about us

We are The Oystercatcher and we are passionate about what we do: fresh, seasonal fish and seafood in the heart of Chorlton. 


An intimate neighbourhood restaurant perfect for every day and special occasions, our mission is to share with the local community the delicious, healthy delights of the sea. 


Our varied, wholesome menu is sustainable where possible, serving both well-loved British classics, chargrilled choices and dishes influenced by other seafood-loving nations. Vegetarian and meat options always available.

Our menus change weekly, dependant on what

is both fresh and seasonal. The sample menus

are subject to change.

we allocate the following table times, during peak times

so please arrive on time.


1 - 2 guests, 90 minutes

3 - 4 guests, 1 hour 45 minutes

5+ guests, 2 hours 


If you make a booking and need to cancel or amend it PLEASE give us as much
notice as possible - last minute cancelations and no shows have a big effect
on a small independent restaurant like ours. Thank you.
