Pleasant and friendly staff; good service and great tasting fish and chips. The only negative comment to make is that I think the Cod tasted more like Haddock than Cod because, it's not chunky and fluffy like Cod.

Compared to other ‘ordinary folks’ traditional English meals such as ‘Bangers & Mash’, ‘Kate & Sydney Pie’, and so on, a simple old fashioned ‘Cod, Chips & Mushy Peas’ at Oysters is hard to beat in terms of quality, quantity, and presentation – not to mention the friendly warm hearted welcome from delightful staff.

There are a few hippies in town but I always make my way to Oysters. Certainly the best in town and the couple that run it are really friendly. I'll be surprised if you find better.

Was really looking forward to our fish and chips, ordered and had to wait which was great as I knew it was going to be freshly cooked for us! When we got home all excited for our fish and chips unfortunately both our fish and chips were undercooked very disappointed

I was taken here by my brother, for take away fish and chips, I was happy to see that all fish is cooked to order, large portions, ( a large cod is enough for two people). The staff are very friendly, with many other items on the menu, you will not be disapointed. There is a sit down restaurant as... More
