Colchester Native Oysters

A true delicacy, Colchester native oysters are harvested between September and March from the shallow creeks off Mersea Island in Essex, situated north of the River Thames. The area's unique marsh-fringed environment contributes to the oysters’ unparalleled richness and salty freshness, making them one of the season’s most sought-after luxuries.

These Colchester natives have been hand-selected by our specialist supplier, James Knight of Mayfair.


Food is best enjoyed when shared. Find out more about group reservations at Whitcomb’s.

Our Produce

The dishes we serve were all born out of a passion of premium grade ingredients found in the French culinary tradition. Working closely with premium greengrocers Le Marché and family butchers Aldens, our produce is carefully handpicked from independent farmers that deliver on quality, consistency and flavour.

Our Wine

Our sommeliers have curated a wine list that spans the entire world. Paying special tribute to France, Whitcomb’s serves various expressions by region, featuring some of the greatest vintages of Bordeaux. We also serve selected fine wines by Coravin, including Tignanello and Puligny-Montrachet.

Les Cocktails

Our innovative mixologists have designed a cocktail journey to enhance the dining experience. From light and floral to sharp and rich, each cocktail is individual yet complementary, perfectly balanced with the flavours of our menu.
