SquareMeal Review of
Wright Brothers Soho
Miso soup with pancetta and clams could precede a brimming bowlful of St Austell mussels in Penang curry sauce at the Wright Brothers split-level Soho oyster house. But sparkling fresh seafood ‘au naturel’, such as oysters from the Channel Islands, the west coast of Scotland or Waterford in Ireland, continues to dominate. Sample them for £1 from 12N-6pm as part of the happy-hour offer. Those cockney favourites whelks and winkles are also on hand, though for a full exploration of the sea’s bounty you might prefer the likes of whole barbecued gilthead bream with boquerones, fennel, basil and chilli await. The drinks list, ranging from cocktails to draught Asahi Dry beer, via a raft of seafood-friendly wines, is worth exploring too. Set in food-loving Kingly Court, the restaurant also boasts a private dining room and an alfresco courtyard.
