We loved every bit (and bite) of Bright and can’t wait to return! We tried as much of the lunch menu as we could and each dish exceeded expectations. Very friendly/welcoming staff made our visit particularly special.

As a part of the P Franco empire, you'd be correct to expect an outstanding and interesting wine list. We followed our waiter's recommendation and it was spot on, considering the complexities of the ask from our table. The food is modern and unorthodox, without being annoying. Prawns were killer. Oysters also outstanding. We will be back.

I think the food was over priced for the servicing. It was not always explain how and what the food was. Portion size etc. Not a great experience. Sorry.

Unfortunately the flavours of all dishes we had were lacking. A squid dish lacked salt and enough acid. Clams with tomato had not much taste at all, seafood texture was poor. The dish is not described appropriately on the menu, it was a watery ceviche maybe. Pasta with artichokes and pancetta was bland. Best dish was veg and dip.

Bright is delicious. The wines are great and the food is so good and remarkably well priced (for what it is). On this occasion the best part of the meal was the grilled turbot head special. A real treat!

Wonderful light and airy restaurant, with great produce focused modern British/European food, and interesting wine list with focus on natural wines. In a category with Shoreditch's Leroy and Peckham's Levan. Perfect Friday night date spot! Best surprise was the Macerated Strawberries and Rhubarb dessert.

Lovely food and a great atmosphere. As a solo diner I was treated very well - someone to talk to when I wanted to but given space when reading my book. Accommodating of me being veggie although the menu is more meat/fish heavy. Fab wine list and knowledgeable friendly staff - cheers guys!

Phenomenal, seasonal food - the crab, leek cold soup was the highlight for me, so much succulent crab, soup so light and full of flavour. The main we had lamb neck, with olives and herb, yoghurt sauce also a favourite- drenched in a gorgeous broth like sauce. The fresh vegetables were crisp and dipped in the Parmesan and herb sauce an absolute delight, great accompaniment with the lamb even though it’s on the starters. Great for for wine fanatics as although the by the glass is short, full of beautiful varied wines some natural/ organic leaning and always rotating with wine specials on the night. We loved the selection of digestifs. We received attentive service at the bar but I would prefer the high top tables or restaurant seats if you can book in advance. My only one recommendation is to have some gluten free bread alternatives for the starters. Can’t wait to go back!

Effortless attentive service and super food and drinks - wonderfully fresh and bright experience. We sat at the bar and it felt both private and at the heart of the restaurant with food and drinks being ferried to us and we lost ourselves in our conversations. Great experience to celebrate 18 years of marriage.

I dined here with two girlfriends for a bday. The food quality was mixed, the starters were stronger than mains. Of note, the cheddar pastries, cuttlefish pasta, and asparagus side were delicious but the pork main was really fatty and rare and the chicken offal ragu pasta was overcooked. Berry dessert was like a mushy hospital jelly but the milk cream and caramel was excellent. Service was lovely.

Expensive for what it is. Was recommended by a friend but the food didn’t meet the hype. There were so many bones in the turbot loin which costed £30.
