Wright Brothers - Spitalfields
Characterised by the stunning marble oyster bar which invites counter-style dining while chefs shuck and prepare the freshest oysters in front of you. The seafood at Wright Brothers comes sourced via their own wholesale business in Billigsgate market. Feast on huge seafood platters, packed with fresh shellfish alongside a seasonal selection of delicious small plates and flavourful mains like the tempura fried soft shell crab with sriracha mayonnaise, winter slaw & fries.
The bar serves a comprehensive range of seafood friendly wines and cocktails, which can also be enjoyed outside on the 'Market Terrace’— a heated terrace which allows for year-round alfresco dining.
Oyster lovers should visit between 3-6pm daily to enjoy their 'Pound a Pop' offer: oysters for just £1 each.
We headed for and Valentine's Evening supper at the counter, and had a wonderful evening. Some of the best oysters I've had in a long time, and a couple of other bits from the starter menu to pick at were delightful (cuttlefish croquettes were winners, thumbs up for the fritto misto, and out in left field was the octopus which was a very pleasant surprise). Staff were absolutely delightful and I'll certainly be back!
God range of food a little pricey but they have small plates to share. Excellent friendly service and good atmosphere
We went on a Sunday evening so expected it to be quiet. The food was good and the serving staff friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
Again another lovely meal at Wright Brothers.
Food amazing (maybe a little expensive) service always good, always try to please and will change things on menu when they can.
Defo everyone should try, we prefer to be at the counter with the hustle and bustle.
The food was great as expected with Wright Brothers. The service was excellent and the staff were very accommodating and let us sit down 15 mins prior to opening to escape the cold outside.
Great service great food - would definitely return
This was an early birthday treat for a girl I had been courting for months (I was on holiday for her actual birthday). The staff were very friendly and even organised a birthday cake. When we got there she told me she wasn't interested in me, and brought her friend along to make it less awkward.
Great oysters though. Tuna tartare was a little salty, but that might have been my tears.
Service was excellent. Even to chef giving us a master class on how to get all of the meat out of our roasted crab
My favourite restaurant, I love sitting at the bar and watching the staff prep the seafood platters. The food has never disappointed.
Always lovely service delicious oysters and amazing Bloody Mary! One of my favorite places!
Dinner at Spitalfield : Fantastic food, fresh ingredients, inventive cuisine and skilfully cooking. Add a faultless service. Overall, an absolute treat !
We had a lovely evening with a good selection of seafood and great cocktails. Personal highlights were the smoked oysters and the Galician double sucker octopus with ajo blanco and jalapeño oil. However, the small plates were overpriced considering the portion sizes.
A really enjoyable meal with great fish and wine.
Great whelks and clams and oysters in a brilliant setting
Oysters are very fresh, a good seafood place. Before 6 pm is happy hours, £1 per oyster. Suitable for dates as well, romantic ambience.
Top quality service and oysters were gorgeous would definitely recommend the shell fish
My boyfriend and I had a great time here. Staff were friendly and accomodating and the food was excellent - particularly the oysters and the cuttlefish and squid ink risotto. We’ll be back!
Lovely meal again, brilliant staff. We will be back next time in London
Not their best - we visited on Christmas Eve and one starter was missed; the wrong main served and then a sole served undercooked (which was claimed as standard but the fish would not fillet off the bone) tuna was thick and fatty
We love this place (no pun!) but this wasn't great - money off the bill and the under-cooked sole not charged for helps but the claim about the original sole was rudely delivered and incorrect
Not the best seafood I’ve ever had. I love cocktail sauce with my seafood and they didn’t have any.
Great appetizers, high quality fish. Deserves its reputation when you are looking for more than fish and chips. Too many servers made ordering confusing but food and wine came on time. Good wine list.
We had a lovely meal and service was excellent. Very understanding when we changed the time and then came late!
Asked to be seated by the window as it was my birthday
I ordered tuna and chips. The tuna was over cooked and the chips under cooked. I sent both back. They replaced them with much better versions but the tuna dish was very below average. Thin cut and little salsa verde. Very disappointing. It wasn’t busy either so no excuses on the cooking front, just sloppy work.
Simply wonderful. Great foodie experience with friendly staff and a great menu.
Perfect birthday treat for the wife! Ilad at the Oyster bar was fantastic, providing perfect recommendations for us foodies.
Never fails, always deliver, great evening!
Went for our anniversary. Staff very obliging to our request for a cosy corner. Food was great. Not cheap but exceptional quality.
Third time here and never disappoints. Made booking about a week earlier and process was trouble free. Wonderful food and good service - not rushed and food was served promptly. Oysters are superb! Will return!
Excellent food. Brilliant service, serving staff very knowledgeable. Nice atmosphere. Would definitely return.
We recently visited Wright Brother Spitalfields again. Amazing food and service. If you love Oysters and shellfish - Wright Brothers is a must. It was a special occasion and Carmela made it such a special meal. She went out of her way and was amazing. We were celebrating a joint birthday with friends and were bowled over by the service. Carmela and her colleagues Istavan and Heather are deserving of praise. The seafood platter is top notch and of exceptional quality. The cocktails were mouthwatering. This has become one of favourites and will be visiting very soon. Thank you to all the team at Wright Brothers Spitalfields.
lovely friendly staff and amazing oyster happy hour
Definitely the best of the Wright Bros venues. Excellent food and not as noisy as other branches.
AMAZING SERVICE AS ALWAYS FROM JOSH, MARTINA, LUKE AND THE WHOLE TEAM - THEY ARE IMPECCABLE WITH CUSTOMER SERVICE...... WE HAVE BEEN COMING HERE SINCE THEY OPENED AND ALWAYS ENJOY IT.... BUT THERE ARE SOME GREAT NEW DISHES ON THE MENU PARTICULARLY AT THE MOMENT (WHOLE BRILL) V V V FRESH!
We went to celebrate Thanksgiving in London and wanted a unique experience, which is exactly what we got. The restaurant had a very nice feel to it, friendly service, and tasty seafood dishes. The crab dish was a lot of work, but worth it for the taste.
Amazing oysters for my boyfriend's birthday meal. Great to have with a pint of Guinness. Very good service & good value for money. Our new favourite place!
Absolutely Amazing... 🥰
Terrible dinner at 8pm on a Saturday night no seafood left! Not a patch on borough market
Great place for seafood. The service is attentive and the staff make sure you have a great time.
The wine selection is fantastic. I would recommend it either for a business lunch or a couple dinner.
As always, it’s been amazing. I have been a couple of times now and I have never been disappointed. The cocktails are delicious, the food is fresh and the service is very friendly. I would definitely always come back!
