Seafood
Close to the area’s iconic galleries and museums, loyal locals and visitors mix harmoniously in the cosy dining room at Wright Brothers.

Head chef Colin Pritchard has a way of bringing the flavours of seafood out in simple yet inspiring ways. Feast on deluxe fruits de mer, seasonal fish or choose from the daily specials board. A weekday set-menu is available between 12pm - 5pm perfect for lunch or pre-theatre.

Below the restaurant is Wright Brothers’ first ever independent cocktail and oyster bar: The Mermaid. While the emphasis is on wines and cocktails, guests can also choose to dine from the à la carte menu.

Enjoy £1 oysters from 3-6pm daily.

Some of the dishes were below par - turnips were hard, fish pie was dry. The baked oysters were excellent. The seared tuna was very good. Amaretto ice cream was watery but chocolate fondant was delicious. I wouldn’t go out of my way to go to this restaurant.

Quality of food was not good for the amount of cost, the ingredients in the fish pie was 90% salmon which is ok if you asked for salmon pie. They need to up their game on the quality of food for what they are charging customers

Good evening Kevin, thank you for your visit and taking the time to review us as we value every feedback. Wright Brothers fish pie is our signature dish which includes three type of fish, salmon, hake and smoked haddock. It is very important to us to keep consistency of the dish. I passed your feedback to our head chef. If you would have any questions regarding your last visit, please email us on gm.southken@thewrightbrothers.co.uk SK team

Been to other Wright brothers and they have been much better. The upstairs dining room lacks atmosphere. The food ranged from poor to average, we were sat opposite the main door so were constantly blasted with cold air. We ate quickly and left not staying for dessert and not wanting to be there longer than necessary. Food felt uncared for. Terrible fried oysters - think breadcrumbs (have had these tons of times in Soho but here they were poor). Bream (the whole fish was probably the best of our dishes) came served on fridge cold beetroot slices that were just unpleasant. Service was fine.

We had a very enjoyable relaxed family meal, and our 7 year old was accommodated too with simply cooked cod & fries. The fish ( ray, trout, cod, prawns , oysters ) was incredibly good and cooked to perfection. Desserts were great too! Service was very good. It had a nice atmosphere and was full on a Wednesday evening. Would highly recommend and would definitely return.

The food was excellent. Fish is expensive anywhere. However, we found the staff rather lack lustre. Absolutely no smile upon our arrival nor any welcoming words. We were served by different staff members not 'our own" . We felt they were just passing the time until closing. No nod to it being valentine's day, no red rose for the ladies. Disappointing. No reply to an email with a request either.

Lovely place for a special meal out - great fresh fish and seafood on the menu with generous portions. I was too full for dessert but the chocolate fondant looked great. We were seated downstairs, which was very cosy - shame about the loud men at one of the nearby tables, but that was not the restaurant's fault!

This was undoubtedly the best fish pie I have ever tasted. It was full of seafood ingredients and the sauce was perfect and not too creamy.
