The Oyster Smack Inn
With an unusual name that harks back to the traditional ﬁshing boats that were used to carry seafood to shore via River Crouch, The Oyster Smack Inn is a hub of wonderfully fresh culinary delights and the ideal place to rest your weary sea legs. Changing to suit the seasons, the menu offers a variety of sumptuous fare, but its quality is never in doubt. Feast on half a dozen Maldon oysters, served in shallot vinegar, or lightly battered with tartare sauce. Alternatively you might try pan-fried sea bass ﬁllets accompanied by new potatoes, roast celeriac and celeriac purée. For those who prefer to keep their feet on terra ﬁrma, the slow-roasted belly of Burnham pork makes for an equally mouth-watering alternative. Why not extend your stay by spending a night or two in one of The Oyster Smack’s ten beautifully appointed and ever so welcoming rooms?
