SquareMeal Review of Wright Brothers Borough Market

Bronze Award

Wright Brothers now have outlets across the capital, but this is where it all began for London's uncrowned oyster kings. Everyone loves the relaxed vibe and service is just right – "attentive when needed, but otherwise leaving everyone to their own devices". Bag a seat at the counter or at one of the high tables before eyeing the blackboards. "Wonderful" briny oysters are a must, but the daily menu takes in various other seafood wonders too, from smoked mackerel pâté and potted shrimps to "sublime" turbot or brill with cavolo nero, turnips and horseradish sauce. The fish soup "merits much discussion" (in a good way), while big spenders splash out on indulgent fruits de mer. Value for money can be a "bit on the high side", but this is still a top spot: "I'm never disappointed here", says a fan who "grew up by the sea".

Awful food but great staff

After reading the menu I was practically fighting to get into the door to eat here but what a disappointment! By 7.30 over half of the menu options were sold out, options that had attracted me to book in the first place. 
I decided against a starter for that reason and went for a dessert instead. The main mussels were good, the sauce was very watery though. I chose the lemon posset for dessert which was so tart it was unpleasant to eat. Coupled with a wine glass that tasted fishy it was a pretty unpleasant culinary experience. 
The staff were friendly and chatty with the right balance of attentiveness and swift service. 
Based on the food alone I'd give it a miss
