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.

Just love this place! It’s buzzy and the service as well as the food is fantastic! The only seafood place that I know that serves “Carlingford Oysters” - beautiful! Our server was attentive and very friendly! Will be back for sure.

I haven’t been back to the Borough Market restaurant for an age...but as with their other restaurants it was business as usual. Great food, even for a meaty like me, great wine, and absolutely lovely staff. Our waitress was available when we wanted something but let us enjoy our meal without the ‘everything ok’ you get from other restaurants.

Love this place. It isn’t cheap and the cramped nature won’t be to everyone’s taste, but the food is great and it has a great atmosphere. One thirty on a Saturday seemed to be a good time as you are arriving just as the mad rush is ending. If you like seafood you must go.

This branch continues to deliver excellent food and wine. It is cramped even at the tables so you have to be ready for others to interlope on your conversation. The full house platter dressed crab was disappointing as it was dominated by egg. Scallops and mackerel pate excellent. Good white Loire wines.

Borough Wright Brothers has a great atmoshere, front of house welcoming and very efficient - great sense of team work. The kitchen is flat out, but each plate delivered as though it were the first. We had a great night and we were looked after very well indeed, food and wine delicious

Hi
I have ben a regular visitor to Wright Brothers over the years and in the past always enjoyed it.
I was shocked at the quality of the Beef and Oyster pie this week, a past favourite of mine. As soon as I cut into it to place the Oysters, I realised that the normally rich deep brown gravy was thin and pale. What meat there was turned out to be either very tough or just large lumps of plain gristle. I have never encountered a worse pie - utterly unbelievable. After many years of enjoying Wright Brothers I was quite shocked that something so bad, could be served in such a great restaurant. Of course I didn't pay for the pie and they gave me coffees (seemingly all they wanted to do). The left pie and gristle was unceremoniously dumped into the waste, so clearly no chance of following up from a QC perspective. My spoilt evening still set me back about £70 which I resent. Never again friends.

Starters good, main course of beef and oyster pie disappointing. The beef was chewy and needed to have cooked long and slow, not good enough I am afraid. The fish pie was heavy on the mash. Bit disappointed really.

I've eaten here twice now and both were a great experience. The menu is small but every option sounds delicious. They have a good selection of wines too. It's a small place and can feel a bit cramped at busy times, but on a Sunday evening we had a proper table and it was a comfortable and ambient meal.
