Disappointed no kids menu anymore. Seems to be that you are trying to deter families which is a real shame.

Disappointed not to sit downstairs where the atmosphere was much better. Fish was lovely and service good friendly.

Good fresh fish cooked perfectly, served well in a great atmosphere with decent wines. It’s better than Fyne because they’re passionate in their interaction with you as a customer. No frills, no smoke and mirrors. Top spot!

After reading amazing reviews of this restaurant I was excited to visit.Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectation. We sat upstairs which was a lovely area decorated lovely. We were given menu and told we need to order ourselves from the area behind. This is disappointing a restaurant like this that you don't get table service. Not the most welcoming or friendly of staff. Beer and drinks over priced. I ordered lemon sole which had very little taste to it. Chips were ok but nothing special. My salad was pleasant. My partner ordered the haddock. He said was a nice light batter but again nothing special for the price. Under whelming. Nobody came to our table to ask how our food was. At the end I wanted to order a pudding. My partner asked for a desert menu to which the waiter disappeared so I gave up on that idea..This place has so much potential but sadly is selling short.

Travelled for a day trip to Bath from London and researched three restaurants and picked the Scallop Shell. Wonderful choice. Great everything. Fish and chips tasted like the old fashioned fish and chips with wonderful batter that didn’t stick like glue to the fish. Very fresh , hot a scrumptious.
