Best of British

Championing the best of British seafood, we want to reignite that nostalgic feeling of heritage England and trigger fond memories of trips to the beach.

We’re passionate about promoting the quality and provenance of seafood from UK shores and carefully source our fish from small artisan day boats who land and sell their catch at leading markets on the south coast, as well as from Peterhead and Tarbert on Loch Fyne.


Chips are cut daily from potatoes from family farms – there’s even a window into the potato room, so you can keep an eye on the action – while sides from mushy peas to curry sauce are all homemade.

We’ll always have a seasonal salad and veg of the day as well as one vegetarian and one classic English fish-free main.

The UPPER Deck Pop Up


We’re delighted to be able to open our first-floor terrace for laid-back dining between 13th April – 15th May.

Our indoor/outdoor space is bathed in light during the day and intimately cosy after dusk. With stone and wood clad walls, twinkly fairy lights and a chilled harbourside vibe, we’re serving up a selection of Scallop Shell favourites and delicious new offerings, which will change with the markets.

While The Upper Deck is heated, the retractable roof will remain open, so we would very much recommend that visitors wrap up warm! It will open Tuesday – Saturday 4.30 – 9.30pm for groups of up to four (due to limited space and social distancing measures) and you can tempt yourself with the sample menu here. 

Main menu

Featuring fresh coastal shellfish to starters and sharers and a selection of grilled and lightly battered fish and chip mains, our main menu changes regularly.

The Scallop Shell is fully licensed and we have a carefully-chosen selection of wines and fizz to complement our dishes, available by the bottle and glass, alongside beer and cider, after dinner drinks and delicious booze-free beverages.

Please note, our eat in restaurant service will return from Tuesday 18th May 2021.


We’re very happy to cater for your little ones and offer half-portion versions of main menu favourites, such as cod and chips and fish cakes made in-house using fresh fish, potatoes and herbs.
