Eating Out & Staying Safe

Dear friends, family & loyal guests,

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we provide a safe space for our team members to work and guests to eat out and enjoy themselves, we will therefore only be opening Wright Brothers Borough Market and Battersea from 9th July. We will keep you updated when we decide to open our other restaurants.

We have limited the number of bookings we take to ensure your safety and we will not be serving drinks in the bar. We will be offering a reduced menu of Mediterranean inspired seafood plates alongside our classics including oysters and shellfish platters.


Please take some time to familiarise yourself with our new booking policy. We take the safety of our staff and guests extremely seriously and are trying our best to keep things as normal as possible however, you will notice some changes.

We kindly ask that if you or anyone in your household have any symptoms Covid-19 or have tested positive in the last 14 days that you cancel your reservation and stay at home.

The government guidelines are that two households can meet up so please bear this in mind when making bookings. Group bookings are limited to a maximum of up to 6 people at Battersea and 4 people at Borough Market. Each table will have 90 minutes (we will have to be strict on dwell times to allow for a thorough cleaning between all sittings) and there will be a cover charge of £10 per person if you no-show on the day or cancel with less than 12 hours notice (card required at time of booking).

We ask that you make your reservation online and avoid calling or emailing unless essential. Bookings are highly recommended and will be prioritised, walk ins will be accommodated where possible.

We kindly ask that children are supervised and seated at the table at all times.

Please arrive promptly at the time of your booking to ensure that we have enough time to sanitise each new table and avoid a queue forming. We will hold your table for 10 minutes and will release it automatically after this time. We will also be encouraging all guests to complete our online Test & Trace form in line with government guidelines. Your data will not be used for any other purposes (unless you also opt-in to our marketing communications) and will be deleted after 21 days.

Due to social distancing measures we will not be able to seat people in our Borough Market restaurant for dinner, instead guests will seat in our outdoor dining space under the beautiful art-deco market for dinner reservations Tuesday – Saturday. At this time the main market will be closed, and the only guests allowed in this space will be those with reservations.

We are offering limited number of walk-in tables for lunch at Borough and Battersea. For our opening times please click here for Battersea and click here for Borough.


Due to government guidelines we unfortunately will not be hosting our Oyster Masterclasses for the time being. As soon as this changes we will email everyone who was booked onto a class to rearrange.
