Oyster & Otter - Impressive

Only one disabled parking space and a long way to walk to entrance. Ok underfoot if fine but when raining it'll be very slippy, as it's all decking. Looks nice but it's lethal. Ramp up on left side of restaurant. Two of us went. Fab service, as we went on speck so hadn't booked. It must get very... read more

I literally could not fault anything on my last visit here. The food was great, the service was great, and the whole look and feel of the resteraunt made me feel very comfortable. I would also add that the food was reasonably priced when compared with its quality. I would particularly recommend one of the fish dishes as that seems... More

Visited with a patty of 17. Service was good - we hadn't pre-ordered but they dealt with us efficiently. I had the crab sausage rolls, these were tiny and very over-priced at £6.95 for a starter - I probably got a teaspoon of crab meat in mine. The fish pie however was very good.

I enjoyed this pub for its food, good wine and nice decor. The service was friendly. I would return for a group meal with friends or as a couple.

Went with my mum and sister to this place a few weeks ago. It was clean, had friendly staff, cosy atmosphere, and the food was great. I had the chicken and ham pie and by jingo it was the best pie I'd ever tasted for a long time. The sauce was creamy, but not heavy, just amazing. The meat pieces... More

We visited for lunch on our wedding anniversary with our kids. From the moment we arrived to the moment we departed the staff went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time. The fish goujons for starters were the highlight and we wish we'd have stuck with fish for mains (even though the steak and pulled pork burger... More

We had previously been regular customers to the Oyster & Otter but some months ago we had a terrible meal with poor service, we were given a free meal later after complaining to Oysters head office and this was just terrible to so we haven't been back until recently, well they certainly made up for it, an excellent meal with...

Have had some amazing food here in the past and this was my 'go to' restaurant for ages when taking friends out for dinner but haven't been for several months after a couple of disappointing meals. That said, I'd still try again as the service I've had in the past was good and the fish dishes have been lovely. I've... More

We stopped here on our way home from a walk with the dog. Weather was great so we sat outside and had an unplanned meal out. My husband had the steak. I was spoilt for choice so many good specials, in the end with the advice of a very helpful waiter I opted for a mackerel starter turned into a... More
