At the outset I wish to make clear that my wife and I have visited the Oyster & Otter several times and enjoyed the fare, albeit a little expensive. On the most recent occasion my wife and I took some friends visiting from South Africa, expecting to enjoy a specialist seafood restaurant but this was not to be. The waitress... More

We went for Sunday lunch. They have an offer on of 3 courses for £18.50 which we all had. Wife and daughter had the soup and said it was just ok but a bit thin. I had the Korean chicken and it was really tasty. We all had the roast beef, it was good but a thicker gravy and bigger... More

Had the lamb fillet with cumin and coriander curry, it was delicious and just the right sized portion. I'd like the recipe! My partner had the chicken ramen but wasn't keen but put that down to host taste and fussy pallet. I only have a couple of cons... Slightly on the dearer end of the scale and depending on where...

We had our Christmas Dinner here and it was a wonderful experience. It's often a risk to eat out on Christmas Day, but this certainly wasn't the case at the Oyster and Otter. It's easier to explain what didn't go wrong - we weren't rushed at all, despite there being several sittings, the food was delicious and plentiful and in... More

Herein many comments about the oyster and otter we decided to give it a go. What a place this is. Hidden away in a corner of Blackburn you wouldn't expect something so nice. The decor is modern, contemporary and warm. The food is first class. Presented beautifully including the soup. Piping hot and very flavoursome. And as I'm a big... More
