went here with friends - you have to know its there as the place is at the end of an industrial area of the port, past loads of wood stores - but well worth seeking out!!

Food was good and reasonably priced. For an Oyster Bar, they knew very little about the one kind of oyster they had. But, they were fantastic, and two days later I've not had a stomach grumble, which is more than I can say for many places. I think I just have high expectations of establishments with 'oyster' in the name.... More

A very welcome return visit to the oyster bar. Another wonderful meal served by friendly attentive staff. The menu was very impressive, so the decision making process was very difficult! We were not disappointed, all food was of an exceptionally high standard, with the fish cooked to perfection. The rhubarb and ginger ice cream was an absolute delight. Will definitely... More

Second time I have visited and food is excellent, but very disappointed they had no oysters !!! Or bread and didn't really seem that apologetic about it which for an oyster bar I would say is pretty piss poor

We went for a special birthday last year. Have tried again on a couple of occasions but unfortunately they don't cater for larger groups, which is a pity. The food is beautiful and expensive. Not a glamorous setting but it was well worth the trip

Wonderful meal! Delightful octopus salad and yummy smoked mackerel pate to start followed by generous roasted salmon salad and fish and chips. Friendly, attentive staff.
