Was highly recommended by friends. Knowing it was about to close had to visit. Phoned and though fully booked they managed to find a slot. Shared starter which they gave us on two plates was plenty. Mains of scallops and of haunch of venison really tasty. A shared desert of a nutty sticky toffee pudding was to die for. With... More

We returned to the Carron Restaurant in Stonehaven for a second visit within three months in the week the owners announced they were closing the restaurant, after failing to find a buyer. What a shame, as we have had wonderful meals there and Saturday was no different. As with our last visit, I had reserved the window table for 4... More

We had lunch on the verandah on friday and enjoyed the sunny environment and outlook over the paved garden. Delicious home made bread and a good wine list. I had the baked crab which was delicious with a generous portion of unusual and tasty vegetables. Service was good up until we were on the point of ordering coffee but we... More

Both have their appeal, but clearly you should avoid confusing one for the other.The decor is charming, if this place... More

This chippie is rated amongst the top 50 in Britain & so it should be, we have tried other chippies in Stonehaven & don't come in the same league.
