The Coal Shed Brighton
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.
Great meal as always for my husbands 50th birthday. No Complaints at all with the food, service or ambiance but think the service charge for 2 people was very excessive! Our waiter was brilliant though 😄
It was a very nice evening with fine food for four people. Thank you.
We visited the coal shed last year and thoroughly enjoyed it
This weekend I was taking part in the Brighton half and stayed the weekend so we invited friends to join us on Saturday it was delightful the staff was lovely and food was excellent
Lovely touch the Birthday dessert, thank you!
Food was amazing but it’s the staff who make this place special. Especially David!
Amazing steak cooked to perfection. Great service. We had a lovely evening. Thanks
Staff are lovely . Cosy space , tables a bit small and close together .
Pricey £26 for a steak plus £4 for a handful of chips .
Good wine list but few that can be had by the glass .
Overall nice evening
4 friends; 2 local, 2 from London. We try a different restaurant each time they visit for lunch . First time for all of us. The restaurant is in a prepossessing street, but is lovely inside - lots of room between the tables and we had a corner table. The staff were friendly, I was pleased that they sold Seedlip (I don’t drink). The Menu was interesting and the food went down very well. The starters were particularly nice. We had lamb, chicken and fish for our main courses, which we all liked, although the chicken was slightly overdone so a bit dry. The broccoli side dish was yummy! We didn’t have desserts because none of them seemed that interesting, but the coffee was good. The price was very reasonable and the staff efficient.
We will go again and recommend it - Id like to try it for dinner.
Steak was very fatty. £4 for a side of beef dripping chips, I got about 6 chips and they were very plain. Not good value for money
We visited at lunchtime and were the only diners so we can't really comment on noise levels.
Food was very good, do try the cauliflower starter !!, and the service was excellent.
A bit on the pricy side but worth it.
Visited for Sunday lunch, which was absolutely delicious and the dessert was very special!
Very relaxed vibe and the service was excellent . Will definitely be back.
We loved the relaxed feel of this place, felt like being at home which was great ..
Staff were very attentive & friendly - looking forward to going back soon ...
I ordered the ribeye steak being 1 of my favorite cuts , i know ribeye is fairly fatty but the piece I was given was around 70% fat , when I told the waitress I wasn’t best pleased her response was ribeye is very fatty !! But I’ll speak with the manager to see if can get off the bill, I wasn’t told the outcome of the conversation, I asked for the bill and see £6.50 was taken off, I wasn’t totally impressed to be honest as the steak was £28 , the manager come over to take a card payment & asked me why I complained about the steak , when I told him I’d eaten ribeye in many restaurants over the world & never had nothing with that much fat , his response was (I’ll have to have a word with the cows ) I didn’t appreciate the sarcasm!!! I will 💯 not be returning or recommending the coal shed !!
It was an amazing Valentines dinner...
The restaurant was fantastic and everyone was just great! The food was absolutely fantastic from starters to desserts. Would definitely recommend to a friend and will visit the London restaurant for sure!
Fabulous food and our steaks cooked exactly the way we wanted, plus exceptional service. It was a perfect way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The waitress we had on our table provided exceptional service. Perfect timing topping up our glasses and removing our plates when finished.
We Will definitely be back!
Excellent food and service. Thoroughly recommended.
The waiter was excellent. We had a number of dietary requirements and he was able to help out with all of them, even asking the Kitchen for some "tweaks" which were then delivered.
The Olive and Potatoe bread is absolutely delicious. I know this was a place for a steak but all three of us has the Fish and it was excellent. Excellent wines too.
Wonderful evening thank you. Great food and service with very good ambience.
Last minute decision for Sunday roast and we were not disappointed. Warm welcome on arrival and shown to our table. Drinks arrived followed by the food. Definitely recommend and would go back again if visiting Brighton.
Fab lunch always good food and good size portions.
We went for 21st birthday lunch celebration ... we loved the whole thing !
Went here for my husbands birthday we have eaten here before and we’re so delighted to say it’s as good as ever.
Alex, our server, was amazing!
We had a wonder time.
Great food, great service. Whilst the prices are high, you pay for good quality meals, with tender meat and amazing flavours. Cannot fault the quality of the food or the tentative staff.
The restaurant had a lovely ambience but we felt it was overpriced for the food. Particularly the steak that didn’t come with a salad or anything- although it was tasty.
This place is a little gem - food was awesome with friendly attentive service.
The Korean BBQ steak sauce was delish...!
Will definitely be coming back
Always excellent - never disappoints. Will be back soon :)
Great service from the moment we walked through the door. Food was on point - however, the side dishes could do with a bit of a size increase.
Our 2nd visit and we will definitely be returning .
Delicious pretty food!
Friendly staff and cosy atmosphere.
Look forward to our next visit
Accommodated a late addition to the table hence the service score, food was pretty good but service was v slow c2 hours for two courses
The food and drinks were very delightful and our waiter was very attentive, helpful and just super nice to talk to! Wish I would remember his name.
A memorable meal. The centrepiece was our amazing steaks with delicious sauces and accompaniments, but everything around that worked so very well. The service was helpful and friendly and beautifully timed. Our wine was delicious. This is a place for a real treat in Brighton - can’t wait for the next time!
We had read reviews and decided to give it try. We were not disappointed it was fantastic. The food was excellent and every mouthful was dream. If you are in Brighton for a few days give it a go. If you live in Brighton and not going once a fortnight you are mad. Thanks for a lovely evening.
One of best steaks we have had in a long time! Sides also all delicious. Service and wine choices excellent too. Maybe a little more choice on dessert menu; chocolate chip cookie was mediocre for such a great meal. We will definitely be back next time in Brighton.
Very nice meal. Helpful and friendly staff.
The shared steaks are a bit expensive for what you get, however they are very well cooked and tasted excellent.
Sides amazing, however quite small for the £££.
A real treat, just a little expensive which makes frequent visits less likely.
Lovely lunch there for really good value. Service was excellent
Ideal location for the Brighton Centre. Great food.
We have been wanting to try the Coal Shed for a long time as we'd heard it was one of the best restaurants in town and decided to go to celebrate our anniversary. We were not disappointed in any way; the food was so unbelievable we didn't want the meal to end! The service was also amazing. We will be back!
Loved it! Went for Sunday roast and the steak was amazing 🤤🥩
Outstanding service, perfect meal, will definitely be returning. Thank you for making a special day so memorable
