Welcome to Bobby’s Oysters, the only place in the world for a complete selection of world class oysters from the East Anglian coast. Located in London’s Old Spitalfields Market and launched by the young Essex-born oysterman Bobby Groves in 2017.
Led by Bobby – the current frontman of Chiltern Firehouse’s expert oyster offering, Bobby’s Oysters source and serve a variety of oysters on the half shell from Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex with wine and beer pairings from Maldon and Dedham Vale, Essex.
A high-quality and affordable oyster experience, Bobby’s market stall will encourage all to celebrate the great British oyster.
“I want to push past the stereotypes and expose the other side of Essex – the wonderful rural, wild lowlands of the East coast where I grew up. We have such brilliant produce yet so often what’s on our doorstep is largely replaced by oysters from further afield - Ireland, France usually. For me it’s about rediscovering the seafood from the shores of our homeland, and enjoying oysters how they were eaten in London historically. I also couldn't think of anywhere better to launch that in Old Spitalfields Market - just a stone’s throw from Liverpool Street Station which serves the East Anglian counties.” Bobby Groves, founder & master oyster shucker.
Open five days a week (Tuesday – Saturday), Bobby and his small team of specialist oyster shuckers will look to extend the offering in early 2018, with smoked fish, beer and wine from the East Anglian counties.
