Although its muted frontage makes it the wallflower of Kingly Street, aficionados find plenty to like at this good-looking, laid-back shellfish specialist – ‘the place to eat oysters in London’, raves one reader. The split-level dining room is a smart, on-trend mix of polished wood, bare bulbs and reclaimed tiles, while the daily menu offers ‘sparkling’ seasonal shellfish, seafood staples and assorted blackboard specials. Watch the chefs at work in the ‘buzzing’, high-ceilinged basement or sit at the ground-level ‘raw bar’ and sample the best of the day’s catch – perhaps a platter of bracingly fresh natives from the owners’ oyster beds on the Helford river. Our highlights include perfectly picked crab, fish soup and ‘juicy’ roast plaice with confit garlic and celeriac, while well-versed staff can confidently recommend suitable wines or thirst-quenching stouts and porters.
