Welcome to Wheelers Oyster Bar the oldest restaurant in the town. You can come and dine in our famous, but small Oyster Parlour, or at our Seafood Bar. We have a small menu that changes seasonally: 6 starters, 6 main courses and 6 desserts. Running alongside the a la carte menu we have a browsing menu which allows you to pick and choose from a variety of seafood designing platters or from a selection of light dishes; such as spicy crusted squid with sweet chili dipping sauce, or tempura of soft shell crab with chili, coriander, spring onion and sea salt. The restaurant has 4 sittings starting at 1pm, 3pm, 5pm and last orders at 7.30pm, except on Sundays where last orders are at 7pm.
Wheelers does not have a alcohol license so you can bring your own wine to complement the food and this can be done by browsing over our menus on the website ahead of your visit. If you do not wish to bring alcohol, there is an Off Licence opposite us, or alternatively you can saunter along to the quaint Harbour Street, where you will find another small outlet serving a selection of good wine. We do not have a corkage or service charge.
As well dining as Wheelers, you can also buy our delicious homemade quiches, tartlets, sandwiches, design your own seafood platter or choose from a wide selection of seafood to take away. If you are coming to Whitstable for a day on the beach or a picnic on Tankerton slopes, why not pre-order your seafood by phoning through to us when we will freshly prepare and have it ready, so all you have to do is pick it up and enjoy!
Today Wheelers is run by lady called Delia Fitt after she inherited the business from her parents and she is now partnered by Mark Stubbs, the chef who has a small team of chefs producing modern British European food for their very intimate Oyster Parlour and Seafood Bar
Wheelers also offers a beautiful beach hut which has been hand built, is completely child friendly and very different from the other beach huts in Whitstable. It is surrounded by decking with its own garden situated behind and a barbeque raring to go. The beach hut is on Whitstable seafront, a ‘stones throw’ from the Neptune pub, just two minutes walk away from the restaurant or town centre and is available to hire on a daily, weekly or weekend basis.
Hiring rates for the beach hut:
(We require a £100 deposit that will be refunded after an inspection has been done to make sure there is no damage to the property)
Mark Stubbs, the Head Chef also runs Shoreline School of Cookery (on Wednesdays) in the Wheelers kitchen (see the Cookery School tab for more information).
Mark has had numerous televisions appearances including:
