Caroline and Kevin Clarke work super hard to maintain Oysters's position as the first choice in Strabane, and have done so since they opened their doors back in 2007. Head chef Joe McFadden brings a lot of visual emphasis to his work, so the plates are painterly and full of surprises – lemon-spiced chicken leg; pork and mushroom casserole in Yorkshire pud; herb-crusted cod with marinara sauce; rose water panna cotta. In keeping with a great Northern Ireland tradition that has – almost – died out, Oysters offers a High Tea menu with simpler food – roast chicken breast; home-made beef burger; chicken penne pasta; beer-battered fish and chips – and there is also a very thoughtful menu for children under 12, with lovely teats such as Toad in the Hole and seafood pie. Oysters is notable also for a smart selection of good wines and for really terrific value for money, evident in all the menus they offer. Oysters provides a great service to Strabane, and the town is lucky to have such a dedicated team looking after them.
