Went to this Beefeater and was very impressed with the surroundings, the staff and the quality and choice of the food on offer. Whilst it is not a cheap place to eat, neither is it excessively expensive. The staff made us feel very welcome and extremely comfortable and made time to make you feel special. The food we had was... More

At an ideal location on the river orwell this could be a great restaurant. Giving it a try after a long break having had a couple of dreadful meals. The outside as other reports support is in need of repair and appears uncared for not a good welcome. The parking is ample and they have a captive client group from... More

We've often been to this restaurant, but today when approaching it we thought it may have closed. The outside looks neglected and the windows were grubby. We were hungry and trusted that we would get a decent meal. Chose the festive deal of starters & turkey dinner. Starters were fresh and tasty but stingy portions. 2 tiny Wafer thin slices... More

I visited the Oyster Reach with friends - I was reluctant as the last meal I had there wasn't good but the new menu seems to have drastically improved what's on offer - very tasty and worth going again

Not the first visit to the Oyster Reach, a pub/eatery popular with 'Boaties', but worthy this time of a review. Eight of us visited this popular eating venue on the evening of the 5th November. Not busy probably because people were out 'Fireworking' . Staff were very attentive from the outset, orders taken quickly and not too long a wait... More

My family and I go to the Oyster Reach on a regular basis. My favourite meal is the BBQ ribs with chunky chips but I also enjoy a beautifully cooked steak as well. Highly recommend the Oyster Reach for service, food and prices.

Was really enjoying my meal till I found a dark hair on the plate. Told our blond waitress who said ' good job it wasn't a blond one'! And that was it !!!!
