The full menu can be found below. For those looking for wine recommendations the dinner will also be on offer with wine pairings for £75.

On Thursday 21st June an exclusive oyster masterclass will be hosted by Wright Brothers founders Ben and Robin aboard an MBNA Thames Clippers boat. Guests will be able to pick up tips from the experts themselves, sample a selection of 6 oysters and enjoy two glasses of Fiol Prosecco whilst gliding down the Thames enjoying the views of iconic London landmarks including St Pauls, the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament.

The boat will depart from London Bridge City Pier at 6.40pm and will arrive at Battersea Power Station Pier at 7.50pm. Carry on the experience at Wright Brothers’ outdoor oyster shucking station, or book a table at the restaurant and enjoy 20% off of your bill.

For the first time in Wright Brothers history they will be cooking up the ultimate crayfish boil on Saturday 23rd June. Renowned head chef Richard Kirkwood has been perfecting the traditional Louisiana dish with a twist.

Guests will be able to dine on this unique combination of crayfish, sweetcorn, potatoes and smoked sausage to their hearts content with a couple of Whitstable Bay Blonde beers for only £40.

To top the Seafood Festival off on Sunday 24 June from 4.30pm, Richard Kirkwood will take to the stage on the riverfront piazza at Circus West Village, with a special cooking demonstration.

He will be whipping up Cornish mackerel two ways; orange ceviche and blow torched, wasabi mayonnaise & pickled cucumber. An event not to be missed for those who want to gain some tricks of the trade when it comes to cooking the sustainable seafood!
