A popular steakhouse is set to "kickstart a new chapter" with a new restaurant in the city centre.

The Coal Shed will move its flame-cooked meat and seafood offering to a new venue in North Street, Brighton, next spring.

Some 142 diners will be able to eat inside the main room, inside a historic orangery with glass ceilings and an open-fire kitchen.

Restaurateur Razak Helalat founded The Coal Shed in 2011 with a site in Boyce's Street, Brighton, and hopes the move will "kickstart a new chapter" for the brand with "coal-grilling theatrics" at the heart of the dining experience.

He is also behind Burnt Orange and The Salt Room on the seafront.

There will be a new bar area at the entrance of the restaurant as an introduction to a new menu.

Razak Helalat said: "We’ve always envisioned moving The Coal Shed into a bigger location and now, as we edge closer to our thirteenth year at Boyce’s Street, it feels like the right time.

"The move is all about offering customers the full dining experience that I have always dreamed of, with the new site allowing for a bar area, a more intimate experience with your host, and more seating.

"Needless to say we’ll continue serving our favourite dishes with the same warm hospitality to customers right up until the move in spring, but are really excited about this new era for The Coal Shed.”

It will be inside the former Jack's gift shop, which has been closed since 2022.
