Atlantic Prawns

Our prawns come from the north Atlantic where the ocean is very cold .

This gives them time to grow at a much slower pace & produces a great flavour.

This is a fantastic mix of different shellfish, including octopus, king prawns & lots more.

Dressed Crab

What a great treat.

Our fresh Devon dressed crabs are pasteurised to ensure they are supplied fresh and can also be frozen.

How posh is this? Anchovy wrapped around an olive.

A great tasty snack with a glass of wine or just with a walk along the prom.

Fresh Mussels

Nice soft delicate shellfish. Delicious with our Homemade Shallot vinegar


Rollmops are a firm favourite here. A nice herring fillet stuffed with sweet onion.

Jellied Eels

Our jellied eels are well known for the excellent quality .

Five succulent pieces

Also available in large bowls for parties, weddings etc.


We provide what we think are the best cockles from Leigh on Sea, Essex.
They are always full of flavour & a great seaside favourite.

Marinated Octopus

A great favourite with all of our visitors.

Linda cooks the Octopus right here at work. Marinated  with red wine vinegar , amongst other herbs & flavours .

 The kids also love them

Homemade Crab & Prawn Mayonnaise

Made by Linda on the premises from fresh crab, oceansticks & mayo with a topping of fresh Atlantic prawns.

Fresh Lobster Pot

Mainly a summer item, as we like to offer them when trade is brisk.

We don’t want it hanging around to ensure it is offered fresh at all times.

Its a little different, but so are we.

 Smoked salmon on a shellfish bar ?

Why not ?

Fresh Squid

A nice little nibble of succulent squid.

Try some of our Chilli & garlic sauce with this one.

These anchovies are full of flavour & need no additions.

A tasty treat , similar to prawns, but meatier & sweeter

Welcome to The Brighton Shellfish & Oyster Bar
I hope we have titilated your taste buds with the great variety we offer.

Gone are the days of the old style shellfish bar.

As times have changed, so have we, with a temperature controlled environment to assure you of top quality shellfish at all times . Some things however remain the same; a wide range of different shellfish and plenty of smiles all round.

The 21st century has arrived 

Welcome to The Brighton Shellfish & Oyster Bar

Please come & see us, directions are on our Visit Us page

The Brighton Shellfish & Oyster Bar is probably the oldest takeaway shellfish bar in Brighton. The bar began life some 35 plus years ago with a table on the beach, then a gazebo was added (unless the wind blew it away), until finally it moved into its current site on the beach in Brighton’s historic Fishing Quarter, which is where you will still find us today.

We hold the 5 star Award from Brighton and Hove city council for food hygiene and cleanliness and are well reported on Trip advisor.
