Wright Brothers Oyster & Porter House on Urbanspoon

Square Meal

 

A friend and I decided go to Wright Bros at Borough Market for a recent lunch, because we both felt like having some fish dishes and Wright Bros specialises in exactly that.

It had been a while since I’d been to Wright Bros and although I do remember that I was satisfied after every visit, I’d forgotten just how much I like their dishes. This visit brought my lousy memory back to the forefront.

Compared to their sister restaurant, that is located in Soho, the original Wright Bros is quite small and compact. As a result the ambiance is lively and very cosy & quaint. You can either sit around one of the several barrels, behind the bar overlooking the kitchen or in the central seating area where there are a few tables. I prefer to sit behind the bar, because it allows me the opportunity to see the food being prepared.

All the dishes we tried at Wright Bros tasted good / very good and you could tell the produce was very fresh and full of taste (the menu changes frequently depending on what’s at season and the catch of the day).
