The change from a fine diner to a smokehouse was brave as this had a fantastic reputation with innovative, faultless food and great service. However, times change and commercially the new-style may appeal to a wider set of diners. Seating was well laid out and...More

We visited yesterday for a non-traditional Sunday lunch, although you could still have a traditional three course Sunday roast. We opted for their new menu. The nachos were the best I've ever had and the salsa was yummy.

Hi - as the Oyster and Chop House can't accommodate you have you thought of trying La Casa Mia in the High Street. we have had a private function in one of the upstairs rooms.

Response from Jeff M | Property representative |
The kitchen closes at 2pm, so all orders must be made by 2pm.
My husband is a coeliac and needs a gluten and wheat free meal. Can you accommodate? Would we need to notify in advance?

We are extremely excited to offer authentic slow-cooked smoked meats, done properly in our in-house smoker, guaranteed to arrive fresh on your table. As well as great steaks, burgers and sandwiches. The freshest Lobsters and Seafood are also on the menu alongside Mac'n'Cheese to die for. We aim to cater for all, providing amazing value for money party menus and even a kiddie menu. We offer an extensive wine list and a fine selection of alcoholic drinks including plenty of cocktails, draft beer, and bottomless fizzy drinks.
