J Sheekey - Fine Fish

Fabulously fresh fish food - bring your credit card - enjoy!

Location: 28-32 St Martins Court, WC2N 4AL

Description: If you are a fan of seafood then look no further...apart from Padstow - than J Sheekey not a stone's throw from Leicester Square.

This restaurant/pub is at the higher end of the price bracket - but what you lose in the pocket - you gain on the palette and the experience of a gastronomic treat.

With a doorman on hand to guide you inside, you might not realise what is going to happen (from outside it does look rather sinister), but fear not, with a selection of tables and cosiness, all you'll find is a great atmosphere, fabulously fresh fish, and fine fodder.

In 1896 a seafood market stall-holder, Josef Sheekey, was granted permission from Lord Salisbury to serve fish and seafood in his new building development in St Martinís Court. Upon the condition that he supplied meals to his lordship's private post-theatre dinner parties, J. Sheekey, the restaurant, was born.

Originally a small oyster bar, the restaurant grew in size and reputation through the 1950s and 1960s, as it embraced the adjoining properties and attracted the discerning fashionable diners of the day. The restaurant was subsequently owned by the Scottís Group until 1993 when it declined into bankruptcy and disrepair. It was rescued and relaunched by Caprice Holdings in 1998.
