Marking its 21st anniversary with a year of events, Gamba is kickstarting the celebrations with Oyster Happy Hour which launches tomorrow.

Guests can attend between 5 and 7pm to enjoy their Lindisfarne rock oysters with passionfruit and chilli for only £1 a shuck with a glass of wine or fizz. 

Established in 1998 and run by top chef Derek Marshall, the seafood institution is renowned for serving locally-sourced, fresh and sustainable dishes and continues to attract both customer and critic acclaim.

Evening Times:

Recent accolades include the 2020 Michelin plate and inclusion in the Good Food Guide for 2020 and has been a previous winner of the Caterer’s UK seafood restaurant of the year and the Scottish Thistle Award for the best restaurant in Scotland.

Derek Marshall chef-patron of Gamba said: 

“November marks a landmark year and what better way kick off our celebrations than by enjoying fresh rock oysters for £1 a shuck.

“We wanted to give something back to our guests for the support over the last 21 years and we’ve got big plans to celebrate over the next 12 months.” 

Early next year, the restaurant is also planning ‘Gamba Gives Back’, a concept which will see Derek donate his time to host practical skills workshops with any school, community or restaurant that would like to develop their team or learn more about cooking with seafood. 

Complimentary Scottish tablet is available to anyone who enjoys a midweek lunch between 12 and 2:30pm in November.

Derek explains: “I’ve always been passionate about working with seafood all my career and in particular how you can create delicate dishes and balance flavours. 

"Reaching 21 years at Gamba is a great achievement for me and I would like to extend my experience to those in the industry or in schools to help chefs and young people learn to cook more with incredible Scotland seafood.” 

Oyster Happy Hour runs Monday to Friday between 5 and 7pm until the end of the year and complimentary tablet is available to anyone who enjoys a midweek lunch between 12 and 2:30pm in November.
