Excellent F&C, but why does it take so long when there's a very obvious menu? At least cook sufficient chips in advance. Waiting 15 minutes is ridiculous.

Had takeaway from Oysters fish bar today for the first time and was not disappointed. Chips were good they were not greasy and had a good flavour. We had a steak and kidney and mince beef pie both were very hot and as you would expect from Pukka pies good quality. Cost was average at £9.20. Would definitely return.

Couldn't fault the service or food. Everybody was friendly & polite - eager to please. Food was fabulous, huge portions, well cooked & presented. It's great to be able to support a local business x

Came here with my daughter and my wife's niece from Brasil so she could experience our traditional dish of fish and chips. Wouldn't consider bringing her to anywhere else in Braintree. As always the fish was fresh and perfectly cooked. Always more than enough chips and the curry sauce was divine. My daughter went for the chicken nuggets and chips... More

Oysters is a traditional "fish and chips" establishment catering for both the st down and take away trade. In the last few weeks I have eaten there several times, each time ordering the fish and chips deal which includes a pot of tea. The fish is always fresh and beautifully cooked and is a pleasure to eat. The flesh is... More

Feeling quite hungry and a ‘bit shaky’ I called in at Oyster’s late afternoon on 14th October hoping for a quick light meal before driving back to London. I asked if I could have Cod, Salad, and Mushy Peas instead of Chips. I was attended to by delightful friendly staff. Re my request to supplant the chips with mushy peas... More

The food here is brilliant, I don't think we've ever had a bad meal in here. A good menu, warm and friendly staff and the choice to eat in or take away. Definitely worth a visit!

Enjoyed a first rate fish and chip meal in Oysters. Went for their daily special - the choice of a good sized cod fillet or rock eel, great pile of chips and either salad or mushy peas, all washed down with a nice pot of tea or coffee. Good value from a welcoming family (originally from sunny Portugal) run restaurant... More
