I had read about this place while researching the trip, but didn't remember where it was, and we just stumbled upon it while touring.....fortunately at lunch time. It was an SOB to find a parking spot.....single track rode onto a steep, muddy drive, with cars...More

Unless you hate fresh seafood, this place is great. I’ve eaten here a few times over the years and always love it. I don’t think seafood comes any fresher. And seafood sure doesn’t come with a better view anywhere else. Perfect conclusion to a Talisker...More

The oyster shed is a quirky little place for a quick lunch. Although it's takeaway there are tables and seats outside . It is open all year, and the Oyster man will teach you how to shuck oysters.. They have a great range of smoked...More

I love oysters. Absolutely love them. So, when I saw a restaurant called the oyster shack, I had to go. The place is interesting. You order at a counter, get a buzzer, and then pick up your food a few minutes later at a little...More

The oysters come from right below the shed. Can't get much fresher than that!
