Do your dishes contain eggs? (for anaphylactic customers)

Some of our dishes may contain egg. Your server can advise you of alternative options.

Do your dishes contain raw egg or fish? (for pregnant women)

As we are an oyster bar, many of our menu items consist of raw food. This can include seafood, egg and meat. It is advised if you are pregnant that you avoid these foods. We have many other options available.

Do you have coeliac-safe menu alternatives?

All of our oysters are naturally gluten free. We have many GF options available, however there still may be very slight traces present, as quite a lot of bread is handled in our serving area.
