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.

Great meal, great time. However, a thief came in and attempted to steal my guests phone. Had I not seen the thief, he would had gotten away with it. The staff must be more vigilant.

Great atmosphere over the lunch hour. Simple menu, nice for a light lunch. Food was good although it was a shame the beef and oyster pie suet crust was not right on the day which was a shame. Seafood platters looked amazing. Will definitely go back again.

This is the way to enjoy a great meal with family and friends. Lots of noise (sometimes too much) but such a vibrant atmosphere with absolutely perfect food. What a treat for us all, including Australian visitors. Thanks again.

Dear Sirs,
Out of five nights in London we dined with you three nights. Missed night no. One because we could not get a table, missed night no. Three because our friends would like to eat at Brasserie Zédel at Picadilly (it was very good, everything homed made).
Your place is so very good, the food is topclass (the oysters are fantastic for a oyster foodie like me).
The staff is also superduper, we were treated so well, and we talked alot about the food.
We will be back, when in London.
All the best, yours,
Michael Ottosen,
The one and only Ottosen visiting your restaurant

I've been there a few times and I love it. The oysters are so fresh - I am particularly keen on a mix of Japanese style and Spanish with hot chorizo. Mains are great and the staff are polite and fun even when it's busy which it usually is.

Using the OpenTable app, I was able to book a slot 15 mins later than the time we wanted...(6.15) on a Saturday evening.
Easy to find, staff all brilliant - efficient but friendly at the same time.
We arrived early, and were shown straight to our seats at the bar.
At first glance, It looks a little cramped - but we didn’t find it so.
We chose whitebait and half a pint of prawns which arrived promptly, and both were delicious.
Mains were both catch of the day, (Place&Turbot)... served with well matched, well cooked accompaniments.

Excellent seafood. Give this place a try.

It’s not our first time there, we have been many times and will continue to do so.
The staff are always great and have time to talk, food is lovely and you can see it cooked in front of you.
Lively bustle and background noise and no horrible music- just people enjoying themselves.

A great restuarant for rustic but well cooked and presented seafood. Loved the atmosphere and the fact you could see the chefs at work. Got a really good tip from our waiter who suggested adding a little green pepper tbasco sauce to the fish pie, which made it even better.

We went for an early dinner. We were shown to two stools adjacent to each other overlooking the cook station!! After some discussion we secured two stools facing in the centre of the restaurant but only on the grounds that we were out by 19.45. This is not an ideal restaurant for couples unless you’ve had a row! Food was fine.

Being from the US, Wright Brothers Borough Market is one of our go to places on our semiannual trips. The oysters are freshest with an excellent selection! The specialty drinks are great. If you like oysters and seafood make sure to go there.
