The freshest, expertly-prepared oysters for restaurants and pubs

Our oyster openers or "shuckers" are some of the most experienced in the industry.

We've also teamed up with renowned oyster farming families in Port Stephens, to bring you what we think are the best Sydney Rock Oysters in NSW.

Offering various grades of oyster both opened and unopened, we deliver to Newcastle venues seven days a week.
