“Lovely”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

Great atmosphere and people watching. Good service but perhaps the waiters over poured the wine a little (and i don't help) so it became a little intrusive. We shared the cote du beuof which was absolutely amazing

“Tremendous food”
Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

We went for the first time for lunch on a recommendation and we're very pleased. The waiter was very helpful and flexible. The food very good, with the desserts inventive and excellent. The tables are a bit small and upstairs, where we sat, loud when full. We will certainly be going back.

“Good but pricey”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

The service, food and ambience were excellent. The menu was inventive - a bit "cheffy" perhaps. I suppose all in all it was worth the £50 a head.

“The Coal Shed”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Stumbled across this place by accident when in Brighton for a short break and what a find!!
Fabulous steak and with the added bonus of chips cooked in beef dripping, divine.
More on offer then just steak, check out the daily specials board.
Simple food done superbly and the service was friendly and attentive.
So good we went twice.

“Cosy dining”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

Had a meal here with friends last weekend. Having spent the day drinking around Brighton we eventually made it here and was not disappointed. This place is very cosy and split over two floors with only 5 tables upstairs. The waiting staff are very friendly and the service excellent. I recommend the pigs cheeks and the fillet steak which melted as my knife approached it. The bill was on the pricey side but you do get some very good food. Plus I am sure you are paying a surcharge for the Brighton location. If you want to take friends or a loved one for something a little special then this is the place.
