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.
