Overview | Gallery | Historical info | Public transport | Map

The small pub area is these days dwarfed by the steak-grill and motel. In 2017 all "Oyster Reach" signage was removed and the whole operation re-branded "Beefeater", thought it still retains the bar with two hand-pumps.

Note

Oyster beds were once quite common along the river estuary and a popular local food - whilst the earlier name could be a reference to the coat of arms of Sir Edmund Coke (1552-1633) an eminent Elizabeathan lawyer and former speaker in the House of Commons and local land-owner.
