Colchester Oyster Fishery

Fantastic British Oysters & Seafood are alive and well, a few weeks ago we enjoyed a fantastic trip organised by Gordon Cartwright from Visionary Dining.  The day involved a long drive, a good foodie chat followed on arrival with a tour of the fishery, a trip out oyster dredging and a simple but sumptuous seafood lunch at Colchester Oyster Fishery.

The weather was kind to us, we experienced a fantastic sunset whilst out dredging and we enjoyed fantastic hospitality and sampled some truly fantastic British seafood, razor clams, rock & native oysters, scallops, crab & lobster….

In the simple board room above the fishery overlooking the Pyefleet Creek we enjoyed the freshest seafood with what has to be the best taste and quality I have ever experienced, great company and we learnt a thing or two about great British seafood…
