Whilst you probably never expected in your lifetime that you’d be eating in a coal shed, this one is about to change the game entirely! Ladies, gents, The Coal Shed is the rustic babe of a restaurant you need on your doorstep, something we knew as soon as we saw the reluctant to compliment Financial Times magazine describing the Brighton outpost as “having done well for itself.”
In fact, the turn of the century saw very little in the way of eateries around the London Bridge area but, ever since, a culinary growth has seen the food culture positively booming with ravishing restaurants snaking around the centrepiece Shard which dominates the sultry city skyline. Included in these elegant eateries is in fact The Coal Shed, a restaurant that lives up to its namesake by rustling up traditional methods of cooking on natural fire and charcoal. Worth every calorie, this smoking hot eatery knows a thing or two about how to cook meat and fish and deliver it in a #foodporn kinda way.
Today, with rumbling tummies, we’re here to shout about their new brunch offering. A lip-smacking 90-minute feast that is made all the more merry with the prospect of free-flowing drinks. However, we urge you to hold your horses until the 20th of July when it becomes available for all those amongst us who rid hangovers with hair of the dog and eggs Benedict.
The unparalleled Surf ‘n Turf champions are offering just that, with overflowing plates served to share, with accompanying sauces. Brunch will include hot off the mark dishes such as the hefty 500g Himalayan salt aged bone in sirloin, scallop and pork belly skewers, or N’duja mussels. Or, opt for the cheaper menu – in order to squeeze in more tipples – and feast on the Coal Shed brunch burger, buttered English crumpets or smashed avo on toast.
If you’re sat reading this fretting about the lack of libations then fear not, dear friend. Included in the 90-minutes are some real whipper snappers, sure to freshen you up for the weekend action. We’re talking Breakfast Martinis with vodka, homemade hazelnut liqueur, demerara and coffee, Botanical Bellini’s, Bloody Mary’s and, for those who are “being good,” why not opt for a zingy pink house lemonade?
P.s. You can work it all off by wandering across nearby London Bridge… and heading straight to the pub!
