We stumbled here before the fireballs on new years eve/hogmanay and so glad we did. A large selection menu of cooked to order delicious food. We had haddock and chips and one person tried the haggis pudding - all were lovely and very reasonably priced.

The staff was very friendly with three crazy Americans barraging them with questions about the area. The fish and chips were awesome! Fresh fish and perfect chips in generous portions.

Called in before fireballs and we really enjoyed the very fresh chips plus amazing battered mars bar. Friendly quick service and very well organised.

Having spent many years in the US, although this is a takeaway food shop, this is the opposite of a US takeaway. The fish is cooked to order, as are the chips. There are signs up telling the customer where the day's fish came from, the source and type of potatoes used to make the chips. The food is not... More

One of the best Fish&Chips I've tried in Scotland! If you dare, also try the deep fried Mars bar... but prepare to have your senses blown... and your arteries clogged! An obligate stop if you go to Stonehaven!

Very busy but worth while for taste and value for money. They now have opened a second outlet of equal worth at Redcloack in Stonehaven just off the road out to Banchory.

Home of the deep fried mars bar, or at least it is the birth place and my 1st try of one. Had to be done and I must say I did enjoy it. We ordered a lot as friends and although it was slightly pricey it was very good and extremely busy which says a lot about the place. Food... More
