Seafood
Due to social distancing measures we will not be able to seat people in our Borough Market restaurant, instead guests will seat in our outdoor dining space under the beautiful art-deco market for dinner reservations Tuesday – Saturday. At this time the main market will be closed, and the only guests allowed in this space will be those with reservations. We will be serving a reduced alfresco menu of Mediterranean inspired seafood, alongside some Wright Brothers classics.

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 Gareth Cleland'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 th

The food was excellent and was prepared quickly. The service was friendly and efficient. It wasn't clear that the tables were on the other side of the street from the restaurant and also it wasn't clear that we should use the toilet back inside but those were minor issues.

During Covid-19 they are seating costumers inside borough market. Really unpleasant set up. It feels like street market while paying the price of high end restaurant.

Fabulous restaurant as long as you don't mind being close to your neighbour. Not much room but more than compensated for by the fabulous food and service.

The starter was a big let down, House Platter, the prawns were like mush (powered). Some prawns weren’t even whole and clearly they shouldn’t have been served. The whelks were sandy so it led to a horrible taste in the mouth. Oysters weren’t great, had better and shockingly they weren’t shuck. Worse part of a meal I’ve had there. Mains delicious, lobster and mussels were very tasty and well prepared. Vegetables beautiful.

Love Wright Brothers! It’s a little on the expensive side but if you are a fish and shellfish aficionado, you could do a lot worse than book a table here. Food is great, really good and they always have such a wide choice of excellent oysters One can chat with the chefs as they prepare meals as the kitchen can be viewed from the restaurant bar seating area. Chefs are friendly and knowledgeable and serving staff keen! The only slight downer is alcohol. Wine, in my humble opinion, is a little overpriced. I think they could improve with offering better value whites!! That aside, Wrights is a fantastic place to eat and its location next to Borough Market makes it even more attractive. I’ve dined there quite a few times over the years and look forward to continue doing so!

Really busy and popular seafood joint in Borough Market, lovely fresh seafood and friendly staff. Even though the place was packed literally from 5pm till late, staff are all very friendly and helpful throughout the evening. It's not fine-dining (so don't expect plush seating), but if you are after seafood and a good time, this is your place.

The staff are great but the management have wrecked the place prices up portions smaller and quality poor. Used to go twice a month but will not be going back.

Such a shame used to be really good.

Lovely restaurant, awesome service, fantastic produce! Only gripe would be the content of the platter was a little lacking for the price, and would have liked some more interesting shell fish on there.

The food was excellent, the oysters were exceptional, we were seated at stools at first near the cooking area , which we found too hot so we asked if we could move and this was done quickly and politely. We had one glass of one and the bill came to over £150 which maybe is comparable with other London restaurants, but to me seems expensive, especially when for parties of 2 or less you are eating on stools at a bar counter. So nice place but overpriced in terms of food and setting.

A great place fro a pre-theatre meal within walking distance of the Menier chocolate factory. Wonderful fish - fresh and imaginatively prepared.
A more rustic setting than their branch at Battersea; but the food of the same high standard.
