We visited and enjoyed not just fresh oysters but friendly chat with owner. He showed us how to open the oysters and gave us extra . Will definitely return but next time we’ll sample hot food in the little seating area. Great selection of seafood.

If you want to find out how tomatoes should really taste like, go south Italy. Bananas visit Costa Rica. Oysters - this is the place, absolute gem. Picked in the morning by the very man you see behind the counter.

Dogs are allowed in the picnic area and there are dog bowls and water available. Im afraid we cannot allow dogs in the main shop as we have live and cooked seafood about. Thanks Paul The Oysterman
