Mail Order Mersea Oysters | Buy Freshest Oysters Online | Next Day Delivery

New Opening Times

We are now going to be open Tuesday - Saturday at Borough Market. Our staff will now be able to shuck oysters for you, but they MUST NOT be eaten at the stand. 


Our courier service is stretched and we want to provide the best service. For the time being, we will only be delivering nationwide on Thursdays and Fridays. We will be monitoring the situation closely as we like to offer our customers a full and prompt service. 

In these stretched times though there needs to be a bit more leeway so your order should arrive on the day specified or at the latest the day after. Our boxes are packed with ice packs in temperature controlled boxes and our oysters have 5-7 days shelf life so it won’t be a problem for them if delivery time stretches to 48 hours. 

As a small business, we cannot deliver the orders ourselves as we get orders from all over the UK. We use APC, if you are due a delivery and would like to find out where it is, please get in touch with them on 01255 870710.

Thank you for shopping with Richard Haward's Oysters.

I have been coming for while now and they really deserve a 5 star rating!! The oysters are incredibly fresh (shucked upon order), delicious and very affordable.

Visiting Borough Market early one morning to beat the crowds, stumbled upon Richard Haward's Oyster Bar. My goodness, we are so glad we did.

From Sea to Plate

We have 14 acres of oyster layings in the creeks surrounding West Mersea in Essex.

The core to cultivating oysters continues to be about respecting nature and honouring the history of this unique industry.

Our passion is to deliver something truly wonderful: Not simply an oyster, but a food story and the remarkable history of the people producing them.
