The Coal Shed London
Open seven days a week, 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. 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.
Went for Valentine’s Day and had a fantastic time. Food was exceptional
Really attentive but not intrusive staff. Delicious food. Be prepared for a bit of a dent in your wallet though! Sharing steak was lovely.
The service in here on Sunday was absolutely shocking. We asked 4 times for horseradish (baring in mind this was for a roast dinner - I’m sure they have been asked plenty times before), the waitress was instead busy laughing with her colleague and we were totally ignored. Really disappointing after our experience in Brighton Coal - which was fantastic in every way.
Love the Sharing roasts - very tasty, well cooked, generous portions and hearty and warming! If you love beef (the only criticism would be that they only offer beef) then this is the perfect sharing roast. It's a relaxed, but upmarket vibe as well so not your typical pub but still very hearty! Also lovely dessert selection - we'd wholeheartedly recommend the cookie dessert, and they gave my boyfriend a lovely dessert plate (I took him here for his birthday!)
The basics were great - fantastic steak and good wine.
We felt the starters and sides let down the quality of the other ingredients. The broccoli and hispi cabbage sides were not of the same quality as the steak.
To me this restaurant was sold on quality and cooking of the steak and seafood plus chips. I have to say that the steak was a disappointment, no grid lines, smell or flavour of having been cooked over the “coals”. The turbot was slightly under and thus not great and the chips dry lacking any beef dripping taste.
Service good but overall a disappointment!
Amazing food & the service was exceptional. Would highly recommend. Onion rings are to die for!!!! Love it
Beautiful food with a lovely chilled vibe and attention to detail service. Recommend this restaurant to anyone.
Every thing about the day was special
If I could eat here every day I would
The steaks were amazing. Starters and sides are on the small size but that means we could order more.
So boring when a steak restaurant can't cook a steak. Medium rare fillet came well done. Sent it back and took 20 mins for new one. Restaurant too expensive for errors like this. Go to the hawksmoor instead for similar money. Service slow and forgettable.
Not great at all. Very disappointing!!!
The staff need more training as they could have paid a little more attention to the experience.
We visited for a pre theatre dinner. The food was amazing, the staff were professional and the ambience was really relaxing. This is the second time I have been and I will definitely be back again.
Ambience- too loud. Only the two of us but we had to shout to be heard.
Absolute 5 star experience.
Would definitely recommend and the steak was totally amazing.
Staff go above and beyond.
Great pre theatre meal and service before going to The Bridge Theatre. Excellent value for London and good food delivered in a timely fashion without rushing us.
Fantastic Sunday roast! Loved the beef and all the trimings
Great evening with great food and wine. The service was spot on and the staff were warm and attentive. I will definitely recommend it and will visit here again.
Average pub-style food.
The only fault was ,there’s not enough break between meals being served, soon as we’ve finished the starter,the main course was on the table .
Apart from that ,very good.
The whole experience was pretty average. The orders for the starters weren’t correct, they forgot a main and gave us butter knives to cut the rib eye steak. Food was OK but we won’t be rushing back
pleasant surroundings, freshly cooked excellent food
Friday night date with husband after busy week at work. I would go back with friends but I wouldn’t say this is a ‘special occasions’ place
The food was disappointing as the fish was very over cooked and the potatoes were luke warm. We did mention this to the staff.
Great restaurant amazing food and fantastic service - first time there it came highly recommended - I will definitely return
Very enjoyable supper - great location and a lovely buzz. We had an early table but it seemed that later diners were left waiting - I’d book again for an early table.
Beautiful location nice staff and lovely feel about the place
My steak was delicious and not to long to wait for each course.
Lovely evening x
Excellent express lunch bowl with smoked aubergine. Really good value, healthy and very filling.
Excellent food and service absolutely enjoyed our meal. Value for money exceeded all my expectations
Unreal sharing roast! Flavours were amazing, meat was perfection, we loved it!
We had an excellent pre theatre supper with friendly and efficient service which made a great start to the evening
An amazing meal with friends. Superb food, and wonderful service. Would recommend it to anyone.
Since two of us were coming here after work and then had theatre tix nearby, we needed somewhere to eat that was quick and near the theatre. Luckily, we took advantage of the pre-theatre two course menu and were done in about 45 minutes. The menu is really a lovely value. The fish and gammon steak were cooked nicely. My only complaint is that my starter of roasted cauliflower was just a bit too big of portion. I would dine here again when in the area.
Very good service throughout our visit. The portions are very generous and perhaps we didn’t need the extra sides of chips and hispi cabbage, but both were very good. We shared some bread and short rib croquettes to start and followed with cod and pork cutlet mains, both cooked on the wood fire. Every thing was very good. Too full to try dessert! Very long wine list with prices a bit on the high side with little choice much below £40 a bottle, but that seems to be the norm in London restaurants now. The Italian white we had was perfect. Great location near The Bridge theatre and I noticed that they have a very reasonable 3 course pre theatre menu at £24, about the price of some mains on the a la carte menu. Recommended.
We were recommended the restaurant by some friends and we were not disappointed. Attentive staff throughout and the most amazing food.
Extremely disappointed . Booked back in may to surprise my boys for New Year’s Eve and there was no fillet steak left which was what we all wanted and then we had to wait well over an hour for our food after I had to tell a waiter, god only knows when we would have eaten if I hadn’t. Our food arrived around10.40pm to which we had waited far to long and had lost our appetite. This was supposed to be an amazing experience for my family as I booked it as it was on Masterchef which we all love. All in all, not a good experience.
Visited 3 times - never any oysters. May as well take off the menu. Had the sea bass - wasn’t fresh & it smelled. Couldn’t eat all of it. Won’t be going back again
The food was not worth the money at all - needed way more seasoning and flavour. The pork was dry and over cooked. Lovely ambience, great drinks, and a great location, however.
The ordered peppercorn sauce arrived half way through the meal. We had to remind the waiter that it was missing and he came back from the kitchen and told us that the sauce had run out but we would not be charged for it. We complained and then he bought 3 cold sauces and said we would not be charged for them. We complained and then the peppercorn sauce arrived. The rating is low because our meal was ruined by very poor service.
