The Norfolk Oystermen specialise in providing delicious, fresh Oysters at all sorts of events across the UK. Whether you’re getting married, reaching another milestone, or organising a work related bash, we are your Oyster experts. We can either operate alone as your sole caterer, or we can fit in seamlessly with other catering companies, as we bring all of our own equipment and only need a minimal amount of space. We also provide seafood platters of all sizes, using the best quality local produce from the North Norfolk Coast, where crab, lobster, and much more are to be found in abundance.
Our roaming shuckers can mingle amongst your guests, opening and serving oysters in front of their very eyes, or we can take a more backseat role by positioning ourselves behind our famous Victorian Oyster and Champagne Bar. This marvel acts as our 'base camp' and is one of a kind. Guests tend to gravitate towards it in admiration, and from here we can serve up to a dozen oysters at a time on an eco friendly wooden plate, and perhaps a chilled glass of bubbles or a cocktail too.
Our dashing Oystermen (and women) always raise a smile, providing an ice breaker, a talking point, and a photo opportunity, as well as some very tasty Oysters.
We serve a truly delicious selection of homemade dressings to go with our seafood, so apart from the old classics such as shallot vinaigrette, zingy lemon wedges and trusty tabasco, your guests will love orange and fresh chilli, cromer crab and grapefruit, strawberry and black pepper and mango and lime, to name just a few. All of our dressings are designed to tantalise the taste buds!
Most importantly, we work to your time frame, so whether you’d like us at your event for just 1 hour, or all day, all night, and into the early hours, your wish is our command. We are there to make your life easier and help your party run smoothly.
