    Took ages to get seated, was then told no Prosecco, no burger’s and no pizzas. When we did receive our food was ver average. Unless something drastically changes we won’t be going back anytime soon.

    Service from Liz is always spot on. Always a smile and nothing is too much trouble. The food is good and well presented and arrives in a timely manner. A little noisy at times, but that is to be expected at peak/holiday times. The only criticism is that it can get quite warm inside which is a bit uncomfortable for the staff as well as the customer.

    I booked the table the usual way with 3 guests. Arrived just before 2 and was advised I wasn't on list and no tables available. I showed the Manager my booking and confirmation, she thought I must have been talking about somewhere else. There it was on my phone. She had a table in the back room, if we wanted to wait. We waited and 20 mins later our table was ready, good. One of my guests had the roast turkey, just one slice and lots of skin and fat. Overdone veg. We all had different and my lunch was just okay. Same with other guest just OK. We had our lunch at 3.30.arrived at 1.50 for 2 o clock. I use the Oyster Catcher all the time but didn't know the Manager. Emma is a lovely lady and helped us, but my guest refused to send the turkey back. All in all not the experience it should have been. In my opinion for what it's worth, the place was overbooked, many items had run out. We came away very unhappy.

    Lacking in atmosphere. Sad to see an unlit open fire at Christmas - a regrettable oversight. Food good but service lacking -would have appreciated desserts with coffee not afterwards.

    Excellent dining experience. Warm, friendly atmosphere generated by helpful professional staff. Service was smooth and just the right place. Good menu selection, food well presented. Nothing pretentious about this place; just excellent in every way.

    Liz our waitress was delightful; funny, warm and polite. The food was delicious although it did seem that the fish and chip portions were much smaller than on previous visits pre covid. I imagine this is due to the economical climate so understandable. Tasty though!

    Poor quality food matched by poor quality service. Disappointing but experience at the Oystercatcher is extremely variable ranging from very good to poor.

    The Oystercatcher was very unwelcoming - cold and totally lacking in ambience. Food was disappointing though service was reasonable. Would not recommend.

    We were not allowed to sit at the table we booked due apparently to a staff shortage. Within minutes however someone else was sitting at that very table!

    Very good food but disappointing that a number of items on the menu were unavailable. Service excellent from Emma K. and her colleague -as usual

    We went to the oystercatcher as we had been before and knew the food would be good, this visit was to celebrate our 60th wedding anniversary and were not disappointed.

    We sat at a table in the garden to take advantage of the weather. The food was great but service was mixed. Nevertheless, would definitely go again!
