Korean fried whelks and clams could precede a brimming bowlful of Menai mussels 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. 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 pan roasted Brixham ray wing with roasted cauliflower and bacon. 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.
