Coal Rooms

An all-day restaurant in a restored former Grade II listed train ticket office

Coal Rooms occupies the beautifully restored former Grade II listed ticket office, originally part of Peckham Rye’s train station in the 1930s. The site features a 24-seater café which transforms into a bar in the evenings; 13 counter seats around a large, sunken, open-plan kitchen; a main restaurant space for 30 covers and a private dining room (a vaulted space with a Victorian mosaic floor) for up to 14 guests.

Head Chef Sam Bryant has worked in the kitchens of Smokehouse, Princess of Shoreditch and Norfolk’s Dabbling Duck. Bryant’s menu extensively uses a robata grill and coal ovens and there’s a focus on working creatively to reduce waste in the kitchen and making use of the restaurant’s on-site butchery focusing on a variety of meats and unusual cuts.
