Elegant and refined, this place is a hidden gem. Located on Threadneedle Street, next to the Threadneedles Hotel, The Oyster Bar & Grill Room, is a new concept by Marco that looks to build on the history of Wheeler’s, famed for being the oldest fish brand in the world
Inspired by the simplicity of Marco Pierre White’s traditional French cooking, the new menu includes dishes such as roast chicken with woodland mushrooms, as well as classics such as the Wheeler’s fish pie.
We started with half a dozen oysters, perfectly accompanied with a delicious vinaigrette, and a baked camembert with toasted sourdough and roasted vine-ripened tomatoes. The Classic French favourite lobster thermidor was up next - creamy, cheesy and absolutely delicious, with chunky chips and side salad, washed down with a very lovely Riesling. Tricky though it was to find room for pudding, the Eton mess and warm chocolate brownie with ice cream were worth it.
Delicious food, wonderful staff and an ideal location, Wheeler’s is one to add to your must-eat list; the perfect pit stop for a post-work oyster supper.
