Up there with caviar and champagne, oysters are one of the ultimate luxury foods, even if they don’t actually look that appetising. Once shucked from their shells their succulent beige flesh and clear juice is delicate and delicious, a true taste of the ocean. Dorset oysters have a luscious, salty-sweet taste, perfect enjoyed raw or cooked. Priced per oyster.


We source only the finest local Dorset oysters. Depending on availability, that means fabulous Portland Pearl oysters grown just round the corner in the nutrient rich waters of the Fleet at Chesil Beach, or wonderful Poole Bay pacific oysters, cultivated and harvested by hand in the micro-tidal waters of Poole Harbour.

Of course, you can cook oysters, steaming them open like mussels and clams (it takes less than a minute), grilled with a topping or oven baked. They’re delicious breaded deep fried and a traditional ingredient in beef and oyster pie. Herbs to pair with oysters include parsley, fennel and thyme. Spices like ginger, star anise and chilli work well too.

But really, there’s only one way to enjoy them at their best: raw, shucked, with a squeeze of lemon, vinegar and chopped shallots or a dash of Tabasco depending on your preference. 

Best eaten immediately. 

Store in the fridge between 0ºC-5ºC, and eat within 3-4 days. 

Shucked oysters can be frozen, but must be cooked before eating. Eat within 3 months. Defrost in the fridge overnight. Do not refreeze.
