The Oystermen @ South Kensington


The Oystermen Seafood Bar & Kitchen is now firmly ensconced on the first floor of The Samper in South Kensington.

Think whole crab, pick your own shellfish platters, UK charcuterie from Canon & Canon, cheese carefully selected from the cellars of Buchanan's, and pickled and cured snacks a plenty to complement our own fine wine offerings.

If you are looking for an excuse to get out of the office that little bit earlier, look no further! Come join us at our daily Happy Hour(s) running from 4pm-6pm for half a dozen of their favourite oysters and a glass of bubbly, all for a mere £10.
