Oskars is open 7 days a week serving morning coffee and scones for the tired and weary. Our lunch menu is the best of both worlds - Carvery and specials as well as our specially designed A La Carte Menu. The Carvery includes roast of the day, market fresh fish, lasagne, Chicken Pepper sauce, Club Sandwiches, Paninnis, burgers, steaks and a lot more. The Evening menu offers a choice of 10 homemade burgers, steaks & steak sandwiches, bbq ribs, a fresh fish selection including our famous seafood pancake and salmon fishcakes. The Boards in the kitchen will also feature a number of daily specials. Food is something we love, so we want to do it right! SPORTING EVENTS: We love our Sport at Oskars and have dedicated our entire upper floor to it. We believe that if you love sport too, you should experience it like it's supposed to be - in glorious HD on two 12ft Screens, with stunning surround sound. However, if sport is not your bag, we also believe that it shouldn't be rammed down your throat. This is why downstairs you can enjoy a drink or some food, without having to listen to the many excitable commentaries. The best of both worlds - we hope!
