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.

Super meal as usual here. Roll mops almost a meal in itself, whitebait not quite as hot as usual but they were so busy. Hake, Plaice and fish pie all delicious. Noisy but fun environment

In my opinion this is the best oyster/fish restaurant in London. Service is always extremely friendly, oysters are just fabulous and the fish is wonderfully fresh. And not least the wine list is ample. My only reason for rating 4 stars on value is that I feel that the prices have gone up from the past.

I love restaurants which are busy, busy, busy - there’s nothing worse than an empty,smile that place. Wright Brothers is always buzzing. Wonderful food, very friendly staff and a very warm atmosphere.

Very nice place for a platter of seafood & oysters. We did lunch, sitting at a window table (2 persons).
We will come back again next in London.

We've been several times before but I would hesitate to book again.
There was a choice of places to sit but none were fantastic. We ended up at the back, perched on stools watching the chefs but we were literally hoofed in and my husband had to be very politely asked to squish himself along so that the staff could get in and out of the service area.
It was really hot near the kitchen which we weren't warned about (and it was a really hot evening) - we could have asked to move somewhere else, but it had taken so long to squeeze in to the space in the first place I honesty couldn't be bothered.
The menu was somewhat disappointing for choice, I had fish pie last time I came and for dinner, I wanted something more substantial than shell-on prawns or mussels - I can only assume that most of the specials had already sold out.
We love fish and shellfish but we were nonplussed and ended up with the beef pie - which was fabulous I have to say, almost as good as what I make at home but we would have preferred fish.
My starter wasn't fine but nothing special, standard mackerel pate offered with small pieces of dry, toasted sour-dough. Fresh out of the fridge, the butter-seal was cold and solid unfortunately. The scallops being prepared in front of us looked amazing - I wish I had chosen that instead.
Staff were lovely and we couldn't have been made more welcome. The wine was really good. We were too full for to have a dessert.
It was lovely to be back but I think we will make it lunch next time instead of dinner and would recommend same approach to friends.

A great experience at a cozy fish house. We went to Borough location and found a large crowd outside. Our reservation was mandatory as this small venue fills up quickly and for good reason. We elected to sit bar style over looking the kitchen. It was a treat to watch the fresh fish being prepared. The menu changes for specials daily depending upon the catch. If you like simple, fresh seafood this is a fantastic choice. A very snug restaurant with a warm ambiance. You will enjoy.

This was a last minute choice for our final night in London so couldn’t get a reservation until 9pm. But we were so glad we waited! Great food, lively atmosphere, friendly waiter, and fun location in the Borough Market. We were seated at the counter which allowed us to watch the action in the kitchen. All around a wonderful experience for our last meal before leaving early the next day!
