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.

We had limited time before a theatre commitment and the staff took this on board. The food was excellent and good value and the accompanying glass of rose for me and a specialist beer for my husband was just right. A very enjoyable meal

Wright Brothers prides itself for the quality of its seafood which on previous visits has lived up to expectation, and it did so again with both of our main courses being very good. However we both found the oyster starters to be a bit lacklustre, they tasted okay but all the oysters we were served this particular evening were all disappointingly small.

Brilliant as always, this is one of our favourite city restaurants. Buzzy and vibrant, couples generally get sat at the bar which is great as you can watch the chefs at work. Never had a bad meal, menu doesn't very often change but the specials are always just that, special.

Excellent service, our server was friendly, helpful and kind, but food rather average and expensive. A very small fish pie with nothing but salmon was £19.00. Smoked salmon starter was £8.00 for 3 very thin small slices. Would assume it's the shellfish that people go for and what we'd have if we went again.

Great food and great service. Our server Bala'es was very helpful and friendly.
Unfortunate that some of the starters were already finished as were some of the oysters (only 7pm!) but everything we had was wonderful

Second time I've eaten here and on both occasions the food has been very good, but a bit on the expensive side. Very good selection of shell fish and all well presented.

I'd booked for two not realising we would be seated at the bar on high chairs. We both found this cramped and a bit uncomfortable. When we asked for table we were told we could only have it for an hour or rather glibly told to 'Just enjoy a new dining experience'. In short, tables appear to only be available for more than two people.

On principle I object to 12.5% for service being added to the bill. I'm not sure where the gratuity goes, so it just feels like a way of upping the price if you don't feel like asking for it to be taken off.

Definitely worth a visit if you like fish and a vibrant atmosphere.

We had bar stools right next to the chef cooking. Its a cosy tiny bistro pub specialising in shellfish. Wright Brothers offers an intimate (small) but great vibrant atmosphere and fun. It was our first time for eating oysters ....if you love them then look no further....this is your place.

Mussels and whitebait to start, both excellent; served properly hot and not overcooked.
Sole and trout to follow; you know when sole is cooked right as the bones do not come away with the fish, which they did not; trout was delicately seasoned so as not to overpower the natural flavour. It's not cheap but it is good value for proper cooking in a relaxed atmosphere. Service is well organised.

great meal as usual at Wright Brothers. love sitting at the counter watching the cooking. Even on a monday the choice is good. Amazing oysters and chorizo, fish soup the best ive had in ages - seemed to be properly made rather than out of a jar. Plaice and dressed crab excellent - keep it up please

Beautiful fresh fish. Very generous portion. We sat at the kitchen bar and watched the chefs. The staff were friendly and gave knowledgeable advice on the menu. Lovely atmosphere in small, funky restaurant. Busy with other dinners on the Sunday evening we went, which is often the case apparently, so glad we booked a table.

We were advised to get the seafood platter which was the dullest most tasteless thing you’ve ever tried. I’m an adventurous eater, but the only ‘normal’ things on there were oysters, prawns and mussels - the rest were various arrays of snails and whole mini prawns with their whiskers still on them. I would have expected at least a little bit of flavour, not comepletely I seasoned seafood, for that price. The other food that was coming out looked good, but unfortunately due to this terrible recommendation we didn’t try it.
Apart from that, good ambience and apart from the guy who recommended the terrible platter, service decent

Small restaurant towards edge of bustling Borough Market. Been there several times. Got there too early this time for our booking, so had first to wander round the stalls. Had two stools by the counter so could watch the cook prepare the fish dishes. I had the dressed crab dish as my main course, which I found easier to deal with than the whole crab which my friend ordered. Wine on the pricey side. Good service from our Polish waitress. Loos downstairs.
