Absolutely agree with the previous comment posted by Camillo D in regards to the lack of hygene. Using bare hands to put toppings on the icecreams after havin just handled money from the previous customer. In any case, ice cream is nothing special, the ice creams look appealing because of all the toppings.

After waiting in a queue for around 30 minutes I was shocked as I watched the 3 shopgirls make up people's icecreams. They put icecream in cones or tubs and then proceeded to put marshmallows, chocolate buttons and various sweets etc on the top with their bare fingers. The same fingers that they had used to handle money. between one... More

I am terribly sorry for your unhappy experience at aunty bettys and thank you for bringing your concerns to our attention. It is aunty bettys policy to wash hands between each customer. This appears to have been overlooked and for that I sincerely apologise. We have hand washing sinks at the ice cream area and sanitising gel for our staff... More

Been one of the first customers through the doors when this place opened and its continued to keep the same high consistent standard. Always busy but worth the wait - great ice cream and service. Only negative sometimes the ice creams running before you get out the door - could be a bit more frozen!

You would easily forget that you queued up for nearly an hour to get your hands on the ice cream when you taste them. Aunty Betty's is simply the world's best. Their staff are even better. Normally handling such crowds, the people behind the tills can easily get frustrated (especially on a gorgeously sunny day). but on the numerous occasions... More

What a wonderful surprise. Have been told about this wee place many times, but never have had the occasion to go to Stonehaven until this afternoon. Queues outside the door constantly - even in the pouring rain!! The toppings are a great addition - made it much more fun. Bought some treats for the dog as well, who incidentally -... More

Cute little ice cream shop with all sorts of treats, including some for dogs. The ice cream was lovely. If they ask "with toppings?" just say yes, you will be surprised! Obviously popular with locals and tourists alike therefore my only suggestion is more staff at peak times.

Bit of a queue but worth the wait. I initially thought £3.00 was a bit pricey for one scoop but what a scoop it was! Massive - I couldn't have managed two! I had the apple pie icecream it was delicious with big chucks of juicy apple - just be careful of the very cheeky seagulls flying overhead who will... More

I love this wee quirky shop - all the traditional sweets, the lovely choice of ice cream - I would recommend salted caramel and pistachio mmmm. Scoop of each with toppings, my husband always has the eton mess - not for the faint hearted!
