Lovely fish and chips but a bit expensive. It would have been nice to have had battered haddock (not smoked) on the menu. The deep fried prawns starter were amazing. The waitress was very professional but a bit corporate rather than personable.

I’ve eaten in Fish Restaurants throughout the Country & Europe and that was the best Cod I’ve ever eaten. Muscles were exceptional and the Staff were very friendly and attentive. Brilliant all round value for money. Worth another 100 mile trip .

Delicious cod and chips!! Can’t go for more than two weeks without wanting it again it’s so delicious. Fisherman’s lunch is very good value I think.

We introduced a group of our friends to the Scallop Shell and they loved it too. Being a Saturday evening all tables were full upstairs and down, and yet food and service were as excellent as ever.

Crab, oysters and clams were particularly good but the mussels and prawns were not as good. They were OK but nothing to write home about.

The food was excellent and the drinks were excellent. However we felt that our waiter was not fully informed about the menu when asked questions.

First time at The Scallop Shell and not the last. Staff were polite with smiles on their faces. We were seated upstairs, we were the only ones up there but we didn’t mind. I ordered the John Dory and my wife the lunch time fish and chips. My fish was perfectly cooked and couldn’t fault our plates of food. Looking forward to our next return.
