At Massimo Restaurant & Oyster Bar, they’re celebrating with a game of ‘Pearl Roulette’ every Thursday, Friday and Saturday in September. Look for a real pearl before slurping down your oyster!

Bentley’s is hosting masterclasses throughout September where resident expert Mr Oyster Boy will share his 30 years of experience with oyster enthusiasts. Guests will be introduced to his favourite British and Irish oysters and taught how to shuck them safely. This Sunday (15th Sept), the restaurant’s Native Oyster Sunday Lunch will give diners the chance to meet the chefs, tour the kitchen and indulge in oysters (fresh and tempura-style) and their legendary dry aged beef.

Italian seafood restaurant Pescatori has set up a market-style oyster stall on Charlotte Street so that locals can sample them there or ‘on the go’. It’s serving Jersey Rock oysters, Scottish Natives and West Mersey rock oysters to enjoy with the traditional tabasco, lemon and black pepper.

For a truly indulgent evening, head for Boisdale of Belgravia on September 16th for their Dom Perignon vs Krug Champagne and oyster tasting. If the £60 price tag is out of your budget, you can snack on oysters at the bars at their Bishopsgate and Canary Wharf restaurants.

At Wright Brothers buzzy Soho seafood bar, diners ordering six oysters in September will receive a complimentary glass of Vaporetto Prosecco. Wright Bros co-founder Robin Hancock will be sharing his oyster knowledge with staff at the Borough Market restaurant on September 16th at 4pm. It’s open to all, so why not pop in and then stay for dinner?

Hungry for more? You can indulge your passion for oysters at Green’s in St James’s, The Oyster Shed, Hix Oyster & Chophouse, Le Café Anglais, and Bibendum.
