Because we spend most of our time adulting these days, we don’t often have a free day to wander around London. But if we do, we’ll be heading straight to Wright Brothers for a session of afternoon drinking and oysters. Porter or bubbly, from 3-6pm every day (including weekends) their oysters are a quid apiece, which makes it a classy and surprisingly affordable way to drink the afternoon away, all while pretending you’re in control of your finances and that you don’t have a drinking problem.
