Butley Orford Oysterage
Much of the fish and shellfish on display are caught by the family's own boats.
The river bed and oysterage
rights had always been privately owned and were conveyed to the Duchy early last century, which had since leased the rights to tenants.
Stay at the delightful Crown and Castle Hotel (tel: 01394 450205), which has a superb restaurant, or tuck in to seafood at the Butley Orford Oysterage
on Market Hill.
The Butley Orford Oysterage
, in the coastal village of Orford in Suffolk, is one such place - where the likes of salmon, trout, mackerel and even cod's roe have been smoked since the 1950s.
We've reached the Oysterage
Restaurant, which has the friendliness of a cafe and is one of the main reasons for coming here.
This famous oysterage
supplies two million oysters a year to London restaurants - at a price.
