While any connoisseur will argue that natural oysters are hard to beat, the dressed oysters here are a must try. We couldn't get enough of the Cucumber, apple and dill, the Jalapeno and coriander, and the Soy Sauce, pickled ginger and chopped wasabi. Served in sets of three, these are the perfect flavour explosions. Of course the best bit; there's even a daily oyster hour offering £1 oysters between five and six in the afternoon!
Oysters not your bag? The wider menu is extensive. You'll find small plates such as Fish soup with rouille, croutons and Lincolnshire poacher and Salt cod croquettes with aioli. Large plates including Wright Brothers fish pie, Roast Dorset crab, or a Whole baked sea bream with fennel and cucumber, and of course the infamous Wright Brothers’ Seafood Platters available in three sizes.
While you will find three other London based Wright Brothers restaurants; the Oyster & Porter House in Borough Market, Soho Oyster House, and Spitalfields, you will only find one Mermaid. So for your next oyster fix, be sure to head to South Ken.
