Deptford Market Yard has welcomed another culinary legend, except this one is somewhat of a master in the fruits of the sea. Chef Steve McClarty is serving some pretty unforgettable seafood for London's Southeast, Sharkbait & Swim knows exactly how to get your evening off to a swimming start.

There's no holding back at this venue. The iconic arches of Deptford Yard welcome diners into a thoroughly friendly, gastropub setup that simply lives and breathes warm British hospitality. Their courtyard is the main attraction. Housed in the Deptford Yard's shared outdoor space, it's always buzzing with passers-by and the other venues that call the Yard home. While away the endless summer evenings here or head inside for a cosier vibe during the winter months.

And if you think that seafood is limited to the classic fish and chips and seafood chowder, prepare for Sharkbait to cast the blinkers wide open. Deep dive into some really special sharing plates like crispy chilli whitebait, chalk stream trout ceviche and Cornwall's famous mussels with cauliflower kimchi and honey. Never afraid to create new flavours, Sharkbait is creating the favourites of tomorrow. After all, who can resist a dozen West Mersea oysters with a glass of fizz?

For those who want to see what else seafood has to offer, this restaurant is the perfect bait. It's what some might call a perfect catch...
