Oystermen are oyster experts!

Our oystermen are experts at serving freshly shucked oysters and while doing that, go for that big smile from their customers. You will find that our professional oystermen are passionate about oysters, passionate about people, and passionate about bringing them together.

Our Oystertainment® service is the number 1 oyster catering service in the United Kingdom and the original mobile raw oyster bar in London.

Experience the original mobile raw oyster bar & Oystermen

Over the past 20 years we have provided oyster catering at many different occasions, from weddings and corporate events to private parties. Red Oyster is the inventor  of the mobile raw oyster bar. Why do we call it a mobile raw oyster bar? It’s because we like to personally interact with guests and connect with people. We like to make them happy by opening fresh oysters on the spot, especially for them.

Guests enjoy themselves whilst being “oystertained” at the same time.  This way, our oystershuckers can develop a real interaction with the people they share their oysters with – connecting with them and delight them. Simply put, with the mobile raw bar, we bring oysters straight to your guests, so that our professional oystertainers can share their enthusiasm and passion for oysters.

Red Oyster’s Oystertainers fill the room with energy, enthusiasm, and craftsmanship. And, of course, they can tell you everything about the delicious oysters that they select and shuck just for you.

It’s a mobile raw oyster bar with a unique experience. Our oystershuckers will walk around at your party, entertain your guests, and open some fresh oysters on the spot. They will tell the guests some great oyster anecdotes and serve the oysters with the condiments you choose, or we can make suggestions for you. With our oyster catering service, we shuck oysters on the spot, at any location you choose, be it a party at your house, a wedding, a bar mitzvah, a corporate event, or the annual summer outing. There’s no event that is out of bounds with a mobile oystertainer!

Frequently Asked Questions

The number of oysters you should get for your party depends on 3 factors:
1. the Oystertaining time you’d like
2. the number of guests
3. the location
On average we take into account 2 to 3 oysters per person. Depending on the input we get from you above, we make a suitable quotation which we would be happy to discuss with you, to make sure it meets your expectations.  

Our Oystertainers open oysters on the spot as they move around the room, so there is no need to provide a table! They will bring the oysters in a cooler, and a custom Red Oyster backpack with all their equipment. All you need to provide is a small space to store the cooler and the backpack, and a bin for the empty shells. We’ll do the rest!

We prefer to serve Jersey and Maldon oysters, because we have trusting relationships with the  oyster farmers who grow these oysters. Our oyster farmers have family-owned businesses, who have often been farming oysters for generations.
