The Scallop Shell on Monmouth Place is a much-loved AA Rosette fish and chip restaurant, serving lightly battered and grilled fish and chips and seasonal seafood. Flying the flag for a fresh, sustainable catch from UK waters, the menu changes daily depending on the coastal landings, with at least 15 species of fish and shellfish displayed for customers to see in an ice-filled roll-top bath. Opt for the daily Fisherman’s Lunch special, with a choice of mains all served with mushy peas, tartare sauce, bread and butter and a mug of proper Yorkshire tea for just £10, or make it more of a foodie experience with shared shellfish plates or the likes of oysters followed by whole lemon sole or skate wing, with a great selection of wines sold by the glass. There’s a covered heated terrace for al fresco dining and a bar area where you can enjoy a drink if you’re waiting for a table.
