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

Hadn't been here for years and decided to give it a shot after finding our usual chippie queued out the door....and so glad we did.The haddock was fresh,chunky and succulent, and have to say definitely preferred their chips to our usual takeaway as l like mine more browned and well-cooked rather than pasty offerings.Delighted to have found an alternative place...

I hated the thought of a battered Mars bar...I was wrong. Amazing 😍 a real must if you visit. Chips were great. Big portions and the curry sauce is gorgeous!

Last night we used this place for the third time. We were travelling home from Edinburgh. Wanted a quick fast bite. Stopped in past Stonehaven. The quality of the food in this place is top notch. Excellent breaded haddock suppers. Not greasy. Cooked to perfection. Better than a sit down restaurant meal. Miss this place at your peril.
