I took my boyfriend here for his birthday as he loves steak and we were in Brighton for the weekend. We have an incredible steak restaurant 5 minutes from us at home, which he loves, so I was hoping that The Coal Shed would be able to exceed that.
We were greeted with a warm welcome, even though we turned up 15 minutes early, and we were sat quickly at a table for 2. There was already water at the table which was poured for us. The waitress was brilliant. She explained the menu to us perfectly and answered all of our questions for us.
We ended up opting for the 600g prime rib, medium rare. We also ordered the beef dripping chips, potato gratin and peas and chorizo. The food was quick to come down to us and was beautifully cooked. My boyfriend said it was the best steak he'd ever eaten.
I'd mentioned when booking that it was his birthday and had asked them to do a little something with his dessert. We'd filled ourselves up with steak so we didn't want a dessert, but they brought us a small plate with "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" and 2 small chocolate tortes on. It was a beautiful touch.
The only thing I would say is that if you want a sharing steak, get there early (we got there for 7) as they only have a certain number of the steaks in the various weights so get in there early!
Definitely worth the money. We will be visiting again in the near future.
