Seafood
Nestled in a corner of Kingly Court, right behind Carnaby Street, Wright Brothers Soho offers a vibrant menu of seafood and shellfish dishes as well as options for meat-eaters and vegetarian diners. The seafood comes from their very own wholesale company as well as from fisheries around the UK ensuring that only the finest and freshest produce makes the menu.

A drinks list includes a comprehensive range of wines, alongside a seasonal cocktail list and draught beers. In summer guests can dine alfresco in the vibrant Kingly Court courtyard.

A semi-private dining room occupies the majority of the lower ground floor and is available for exclusive hire for up to 18 people. Situated within the open kitchen, it offers a unique view of the chefs at work.

Enjoy £1 oysters from 3-6pm daily (3-5pm in December).

A good place for 1st time experience on seafood & oysters if you had not tried them. They carried different variety of oysters from different sources which were good selection.
Service was very attentive and good all the way despite table were small and space were tight.
Overall a good experience.

My wife and I love Wright Brothers but were disappointed with the Soho branch of it. The menu was limited, unlike other ones we've been to. Although we did enjoy the afternoon there, as we were with friends, we wouldn't say that it was because of the restaurant. When we next decide to go to Wright Brothers we would choose another location.

It was a very nice way to spend my 24th birthday. Amazing food, lovely wine, professional service. Our waitress was very polite and helped us to choose a matching wine, and it worked really well with oysters and shellfish plate. Starters and desserts were great too, I have nothing to complain! Cozy and comfortable place, nice atmosphere, definitely will be back and recommend to friends!

Second time coming to the Wright Brothers at Soho, this time with my family visiting from Spain and could not have been any happier with my choice of restaurant.
Everything we had was delicious (especially, the Mussels) and the staff was beyond friendly.

Tasty food. Good place to go for fish and seafood. Pleasant ambiance but would've been nice to have 1 waiter rather than several different people serving us.

This was our first visit and weren’t sure what to expect but we all thought the food and service were excellent. We all had something different and each one of us enjoyed what we had. The staff were pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. Can’t wait to go again.

This is our go-to place to eat whenever we are in London. Food is fabulous, staff are great. We have celebrated large family birthdays at Wrights and everyone has had a wonderful time. Just one small disappointment is that the amazing fish pie is no longer on the menu. Perhaps it will be back next time we visit.

Things started off OK. We were given a nice corner table for two and were promptly served drinks before placing our food order. That's about as good as it got and was downhill from there. Basically the kitchen (or the waiter) forgot to place our order. Delayed appetizers followed by main course 40 minutes later. Took just about two hours for two people to have a two course meal. As a courtesy they offered to give us complimentary dessert, which we took them up on, but I'm the end, they forgot to take the dessert off of the bill. A tragedy of errors. Oh well

It was a return visit from an excellent first visit a few weeks ago. This would have scored full marks if our choices or Starter and Main were available for both myself and my guest/host.

The time for ordering was only around 8:00pm yet there were no mussels or lemon sole (same choice for the two of us) which was very disappointing. I understand Mondays may not always be a good day for dining in seafood restaurants as under the impression that that is the day when fresh supplies might not be delivered (rightly or wrongly ?) but thought Wright Brothers would be an exception and was confirmed by Maleen, whom is outstanding from being impressively remembered me from my previous visit to her detailed knowledge of how the various dishes were prepared etc. But most of all it was her friendly, professional and efficient manner that had made some amends in an unexpectedly disappointed dining experience.

The oysters were very disappointing even at £1 each. Very small indeed. Everything else was good but it’s a very restricted menu these days and we really miss the soft shell crab.

Very disappointing. Had booked for a birthday lunch but wasn't a patch on when came previously.
This was a couple of years ago but now there is a far more limited menu and the whole ambiance had changed and whole experience was all very lacklustre.
As said very disappointing.

Wright brothers never usually disappoint, but the quality of the atlantic prawns had significantly changed upon this visit, extremely small, and full of eggs, not the usual quality, and l am a frequent visitor.

We were drawn to Wright Brothers initially for their £1 an oyster special (before 18:00), but were pleasantly surprised by the new tapas styled menu.

We availed ourselves of the oysters, and some nice wine, octopus, lamb tongues, and a lively pumpkin dish. The service was superb and friendly, and knowledgeable.

Dinner with wine, desserts and port came to approximately £50 a person, with service included.

Definitely, recommended, but plan to arrive early enough for the oysters!!

Nice place for a relaxed dinner with friends. It was pleasantly busy and had a nice vibe to it. We had the Deluxe Seafood Platter which had good seafood, but for £90 should have included more premium items like whole crab or at least half a lobster - we got lots of mussels, clams, whelks (all not very expensive), a dish of crab meat and some oysters. The quality was fine, but thought it should have been more - then again, this is Soho!

That being said, everything else was good - service was good, wine list was decent enough to find two bottles for the table, and other sharing plates were good. We had a particularly lovely grilled squid dish which had the right amount of char and a good balance of red cabbage and almonds making it interesting.

We have been here before and enjoyed a lively friends dinner for 4. It is a bit loud for a romantic dinner for 2 (perhaps downstairs could be quieter) but overall, this is a nice weekday meal amongst friends! Great place for weekend drinks and oysters though - atmotsphere would certainly work for that.

If you love seafood you will love Wright Brothers Soho, nice cosy atmosphere, service was very attentive, had the prawns and cockles to start, muscles for main and the passion fruit posset for pudding all very good quality, my son had the oysters and said they were very nice, no complaints.

Disappointing. This was one of our favorite Soho restaurants but the menu has changed with few main courses and mostly starters. It had a reduced staff for a Sunday night and the main dining room was closed. The manager was surly and I even asked the waitress if the restaurant was closing. Really a pity.

Enjoyed our dinner here, full seafood platter was an excellent mix, and the seacuterie was delicious, only a little bit disappointed with the stuffed squid, too much stuffing and not enough squid. The service was excellent, attentive and efficient. All in all, highly recommended!
