Now over a hundred years old, the illustrious oyster bar is a highly popular, feel-good rendezvous, its canopied terrace a hot ticket for slithering-fresh fish and seafood on a balmy day. If you’re swerving the oyster route in, start with crispy squid or perhaps Cornish fish soup and continue with exemplary fish pie or luxurious lobster spaghetti. Prices lean toward West End scary, but ingredients are second to none, service slick and wines a superb bunch. Desserts stick to the classics – textbook crème brûlée or vanilla pannacotta with Yorkshire rhubarb, orange and gingerbread. A few meat options from the wood-fired grill keep carnivores onside.
