Visited on a Wednesday night….. beautiful weather and sat outside. Service was great. The food amazing. Oysters specials on Wednesday were great value. We had a dozen oysters each and they were excellent. There were 4 of us for our main meal we had squid, which was really tender, a tasting plate, salad and chips. All excellent. Worth a visit.

Wow. Where to begin. What started out as a rough day with my dog running away, turned into a pearler; as I indulged in a late afternoon 'Oyster feast'...... which left me feeling quite nippy, as after all, Oysters are an aphrodisiac. The staff were knowledgable, and the food was beautiful. I was fortunate to attend this venue on a... More

This place is by far my favourite, took my grandparents for a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed every minute of it.

Oysters where fresh and beer was cold. would... More

Bought my elderly grandparents to the Oyster bar for lunch and we were treated like scum. The waitress was beyond rude. Nastily spoke to my grandma when she asked a question, sour look on her face and didn't even clean up a spill she caused on the floor. I had to clean it up after another customer nearly fell. As...

Really enjoy it here. We decided to sit outside for once, now the "No Smoking" laws have arrived. It was relaxing to sit and enjoy each others company whilst overlooking the water. We decided on our usual fare of a cheese platter and the chorizo platter accompanied with a lovely bottle of cold Chenin Blanc. From the greeting on ordering... More

Arrived at the Oyster Bay in the recent horrible weather - and a warm welcome greeted us. We had the grazing plate plus an extra half dozen oysters. It was absolutely delicious. Nice friendly staff.
