In September 2014 Brady's opened a new bar with views over the river. The bar provides drinks for the restaurant but also has table seating (no reservations) and serves shellfish raw, cured, and cooked. The Time Out Food and Drink Editors
In its new premises by the waterfront just south of Wandsworth Bridge, Brady’s has created a bright, airy, maritime-themed space both indoors and out. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out over patio decking, and it just needs a wheeling seagull or two to transport diners to the seaside.
The fish on offer is good quality: simply grilled sea bream had soft, succulent flesh, crisp skin and was superbly fresh. Battered cod was firm and flaky with the lightest, crunchiest of batters. Starters – beetroot-dressed smoked salmon, prawn cocktail in a sundae glass, served with brown bread and butter – proved solid, retro fare. Chips are uniform in cut and far from thrice-cooked, but fluffy and crunchy all the same. Sauces – an entire collection of creamy, fresh-herbed jarfuls are presented at each table – are a plus.
Puds run from crumbles to light, milky ices. This new incarnation is spanking clean and bright, with a welcoming bar (try a pint of Shepherd Neame Spitfire), and good value at all levels.
