Pearly Queen

An oyster bar and seafood restaurant in Spitalfields, from Cornerstone's Tom Brown.

Taking his cue from Pearly Queen’s location, Tom takes inspirationn from the East End and its lively history, heritage and traditions of fish cookery. Pearly Queen’s menu features oysters & shellfish and inventive takes on fish recipes with a cocktail menu, curated by Max Venning (Three Sheets) where classic cocktails have a coastal take. 

The 60-cover restaurant is spread across two floors. Upstairs echos an East End boozer with a bar offering counter seating with the afternoon sun primed to stream through the floor to ceiling windows. Downstairs, plush banquettes, secret cubbies, pearlescent and gold accenting beckon late-night indulgence.
