Sunday Lunch
The Coal Shed Restaurant London is located at One Tower Bridge on the banks of the River Thames. The Coal Shed was born from the love of cooking the finest meat and seafood over fire.

The restaurant uses the highest quality ingredients, sourced as locally as possible. Try the 35-day aged sharing steaks or the South Coast sharing fish for a dining experience to remember.

The Coal Shed London, occupies two floors and a bar for pre and post dinner drinks and cocktails expertly crafted (it's not possible to stay at the bar at the moment due to the pandemic but if we have an available table, we will be delighted to seat you until we need it back). If you want to host your own event, there is a private dining room on the mezzanine or the restaurant can be exclusively hired for any type of occasion (following all Government Guidelines for numbers and social distancing).

Another lovely meal at the Coalshed. The staff are so friendly and really care that you have a wonderful experience. We are regulars and love every visit. There is lots of choice near Tower Bridge but this is our clear favourite.

The staff were first class, nothing too much trouble and very helpful and polite. My meal was very good only let down slightly as I had asked for medium, well done but it came well done a bit chewy. This was our second visit and I would not hesitate to return.

Love this place!

I first visited with my fiance in Spring 2019 and loved it.

We were both due to go to Italy this year for her 30th but due to the covid restrictions we had to stay local and decided to visit The Coal Shed again.

I left a message to let them know about our situation and they made our night great. Food was amazing, as expected, but the service and the staff were exceptional once again and really made the night special.

Thanks again the team at Coal Shed!

This is my third time coming now, and I have to be honest - the quality of the food and the service has considerably gone down. The roast potatoes weren't roasted at all and I had to actually ask the waiter because they looked boiled, he gave me such a blasé response!! Food was lukewarm too..., definitely the last time I went there for sure. I'll stick to Hawksmoor moving forwards.

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry if the service and food wasn't up to your standards and will make sure this is rectified once we are able to open our doors again after this 2nd lockdown. I would have prefer you ask to speak to a manager so this could have been rectified right away instead of leaving a bitter memory, especially if this was your 3rd visit as you mentioned.. Feel free to contact us on manager.tb@coalshed-restaurant.co.uk Stay safe and well, along with your loved ones.

Once again a very pleasant and relaxing experience. Apart from the excellent menu and 'specials' of excellent meat, what makes me return is the friendliness and efficiency of the staff.

Without exception they all seem both interested and knowledgeable the food and drink that they serve - always ready to give advice. As an example our wine server showed his knowledge of the wines origin and the growing conditions that went to produce this fine wine ( a Pinot Noir ). This I'm sure points to good training and an effort to create a pleasant working environment in spite of the difficult times they are experiencing.

Really loved our visit. Good food, drinks. The carrots were insanely good and the dessert was beaaautifuk!

Only criticism being that when we arrived and for the duration of our visit, we were placed very close to another couple. It wasn't very private and a little too close for covid comfort.
