Wright Brothers Battersea
Opens 11th December 2017
Seafood and oyster specialists Wright Brothers opened the doors to their fifth site, on 11th December 2017, at the iconic Grade II* listed Battersea Power Station by the River Thames.
Designed by Macaulay Sinclair, the 126-cover restaurant and bar with a stylish and contemporary design showcases an open theatre-style kitchen. Guests can watch the chefs at work whilst sitting at the counter or along the centre of the restaurant at mid height marble topped tables. The light and airy space also features a brand new addition to the Wright Brothers repertoire – a centre piece Josper charcoal oven which both seals and enhances the natural essence and flavours of seafood and meat on offer
A spacious, al fresco terrace accommodates up to 40 guests who are able to enjoy views of both the river and the Power Station. Also available to book at Wright Brothers Battersea is the Coal Room, a private dining room that seats up to 30 people and includes audio-visual equipment and when combined with the River Room creates a larger events space.
Group Head Chef Richard Kirkwood has created some exciting new dishes bespoke to Battersea including his take on the classic ‘eclade de moules’ – pine roasted mussels, as well as an indulgent roast shellfish platter and grilled Galician octopus with ajo blanco and smoked jalapeño chilli oil. The menu introduces more meat options cooked in the Josper oven, including East Sussex collar of pork with chimichurri and Bannockburn beef on the bone alongside Wright Brothers renowned seafood classics.
The new restaurant embraces and inspires a new generation of little fish lovers with a children’s menu with favourites such as fresh Peterhead cod grilled or tempura fried and mini shellfish platters.
The drinks menu has a carefully selected wine list designed to complement the food offering, alongside Champagnes and craft beers, pale ales, stouts, IPA’s and Porters – all perfectly match the flavours of the seafood, oysters and meat. The cocktail list includes Battersea exclusive cocktails as well as favourites such as Wright Brothers Bloody Mary and the Mermaid Martini with Grey Goose vodka or Star of Bombay gin, Choya Sake, pickled ginger served with an oyster.
In line with their mission to take the formality out of seafood, Wright Brothers Battersea will host regular oyster and seafood masterclasses and adopt their renowned pioneering Pound a Pop offering: oysters for £1 every day from 3-6pm.

“We’re incredibly excited to be opening a riverside restaurant as part of the Battersea Power Station project, undoubtedly the most exciting development to hit London in the last decade.
Since opening our first restaurant in Borough Market in 2005, we have relished the opportunity to share our passion for shellfish and seafood through our restaurants and our wholesale company, located at Billingsgate Fish Market, supplying not only Wright Brothers but also 270 of the top restaurants in London with the freshest and finest seafood. Battersea is the next step in our journey.”
