My wife and I visited on a Monday evening and found the food to be great and the service attentive without being overbearing. We'll definitely be back. Top tip: try the masala nuts!

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

We have been here a number of times and on each occasion we have had a lovely meal served by polite, attentive staff. Whatever you order you will not be disappointed but the fish dishes are particularly good. I would say, price wise, it's probably mid range but for the quality of the food that is served, it's good value... More

Food was excellent, people keep mentioning the price but it is priced right for the quality of the food. Great ambiance, nicely decorated. Staff is efficient. Food came out quick and we were all served at the same time. Would come again.
