The Coal Shed

It’s at the heart of what we do: source great seasonal local produce and cook it over flame

The Coal Shed is a steak restaurant in the heart of Brighton. The Coal Shed celebrates coal roasted rare breed heritage meat and South Coast seafood, inspired by Founder Raz Helalat’s Persian roots.

The menu is simple: the highest quality ingredients, sourced as locally as possible, and expertly cooked over coal. As well as a seasonal à la carte menu, we also offer daily sharing specials, a great value express lunch menu, and Brighton’s favourite Sunday Sharing Roast.

Occupying two floors, The Coal Shed Brighton is a neighbourhood grill with an intimate private dining room.

We're Moving!

“I’ve always dreamed of moving our beloved original restaurant, The Coal Shed to a bigger location in Brighton and as we edge closer to our thirteenth brilliant year at our home in Boyce’s Street, it feels like the right time to write our next chapter.

This move allows us to bring our unique flame grilled flavours, friendly service and classic drinks to more people, offering our guests the same The Coal Shed warmth plus a brand-new bar area, an open kitchen where you can see the theatre of our Masters of Fire at work and proud displays of the very best cuts of meat dry ageing in our Himalayan Salt room.

We are really excited about this new era for The Coal Shed. The team and I can’t wait to welcome you soon!
Born in Boyce’s Street…Moving to North Street”
