My husband and I were staying at Burgh Island, as a celebration of my 40th birthday and something I had dreamt of for years. We had booked to have lunch at the Oyster Shack.
We were shown to an inside table beside what looked to be a vast children’s birthday party and incredibly noisy.
We asked to sit outside but it was overrun with unsupervised children running around everywhere and dogs off the lead in the outside seating area.
The service was poor; we had to ask twice for glasses to go with the bottle of water they had given us and we never saw the same waiter/waitress twice.
I had two oysters, scallops and gravadlax.
On returning to the hotel, I developed severe stomach pains and was violently sick.
Thank you Oyster Shack for ruining my dream weekend away, as I felt ill for the rest of the evening and not able to have my dinner or join in the dance.
We will not be returning to the Oyster Shack and neither can we repeat our ‘once in a lifetime’ weekend away.
