A seafood lover’s dream London weekend

Desperate for a taste of summer? Dive on into a weekend of top quality shells, scales, and tentacles, without leaving London. 

Friday

Get on with your fishy business as soon as you’re allowed to leave the office with a trip to Wright Brothers Soho. The beautiful restaurant has been serving oysters for decades, and if you get there between noon and 6 pm you can slurp them down for just £1 a go.

If you’re hungry for more affordable luxury go claim a table at Burger & Lobster where the luxurious crustacean will set you back just £23.

Oysters and Champagne… because the weekend is just around the corner! ✌️

Saturday

Check the line-up for Brockley Market, a south London favourite that offers farm stalls, coffee stands, and street food.

Mike and Ollie’s fantastic middle-eastern flatbreads are stuffed with hummus, chili, herby salads and fried mackerel that’s been fished from Eastbourne by their pal Chris.

If you’d prefer an easterly pilgrimage then Broadway Market’s got options; Fin and Flounder is a proper fishmonger that also has a stall on Saturdays. Choose one of their fantastically crunchy posh fish finger sarnies.

Alternatively, pop around the corner to Netil Market for an Asa Fish Iyu Afro-taco from Lemlem Kitchen.

Highbury institution Prawn on the Lawn moved into bigger premises last year – a sign that their offering is better than ever. Skip the namesake dish in favour of the Szechuan prawns.

Sunday

If your favourite food comes from the water, why not consume it on the water? Book ahead for a cruise with London Shell Co, London’s only floating supper club.

Their four-course feasts are served on board a barge that sails from Camden and back while you dine on seasonal, seafood-centered dishes that come with expertly chosen wine pairings.

And if you’re still not done… waddle back through Camden to Hook for some highly ethical and seriously delicious fish and chips.
