We sat in the restaurant area to eat, the food was good and served on plates, as you would expect, to me the restaurant area itself had a cheap feel to it but the good food made up for it. Staff seem nice enough, could of been cleaner overall but we had a good meal.

Read some fantastic reviews on this place so my expectations were high. Sadly my own experience was no more than average, but better than other F & C shops in town. Rock was a little over cooked and chips a little under done, was just ok really, this was early sat eve so not like I called in at 10... More

I've eaten here too many times I've lost count. It's hard to find a decent fish and chip shop I'm just glad Braintree has one! Best fish in Braintree with very friendly staff who remember there regulars and en what they order. Have I really been there that much? I will keep going back.

I've had fish and chips from Oysters many times in the past. I've always enjoyed their cod but don't like their chips that much. However I know many people who do enjoy their food, so I would recommend as we all have different tastes and I can't fault them otherwise.

Simpley the best Fish and Chips in Essex. If your looking for excellent value combines with fresh fish then look no futher. They also do amazing kebabs and burgers too!

Freshly cooked fish, massive portions of chips, makes this the best in Braintree, nothing else comes near it, no grease just good food. The Cod white and moist, haddock excellent, skate top notch.
