Visited the Oyster and Otter the other day and although I am a very picky eater, there was a variety of options I could choose from!!! My partner will eat anything so chose a steak. It was cooked to perfection! I do not like fish, so decided to choose a cheese pie. It was delicious! I think the chef was called Moustafa.

The staff were so great and helpful, service with a smile was an understatement! Liz, Hollie & Kris were all fantastic. All in all a great place to come, regardless of the weather! Would recommend to everyone wanting a nice meal and a beverage.

Called today after a long and hot walk along the Leeds and Liverpool canal.This was my first time here although been many years ago to the Horden Rake ( a pub previously ) The decor is nice and relaxing but now to why I called Pilsner Urqeul great and correct glasses. The menu is a bit confusing re catch of the day as it is by price not descriptive but the scallops and Gambia’s were superb.I or we will be back.

Couple visiting from burton upon trent and i cannot believe my experience. The girls were amazing they knew all about the menu even options for my celiac partner, after double checking with holly the manager she came and spoke to us and gave us all the options and answered all of our questions. All the girls made a really big effort even though we were dining outside emma told us all about her recent exams whilst holly told us all about her move from chorlton. So refreshing to see such a young manager have so much control and awareness. Tall girl i think her name was milly was also very polite and constantly made sure we had no empty glasses on our table. We had the scallops special and the fish and chips which can be made gluten free! The otter is also in a lovely location and we have booked a weekend away in August and will be back visiting.

We visited here after a long walk along the canal and found it to be a little gem! We stopped for drinks but decided to get a bite to eat and it was lovely, the girls were great and welcomed us on an unusually quiet afternoon. Nothing was too much trouble even for my fussy eater of a friend who has peculiar demands when it comes to dining! Thanks to Emma, Sophie and Hollie for taking great care of us we will definitely be back!

Visited on a Saturday evening, with my wife and daughter, first time in approx eight months. Very busy and good atmosphere. shown direct to our table after being welcomed by member of management team. Food was very good, I had the sea bass in ginger and soya special , with our daughter having perfectly cooked fillet steak and my wife the fish and chip house special. Puddings were fine if unadventurous and the New Zealand Sauvignon just right at a reasonable price. Have seen some less flattering reviews on here of late, well, if there was a problem, I would say it is sorted if tonight is anything to go by, and we never heard nothing but positive sounds from other eaters.
