Wheelers Oyster Bar

8 High Street, Whitstable, Kent, CT5 1BQ
There's been a shop selling oysters on this site since the mid-1850's, and during the 1950's expanded into a small National chain.

Nowadays this tiny building holds a small bar counter with stools selling oysters, winkles by the bowl, smoked salmon sandwiches and the like.

A little dining room to the rear offers proper sit-down meals, offering mainly local seafood. Starters include the likes of 'Crab & Prawn Bearnaise Tartlet with Salad'; 'Pan-fried Crab Cake with a Mache & Walnut Salad or of course Oysters, including Natives in season.

Perhaps follow with the likes of 'Baked Skate Wing in a Grainy Mustard Crust'; 'Fillet of Sea Bass with a Risotto Cake and Squid in Tempura Batter'; 'Caramelised Scallops on Cauliflower and Parmesan Risotto' or 'Pot-roasted Halibut Gratin with a Citrus & Crab Hollandaise'.

If you still have room, finish with the likes of 'Lemon Posset' & 'Strawberry Crème Brulée'.

Remember to bring your own wine.
