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 chilli dipping sauce, or tempura of soft shell crab with chilli, coriander, spring onion and sea salt.
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 with a good selection of fine wine. We do not have a corkage or service charge. As well dining at 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 and we will freshly prepare and have it ready, so all you have to do is pick it up and enjoy!
Monday & Tuesday: 10:30am-9pm
