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.

It’s not our first time there, we have been many times and will continue to do so.
The staff are always great and have time to talk, food is lovely and you can see it cooked in front of you.
Lively bustle and background noise and no horrible music- just people enjoying themselves.

A great restuarant for rustic but well cooked and presented seafood. Loved the atmosphere and the fact you could see the chefs at work. Got a really good tip from our waiter who suggested adding a little green pepper tbasco sauce to the fish pie, which made it even better.

We went for an early dinner. We were shown to two stools adjacent to each other overlooking the cook station!! After some discussion we secured two stools facing in the centre of the restaurant but only on the grounds that we were out by 19.45. This is not an ideal restaurant for couples unless you’ve had a row! Food was fine.

Being from the US, Wright Brothers Borough Market is one of our go to places on our semiannual trips. The oysters are freshest with an excellent selection! The specialty drinks are great. If you like oysters and seafood make sure to go there.

Very cramped, sitting on the end of the counter next to the till meant waitresses were regularly bumping into me and unapologetic, a 7.30 dinner sitting and they were sold out of platters, mussels, whelks, whitebait, spent around £120 exc drinks for 2 and left hungry unfortunately, won't be back.

Brilliant atmosphere, incredible food and brilliant service! We had oysters (two lots because the first was just so good) a dressed crab, pint of prawns and mussels, all washed down with a bottle of Pinot. Not massively cheap but worth it!

We had a nice time. I’ve been to WRIGHT Brothers in Battersea so was expecting the same. Nonetheless although eating area was a little too cosy for me. We loved the food.

Overall a good experience, one myself and two friends were looking forward to for a while. The only disappointment was the size of the Deluxe platter. We have a large appetite when it comes to seafood and were assured it would be enough for three. Unfortunately, it didn't seem to be any bigger than the last Full House platter I had a couple of years ago which was a mild disappointment.

With that said, what we did receive was deliciously fresh and accompanied by a very good Marlborough Sauvignon for £40, which was well worth it.

Arrived 15 mins early, but that didn't cause any problems. Shown straight to seats at kitchen bar, and service straight away was helpful, attentive, efficient and friendly. Wine and drinks lists are extensive. Food was fantastic. Had Oysters to start, then I had Plaice and my partner had Hake. Cooked to perfection. It isn't somewhere you go for a quiet dining experience. It's quite loud in there from the closeness of the kitchen area to the dining area, and the noise of the customers having a good time.
