a little slow but it was the Sunday before Christmas and very busy.
Ordered the Jacobs ladder as a starter, it was cold in the middle, had a steak on the bone for main which I asked to be left on the bone but came pre cut. Average food for above average price.
The staff were friendly, attentive (but not overly so), and efficient. Food arrived at the table very quickly after ordering. The steaks, as always, were amazing. The beef dripping chips were perfect. The only minor let down was the chilli and garlic broccoli; it was perfectly cooked and tasted of broccoli, with no hint of chilli or garlic to be found.
Overall it was fantastic.
Fantastic food ! Lovely service! We all had a great night.
We had the best evening at The Coal Shed, great atmosphere, amazing food and excellent service!
Our table was upstairs which was the perfect spot for a small group to have a good conversation while enjoying the lovely food.
Perfect knowledge of the food and great advice on dishes and drinks, we had a wonderful time and will definitely be back when we are in Brighton again (we live in NL).
Fantastic evening with great food and tentative staff. Thoroughly recommend and we will definitely be going back!
The steaks were good quality, b the food was served cold.
The waiter upsold us on the wine by £18 per bottle without making this clear when we ordered
We had to ask for assistance from the staff even though there were plenty of them
Really gone down hill since my last visit
Will not go again.
