I recently visited with some friends and was really looking forward to it as I’d heard so much about the place.
The whole experience was nothing but a disappointment!!
Staters we had a beef tortellini from the specials board, chicken liver parfait and garlic bread with cheese. The beef tortellini had large pieces of gristle in it, the parfait was an off grey colour and tasted off and the bread it was served with was hard and dry.
Thankfully our main courses of gammon, steak and chicken pappardelle were nice and tasty.
Service was very slow in the restaurant, staff had no idea what was in the dishes, drinks took a long time and we enquired about ice cream flavours and got no answer. The restaurant wasn’t even that busy, there was only our table and another 2 tables in.
We gave feedback to staff abut the starters and the duty manager came over to say thank you for the feedback but there was no more he could do about it, he did not apologise and also continued to charge us for the parfait which was inedible.
We refused to pay for this as it was inedible, such a shame that he had not made the gesture of removing it off the bill.
All in all, would I return or recommend.......no I wouldn’t. Staff at the Oyster Catcher need to remember that local customers are important and we were certainly not made to feel that way.

Great building, stylish decor and very friendly staff. We enjoyed ourselves but some aspects let it down unfortunately. The temperature in the restaurant was volcanic! The heating was so high everyone dining seemed to be suffering. The food was ok but not great value for money £6.50 for 4 pieces of asparagus for starters, although egg with it was fabulous. Seafood linguine was really creamy, too creamy. Mash with pork too creamy. Everything a bit creamy and beige.

Would have stayed for pudding but service slow so took 2 hours for starters and mains and temperature in the room so hot we just wanted out!

Could be great, if they sort some minor details out.

The menu has changed for the worse and the service was poor, sort it out please because your venue deserves better - like it used to be

I go to the Oyster catcher quite often as it is close to where I live. The setting is beautiful but the quality of the food varies every time. The menu used to be more adventurous and varied but now it is typical pub grub which can be a bit disappointing at times and is not always well cooked. The staff are very pleasant so it's a shame the food doesn't always come up to scratch

Called in for a meal mid -week and easily got a table. The waiter was friendly and showed us to our table and explained about the "specials" The food was excellent -the best we had tasted in a long time. It was well cooked and beautifully presented. I had fish of the day served with a lemon sauce which just made the dish. Asparagus and the roasted new potatoes served with it I thoroughly enjoyed. My husband had fillet steak- again excellently cooked, served with the best chips he'd tasted in a long time.We followed this with two delicious panna cottas served with two home made short bread biscuits. The atmosphere was relaxing and the staff attentive. We will be back!
