The Oyster & Otter
The Oyster & Otter is a neighbourhood pub and restaurant, ideal for diners and drinkers alike with plenty of room to spread out and relax over something suitably refreshing. Winner of a number of awards, including Great British Pub Awards Best Food Pub, Lancashire Life Restaurant of the Year and Food Awards Gastro Pub of the Year we mix the best ingredients with great personalities and atmospheric settings to create memorable experiences. Our seafaring heritage fuses with a timeless, pub charm to bring light and fresh seafood dishes and hearty, classic meat dishes to your table. And all enjoyed within a traditional pub setting finished with a modern twist.
We are especially passionate about seafood; it’s what Joycelyn, our founder, was brought up surrounded by; her father being a renowned fish-merchant and a family history in the fishing industry dating back to the 18thcentury. Naturally, this sees our food style lean towards light and fresh seafood dishes. That said, we all love the friendly informality of pubs, so British classics and hearty dishes have their place firmly on the menu. Just as important as the seafood specials, these comforting dishes are a must after a good walk with the dog or with friends, enjoyed sitting by one of our many open fires.
Our menu is written freshly every day, allowing us to make the most of whatever fish and seafood has just been landed alongside the best seasonal and regional produce the market has to offer. As you can see, with our signature seafood sitting alongside the British classics and creative world food, there should be something for everyone.On Sundays we add a choice of roasts with all the trimmings from our local with farmers during game season, you can be sure to find a bountiful selection.
If you’re looking to hold an event or celebration with us, we have set menus and buffets available or the option of a bespoke menu created just for you.
