Nice place

First time I had stepped foot in this place since it changed from being a pub. I opted for a seafood ramen and the girlfriend had fish and chips. Mine was a very strange dish, kind of like a soup that didn't really taste of anything until I added the hot sauce that was placed on the table. Even... read more

This place was recommended from a good source & is such a shame as good quality pubs / eateries are very few in this area. Really nice refurbishment, very informal & relaxed in a good location. However food was just ordinary. The place is part of the Neaves (Fish suppliers to Lancaster) family, so to have just farmed salmon as... More

Visited the Oyster And Otter today with my wife for lunch. Now, we eat here quite regularly as it's very convenient to our home but great changes have taken place. Firstly a new menu has been put into place which is very good. Snappy and not overfilled. Secondly, the important part, we were met by Matt and Tom, all smiles... More

We visited the oyster and hotter on a Monday afternoon for a late lunch early dinner We were greeted by a waitress who quickly took our drinks order, invited to chose a table and the manager later came over to discuss the specials with us. For starters we ordered: - The dressed crab from the specials (although this had sold... More

Not a lover of sea food. Only seem to serve sea food. Was disappointed by the style of food. Wouldn't be going back again. Only been to the restaurant once.

Went here for a dinner date recently for my girlfriends birthday. The staff were all very polite and efficient. The meals came in good time after ordering and were of good size and tasted fantastic. Would definitely visit again

After much deliberation, I decided to book the oyster and otter as a venue for my daughters christening. From the word go, I knew it was the right decision. Everything went without a hitch. We practically had the entire restaurant available just for our party of guests and the staff even decorated the venue with our cake and balloons etc... More

Excellent service from start to finish, attentive all the way through. An interesting and exciting choice of dishes on the menu. Great if you want to experiment with flavours, although you do pay for it.

First time visitor to the Oyster & Otter, attracted by the glowing reviews on here of everyone having a great time. Unfortunately..... Just wanted a main, light dinner. Nothing too much and as the place is supposed to be good at seafood why not just go for good old fish and chips (regular size £10.50). The place was not too... More
