We love our local Brancaster oysters washed down with fizz, so much so we could feast on them all the days of summer. However, it is nice to pick one extra special evening to truly savour and celebrate our local oysters. That is exactly what we will be doing the evening of Friday 11th August at our annual Champagne and Oyster Festival. The setting could not be better, right at the edge of the marshes just yards from the oyster beds. Watch the highest tide of the season creep in over the tidal marsh whilst enjoying Richard Loose’s Brancaster Staithe oysters served 6 ways - shallot vinegar, tempura & sweet chili, mint, cucumber & strawberry, Bloody Mary, Tom Yum, nettle & mirin. Plus other foody delights such as samphire and cockles and smoked shell on prawns from our smokehouse at The Jolly Sailors.
We will be ‘shucking’ Brancaster Staithe oysters & ‘popping’ Hattingley British Fizz corks from 4pm through to sundown in our ‘pop-up oyster bar’ on the edge of the marsh.
