Best Fish and Chips: The Scallop Shell

Nothing says Britain better than good old fish and chips, The Scallop Shell is a fine restaurant and seafood grill located in the world heritage city of Bath, serving up traditional favourites on-season, delivered fresh from the coast that same morning. Chips are grown on family farms peeled, freshly cut from only the best spuds and are specially prepared in-house, along with homemade sides and sauces.

The Scallop Shell is proud to be a family-run venture from Garry Rosser, who began his career as a chef in Bath and is proud to be flying the flag for a fresh, sustainable catch from UK waters. Garry can be found front of house most days in the restaurant, which boasts two floors and a beautiful alfresco terrace. The Scallop Shell is open for lunch and dinner every day, apart from Sunday, which is lunch only to allow the team some much deserved rest.

Championing the best of British seafood, the family want to reignite that nostalgic feeling of heritage England, triggering fond memories of trips to the beach for those that grace their doors. They are also passionate about promoting the quality and provenance of their seafood, carefully sourced from small artisan boats who sell their catch at leading markets across the south coast, as well as Peterhead and Tarbert on Loch Fyne.

After a well-received welcome from residents and visitors alike, The Scallop Shell is now taking to the road, with a new food truck that can cater for weddings, festivals and corporate events. Seafood fans will find a variety of dishes fresh from the fryer, from monkfish to fried prawns and classic haddock, each served with freshly cut chips, along with a few more unusual dishes, such as Dorset oysters in an aged shallot vinegar and Loch Duart salmon, served with langoustine bisque.
