Lunching at Wright Brothers at Battersea

Having lived in Battersea in the early 1990s it's always nice to take a trip back; whether it's to have a perfect pint at Battersea Brewery, see a play at the Turbine, or in this case eat with a view of the Thames at Wright Brothers.

With the Power Station finally open, made more accessible by a new tube station and the river bus it's become quite a destination. We'd walked through the centre on a previous visit, most of the shops are on the higher end of the high street prices, but there is a wonderful independent bookshop that's worth checking out (we spent ages looking at a book which shows all the WW2 bomb spots in London, searching for the 2 that destroyed my grandparents houses - yes, they were bombed twice).

We were lucky this visit, it was beautiful English summer's day, so we chose to sit outside on the terrace and people watch as we ate. Whilst we browsed the menu, I sipped a chilled glass of Piper-Heidsieck Essentiel by Wright Brothers Champagne, whilst Alex enjoyed a Wright Brothers Oyster Stout.

How's that for a prawn cocktail?

Delicate ceviche with grapefruit and sliced red onion

We were really spoilt for choice, there were so many classic dishes that sounded delicious. Alex went retro and chose a wild Atlantic prawn cocktail with Marie Rose sauce, and I opted for Aquanaria sea bass ceviche, lime & pink grapefruit. Both dishes were perfectly balanced, with lovely plump prawns for Alex and the right level of acidity to my ceviche.

Half a lobster served with fries, salad and melted garlic butter

Alex then had a whole lemon sole meunière with new potatoes and steamed broccoli (sounds dull, but with almonds it was lovely), and I had half a native lobster with salad and fries and garlic butter. Mine was accompanied by a glass of Chardonnay from the Languedoc, and a 2nd oyster stout for Alex.

grapes, pot of chutney, cream crackers and 2 types of cheese on a wooden platter

We shared a plate of cheese to finish off our meal.


Wright Bros is known primarily for its seafood, but it does have some meat dishes or surf and turf dishes, and a few vegetarian options.


This was a really lovely relaxed meal, the service was friendly with just the right amount of attention, we will make a return visit without a doubt.
