It can be assumed that whoever started the old wives' tale warning against pairing whisky and oysters just wanted to keep the secret to themselves. The Wild Rover — and those who have ventured through the bar's green door — know better.

The Surry Hills bar is so into oysters it's bringing back its entire week of celebrations dedicated to them for a third year. Its famous lamb sausage roll will be forgotten for the week with a special menu that gives oysters the limelight — and from Monday, October 28 through to Saturday, November 2, you'll be able to slurp down a dozen fresh oysters for $15 (which is just $1.25 a pop).

For the week, the bar will be serving up a special list of whisky-heavy cocktails all featuring Talisker. The exact drinks have no yet been released, but are expected to be posted on the event page imminently.

The mollusc-filled week will also kick off with an oyster and whisky tasting from 6.30–8pm on Monday, October 28. For $30, you'll be able to taste your way through five different Talisker whiskies and slurp down some oysters while chatting to NSW oyster farmer Paul Ryder. Then, the week will wrap up with a two nights of live tunes with The Flying Seamen on Friday, November 1 and Saturday, November 2.
