Very nice restaurant. Nice mix between a relaxed ambiance and great food. Lots of things on the menu + on the black board. My fish was simply delicious. Nice wine selection. Oysters were fantastic.

Lovely service, helpfully guiding through seafood standards, plus a range of daily specials - half pints of prawns, many types of oysters, crab, and several fish of the day; good range of wines, incl by the glass, or beer/Guinness for traditionalists. Good puddings too for a sweet twist

If you want to loose a couple of hours with indulgent seafood and superb drinks I highly recommend Wright Bros. The "small" Fruits de Mer is a meal for two. Excellent stout and what a range of European oysters.

A fantastic place to try a wide variety of oysters! We sat up at the bar right in front of the oyster chef who was absolutely lovely and talked us through all the different types of oysters and made recommendations. We had a half dozen selection, then some of the special oysters. The Spanish ones that came with chorizo were... More

The best seafood restaurant in london. I went there with my nephew who is the best appetite eater companion ever. We had to try their popular seafood. The seafood platter was extraordinary. Very very busy place make sure you book in advance and be on time or you loose your place.

Went in for an early tea with a friend at their recommendation and could not have been more blown away. Sit yourself up at the bar and you can watch the chefs prepare your meal before you. Would heartily suggest the smoked mackerel pate and the mussels in white wine. Be sure to book if you can as it's a... More

Upon entry was greeted by welcoming and friendly staff. The atmosphere was really charming and chilled. Was seated next to the open kitchen which was interesting to see how the chefs prepared the food. Ordered dozen oysters, crab, mussels and sides! Food was fresh, delicious and very filling. I would highly recommend a visit!

The best oyster I've ever eaten! I visited Wright Brothers with my husband on a rainy Thursday afternoon. It was pretty quiet so we opted to sit at the kitchen bar, overlooking the chefs at work. We only popped in to sample a few oysters and thank goodness we did! We opted for a dozen oysters and left the chef... More

Description
Our award-winning Oyster & Porter House is situated at the heart of London's bustling Borough food market next to London Bridge. Our small but perfectly formed dining room is made up of a long oyster bar and high tables. It is relaxed, informal and full of life. The open kitchen, counter seating and blackboard menus all add to its magic. Naturally, our speciality is oysters and throughout the year we offer a wide range, sourced from the best producers around the British Isles and France including our very own oyster farm in Cornwall. Grab an outdoor table, sit back, enjoy a plate of oysters and a glass of wine and soak up the atmosphere of the thriving market - we've been told it's one of the hottest spots in London. Head chef Rob Malyon has a passion and flair for great ingredients cooked simply. We sell only fish and shellfish from sustainable stocks and source as much as possible from small Cornish day boats, embracing our 'sea to plate' philosophy.

Staying in Southwark

Neighbourhood Profile
Southwark
Even before the arrival of the instantly iconic Shard, the riverside scene in Southwark had moved well beyond any up-and-coming phase of development. For quite some time, locals and out-of-towners alike have loved browsing the boutiques of Bermondsey High Street, foraging through the bounteous stalls at centuries old foodie haven Borough Market, and flocking to the banks of the Thames to enjoy some of Britain's biggest attractions such as Tate Modern and Shakespeare's Globe. Despite Southwark's many popular draws, instant calm can be achieved easily by turning down almost any side street. For more urban buzz, a quick stroll across famed bridges like the pedestrianized Millennium Bridge or the ever photogenic Tower Bridge yields access to the very core of Central London. And with London Bridge Station as this neighbourhood's main transportation hub, getting across town (or to anywhere in England for that matter) is a relative breeze.
