Lovely.

Fantastic food and lovely friendly staff, would highly recommend. Had two different functions there, the staff was most helpful letting us change things on the buffet menu, even getting a veggie meal for one of the guests at no extra charge.

Being married to an accountant, you'll know January is work, work, work - not usual for us to go out for tea but foot down, time for a break - Oyster and Otter is always a favourite - this visit was simply excellent. Hubby had devilled crab served with Yorkshire puddings followed by Morecambe Bay plaice - apparently excellent !!!... More

We had lunch three times from work since November, including once in December for Christmas lunch and yesterday for a leaving lunch and both times I was blown away by the welcome and service we received not to mention the fantastic food!! The quality of the food was fantastic, maybe slightly larger portions could justify the price of some of... More

I really do like this restaurant and have never reviewed before. I went here the second week in January with a colleague it was exceptionally quiet which is not usual but given it was just after Christmas etc that I think is to be expected. The fires were blazing and it felt warm and the greeting by the manager was... More

As part of the seafood pub company the high standards from the other partner restaurants can be expected here. Very welcoming, friendly and helpful staff. A lovely welcome from them all. Fine tasting food, subtle tastes and great recommendations on wine to match and amplify the dishes.

After a brilliant works Christmas meal we decided to go to O&O again for my birthday. I wish we hadn't bothered! The whole place was really cold with customers eating lunch in their coats. The service was poor - we only found out they had a specials menu when the table next to us were given the choices. Our meals... More

We have been eating at this restaurant since it opened, but we have come to the conclusion that standards aren't as good these days. Whilst service, as we have come to expect, was cheery and very friendly, portions are getting smaller and smaller whilst prices continue upwards. My daughter had a tiny "rack" of ribs whereas you used to get... More

Fantastic food with even better staff - knew the menu, specials and beers which is always a good sign. I love fusion style food and this didn't disappoint in any way. One of the nicest main courses I have eaten in a long time - flank steak with sweet potato, ginger, soy and greens. Really good dish. WOuld highly recommend... More

Maybe because of the busy Christmas period, or maybe a change in management, but we didn't enjoy our experience as much this time. We have often visited the O&O for family celebrations, but the 19th Dec was a little disappointing, no warm greeting, table was poorly positioned next to a rowdy office outing, drinks service slow - lacked the usual...

We thoroughly enjoyed our family meal at the Oyster & Otter but the service was a little confused and one of our party didn't receive her starter with the rest of us. Otherwise no complaints and the staff were so friendly and good natured with the children. Good food and a nice atmosphere. X
