It finally happened - a restaurant in a tourist hotspot that you would actually fight through the crowds to get to. The Coal Shed is the first London location of a popular Brighton restaurant that specializes in cooking fish and meats cooked over fire, and it’s located in the One Tower Bridge complex right next to the Bridge. Unfortunately, it’s hidden away inside the complex, so there aren’t great views, but the fun environment and excellent food make up for it. There are a bunch of interesting starters, tons of different steak and fish options, as well as a big goat dish for the table to share. And if you’ve ever thought, ‘I wish I could just eat sides for dinner’, this would be a great place to do it - the potato mash with burnt ends and bone marrow is a must order. This restaurant is great for everyone (except vegetarians, probably) and for all occasions, but we suggest putting it in the back pocket for date night - that after dinner stroll will be dead romantic.
