We had a celebratory lunch for my son's birthday. Cue lots of champagne, oysters and fabulous food. Our waitress was exceptional. She welcomed our dog and baby too. We will be back!

We have enjoyed this restaurant three times now, each time the staff and food have lived up to the standards offered on our first visit when freshly opened, so thank you.
The food and service cannot be faulted in any way and I would be hard pressed to suggest any improvements that could be made.
Thank you to the team.

Good choices of fish from main and specials menu. 3 of us were impressed with our hake, plaice and mussels mains. Nice broccoli side, minted new potatoes turned up as sautéed but that was even better. Good red IPA, Sauvignon by the glass also good. Great location and decor. Staff were exceptionally nice. Would go again. Thank you all.

Visited on a Sunday evening, so the restaurant was not very busy; nevertheless the atmosphere was good and I liked the decor and the general layout of the place. The location: close to the Thames and within the new Battersea Power Station development area is also a plus.
The service was prompt, friendly and efficient. My wife and I both had a smoked salmon starter with butterd soda bread, which was delicious . This was followed by hake, with a curry and mussel sauce, accompanied by minted new potatoes and roasted butternut squash; beautifully presented and also absolutely delicious.
For sweet I opted for the lemon posset with pistachio crumble, which lived up to the high standard set by the starter and main.
The wine was reasonably priced, with a selection of wines served by the glass or in a 500cc carafe (a nice option I thought).
All in all, I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant.

Waiter was very short on us and oversold the fish. Didnt live up to the standard this time around. Been many times before where its normally 5 stars all around. When mentioning it wasn't usual quality felt like waiter was arguing back. for a 300 pound dinner didn't find this visit amazing.

I've eaten at different Wright Bros a few times, and up until now has been OK. But as ever with chains the quality gradually drops as they grow. My starter fish soup was fine, but the other starters weren't executed well. Mussels main course were good ingredients marred by lack of care in preparation. The liquor was poor and non existent which meant they were just dry. Only 2 of the puddings were available out of 3. The waiters were of the apologetic variety and a free glass of port did arrive but overall service was very slow and patchy. The last drinks never turned up.

Mother'a day was a brilliant experience for all the family, kids aged 6 to 15 loved it.
Food good and varied and the raw fish was an excellent quality as were the oyster and the special, Trout.
A lovely experience made even better by excellent waiters.
Thank you

A very special evening spent celebrating my husband birthday. We initially sat at the bar and ordered oysters and tempura broccoli, both delicious. The English sparking wine was a perfect accompaniment.
Two out of the 3 meals were ordered off the specials board. The hake was so fresh and the lemon risotto delicious. My daughter had the scallops, which were excellent but as a main course a minuscule portion. Husband had the Skate which, again was fabulous.
Would love to see a better selection of desserts.
Overall a great evening, would recommend.

Top prices, but inadequate service on a busy Saturday night. I guess they had a party booked into one of their rooms, because we had one poor girl serving the main room facing the river.
We sat down at about 7:45 and didnt get the puddings until 9:45.
The waitress was running round like crazy so I wouldn't blame her. The restaurant management are responsible for coping with busy nights and at these prices, they should not fally back on the old excuse that "one of the staff was ill".
We had the seafood platter, most of which was OK, but it was hardly exciting, and the whelks were dry as a bone.
The final blow was that service was included at 12.5% but the credit card machine was set up so that you had to decline to give a tip. I ask you . . . . .

Very kind and friendly staff, but unfortunately quite poorly trained in table service. Lots of partially spilt coffee, my sister food arrived cold (they changed it graciously), and too much checking in. Barman had a good manner.
Unfortunately I found all the food to be quite underwhelming for the price. Tasteless and bland. I liked the room and the fit out of the restaurant so a shame that the food didn’t live up to it. Can’t say i’d return.

On the night we went to Wright Bros. Battersea they had a special menu with wine pairing. We were shown to a high table after I had booked a normal table. We were changed to a normal table and the rest of the evening went extremely smoothly. Great food and good wines to accompany each course.

We were very glad to find as restaurant that serves a real sea food platter . It is, a have to admit, a bit pricey. However worth it. The place is classy without pretention. Staff very friendly and very helpful.
The view on the river Thames... a real bonus .

On a wet Sunday afternoon stepping into Wrights in Battersea was warm & welcoming. Taking advantage of the oyster happy hours we had 16 with a lovely dry rose as recommended by our helpful waitress. We then tried a few of their small dishes which were small but tasty. By this time we were ready for something sweet & had the lemon posset & tea. All the staff were polite, efficient & professional. making our vist one that we will definitely repeat!

A few tables booked and a large private party gave the location a bit of atmosphere. Some good waiters, also seemed like a few were being trained as a bit slow at times. Good food slightly over priced for portion size but relaxing atmosphere and pleasant experience.

The food was excellent at Wright Brothers. Every bit was great. However the service was very slow and the restaurant wasn't full. It was busy but not full. We had drinks before & during our starter then ordered wine for the main course. We didn't get this until after we'd finished our main course. We had a train to catch but had allowed plenty of time for our meal and to get to the station. We were then told that we may not get dessert within the time we had left so we didn't order it. Such a shame because the slow service did dampen the meal. However, we would go again.

I went for lunch on Sunday and to be honest it was a bit disappointing, two of the dishes we ordered were no longer available but instead of being told before looking at the menu, we were told when we ordered so then had to rethink what we wanted. Then there was a mess up with the main course (I didn’t get mine) and had to wait. We then had to ask for a discount for the inconvenience. Food was nice, staff friendly, just a bit disappointed.

This branch of Wright Bros is really lovely, with great river views. The staff are very friendly. The menu is not huge but there were several interesting specials. Tables were a good size and not crowded in.

The highlight was the fresh oysters, which are delicious and served beautifully. The cooked fish dishes were tasty and arrived in good time.

Awful food and some rude staff. The Monkfish tail was as big as a prawn and we got basically carrot scrapings when we ordered the winter vegetable dish. It was a waste of money and such a disappointment. The oysters were nice - that’s all. Such a shame.

My son and I simply like to enjoy great seafood and 'chewing the fat' in the
