Welcome to Buoy and Oyster, the independent restaurant that has been a proud part of Margate’s dining scene since 2015. We are passionate about showcasing top quality seafood and seasonal ingredients in a family-friendly, seaside setting. Whether you’re looking for a quick bite or a leisurely meal, we welcome you to join us and enjoy a relaxed dining experience by the sea. Our menu changes four times a year to reflect the best that nature has to offer, and our commitment to using only local suppliers ensures that every dish we serve is fresh and bursting with flavour.
