    Half price oysters and £5 cocktails? We’re there. From 6.30-7.30 Wednesday-Friday and 5.30-6.30 on Saturdays, find a seat at The Richmond and team your Cumbrae oyster with a bargain tipple – you might just end up staying for dinner.

  • Galley, Angel

    105-106 Upper St, N1 1QN

    This place makes our list for having some of the most varied types of oyster we’ve seen. Forget your plain old fresh oyster, Galley’s oyster tasting menu offers them marinated in soy and ginger, tempura fried and baked with chorizo. Take your pick.

  • J Sheekey

    Covent Garden, 28-32 St Martin’s Ct, WC2N 4AL

    If you’re after a classic oyster tasting experience with a bit of old-world glamour, look no further than
    J Sheekey. Pull up a stool at their iconic oyster bar and order them by the six or the dozen, with a side of caviar if you’re feeling flush.

  • Oyster Boy

    Broadway and Columbia Markets

    Want your oysters to go? Pay a visit to Broadway Market’s Oyster Boy on Saturdays, or catch him at Columbia Road on Sundays. Plus, if you want to host your own bivalve party, the Oyster Boy is available to hire.

  • Chiltern Firehouse

    1 Chiltern St, Marylebone, W1U 7PA

    If you’re after the full raw seafood experience, head to the raw bar at Nuno Mendes’ Chiltern Firehouse. Alongside oysters, you can feast on seasonal sea goodies like trout, tuna and prawns.
