Borough Market is the original Wright Brothers restaurant. It’s intimate, informal and never, ever dull. Seating is mostly arranged around a long oyster bar and two shared high-tables which offer views across the open kitchen.

Head chef Rob Malyon’s speciality is great ingredients cooked simply and includes classics such as oysters, fruits de mer, moules marinière, as well as a daily-changing specials board featuring the best seafood and seasonal produce. It doesn't get fresher than this.

If you are unable to make an online reservation – please call the restaurant directly.

Yes - but this is the first time I have eaten on a Monday - a day I will avoid in future. The food looked and tasted like it was prepared for the previous Saturday diners. Very dry and tasteless.

Wright Brothers is a really good quality fish restaurant with an extensive oyster selection on the menu. The place is cosy and the service is very friendly.

Very cute place perfect for a date.
Amazing customer service specially from Desiree.
She was able to suggest the best kind of food and the best cocktails.
She was smiling,welcoming,friendly and paid attention to us even though we were the last table to come in and to be served.

Will definitely go again.
We were delighted with our night out .

The food was extremely good, although my partner's portion of potted shrimps was not exactly generous. The hake was very well cooked and well presented. The ambience is noisy as it's a very busy place, and it's not designed for relaxed eating! Given the basic amenities, I think it is a little overpriced despite the excellence of the food.

Food as expected but disappointed with the level of service at this price point. They forgot to bring the drinks menu twice and when I finally ordered it took 15 mins to bring me a half Guiness. There were also no cold bottled beers that night as the fridge had broken. I felt they could have offered to take the service charge off the bill or a half pint of guiness on the house or apologise. But nothing. To be fair to the actual waiting staff it looked like there weren’t enough to cope with the capacity.

Lovely friendly staff who endured my Dad's 'dad jokes' with good grace and great humour! They were also very accommodating, making sure that we had a table that had chairs rather than stools so my parents were comfortably seated. The seafood platter was sensational, nothing gritty, everything fresh and beautifully presented. The gin cocktails were delicious and the beer selection was varied. Our waitress also kindly recommended a white wine that would work with all of the main dishes we had ordered. Cheese board was excellent and from the local Neal's Yard dairy round the corner. Was lovely to see the borough market eateries working together to present a wonderfully British menu.

A lovely evening out to celebrate Mother's Day. We were well looked after and left full and with big smiles :)

The service was the thing that would make me go back and recommend to others. We were three women who meet rarely and it was the perfect venue. Our fish was fresh and extremely tasty and the portions were not overwhelming - just right. Our waiter was charming and helpful and patient when we dithered!

We went for Sunday lunch. It was quiet at 12.30 but buzzing by 1.30. Excellent oysters and baked crab with sourdough and salad. Wine great. Good atmosphere - watched the chefs which was fun. Coffee a bit disappointing. Price as expected - on the expensive side

Some of the food was a little disappointing for the price. The baked crab starter really didn't taste like it had any crab in it and the fish pie was nothing special, I can make a better one at home. We had 2 different desserts (lemon and thyme posset which barely tasted of lemon and definitely no thyme, and vanilla panacotta) which basically looked and tasted the same! Service and atmosphere was great though so we had a nice evening

Just an amazing meal! We had oysters ( we did the selection plate with Ireland, England and Channel Islands) and they were great- ( we all loved those from Ireland best)). Fir mains we had the sea bass ( special) , sea bream and mackerel. All were outstanding and memorable. We finished with a cheese plate and chocolate salted caramel mousse- both extraordinary. The Malbec was really nice as well. I can not recommend this restaurant enough- our service was charming and efficient and it was all a great value. We will be back!
