The Oyster & Fish House is arguably the most picturesque spot in Dorset to enjoy locally sourced fish and seafood. A large terrace wraps around the informal, light and airy dining room with floor to ceiling windows offering a view to every guest. Our new deck sits to the side of the restaurant with tables and counter tops to enjoy our freshly caught fish and seafood.

Please note that our outdoor Deck has very limited cover. Feel free to bring your own blankets! We can no longer give our own blankets out due to Covid. Dogs are very welcome outdoors.

Our menu changes twice a day depending on what the fishermen have brought us so please note that our menu online is simply a seasonal sample menu of what you can expect when dining with us.

We are open 5 days a week – closed Sunday night and all day Monday and Tuesday.

HIX Art blue neon
Art, vintage lighting, kitchenalia


Mark Hix’s name is synonymous with food and art so it’s perhaps no surprise to see Mark opening his own ‘Hix Art Pop Up’ on the site of The Oyster & Fish House this year.

While the restaurant is closed on a Monday and Tuesday until the half term, Mark has decided to bring collections of art, vintage lighting, furniture and ‘kitchenalia’ to the restaurant for customers to purchase.
