SquareMeal Review of Wheelers Oyster Bar

Bronze Award

Founded in 1856, Wheelers is not only a Whitstable institution, but its striking pink and blue facade is also a local landmark. Following some renovation, you can now pitch up at the famous – but tiny – ‘oyster parlour’ or plump for the revamped ‘seafood bar’. Either way, expect a raft of superbly fresh dishes fashioned from daily supplies off the local boats – from oysters and seafood platters to ‘browsing’ plates such as spice-crusted squid with sweet chilli dressing or tempura of soft-shell crab with coriander, spring onion and sea salt. More substantial combos of, say, pan-fried gilthead bream with crushed Mediterranean potatoes and warm salad niçoise or lobster lasagne with leek and white crab ragoût also go down well, ahead of desserts such as pear tarte Tatin with blue-cheese ice cream. Wheelers is unlicensed but you can BYO with no corkage (there’s an off-licence across the road). Note: cash only – no credit cards
