    Excellent seafood, several visits, loved the fish pie. Best is to sit at the counter or outside if nice weather. Avoid seats near the door, can be very drafty. Very good service.

    Great oysters. Tried the selection and preferred the UK oysters over the Irish or the very skinny Jersey. Great service such a far cry from dodgy steak place opposite. Porter 1850 was very nice.

    As others have said try the Oyster Shooter. Fresh raw Morecambe Bay oyster in Wright Brothers' special spicy Bloody Mary blend. Eat the caper, then down the shot then bite the lemon. Very good.

    Always book in advance. V. popular. Special Japanese Oysters are absolutely amazing & very moreish. Soy, Ginger & fresh Wasabi make this a brilliant combination. So good we ordered more.

    Popular seafood place at the edge of Borough Market. Had the Hake Fillet special, was fantastic! Also tried the oysters with pickled strawberries and mint, highly recommended!

    A wide range of oyster variations written on blackboards above the bar, α relaxed but buzzy atmosphere, good service and affordable prices in the heart of the oldest London food market Read more

    Lots of talk of wine and prosecco, but for me it has to be a glass of dark, rich porter that's the obvious accompaniment for seafood, and here they have it in spades. My tip: Whitstable Oyster Stout.

    When a pair of oyster farmers open their own restaurant, it’s not surprising if it’s a huge hit. Our tip? Eat their oysters Japanese style with a dash of wasabi, ginger and soy. Read more

    I was in Borough market branch,we had Oysters ,shallots and a bottle of wine.Food was delicious but to be honest the sparkling wines in the list are way too expensive. Vibrant atmosphere!

    If you like shellfish this is your place: they have a wide range variety of oysters. Highly recommended for the quality and for the service.

    Have always liked coming here but have to say the new front of house dude is a complete cock. Loves to make everything a problem-go to Applebees to get good seafood and avoid the pretentious Fr twerp

    Oysters are delicious. Good very good but it should be rated as £££ not ££ - 6 oysters, a bottle of water and beef pie was £47

    6-7 varieties of delicious oysters from UK and France. Whole crab and other seafood is very fresh.

    Food is nice (tiny mussels), service SUCKS. A service charge is included in the bill, but they have the gall to get snotty if you don't leave change as well. Also, they do SELECTIVE pay in advance.

    Borough Market is a tourist swamp, so make the best of it with a plate of raw bar and a bottle of crisp white wine. Classic.

    Great ambience and food, but a real pity about the rather intense and almost fascist service.

    Don't be deceived, there's no porter on tap. Otherwise though this a serviceable restaurant which is inexplicably themed on early powered flight.

    The wild Colchester oysters are amazing, team them with some of the house prosecco for a totally amazing palate pleaser!!

    I was asked to give my card or pay in advance. Couple who arrived later were not asked. So if you like being discriminated against for no reason, go here. And if you like paying £50 for a meal + drink

    I have been here many times and I was very disappointed last night when the bartender impolitely told us he didn't have a table and didn't even offer us to wait at the bar. Felt unwelcome 😞
