Living in the mountains of Austria there are a few things we miss from England. Marmite, curries and fish and chips. Marmite we can import, curries I can cook but good fish and chips is hard to make at home. Thankfully, when visiting family in Braintree we can call in to Oysters. The fish and chips offered by Oysters is... More

Fancied fish and chips on Saturday, heard good reviews about Oysters, so we decided to try the restaurant. WOW what great fish and chips best I have had in a long time and extremely good value as well. Only down side would like to have bread and butter with it. Not a roll traditional bread and butter, But this was... More

I never eat fish a chips anymore even though I love it! Had family over from italy so wanted to feed them something traditional and English, took a chance with oysters from the reviews and it was delicious. Perfectly cooked fish and chips and massive portions, nothing more that needs to be said! :)

All fancied fish and chips, 3x cod, 2x chips, 3x gherkins 3x onions, 1 x savaloy RANK..... Fish stank to high heaven, chips dry and old, batter was just soggy with no crispness whatsoever, savaloy was like leather. We gave the lot to our dogs. I rang to complain but they just said they would give me a refund next... More

Fron the outside looks a bit downmarket because of garish coloured ads and graphics. The little restaurant is however quite atmospheric, reminiscent of 1970s French bistro. AAA fish and chips, with polite and attentive service. Licensed. You can't judge a book by its cover, so if in Braintree, this is the place, just by Sainsbury's and the Baptist Chapel, for... More

You really can't go wrong here. I've been coming to this restaurant for more than 20 years and the quality remains the same - top-notch. Enormous servings, light, crunchy batter, oodles of chips and mushy peas, all at a very reasonable price. There aren't actually many places where you can sit in to eat fish and chips in Braintree, so... More
