Wright Brothers drop anchor at Battersea Power Station

Seafood and oyster specialist Wright Brothers will open a flagship 150-cover restaurant this summer as the first businesses move into the redeveloped Battersea Power Station.

It will be Wright Brothers’ fifth restaurant since opening their first at Borough Market in 2005. The business began as a seafood wholesaler three years earlier – a role that has grown to supplying 250 top restaurants. This summer, Wright Brothers will move the wholesale part of their operation to Billingsgate.

Praised by the latest Harden’s Survey for their “terrific oyster selection … fabulous dressed crab … and superb mussels”, Wright Brothers specialise in top-quality sustainable seafood served simply – with oysters at £1 a pop.

Battersea Power Station, with its famous 1930s Grade II-listed silhouette, is finally opening for residential and commercial use this year, more than 30 years after generating its last electricity.

Circus West, the first commercial zone to open in the redevelopment, has decided not to invite the usual catering suspects on board, but to concentrate on quirkier independents. Alongside Wright Brothers there will be the first UK branch of the Copenhagen pizzeria Mother; all-day dining at Duckroad, sister restaurant to Soho’s Ducksoup and Rawduck in London Fields; and the Dodd’s London gin distillery, relocated from Bermondsey.
