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.

The place is very nice and well set, maybe the high chairs that do not have backup are uncomfortable, the food is of great quality, the presentation impeccable and the service very good. I will repeat for sure.

Fresh well-cooked fish and seafood, fairly priced. Efficient service. We sat at the bar which inevitably is a bit tight for space but comfortable enough. We were told that tables are kept for groups but a couple were sat at a table 10 minutes after we were seated - a bit disappointing. Lots of good wine by the glass, slightly pricey.

Food was as good as always and no complaints on this front. The service, however, was not would I would expect from Wright Brothers. The server was clearly new. He had little knowledge of the wine list, seemed rushed and unsure of himself, and not remotely interested in our experience there. If someone orders bubbles, it's usually a safe indicator that they're celebrating and I also had noted it on our reservation that it was our wedding anniversary. The server didn't once ask us how we were enjoying our meal, if we needed anything, etc. Ordering dessert, we weren't asked about coffee, or tea or wines and when we did order them, he wasn't familiar with them at all. I'm not expecting a server to become my new best friend, but if I'm shelling out £180, I do expect a bit of personality and friendliness. This didn't cut it.

Had a fantastic meal at Wright Brothers. We love oysters and we weren’t disappointed with a good selection.

Service really good; efficient and friendly and we loved watching how excited people got over the deluxe platters!!

Great place for a fun date, a bite with friends or family. Thoroughly recommend this- particularly if you like oysters.

Have been going to Wright’s Oyster Bar for years and never disappointed. Well I could qualify that by saying that it’s always an ah well moment when I see that yet again there is no squid on the menu.

Couples or pairs sit up at the bar and it’s big tables for everybody else. It’s always crowded and it’s not a place for whispering endearments into the shell-like of your companion.

Still I cheered myself up by having four starters a la tapas. They were anchovies, deep fried Whitebait, half a pint of prawns with mayo and grilled sardines on toast all washed down with a bottle of Muscadet.

Very expensive for what you get. A plate of a few boquerones, that were so garlicky and oily, for £5 was not worth the money.
The oysters were a joke, £10 for 3, and they were so small and tasteless. I would not recommend this restaurant to anyone, as it's so expensive and just not worth it at all.

I have been to the Wrights Brothers in Borough Market many times. This is the first time ever we were asked to leave the bar area within the 2 hour slot. My guest arrived late around 6.45, the reservation was booked for 6.30. It was very crowded/cramped & as noisy as usual. The staff were great & the food was brilliant also as usual. At 8.25 we were told in passing the bar area we were sat at was re booked at 8.30. They returned immediately with the bill & asked us to finish our drinks at the other end of the bar to the front of the restaurant. A bit short & sharp but hey that's policy. I will go there again, earlier in the week (as it was a Thursday). Sat in a line elbow to elbow at the bar to eat & being knocked by everyone passing was a bit annoying but that's how it is.

My wife and I took my mum and dad out for a birthday meal and had a lovely time. The food was amazing, the service was very friendly, welcoming and informative, giving us recommendations on wine and food. You must be prepared for the atmosphere, which was loud due to the layout and size of the venue. Tables and seats are quite close together, but for me this all added to the experience.
All the food we had really was amazing.....and we tried quite a few different dishes! I'd definitely recommend this place, and can't wait to go back.

I had the plaice while my two friends had the cod. All were cooked beautifully and very tasty - my plaice was on the bone and accompanied with a few boiled potatoes & a clam and chilli sauce. My friends were over from America and thoroughly enjoyed not only the food but the restaurant furnishing, layout and location. I am lucky enough to have been a number of times and will certainly be returning. The only minor downside was that, on a hot day, the corner we were in was a little warm from both the heat of the day and the open kitchen (though it's great watching the chefs at work!).
