William’s Food Hall & Oyster Bar
Sitting pretty in the heart of Nailsworth is William’s Food Hall & Oyster Bar. It is an award-winning delicatessen and restaurant, which has received critical acclaim from the likes of Rick Stein. The restaurant specialises in seafood, and the menu changes daily to accommodate the day’s catch. Diners can expect to find freshly shucked oysters, whole Dover sole, Cornish lobsters and crabs, and dishes such as Catalan fish stew with chorizo and samphire adorning the menu, alongside non-fish options like slow-roasted pork belly. Adjacent to the restaurant is the Oyster Bar, which boasts a more informal vibe and is the place to be for fresh shellfish. The restaurant is open for lunch Monday to Saturday and for dinner every Friday evening and the first Saturday of each month. For those looking to recreate their meal at home, the food hall offers a wonderful selection of fish and seafood, cheese, charcuterie and terrines, in addition to freshly cooked meals to take away.
