We visit the Oyster Bar regularly and have never been disappointed. Even when the place is packed service is prompt. The turnover ensures that their oysters are always fresh. If you like them natural, try the 'Oliver'; if cooked the 'Darleyfella' is the go. The 'Kilpatrick' tends to be a bit too heavy on the sauce.

Thank you for your review on our venue. we strive for excellent service at all times, no matter how busy we are.

You have very similar tastes to mine, I absolutely love the Oliver oysters!

next time you are in ask us to put a little less sauce on the Kilpatrick and see how you go!

thanks again!

We revisited The Oyster Bar and as the manager promised us we got extra green olives and we had another cheese instead of the blue cheese. The service was really warm and inviting.A perfect lunch. Relaxing and calming. Cannot wait to return.

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 Wednesday - which as it turns out is discount day (30% off all oysters)

Will 100% be returning.

Cameron.
