J Sheekey’s Oyster Bar is set around a horseshoe-shaped dining bar that seats 30 with wood-panelled walls lined with Alison Jackson’s photographs of theatrical luminaries from John Hurt and Eileen Atkins to Orlando Bloom and Rosamund Pike. The seafood is outstanding: from oysters to Shetland mussels and Dublin Bay to Cornish crab.


The intimate size and shape of the Oyster Bar mean that it is unsuitable for private hire. However its ever-popular menu can be recreated in other venues and private homes by Sheekey’s event catering division, Urban Caprice.


 J Sheekey’s strength lies in serving the freshest fish and seafood, sourced from sustainable sources.


Wines have been chosen from across the globe to complement the restaurant’s fish and seafood menu.

Lady Blonde's Highlights

Oysters (from £9.50) and Champagne at Sheekeys before heading off to the theatre has to be up there as one of the best ways to spend an evening in London.

Sheekey's Speakeasies: The Magnets

Inspired by the bars of prohibition America, Sheekey’s Speakeasies combine dinner with a great night of entertainment. Music and comedy will be staged behind the horseshoe-shaped bar and punctuated between acts by the freshest fish and seafood including Strangford Loch oysters, stone bass ceviche and octopus. On Sunday 2nd October, the a capella and beat box supremos, The Magnets, will perform pop classics with a twist with the audience at J Sheekey Oyster Bar.

Tickets are £30 and include dinner and the show. Call 020 7240 2565 for booking enquiries.
