Oysters are something of a passion…

coming as they do from both Britain and Ireland.

We shuck them in front of customers, opening more than any other London restaurant, often more than 1,000 a day. As for varieties, ask Filippo. He is one of our star shuckers, a man for whom an oyster is a point of discussion.

Where to eat in Bentley’s

We are on a pedestrianised street, so if it’s warm, The Terrace is the place to be. Then there is the bar - great cocktails - on one side of the ground floor and The Oyster Bar on the other. In the latter you can enjoy the menu at the bar, or at the tables which are opposite the bar. Upstairs in The Grill you can enjoy everything from oysters to baked lemon sole, a mixed lamb grill to steamed Cornish fish with Thai spices and more. Linen-clad tables, a wooden floor and Richard’s art collection adorn the walls creating a warm and friendly atmosphere.

Bentley’s opened its doors in 1916

It’s still here, although somewhat updated. Richard Corrigan bought Bentley’s in 2005, keeping much of the original building intact - like the wonderful art deco windows and the original marble oyster bar - but giving everything an overhaul.

The grand Dame of swallow street

Since 1916 Bentley’s has been serving it’s fish and chips and feeding the hungry shopping masses for almost 100 years, a haven for fresh oysters, grilled fish and steaks from around the British Isles and is now under the watchful eye of Michelin starred Chef Richard Corrigan.
