London listed building reels in seafood specialist for newest venue

A seafood specialist is set to bring the taste of the sea to the heart of London with its newest venture.

Property firm Mercers’ Company has announced that Wright Brothers has signed for its latest London restaurant at 1 Frederick’s Place in the centre of the city.

The firm, which specialises in fresh seafood through its wholesale and fisheries business, has secured the 6,000 sq ft space on the ground and basement levels of the grade II listed building for a new restaurant.

Designed by Macaulay Sinclair, the venue is set to feature a shellfish display, bar and private dining room.

The restaurant will be the latest in the business’ five-strong portfolio which include venues in Borough, Soho, Spitalfields, South Kensington, and Battersea.

Robin Hancock, co-founder of Wright Brothers, commented: “With iconic landmarks including St Paul’s Cathedral and the Bank of England on our doorstep, Frederick’s Place is an ideal location for expanding our restaurant offer within the city.

“Since launching our original restaurant 15 years ago in Borough Market, we have continued to grow our brand and now look forward to revealing our sixth restaurant in London.”

Simon Taylor, property director at the Mercers’ Company, added: “Known for their refreshing take on seafood and their growing customer base, Wright Brothers is the ideal occupier for the prime restaurant space at Frederick’s Place.

“Investing in our property portfolio to regenerate pockets of London has been our main focus, with Frederick’s Place at the forefront of this strategy; this specialist restaurant signing alongside recent news of MJ Hudson moving into 1-3 Frederick’s Place, will create a buzzing community hub in the heart of the city.”
