“Nice location thats all”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Overpriced drinks with very average food and service, for the money you can find so many more better places near by. The best thing about the place is having a drink outside if we ever get any sun.

“Poor quality food, very dissapointed”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

I visited the oystercatcher on the 6th of January for a family meal to celebrate my daughters birthday, The tables we were eventually shown to had food , empty crayon packs and serviettes strewn below, it was early in the day so not from a previous diner that day, we went and ordered and paid for our meals and the meals were delivered quite promptly, unfortunatley i had ordered the t bone steak that was described as the best steak ever, maybe at a different restaurant it may have been, i can honestly say it was the worst i have ever attempted to eat, it was cold and fatty, stringy, gristly, disgusting, the accompanying chips had also obviously been previously cooked and were cold and tasteless, the large flat mushroom was the size of a 10p coin, i would have liked to have seen a small flat mushroom,lol, the other diners meals arrived and after waiting and asking for cutlery as there wasnt any on the table they also said the food was cold and we all left very dissapointed, this is a shame as this is in a nice location, i dont know about the hungry horse, all i know is that we all left hungry and would have eaten a horse,, we wasted our hard earnedcash and would be unlikely to use this restaurant again
