“Amazing shellfish from an oyster shack” which is very basic and “as authentic as you could get!” – so “take your own wine, bread and butter for a rustic delight” that’s “always a fun” experience. There’s a “good range of hot and cold seafood”, and they now have a licence so you can buy drinks if you forget to BYO.

“The queuing and lack of finesse in customer care (plus the uncomfortable shed setting) are all part of the joy” at this rough-and-ready veteran spot, turning out “amazing fresh fish”… er, and that’s about it, so you may want to take advantage of the BYO bread and bottle policy (though they do now have a licence too).

“A must try”“take your own bread and wine (glasses are provided)” if you want to eat some of “the best, freshest seafood you’ll find anywhere, in this somewhat off-putting wooden shed”. “The setting is basic but you always have to queue to get in, and no wonder”.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
