Another fabulous evening at The Oyster Smack. Eight of us and every single one of our starters, mains and desserts were spot on tonight. Great service too. Lovely atmosphere. Every one of us commented positively on our food. My skate was one of the best I've eaten in a long time.

There are plenty of tables and a dedicated area where you can sit and have drink before going to your table. The staff are friendly and...

Sounds sad, I know, but I was certainly not disappointed! I got in just as they were opening, but were more than welcoming to me, even without a...

We had our Christmas Meal here this year. There were 4 of us on the late sitting. For us this was the perfect time. It was as expected very busy, but we were welcomed by very helpful staff. Our meal was excellent and our table was out of the way of the bust staff. They were all so cheerful and...
