The Scallop Shell

The Scallop Shell is a much-loved AA Rosette fish 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. Alternatively, 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 bottle and glass. There’s also a covered and heated nautical-themed terrace for al fresco dining.
