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.

Had a great lunch! The serving staff helped with our selections especially describing the different oysters and the result was a fabulous meal. Lovely combinations of flavours served by a very attentive, knowledgeable but not over powering staff. Highly recommended

Thank you so much to Richie who served us! I think this was perhaps the best service I have ever received. Super knowledgeable, helpful and incredibly attentive. The food was exceptional as was the atmosphere but the service by far out-shined a pretty incredible restaurant!

We ate here last night and shared beef tataki (melt in the mouth), Burrata and aubergine caviar (delicious) and Madagascan tiger prawns with salad and fries, washed down with a nice bottle of Picpoul, and a glass of port at the end of the meal. Service was attentive and efficient (although the table next to us complained a lot that they weren't being served, but I think that had more to do with him focusing more on the lady in front of him than trying to get the waiters attention, as the rest of us all seemed to have plenty to eat and drink!). I have had drinks in the downstairs bar before, but this is the first time I have eaten here. We will be back I'm sure as we both work nearby.

Took my mother for her birthday on Saturday night. Great atmosphere, very attentive and knowledgeable service and really fresh food. We went as she's a pescatarian and wanted to give her loads of good food options. We shared the house platter to kick off which was lovely, the periwinkles a bit of a battle but Oysters, mussels and shrimps very fresh. Followed with crab claws, salmon ceviche, half lobster with fries and black pepper crab. The only half issue was the crab which was a monumentally messy experience as it comes in a yoghurt and almond sauce. Very tasty and certainly makes you eat slowly! My wife and mother loved their dishes... Couple bottles of reisling and a few starter cocktails - bill came to £250 for 3 which for seafood and quality of service plus good vibe was very fair. Highly recommend for couple or groups - obviously if you love seafood and shellfish!

Myself and hubby are huge seafood fans, and we have wanted to visit Wright Bros for ages. We finally settled on a Saturday early evening, and we arrived just as it started to fill up. Our waiter really made the experience for us. He was a young man from Hungary, and his knowledge of fish was just incredible, as were his serving skills and fish filleting abilities. When we go back we will ask for him! Yummy food, not cheap but so worth it.

Dined at Wright Brothers last night and had a lovely meal of lights plates with good recommendations from our server. Followed by sharing a sinful chocolate fondant. Will definitely return and recommend to others.

I ordered lemon sole as my main which was fresh but the friendly waitress did a messy job filleting it. Food was fine but nothing to exclaim about. We went on a Monday night so not much atmosphere.

By far the most amazing seafood in central London, in the heart of Soho. Very nice and cosy atmosphere, great sercvice, good value for money. Not pretentious, a place where you can actually enjoy your food.

Gourmand Gunno platinum reviewer 30 August 2013

I knew I had heard the name Wright Brothers (beyond clearly the famous aviation pair) somewhere and it was an unexpected pleasure to lunch recently at their Soho restaurant. Their original success stems from the siblings’ iconic establishment in Borough Market and the enterprise now comprises not only this venture and the one in Soho, but also a pub in Cornwall and a catering business. The concept is not complicated: put simply, high quality traditional seafood. There is a strong emphasis on the freshest ingredients and British produce – both clear positives in my view. The restaurant is not explicitly showy or trendy, but it doesn’t need to be: the food is excellently prepared, the atmosphere relaxed and the service efficiently friendly. We sat at their terrace at the back, perfect for a late summer lunchtime, and although we arrived promptly (at 12.15), many tables were reserved and the place soon filled up, encouraging signs. The menu changes daily and comprises shellfish (priced from £2.50), oysters (from £5, for three) and a range of starters and mains. Both my comrade and I were tempted by the whole roast Cornish place, served with confit garlic, celeriac and pancetta. This was accompanied by a side of gem salad with mustard vinaigrette. The dishes arrived promptly and the fish was just perfect, fresh and juicy, as if from the sea, lightly scented with oil and lemon and combined with some well thought-through ingredients. Celeriac may have become increasingly ubiquitous on the London dining scene this summer, but it did work with this dish. Even the salad, where restaurants often fail, was presented well and clearly prepared with a home-made dressing. Wines looked interesting, but we just opted for water and then finished with espressos. At around £50 for two, including service, we were happy diners and would return.

Friday night is buzzing in the basement at Wright Brothers. Clean bathrooms – extra brownie points from me fantastic whitebait – homemade tartare sauce fish pie was warm, comforting and deep filled with delicious cheesy mash top great place for a business lunch or dinner as the menu is quite short so you spend less time debating what to have and just get on with it its all fresh and delicious now off to explore the wright brothers other ventures…
