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

Temporarily Closed

Richard Haward's Oysters have made the heart breaking decision to close our online shop temporarily. We were hoping to still be able to operate online but our courier service is struggling to cope with the demands of their customers and we cannot guarantee next day delivery as they too have been hit with staff shortages because of Covid-19. We will of course keep you updated on our social media platforms and any orders placed will be honoured, we will get them to you however we can so you will not be disappointed or let down. 

As a small business, this was a tough call to make, but we're remaining positive and hopeful that we will see you on the other side! Borough Market remains open for takeaway only. 

The team wish you all well and stay safe x

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.
