Seafood
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.

An old favourite. Sitting down the 'business end', where the cooking is being done, meant that I got a bit overheated but other than that as usual a lovely experience.

Been before but this time booked a table
but got no table we had two bar stools near the tills and spent more time having to move to let people and staff pass, very busy we would not have gone if we did not have a table, very busy badly planned only had time for starters, a bar stool would be good if you were popping in on the off chance but reservations should take priority not good experience very disappointing we went weds at 1.30

Hello Keith, thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us and that it was not clear when booking that our seating is predominantly on the counter. It is something that we mention on the confirmation email which is sent on booking as we are aware that bar seating is not for everyone. Please accept my sincere apologies for the frustration caused and I hope that we will have the opportunity to welcome you back at some point in the future. Best Jhonnie

This restaurant never ceases to amaze.
Great service, ambience and the freshest of freshest perfectly cooked fish.
The dressed crab is a must and the various oyster dishes superb.
Mussels always sweet.
Enjoy!

Authentic traditional London seafood restaurant with great atmosphere and buzzing with local London charm. Sea food delicious and fresh and service manic and fun. Nothing stuffy and a great atmosphere amongst eclectic crowd. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to experience a feel for the real London

Weight Bros continues to deliver a tight menu of well sourced mainly fish dishes. There’s old favourites and a rotating edit of specials. Staff are always friendly and happy to recommend. The food is consistent and the ambiance buzzy and a little crowded. One of my favourite default setting go-to places.

Met here, got engaged here, and been every year since.
Each visit is a friendly and as excellent as the first.
Expresso martinis are some of the best in town too!

Sat in my favourite area near the grill. Claires oysters were smaller than usual but good; brill was cooked to perfection. Not a cheap restaurant but still one of my favourites!

Great menu and beautiful food. Delicious, fresh and a diverse range of fish dishes. The place is on the smaller side and slightly noisy when we were there at a peak time but the place had a nice atmosphere. A definite recommendation for any seafood fans.

Even though on my own this time, made to feel entirely welcome and an important customer. Always warm and professional service despite the frenetic pace which is a key part of the ambience and the Wright Brothers experience. You know what you are going to get and never disappoints.
I always have a smile on my face on the way to the restaurant and indeed as I leave.

Not such a good visit as usual. Whitebait very small portion and was lukewarm and the scallops though tasty were overpriced. Fish soup good. Do t usually come at lunchtime so maybe that was the problem though it wasn’t full

I visit this place frequently & love it. The waiting staff were great, the food as always was gorgeous, fresh & cooked to perfection. Some times this place is very full & noisy but this time it wasn't too bad as i booked an earlier evening in the week.

Service and food were absolutely amazing - the waiter topped up our wine and water glasses every time they were looking low. The food was delicious and cooked in front of us which is a nice touch in the restaurant!

Really enjoyed the atmosphere and ambience of this lively restaurant. The style is simple and un-fussy but the quality of food and service are excellent. The vibe was warm and friendly and the staff were really welcoming, friendly and professional. There were 4 of us aged from 22 to 59 and we all really enjoyed it

Went to WB for husband’s birthday lunch (formal dining is too stuffy for us). Food was deliciously tasty, well cooked and presented. Staff were warm and friendly and I loved the way we could see what was being done in the cooking area. Will be going back.

Service was very good. Two items on the fish menu were already @off' when we got there reducing the choice. Both the plaice and the dressed crab did not represent good value

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.
