Squaremeal Review of Wright Brothers Spitalfields ?

With a striking marble oyster bar as its centrepiece, this branch of Wright Brothers sets expectations swimmingly high from the start. Readers praise the “ideal” location amid vivacious Spitalfields market – best experienced from the sizeable Market Terrace. Otherwise, pull up a pew at the bar and watch as experts shuck oysters or load up mammoth seafood platters: often containing delicacies from WB’s wholesalers in Borough. The “tasty oysters and scallops” are singled out for special attention (“yum, yum, yummy!”), but larger plates such as cod with salsify, celeriac and carpet-shell clams shouldn’t be ignored. If you’ve got the bucks, order lobster (they’re huge and served with due pomp); if you haven’t, the set lunch menu featuring sea bass fillet followed by lemon curd cheesecake is a welcome alternative. A diverse cocktail list and a happy-hour offer of £1 oysters (3-6pm) also make this a sought-after pearl among the City’s seafood eateries.

There is more bang for your buck elsewhere

Mar 2017

We went exclusively to indulge ourselves in a fruits de mer. It was very fresh (as you would hope) and truly delicious but I felt that the platter was a little small, considering we ordered the grand for £65. Each element is in a little glass bowl set on ice and so the quantities are very controlled. When I compare it to Scotts/ Sheekeys/ Randall and Aubin (all admittedly marginally more expensive) there is definitely less crustacea on the platter. Also, the clams were warm, which we both...

A really warm welcome when we arrived. We sat at the bar and had a great view of the chef's preparing each individual order. Fantastic service from our waiter who ensured our needs where met in every way. Good advice on the menu, especially on the oysters. Would highly recommend for seafood fans or anyone wanting a nice bar to drink in.

I have been to Wright Brothers on few occasions for drinks and canapes but not as a sit down meal. the nibbles were excellent then and it had prepared me for things to come for the proper dinning experience. I was not disappointed. Fantastic service and superb food. My friend and I had a really good experience last Friday. Brilliant experience. I'll go there again for the tasty oysters and scallop. Yum, Yum, Yummy!!!! Thank you for a very enjoyable meal.

From the sea

by   (3)

Sep 2015

We were saying farewell to a colleague Jin who likes the sea and all it contains. We have used Borough Market before but the reviews said Spitalfields was the place - and certainly for a group to sit together in peace. Sindy the waitress was attentive and informative. We never went long with an empty glass or bottle. Her colleagues were too helpful - bringing starters before oysters were finished (not what we asked for). We had Oysters to start (6 each) and enjoyed the selection, with Jersey Royals...

Great place

by   bronze reviewer (9)

Aug 2015

I went for the first time to Wright Brothers as part of a evening event and was very impressed how good the canapes were so I decided to take my boss there to celebrate his birthday as I know he is an oyster fanatic. It was not a disapointment at all. Everything was perfect! As an apetiser we choose the hot smoked oyster with horseradish cream and that was yummy!, we then choose a selection of 6 oysters each and as main course my manager choose the sea trout (fish of the day) and I went for Salt-baked...

As the old joke goes, I'm on a seafood diet: I see food, I eat it. Yes, it works better out loud than in print. Well, I wasn't on a diet, I was disgustingly hungover, and normally would have been hunting out a full fry up but as my friend is a pescatarian I had suggested Wright Bros for lunch and was hoping that as long as I could see and eat food I'd be OK.This Spitalfields outpost is in a great location with a huge open front from which you can watch the market-goers bustle on by, however, if you...

Visited for the first time for lunch for four people. Had a booth at back of restaurant. Cocktails very good. The small dishes of fried stuff olives and anchovy dip are to be recommended. The fish was excellent. Between us we had skate wing, brown trout, cod and baked sea bream, all fabulous. Highly recommended.

Ive been to the other branches of Wright Brothers over the last few years but this by far is the best out of the bunch. Took my mum for a birthday lunch last Friday and cant fault the service or food. We were so well looked after and would recommend this branch to anyone.
