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.
Possibly the best meals I’ve ever had at a restaurant. Tasty, full of flavour meals and perfectly cooked steaks. The atmosphere was lovely and relaxed and staff were brilliant!
Absolutely visit The Coal Shed, food is amazing! Lovely waitress too.
Amazing service, atmosphere and food! Sunday roast was incredible.
Amazing food great atmosphere would definitely recommend
First time visiting Brighton this was a lovely little place food and service was amazing.
Lovely Saturday afternoon lunch. Steaks are always great and the service is always
The Coal Shed has always been one of my favourite restaurants in Brighton and, for that matter, anywhere in England. Service is first class and the food and wine simply superb. This was the first time I've been able to dine there since lockdown was lifted and it was a joy to return. Nick and his team were superb hosts and we loved every minute of our lunch. Fabulous!
Great steak! Lovely food and service! Very friendly and attentive.
Incredible menu and quality of food! Really enjoyed all courses and the kids menu was good too!
Excellent service, brilliant steaks. I had the rib-eye. The smoked pork belly starter was gorgeous too. Lovely staff.
So, as a Brighton resident of 20 years , Ive eaten in most of the decent places and as I was entertaining a friend, I chose Coal Shed.
So, the good news is the steaks were nice. The wine was nice.
However, there was a plague of flies which one of the waiters was swatting regularly.
The waiter kept removing our one menu after we'd ordered something so had to keep asking it back.
I think my guest didn't notice to much but as the person paying the £175 bill it was a bit irksome as both of the staff kept asking him (not me) if he'd enjoyed the meal and totally ignored me on the way out.
I'm not at all narcissistic, and always measure experiences on balance but if your paying the tab, you expect to be treated accordingly otherwise why bother. I don't need my photo taken with the maitre d' table but it would also be me booking and paying the next time.
I won't be.
Enjoyable meal with excellent service and delicious food.
The perfect place to celebrate our Anniversary 😊
Excellent. Good service. Good Covid precautions. Superb Rib Eye. Overall good value .
The food and wine was lovely. The atmosphere was also lovely.
Food was amazing, service was very quick and nice. Didnt feel rushed but also didn't feel like we needed to get anyones attention for anything. Was very clean everywhere. I would recommend this place to anyone that likes good meat n a chill experience.
Amazing dining experience, food was exceptional. However if you are going for the steak be aware this is double the price than the rest of the mains.
Definitely worth it for a special occasion however we were not expecting to pay £100 for two mains and a drink.
Like steak come here was cooked to perfection.
My boyfriend and I both agree this is the best steak we’ve ever had! We were served by Jo and she was lovely and joking around with us which made us feel comfortable and welcome. :)
Overall lovely experience. Food was delicious and staff where welcoming and friendly. Will definitely return.
The food was delicious service was a little slow and for the size of the venue not as attentive as I would have expected.
Celebrating our anniversary so we made the most of it together
Some of the staff were great, the food pretty tasty, although our main waiter was a miserable git. Would it hurt to force a polite welcome, especially as you've probably been closed for three months? Kind of put us off to be honest. Fortunately the rest of the staff made up for it. Didn't seem to attempt any social distancing that we could see either... hey ho.
Probably the best Sunday lunch available, as close to home cooked as we have had out!
Premises were a little dark and cramped (upstairs). The shared sirloin roast was nice although the meat was a little fatty and gristly. Very nice roasties, the cheesy leek bake: a little watery, roast carrots: very nice. Not enough gravy, not enough horseradish sauce. The amount was perfect for us but I suspect that those with larger appetites may struggle
Jo our waitress was brilliant 👏 the whole team were friendly and we felt relaxed
Beautiful meal as always! So much flavour!
Booked the coal shed as I got a voucher for my birthday but due to covid was unable to use it however they extended it for me .a very nice quiet restaurant the service was excellent, it initially looks expensive but the quality of the food more than makes up for that cannot fault in any way
Food was great. Tacos were awesome. Fricasse as a side to our meat was an unexpected DELICIOUS side to have. I wasn’t a big fan of the chocolate fondant, it had an overpowering taste of eucalyptus. But that’s a personal taste I guess :) everything else was great!
Amazing steak and fantastic service. The buzzing atmosphere made eating out feel ‘normal’ again.
The food was great, service was great. I ate too much! A lovely evening was had.
Food was excellent, however not a fan of a service charge being added automatically-prefer to decide on the service ourselves!
Amazing service made to feel very welcome and staff friendly as recommended the wine was a lovely evening well done
Food was amazing
Service very knowledgeable helpful and happy!
Put upstairs. No atmosphere. Uncomfortable speaking to my partner as other tables could hear every word. Starter was ok. Steak was overcooked, burnt and full of fat. During meal had phone call from restaurant asking why I didn't turn up for my booking. I wish I hadn't.
Steaks cooked to perfection. Great service and atmosphere

As always, superb! We had a delicious meal and had wonderful service from the staff. We will be back again.
We love the coal shed I always have the fish which is delicious and my partner has a T bone steak. All the sides are so good and the oysters and so good!
