Very tasty food, but slightly overpriced (£4 for a jumbo sausage), or maybe the I live in is cheap. Didn't quite get what I asked for (did ask for peas but never got any), maybe due to my Welsh accent lol.

Frequent this place quite a lot. Everything is cooked to order. Doesn't have the same polished marketable image as the local competition but don't let that put you off! Generous portions of fresh produce. The fish is fantastic - Love the varieties on offer such as their own spicy batter, the lean batterless masala and of course the standard haddock... More

Amazing service. We were here Friday 30th with our two granddaughters and an aunt. The girl serving,Amanda I think was by herself taking orders and serving and clearing tables. She was amazing.

Tonight we went along to our usually fish and chip shop, The Carron. Being a few minutes after 9pm, it appears we missed the opening hours. The owner confirmed this by abruptly shouting "WE'RE CLOSED!", as we entered the open and well lit up shop. We would try somewhere else... I haven't eaten at The Square in many year, but... More

Huge portions, great service and superb quality. There is nothing not to commend this chippy for. Stonehaven has more than it's fair share of great chip shops, but this is probably the best.

The competition seem to attract visitors by winning awards or displaying large signs above their doors, but actually having tried all of them, more than once, The Square offers the best value for money (i.e. bigger portions), biggest choice and best-tasting food. What more do you want from your local chipper?

Even though there is a large choice of meals, we were greeted really unpleasantly, the staff was absolutely unresponsive and disdainful. We were even granted a really disgraceful comment that I will not cite from the man making the fish&chips. Oh, and thanks for the hair in the burger.

Went to get food here as they do a gluten free batter for the fish. However, the food was very greasy and the batter heavy - we went elsewhere next time.
