Now in its ninth decade, Bentley’s first opened its doors in 1916 in the same beautiful old Victorian building it occupies today. From the outset this famous oyster bar and grill, captured the vibrant mood of a metropolis about to embrace the roaring twenties.
Offered the chance to restore the iconic Bentley’s to its former glory when it came up for sale in 2005, Chef Richard Corrigan embraced the challenge. Following a sensitive refurbishment, Bentley’s once again opened its doors to great critical acclaim serving oysters, fish and seafood in much the same way it has since 1916.

We got the tuna and the scallop ceviche, and they were both fresh and flavorful. For our entrees we got the baked seafood dish and the fish and chips. The fish in the fish and chips was not bad; it was tender...more
This is a cozy restaurant with a very good service and a pretty outdoor patio.
The food was also very good and high quality.
Location is also good, few steps away from Piccadilly Circus.more
Bentleys is a place made for 5 star reviews! Simple as that really. Owner/operated by the esteemed Richard Corrigan this place is a celebration of all that it is to be an oyster bar.
A friends birthday was a great excuse to pop in here a week weeks ago on a Saturday, to start we made out was in and were ushered to the beautiful bar area. A well made g&t in hand we took in the surroundings and...more

I started out with incredible gougères filled with oozing cheese. Their bread basket...more
