MacCallum’s of Troon
Long-standing fishmongers-run seafood restaurant on the harbourside at Troon.
Taking advantage of its proximity to the local fishing fleet on the harbourside at Troon, the Oyster Bar is a long-standing seafood restaurant run by renowned fishmongers MacCallum’s of Troon, where freshness is guaranteed. Based in an old pumping station, with a much-loved fish and chip shop next door (the Wee Hurrie), they specialise in the fruits of the Scottish sea (oysters in particular), as well as a wide selection of poultry and game, with as much of their produce as possible sourced locally, while the menus will shift with the seasons.
