The Scallop Shell launches new bar and terrace
The Scallop Shell opened on Monmouth Place in 2015 and was awarded its first AA Rosette for culinary excellence in March of this year after achieving standards that stand out in the local area, serving food prepared with care, understanding and skill, using quality ingredients. But as if all that wasn’t enough to lure you in, this fabulous fish and chip restaurant and seafood grill has recently announced that its new bar and outdoor terrace is officially open.
Customers can now sit and relax with a drink in the comfortable surroundings of the upper-level bar, where the drinks offering has been extended and the introduction of a weekly-changing cocktail has proved to be a huge success.
The secluded alfresco terrace, complete with quirky nautical-themed décor, is proving to be very popular too: “it’s easy to imagine you’re by the coast rather than in the centre of the city,” says Scallop Shell owner/chef Garry Rosser – and if that’s not good news right now, we don’t know what is!
So, what to eat? Choose from traditional favourites such as lightly battered, flaky cod and haddock, the freshest shellfish plates or the seasonal catch from the early morning coastal markets, which is displayed in a roll-top ice bath in the main restaurant. “Any grilled fish with chips or salad is a great summery option,” suggests Garry, “and our Fisherman’s Lunch special – a choice of three mains, which all come with bread and butter, mushy peas, homemade tartare sauce and a mug of Yorkshire tea – for £10 per person, also offers great value.”
The terrace will be open until the end of British summertime and is covered and heated on days when it’s not so warm – but really, we don’t want to think about that right now, do we? Go on, Piggies: dive in!
