About The Coal Shed, Brighton

SquareMeal Review

Gold Award

“Beef to die for” is the big selling point at this Brighton offshoot of The Coal Shed in London. This place takes its protein seriously, with slabs of locally sourced fillet, rib-eye and rump sizzling on the kitchen's Josper grill and a blackboard listing different breeds, cuts and weights, all served with a choice of sauces (try the mushroom and bone marrow version). Black Angus burgers and spiced rack of lamb with yoghurt, zhug and chickpeas maintain the ‘turf’ theme, but there's also plenty to keep ‘surf’ fans happy – from kombu-cured monkfish to cod with mussels, clams, white beans and monk’s beard. Finish with tongue-scorching mini-doughnuts dunked in molten chocolate. The “busy” vibe and hard-edged, macho interior (stripped floorboards and industrial pendant lamps) feel right for the food, although it can result in a deafening din at peak times. Sensible prices, “amazing cocktails” and a drinker-friendly wine list with plenty by the glass or carafe are additional plus points. “Worth every penny”, chimes one fan.

Six of us went for my daughter's 20th birthday on a Sunday lunchtime. The restaurant is situated in an unsightly part of Brighton not far from the Lanes. The restaurant itself is functional, and was very quiet during our visit. The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive throughout the meal. The menu is slightly confusing, in that you order the more expensive steaks/joints by their weight, and they are priced that way, £6 or so per 100g. We had a selection of starters including the bone marrow, which was delicious, scallops with pancetta and razor clams. The main course dishes were all very good, included half a lobster, calves liver, burgers with a variety of toppings and a rump steak with bone marrow jus. The side dishes at £2 each (including triple cooked chips) were excellent, just the right amount. We enjoyed our visit and will definitely go back, but at £35 per head (including wine and beer) it will have to be a fairly special occasion.
