THere are two "Carrons" in Stonehaven, one is a chip shop which claims ( along with many others) to have invented the deep-fried Mars bar, and the other is this delighful art-deco jewel, serving delicious fresh and local;y sourced food. 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.

Had a mid-week meal for 4 here whilst up in Stonehaven visiting family. Restaurant was quiet, we were given excellent attention. The staff were very efficient, friendly and explained absolutely everything on the menu in great detail. The food was first class. The art deco character of this restaurant is a lovely experience, would be an excellent venue for a... More

There were 3 of us for dinner on a Wednesday night. The restaurant was fairly quiet but a nice atmosphere. Service was excellent and the waitress spent a lot of time explaining the specials, which was useful. There were a lot of locally sourced ingredients. Starters were very good - salmon risotto balls for me. The slow cooked venison for... More

Went for a quiet Tuesday evening meal. The food was great, it was well priced for the quality. The décor was good and the service was great.

Absolutely fabulous staff........no complaints there..(hope they get paid enough) I took the veggie option, sad to say it was a disappointment, perhaps my fault as I do not eat salt. My fellow diners thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Would go again.n

very nice fish and chips and tasty fried Mars bars which apparently started a trend! Well worth stopping there for a meal.

Could not fault the service very professional and attentive from such young ladies, best service in a long time that we have experienced. Very nice food also, we picked from... More

We stumbled across this restaurant quite by chance being strangers to the area and visitors to Stonehaven for the first time. We did not have a reservation but it being lunchtime this did not seem to be a problem and we were shown to a lovely table with a pleasant view of the garden/patio area at the rear of the... More
