Restaurant description

A short stroll from Tower Bridge, The Coal Shed London serves succulent grilled dishes using the finest meat and seafood. Watch the chefs at work through the glass-concealed kitchen, which plays host to the famed charcoal grill.

Alongside sharing cuts of steak, The Coal Shed menu also features dishes like confit duck hash, seaweed-cured salmon, fire-roasted lemon sole and smoked goat shoulder, all made using native rare breed meats and ethically caught South Coast fish. On Sundays, a sharing roast of 35-day aged 500g Black Aberdeen Angus is served with all the trimmings, including beef fat potatoes, cauliflower cheese, Yorkshire puddings and smoked gravy.

Contemporary décor, floor-to-ceiling windows and an open kitchen make for an atmospheric setting. A cocktail bar and impressive wine list are also on hand to complement the menu.

Find The Coal Shed a 9-minute walk from London Bridge Station.

    Started with delicious cocktails at the bar . Service is friendly and just attentive enough to not be intrusive. Our food was gorgeous. Crab starter for me, smoked salmon for himself. I had sea bream, he had lamb and we were both v happy. Second visit, it won't be our last.

    Lovely place BUT very noisey with too many hard surfaces. Food excellent EXCEPT for the bone marrow which was tasteless. The goat dish for two was delicious. You SHOULD keep non alcoholic beer in stock.

    Very good food at a reasonable price and an ideal location if going to the Bridge Theatre. That said if meeting friends in the area would certainly recommend as a place to go for lunch or dinner

    Duck egg was brilliant. Steak Onglet was very tasty, though a small portion (maybe i'm greedy).

    Service from our waiter was awful. Some dishes were a bit indifferent. Overall okay.

    First time at this restaurant - it was recommended to me by a friend. Great location (scenic with mini fountains and Tower Bridge right outside), great service (waitress was genuine and knew the menu very well) and great atmosphere (dim lighting and nicely decorated). However, lost a star due to the beef in the Sunday roast being a too fatty. The rest of the Sunday roast meal was great! The dessert special that weekend was refreshing and unexpectedly lovely - rice pudding with rhubarb and blood orange. I came with my partner and noticed there were a few families with toddlers and babies - there was no noise and the restaurant was very accommodating so I would say they appear to be child friendly too.

    I had a fantastic experience at The Coal Shed, dining with friends I hadn't seen in a while. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my friends and would come back again soon. The meal itself was excellent, there was a good choice of delicious options on the set menu and it was very good value for money. The service was smooth and attentive and they did not rush us to finish our meal even though we were having a late sitting. The restaurant is a little tucked away, but the atmosphere inside was great.

    Though a little hard to find it was certainly worth it, the Sunday roast was delicious and our main waiter was friendly and attentive.
