The Coal Shed

Specialising in glorious grilled meats, The Coal Shed's Josper Oven cooks up a beautiful banquet of top-quality cuts and chops, and contrasting with the traditional pub approach, serves up their meaty munch and veg with a cool, contemporary lip-smacking twist. Wolf down a 500g 35-day, dry-aged roast sirloin or, alternatively, tuck into their whole roast chicken with stuffing.

As the oldest pub in Brighton, The Cricketers certainly encapsulates that traditional charm and character, making for the most comfy and atmospheric tavern to tuck into the hefty handful of ales and warming grub on a Sunday. Squeeze into a cosy, nook with your cronies and fork into the fresh, locally sourced produce that make up that classic, succulent roast with all the trimmings.
