Oystermen

After a 10 month residency in South Kensington, the oyster experts have found a permanent home in Covent Garden. The Seafood Bar & Kitchen has opened on Henrietta Street with fresh oysters and seafood from all corners of the British Isles.

The Seafood Bar & Kitchen has opened on Henrietta Street.

Nothing quite screams the good life like tucking into champagne and oysters for a tenner, which you’ll now be able to do. Smart seafood fans will definitely want to time at least part of their visit to fall within ‘Bubbles n’ Oysters’ Happy Hour from 3-5pm when you’re able to get six oysters and a glass of Crémant du Bourgogne fizz for an exceptionally reasonable £10.

Not only can you expect oysters done every which way, from freshly-shucked in the half-shell to buffalo-barbecued and Cajun-battered but there’s plenty on offer outside of the oysters such as; mussels, south coast crab, shellfish platters, daily fresh fish specials and home-cured, smoked and pickled fish like Whiskey and Oak Smoked Trout. Alongside a specially curated wine list and an oyster stout brewed in collaboration with Canopy Beer Co, this place ticks all the boxes.

Co-founder Matt Lovell said: “The launch of The Oystermen Seafood Bar & Kitchen is the next natural step in delivering our fun, friendly and fresh concept to the wider London audience. We have spent a lot of time sourcing brilliant products and ingredients through independent suppliers, and also in selecting the team that will deliver only the best consistently.”

Co-founder Rob Hampton added: “The feedback and footfall at our events, and most notably our residency in ‘South Kensington-on –Sea’, has given us the extra confidence in being able to translate our vision into reality. As a team, we are more than excited to take the brand and business to the next level and relish the opportunity to continue growing and developing in such a strong market. Bring on ‘Covent Garden-on-Sea’!”
