Floor-to-ceiling windows in The Oyster Store provide views over the terrace. A starter of mussels in a silky chilli, coconut and lemongrass cream was wonderfully light, followed by an impressive Shellfish platter of oysters, mussels, crevettes, crab and half a lobster.

This is the most perfect place. Decor, food, service everything about it is first class. If you can, come and try it. You will not be disappointed.

The restaurant has recently been re-furbished to a very high standard, we received excellent service and attention to detail, with great food as well....brilliant!

New owners, excellent re-furb, food the very best in flavour and presentation. We had lunch and were very impressed. If you want quality then head here. It’s so good I almost want to keep it a secret! Lovely, attentive staff too.
