Just Opened London . 16th April 2014

Just Opened London

Some Londoners may be very well acquainted with the institution that is Wilton’s on Jermyn Street. Having served up the freshest of oysters and most delicious of seafood since 1742, it’s fair to say the following is loyal. And now having visited ourselves, we can see why it’s been ...

Spear's

Wiltons' refurb is the pearl in its oyster Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name. Fortunately for London’s great and good, there’s always Wiltons, says William Sitwell. HOLDING BACK THE YEARS Early January, and as I walk through the smart and elegant streets...

The Telegraph

"You can tell the state of the economy by how many tables are taken at Wiltons," Michael Heseltine once quipped, thus exhibiting an aptitude for the off-the-cuff sound bite one wishes today’s sticking-to-the-script politicians could master. But while one may regret the Coalition’s a...

Hot Dinners

Wiltons re-opens with new oysters bar menu 30 January 2014 You've got to sit up and take notice when a press release breezily describes a restaurant as 'older than America'. The establishment in question is Wiltons in St James' - a place that began life back in 1742 - a full 34 years before the cr...

Zagat 2014 . 1st November 2013

Zagat 2014

Exuding the "traditional elegance" and "posh" ambience of a "gentleman's club", this "typically British" St. James's stalwart (operating on its site since 1742), serves "impeccably presented" dishes including "simply prepared" seafood and "great" game; "raising one small finger brings immediate atte...

Time Out . 21st September 2012

Time Out

If you want to glimpse a vanishing way of life (and have deep pockets), head for Wiltons. The cossetting service, the classic decor (muted colours and paintings that won't frighten the horses) and the sense of calm are perfect for anyone who finds the 21st century a bit much. It almost doesn't matte...

The Good Food Guide . 21st September 2012

The Good Food Guide

A moment’s respect: we were sad to hear of the death in January 2012 of Patrick Flaherty, Wiltons’ long-serving oyster bar tender, just as he was about to embark on a half-century season at this bastion of St James’ tradition. Wiltons has been looking after the great and good amon...

New York Times . 20th September 2012

New York Times

Clubbish in location, in looks and for the most part clubbish in clientele, wonderful Wilton's in fact affords a cheerful, courteous welcome to all who show up in properly sober clothes, ready to pay the sobering prices. The best English food (as opposed to the best food in England, which is so gran...

Square Meal . 20th September 2012

Square Meal

With a history of selling fish dating back to 1742, Wiltons is totally immune to the vagaries of fashion & fortune. Whatever the financial climate, there will always be takers for market-price lobster & Dover sole – so long as you’re dressed appropriately, in tie & jacket (with very deep...
