This reminded me a bit of Middleton's in Annapolis, MD; but twice the price. Six oyster shooters and a glass of champers for nearly £20. We just had nibbles but £4.50 for a small plate chips (fries) is very dear. And of course, there's the...More

They vary but do not include shellfish, so they told me, it is the best fish pie ever in my view, the "sauce" is divine!

In the heart of Covent Garden, J Sheekey is a fish and seafood restaurant offering the finest fish, oysters, shellfish and other fruits de mer. Discreetly tucked away on St Martin's Court between Charing Cross Road and St Martin's Lane, J Sheekey is a stone's throw from many of the West End's theatres, the cinemas of Leicester Square and vibrant quarters of Covent Garden and Soho. The Royal Opera House and Coliseum, Palace Theatre, Donmar Warehouse, Wyndham's, Duke of York and Noel Coward Theatres are close by, making the restaurant perfect for pre and post theatre dining. All fish is responsibly caught from sustainable sources.
