Good from start to finish
The most amazing meal and most amazing staff who made husbands 50th birthday meal on le to remember! Would 100% go back and 100% recommend.
Meal was wonderful - we were sat upstairs which was quieter but that was fine for us
Staff was great and very friendly
Would really recommend
The food was fantastic and staff were very lovely. Will definitely be coming back.
The best meal I’ve eaten in some time! Fantastic steak, everything had great flavour to it and was beautifully presented.
Excellent food and service. We had fillet steak that was excellent quality and cooked perfect
Great food, great service highly recommend. Steak and Lamb were both excellent.
Lovely meal and service but the dining room was quite cold.
Lovely staff, great food! , service was great, best steak in brighton hands down!
Amazing food and service as always! Even at Christmas time the staff were brilliant and attentive.
Amazing food and excellent service. One of our favourite restaurants in Brighton.
Loved it not rushed out. Food fab! Very efficient and nice staff.
Really lovely, relaxed, friendly and helpful service; delicious food and wine, and a calm, perfectly judged environment and ambience. A perfect pre-Christmas (and lockdown), child-free lunch date.
Really lovely restaurant. Great atmosphere, beautiful food and good service. It’s not cheap so it’s more of an occasion restaurant. A must visit, can’t wait to return!
Great food, friendly staff and lovely ambience make a perfect evening.
Fantastic food - the chicken starter was devine, and the steak as one of the best I've ever had!
The staff were all so friendly and the food was delicious. I did think the service charge was a little pricey but overall a lovely evening.
We had a lovely meal on Sunday, the food was really delicious and the service was attentive. We arrived at 12pm as the restaurant was opening and were ushered upstairs. Had this not been my first visit id have insisted on being on the ground floor which had much more atmosphere. But my son and I had a great lunch and as it was his birthday lunch, they gave him a lovely birthday plate of truffle and marshmallow, which he loved.
The restaurant got everything right - welcoming, great cocktails, delicious food and wine, friendly service and a lovely vibe - just what we needed after a tough year......highly recommended
We love the coal shed. Highly recommend, the food is amazing
Fantastic! Mark, our waiter, in particular was amazing and really made the experience. Thank you!
great meal and lovely food. appreciated being moved to a quieter/safer table and did not even have to ask as the staff noticed our concern. we sat upstairs and were very well served by the waitress who was personable, helpful and full of enthusiasm. what a pleasure. I regret I do not know her name . good value and would highly recommend.
Always good best steak in Brighton
Amazing vibe and even better food. Shared the short rib. So much food and so delicious. Can’t wait to return!
The whole evening was utterly flawless. I took my boyfriend there for his birthday meal and from start to finish it was a fantastic experience; from the friendly, attentive service to the beautifully cooked steak and the confit duck that simply fell off the bone, they were the best meals we’ve had in a very long time! We would recommend it to anyone visiting Brighton and will 100% be returning in future! :)
4 of us met up for my boyfriends 50th birthday. It was a great evening, not a cheap night but food was fab, cocktails were awesome. The staff were helpful at all times and quick with drinks etc
Will definitely go again when we’ve saved up 😜
Fantastic experience even during covid times .... really lovely waiting staff and the food was as amazing as always
We had a great meal, the food was wonderful. Thank you.
Amazing food and attention to detail , polite informative staff .
Great atmosphere can’t wait to go again ....
Great food and lovely staff
Best steak I've ever eaten!! Lovely restaurant, friendly staff. Quite pricey but well worth it for the best steak I've ever had.
Great service, 10/10
Food, great little restaurant.
Food was absolutely delicious, really liked the decor although perhaps a little on the noisy side. Service was also excellent - would highly recommend!
Superb food and service. If you like quality meat cooked very well, then this is the place. Fillet steak, confit duck and octopus / scallops all amazing.
Lovely little steak house with a cosy and vibrant atmosphere, tucked away but right in the heart of Brighton. The food was all delicious, especially the fish taco starter, which was way ahead of expectations. The staff were friendly and polite. All in all, would definitely recommend, and in fact have told a few friends about it already.
We had the duck & lamb & both were nice,good portions & with flavour.
The waiter did not rush or keep us waiting which also added to a enjoyable evening & will return.
Arrived 10 minutes early, sat without being offered a drink as seemed to be a staff shortage exasperated by lack of training. As a customer I felt a hindrance rather than welcomed-most odd, All hot starters on cold plates-may suggest a plate warmer for chrimbo. No Sunday dinner available-apparently they can’t guarantee that after 5pm...told off for asking “we have been busy” Staff and decor seem tired and food pretty bland and garnished by an uncaring bricklayer ? .. not a complainer look at my other reviews.
We had a lovely experience, everything was amazing! Thank you!
The staff were very helpful and friendly. The food was not quite as good. We had a beetroot dish and a scallop and octopus dish to start which were both well presented and tasty. For the main course, we had a cod dish wish was fine, but nothing special, and a sirloin steak which was cooked to medium rare, but had not been seasoned, and was quite tough. When this was mentioned to the staff, they were a little less attentive and friendly!
The staff did help choose 2 very nice bottles of wine.
Overall, it is a nice place to go, but perhaps not quite to the standard of some other Brighton restaurants of similar cost.
One of my fave restaurants, the best steak, service and it was my birthday so the sweet at the end was really lovely.
