As J Sheekey is preceded by a rarefied reputation there may be no need for introduction, but we will do our best. One of the grande dames of London theatreland (joined by its Caprice Holdings sister The Ivy), J Sheekey has been patronised by London's elite for over one hundred years. The recipe for such longevity? Providing some of the freshest seafood in the capital prepared in the same way that it has been for fifty years probably figures into it! The J Sheekey brand carries all of the sturdiness expected in a hometown staple. With an Art Deco design featuring smoky mirrors, orange wall sconces and monochrome photos of the moviestars of yesteryear, it's obvious that the dining room is steeped in tradition, and the same applies to the food. British classics will be served replete with flavour. Originally an oyster bar, the current premises is still one of the premiere spots to sup on the shellfish, however, dishes such as the Sheekey's fish pie have also stood the test of time and even become iconic. If you're still hungry following your main, there's a hearty selection of desserts and British cheeses to make sure you leave fully sated.
