Celebrating British Oysters

We will be kicking off the native oyster season with the official Hix Oyster Celebration, an all-day event honouring the life and times of the oyster on the Deck of The Oyster & Fish House.

We are delighted to be hosting the event in collaboration with the Folk Festival weekend, with live music played throughout the day.

Mark will host a series of talks and tastings exploring the heritage of the great British mollusc – joined by like-minded oyster growers and experts Nigel Bloxham (Crab House Café, Billy Winters, Portland Oysters) and Pete Miles (Dorset Oysters). He will also be joined by James McCarthy of Red Panda and East Kitchen + Bar who will serve Asian-style dressed oysters. Guests will discover oysters from around the South West of England and enjoy them paired with an array of local drinks.
