The Butley Orford Oysterage

JAY RAYNER
THE OBSERVER
What the Oysterage lacks in frills it more than makes up for with its flavoursome, no-nonsense cooking.

Fresh plump oysters straight from our beds at Butley Creek Butley Creek - Home to our oyster beds and smokehouses since 1959 Smoked Mackerel - Gorgeous golden mackerel, smoked to enhance their richness Lobster Pots - Freshly caught off the coast and served in our restaurant and shop Our Restaurant - The Butley Orford Oysterage; famous for its oysters, smoked fish and shellfish Our Shop - Visit us at the Quay for our delicious range of products and freshly caught fish It’s Smoking - Smoked over oak logs to produce a sweet, rich flavour Gone Fishing - Daily fishing trips bring home seasonal catches of local fish, lobster and crab

A simple and uncomplicated approach best defines our restaurant, but it’s the great oysters, smoked delicacies, fresh local fish and shellfish that keep our customers coming back again and again.

The atmosphere here is relaxed and informal, marble cafe tables, metal framed chairs and chalked up specials are all part of the charm. But the reason this little restaurant, tucked away on the Market Square at Orford, is so popular is the superb quality of the fresh seafood.

Start with a half dozen plump Butley oysters, some home-made smoked salmon pate or maybe a plate of griddled prawns, hot and smoky and oozing garlic butter. To follow you can't go wrong with the rich and creamy fish pie, skate with a brown butter sauce or the catch of the day, freshly prepared and served with new potatoes and a salad.

We look forward to welcoming you at the Oysterage soon.
