Dear Friends of THE OARSMAN,

We have made the decision that it will not be viable to open our small courtyard under the current restrictions and satisfy the social distancing regulations to protect our guests during this COVID pandemic.

We anticipate opening when the next set of restrictions are lifted later in May.

We hope you are all keeping well, please stay safe and we will see you in a short while.

Thank you for all of you calls and messages of support.

Very best wishes from Lisa, Chris, Oana, Molly, and all of the Team at the Oarsman xxx


At the Bar

We are starting with a good selection of beers, wines and spirits, just to get us going and as we get a chance to assess demand, we will be adding and possibly subtracting as necessary.

Beers and Ciders – 16 beers on pump and a further 16 behind the bar, plus we do also have a decent selection of low/no alcohol beers and cider for those of you who are driving or looking to keep your wits about you.

Wines – 18 wines by the glass, and premium wines by the bottle, enough to keep the oenophiles happy.

Spirits – A standard and premium range of gins and tonics served with all the right garnishes. Our gin list currently runs at 16, although that number will grow over time. Plus: 17 whiskies, 8 rums and the usual selection of vodkas, brandies and summer deck favourites.
