We came near closing time and were quickly seated for a light dinner. The fresh oyster platter was marvellous. The fish soup was hearty and satisfying, classically served with toast and aioli.

With its ivied mews, row upon row of Poppins-esque

easy to see the charms of South Kensington. And with
superb access to Hyde Park, Holland Park and
Kensington Gardens, as well as the largely
child-friendly and mostly free Museum Quarter (not to
mention more major attractions like Royal Albert Hall)
such charms are easy to make the most of. As welcoming

Description
Close to the area’s iconic galleries and museums, the intimate dining room at Wright Brothers South Kensington offers the finest seafood and shellfish, sourced direct from Wright Brothers' wholesale teams in the famous Billingsgate and Brixham markets. In summer, French doors open on to the street to allow guests to dine alfresco: feast on deluxe fruits de mer, whole fish or choose from the daily specials board. There is a set-menu available Monday to Friday between 12pm - 5pm, perfect for lunch or before a show at the nearby Royal Albert Hall (2 courses for £18.50 or 3 courses for £20.75). They also offer their popular 'Pound a Pop' offer of oysters for £1 between 3-6pm everyday. On the lower-ground floor is Wright Brothers’ first ever independent cocktail and oyster bar: The Mermaid. Open Monday - Saturday from 5pm - midnight. Here the emphasis is on wines and cocktails but guests can also choose to dine from the à la carte menu.
