The Best Places to Eat Oysters in London

Aphrodisiac or not, we'll be indulging in oysters all winter.


You don’t need to be by the sea to get your oyster fix. In time for Oyster Season, we’ve found the top spots in London where you can enjoy beautifully fresh oysters, from laid-back eateries to sophisticated spots for the ultimate luxurious evening – after all, there’s nothing quite like oysters and champagne…


Blakes Hotel

Seafood Platter at Blakes Hotel

Chelsea’s chic Blakes Hotel, the unassuming haven of understated and absolute luxury, has launched their new Seafood Platter to coincide with this year’s Oyster season, making them the place to go for the freshest seafood this winter. The platter, which includes a whole lobster, langoustines, oysters, mussels, prawns and clams amongst other shellfish, launched back in September and is now (luckily for us) a permanent fixture on their menu. Accompanied by Tabasco sauce, lemon, vinaigrette, spicy tomato sauce and mayonnaise, the gloriously fresh and well-presented platter is a sharing plate for two and very much deserves to be seen (and eaten) this winter. Pair with crisp wine and champagne poured by the charming staff and make sure to take advantage of the bloody mary station before you leave! Spoil your taste buds with splendour and book your table now at

Wright Brothers Battersea

Wright Brothers, Oysters

The latest Wright Brothers outpost is located in the new Battersea Power Station development just by the River Thames, providing beautiful riverside views. Come summer, there’ll be nowhere more idyllic to sip and slurp your oysters – but in the meantime, indulge indoors with a large platter of fresh, juicy oysters selected by seafood specialists Ben and Robin (the actual Wright brothers). Don’t leave without trying the dressed oysters, too – our favourites are smoked on mini Ritz-style crackers topped with pickled cucumbers and horseradish. Even better, the oysters are £1 a pop between 3 – 6 pm every day. 26 Circus West Village, Battersea Power Station, London SW8 4NN

Bentley’s Oyster Bar & Grill

Bentley's Oyster Bar

Having served fish for over 100 years, the one thing Bentley’s knows is good seafood. Now, under the watchful eye of Richard Corrigan for 10 years, the oysters have become front and centre of this establishment. Overindulge with friends with a glass (or ten) of champagne and The Royal Seafood Platter – particularly enjoyed al fresco on the terrace come summer. 11-15 Swallow Street, London W1B

J Sheekey Atlantic Bar

J Sheekey Atlantic Bar

At J Sheekey’s Atlantic Bar, all seafood is sustainably sourced, so next time you have a hankering for some oysters take a stroll to the West End. Sit inside and watch as the chefs prepare your food in the open kitchen, or outside outfitted with blankets and heaters, making for the most leisurely evening. 33-35 Martin’s Court, London WC2N  


Wiltons, Oysters

Since its inception in 1742, Wiltons has been known for two things – great oysters and great hospitality. So much so, in fact, that they were awarded a Royal Warrant in 1836, specifically for their oysters. If you fancy some seafood that has clearly stood the test of time then look no further than this Jermyn Street classic. 55 Jermyn Street, St James’s, London, SW1Y 6LX.

Kaspar’s at The Savoy

Kaspar's at The Savoy


What could be more inviting than enjoying a dozen oysters in a room reminiscent of the roaring 20’s? With cut-glass mirrors, brass railings and a silver leaf ceiling, you’ll feel as if you’ve been swept up into something from The Great Gatsby. If you’re partial to a swanky evening out on the town, then Kaspar’s at The Savoy is definitely worth a stop. The Savoy, Strand, London, WC2R

HIX Oyster & Chop House

HIX Oyster & Chop House

Mark Hix’s first solo venture is one full of British classics with a twist and a menu in constant flux to accommodate the seasonal changes. There is a marble oyster bar creating the perfect space for you to enjoy these delicacies which are brought in from the British Isles, so here you’ll be getting authentic food through and through. 36-37 Greenhill Rents, Cowcross Street, London EC1M

Bibendum’s Oyster Bar

Bibendum Oyster Bar

Now being helmed by superstar chef Claude Bosi, Bibendum’s Oyster Bar has undergone a menu revamp to include an all-new weekday breakfast and weekend brunch which include novelties such as the Bibendum Oyster Omelette. The oyster bar remains untouched as do the six varieties on offer which you can enjoy with a bottle of your favourite wine after a long day. 81 Fulham Rd, Chelsea, London SW3
