Havering and Essex with an Alternative Twist!

Quaglino’s, London.

The partner in crime and I were invited to try the new 1929 Menu at Quaglino’s and we were certainly spoiled rotten!

The Hutch Club 1929 menu, which includes six West Mersea Rock Oysters and a glass of champagne to commemorate when Quaglino’s first opened its doors to a beautiful, decadent society crowd in 1929.

This July, they are hiding a South Sea Ronirose pearl worth £2,000 in an oyster for one lucky diner to find. This takes inspiration from Barbara Cartland, who once found a pearl in her oyster while dining in the 1930s!!  How lucky was she?!

Sadly we didn’t find the pearl but the food was out of this world, and certainly made up for it!


The six oysters were served with shallot vinegar that was divine, and being my first oyster experience I was a little nervous!  After the first mouthful the nerves were gone, and I soon devoured all the oysters!  My partner in crime was practically licking the shells clean he liked them so much!

Second course was the Hutch Crab & Lobster Burger, which I would put in my top 3 burgers of all time!  I have never tried Lobster either, and I enjoyed this so much!  The chips were perfectly cooked and the sauce was delicious.2010_10151709105818815_1214408555_n

I will certainly be returning with my parents who are serious seafood lovers!  What a great meal we had!

    Its a small world! I’m a chef at the victory in west mersea, we are located directly opposite the west mersea oyster bar! I agree the oysters are divine, we get a fresh delivery in almost every day, glad you had a nice meal!
