The Scallop Shell opens the doors to new extended restaurant
Diners at The Scallop Shell, a fish & chip and seafood grill and takeaway based on Monmouth Place in Bath, are now able to climb the staircase to a newly renovated first floor extension to the restaurant.
Heralding a new phase for The Scallop Shell, and after a period of refurbishment and investment in the business, the team have unveiled a new look for dine-in guests.
Downstairs, customers will be able to see in to The Potato Room to see chips prepared on a daily basis, and spot a new staircase leading to the exciting extension upstairs where they will also find a terrace area which will developed ready for the Summer.
A mixture of high table, banquette and booth-style seating awaits diners upstairs interspersed with features such as eye-catching tiling, portholes, creative wallpaper, copper piping round the hand-basin and lighting features such as a beautifully lit oak beam. There is also a second display bath for the restaurant purely for delicious and fresh coastal shellfish enabling diners to pick their own seafood feast to devour – a new addition to the menu.
Garry Rosser, chef/owner at The Scallop Shell said: “We’ve been incredibly excited about sharing the new extension with our customers. It’s been an investment for us and a labour of love for the team. There’s a great vibe about the upstairs area and we love all the design elements of the new restaurant which, as an extension to our seating numbers, will mean that customers’ wait time for tables is reduced. We’re loving our second display bath too showing off the beautiful fresh shellfish which is predominantly from UK fisheries. We hope this will spark more conversation about the abundance of fantastic seafood from our own shores.”
HPH Ltd has been instrumental in helping the Scallop Shell with its transformation, assisting with design and obtaining planning consent and then project managing both the structural work and the fit out delivering a turn key solution.
Lindsay Holdoway, Managing Director of HPH Ltd said, “We’re pleased to have been able to help the Scallop Shell to effectively expand their already thriving business to accommodate more customers.
“One of the main challenges of this scheme was to implement the changes whilst keeping the existing restaurant operational and keeping the number of days closed to a minimum, causing as little disruption as possible.
“HPH and the Scallop Shell have worked together from inception to planning to delivery to ensure that this transformation has happened as efficiently as possible and to a high standard.”
