Description: Happy New Year. Yes we are back from our winter break. We will reopen on the 10th. February at 11am. We look forward to seeing all our old customers & also , we hope lots of new customers… Check out our website for daily opening times, as until Easter we open usually just the weekends due to the weather still being a little cold. Linda & I are delicate souls & hate getting cold...

Once again a stroll along the seafront as the sun was shining we stopped and had a large pot of whelks which were lovely and fresh & my partner had the fresh oysters with home made lime & chilli sauce.
It is always a pleasure to visit as the food is well presented & is spotlessly clean.
They are a lovely couple who advised us about all there homemade sauces .

Back to my childhood of family holidays on blackpool prom. Yet we was in Brighton. Eating superb lobster and crayfish they have an array of condiments some are homemade so I was told. Nice touch. Service with a smile and they know so much about the produce. We will be back.

Located right along the promenade of Brighton Beach is the Brighton Shellfish and Oyster Bar, one cannot miss it with a crowd gathered in front of this seafood bar. The bar serves clams, shrimps, and octopus and of course oysters, shucked as ordered, what can be fresher than this. Although there was a small crowd of eager tourists in front of the bar, it was calm and everybody behind the counter was carrying on in an efficient and friendly manner. Lo and behold, the bar has a sticker declaring it has been Tripadvisor reviewed. All senses filled, felt the breeze, smelled the sea and the oyster thrilled the palate, experience uploaded in my pleasant memory bank and walked away very happy.
