Excellent. Think this place must be under new management. Service was brilliant, food perfect. So much improved since I last visited. I would definitely recommend the restaurant now. Keep up the good work.

Formerly a grand house, The Oystercatcher near Littlehampton takes pride in its amazing location, close to the beach and surrounded by the lush countryside. Befitting of its pastoral situation, there is a distinctive thatched roof, a grand fireplace and impressive portraits. Your food can be savoured from the pretty beer garden, the hearth, or in the cosy booth in the pub.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Oystercatcher menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Oystercatcher ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

In a remote and tranquil location, The Oystercatcher Climping is only 6 minutes’ drive from Littlehampton.

    Excellent evening.service very good well looked after and staff very friendly. Both enjoyed our meals, my sea bass was melt in the mouth accompanying veg superb. My sons fish and chips also excellent. We enjoyed our desserts, though I found my melba mess had overmuch cream. My son sampled the carrot cheesecake, and although he did enjoy it he found it a bid stodgy..These though wereminor details as it was an excellent evening.

    I booked and payed for my wife ( who is a palliative care cancer patient ) and her friend to have lunch, i requested a quiet table for them, on her return she commented that the table, the service, and the food where excellent , so it was money well spent , and i shall visit with her very soon, many thanks to the staff for looking after them both for me , regards Barry.

    Lovely restaurant and generally very nice food. Only one complaint - the roast pork was not roast pork it was salty, therefore it was possibly gammon. There is a big difference between ordering roast pork or ordering gammon, so maybe the menu should have said gammon. The waitress didn't seem to know the difference between pork and gammon. We were offered a fresh meal with another meat on, but declined as the rest of the meal had been eaten so it didn't seem worth it. Apart from that the food was lovely.

    Fast service, lovely food, but sadly a number of things on the menu weren't available when we went.

    We enjoyed our dining experience. The staff were friendly and efficient, the service quick and the food overall good although the steak in the pie was tough.

    Service was very slow. Food overcooked. Ordered Mash for Grandson but chips arrived. He didn't want to make a fuss so kept chips.

    We arrived at the correct time of 6.45 greeted promptly and seated with menus. And told that our drinks order would be taken soon which took far longer than normal as did the arrival of the drinks, we waited again for our meal order to be taken only to find that the burger s which two of our party asked for were not available an alternative was found and we waited a very long time for our meals - ( all three courses) . My daughter in law sent her burger back she went to the bar as no staff were around to assist and finally her meal was obtained and was enjoyed, as were all our meals, however a very long time ensued before our puds were finally given and again we waited a long time before we could settle the bill. Finally leaving the oyster catcher pub 3 hours later, which was most upsetting for my constitution as I have Parkinson's and do have to take medication regularly and not too late in having meals before retiring.
    I would like to point out that we do not normally have this trouble and often book at this sort of time and are served promptly and we get out in an hour and half and so to bed as the doctor ordered. So this complaint I hope is a one off due to lack of staff !??

    We held a family Sunday lunch for 25 following our daughter's Christening, and it was fabulous. We ordered food in advance and it was served to all 25 of us at the same time, steaming hot and delicious. The Oystercatcher couldn't have been more accommodating for our party. Many thanks. Would highly recommend.
