To celebrate our 30th Birthday this year, we have launched our brand new 18 course

Taster Menu. 

If you choose to take the ride, you'll be treated to an 18 course extravaganza of both classic and modern cuisine that celebrates the very special relationship The Oyster Shack and the big blue sea has to offer.


The Taster Menu is available for lunch or dinner and is for a minimum of two people.


As it is an exclusive foodie experience, we limit the number of bookings to one per service so pre-ordering this menu is essential.

To avoid disappointment, when booking online you will need to request the Taster Menu in the remarks box on the "confirm booking" screen. 

If you call to book, then please confirm with The Shack booking crew that you are pre-ordering the Taster Menu.


We will check our bookings and contact you to confirm that we are able to meet your request, this is in addition to our normal booking confirmation.

To celebrate, we're asking you to share

your Shack memories with us over the years!

 Email with a memory and get a free glass of prosecco with your next booking with us.

We’ve also got some surprises up our sleeves for the year ahead; in the meantime, don’t forget to wish us "Happy Birthday”.


we're 30

this year!




The Oyster Shackin' Wagon has closed for Autumn/Winter!!!

Throughout the spring and summer, our gorgeous girl has been working hard so you could pop in for Oysters and a drink served straight from the van with no need to book.

We laid out some new handcrafted tables and chairs with a view into the valley, so you could stop on by and take a load off after your long walk down the estuary.

We're putting the Shackin' Wagon to bed now for the rest of the year however she may be open at The Shack on special occasions.




The Shackin' Wagon is available to hire for you to make those special occasions even more special with unlimited Oysters!

We are located in Bigbury, the nearest towns being Kingsbridge and Modbury and we're between the two.

Potter along the tidal road past the Avon Estuary if the tide is right, or meander along the winding Devon roads if the water’s high and you will find The Shack tucked into the valley under a bright orange sail on Stake’s Hill.


If the tide is high you will need to take the B3392 and as you drive into St. Ann’s Chapel take a left by the village shop and follow the signs for The Oyster Shack.  Then continue down the hill until you find us on the left hand side.  If the tide is out, then you can take the tidal road off Timbers roundabout at Aveton Gifford.


Just remember to check the tide times here before you drive.
