Description: Wiltons, established in 1742, has consistently enjoyed a reputation as the epitome of fine British dining in London. George William Wilton provided the finest oysters to the traders of London"s Haymarket. Today Wiltons continues that tradition and continues to serve the finest oysters, seafood and game. Wiltons combines a modern philosophy on service with all that is traditionally British to create the perfect dining experience.

Should you have any special requests i.e birthday cakes or champagne, please advise Wiltons immediately upon making your reservation. We politely ask that gentlemen wear long sleeved shirts and long trousers, no sportswear or open toed sandals.

10/10 for atmosphere and food. If money is just an irritation in your life this is home from home.

“British classic at its best”
Reviewed September 8, 2010

The ultimate restaurant in London for fine dining & impeccable service. You might even spot the other member of parliament or some old aristocracy. Oysters, fish and game are a must. Place & sole highly recommendable. I am going there whenever I am in London as otherwise I have missed something important! However on the pricier side.
They even lately promote their home delivery and picnic hampers. Recular e-mail infos once you have registred on their web-site.

“Disappointing for somewhere with such heritage”
Reviewed July 18, 2010

I'd heard a lot about this place, so when one of my agencies asked to take me out, I chose here. It's in the heart of old fashioned London (St James), surrounded by tailors and gentlemen's clubs. It is all wood-panelled and very formal and stuffy, which can be fun, but it was overdone here. They forced my guest from Vietnam to wear a jacket as all gentlemen have to wear a jacket to dine. Food was pretty average, but bloody expensive, however my dessert, the summer pudding was excellent. We asked for oysters but they claimed to sell them from September onwards... a ridiculous guide from the days before refrigeration.

They try and play up the 'Ohhh, Look how establishment English we are", but all the waiters are foreign from Poland and Eastern Europe and sometimes they did not understand our requests.

Hugely disappointing. Go to Rules instead.
