About this restaurant
From the moment you are ushered through the doors by the top-hat wearing attendant, J Sheekey's restaurant impresses you. Fish is their speciality, but Sheekey's also provide vegetarian and vegan menus as well. In 1896 a seafood market stall-holder, Josef Sheekey, was granted permission from Lord Salisbury to serve fish and seafood in his new building development in St Martin's Court. Upon the condition that he supplied meals to his lordship's private post-theatre dinner parties, J. Sheekey, the restaurant, was born. Originally a small oyster bar, the restaurant grew in size and reputation through the 1950s and 1960s, as it embraced the adjoining properties and attracted the discerning fashionable diners of the day. The restaurant was subsequently owned by the Scott's Group until 1993 when it declined into bankruptcy and disrepair. It was rescued and relaunched by Caprice Holdings in 1998 and is now considered as one of London’s finest fish restaurants. The menu at J Sheekey is extensive and the freshness and quality of all ingredients is second to none. The adjoining oyster bar is a fabulous space too, with a beautiful horseshoe shaped bar serving the finest champagne and oysters as well as a variety of fruits de mer. J Sheekey provides a faultless restaurant dining experience which makes it one of the most popular London restaurants, so booking a table well in advance is always advised.
