Now in its tenth decade, Bentley’s first opened its doors in 1916 in the same beautiful old Victorian building it occupies today and has now become an iconic London restaurant. From the outset this famous oyster bar and grill, with its arts and crafts movement-inspired interior and Italian-gothic… façade, captured the vibrant mood of a metropolis about to embrace the roaring twenties.
Offered the chance to restore Bentley’s to its former glory when it came up for sale in 2005, Chef Richard Corrigan embraced the challenge. In November of that year, following a sensitive refurbishment that kept much of the original arts and craft flavour, Bentley’s once again opened its doors to great critical acclaim serving oysters, fish and seafood in much the same way it has since 1916.
Bentley's Oyster Bar and Grill also has two beautiful private dining rooms. The Crustacea seats up to 14 and the Jameson Room, with it's own private bar and street entrance, seats up to 60.Continued
