A charming local pub and restaurant, The Oyster Smack Inn is situated in the rather romantic seaside town of Burnham-on-Crouch. Built back in the 1800s The Oyster Smack Inn is full of period character, setting the scene for a wonderful dining experience courtesy of owners Claire and Trevor Howell. The first port of call for stylish, relaxed dining, The Oyster Smack Inn has a modern, clean décor in coastal shades with wood floors and handmade furnishings, a stove burning during cooler months. Chef-Patron Trevor chooses the finest seasonal food for his menu, taking advantage of the Inn’s proximity to the coast by sourcing superb seafood for modern British food with a touch of elegance. Pub favourites are enjoyed at The Oyster Smack Inn at lunchtime while the evening sees things take a more refined turn. Whether business or pleasure, a languorous dinner or a quick daytime snack the team at The Oyster Smack Inn ensure that every guest is treated as an individual.
