Wright Brothers is our favourite spot to perch with a beer and a pint of prawns, because it feels like you’re in Borough market without having to actually deal with the craziness of the market itself. It overlooks the stalls and specialises in seafood, so you can get everything from a snack to a full-blown seafood tower if you’ve had a bit too much too drink / have lost a bet. Sitting here in the sunshine with a cold tipple is a quintessentially London experience and perhaps the one thing we’d unequivocally travel to Borough for.
