No! Not the movies! A very nice meal out with good service. We had 2 very tasty courses washed down, in my case, with a beer from a good selection. J2O for my lovely lady. Lovely setting. Lots of space. Only minor grievance was the slightly nouvelle cuisine portions.

What an amazing place. Built in the1930s and tastefully restored to that period the Carron is well worth a visit even if only for a short lunch. The food and service was faultless with a good choice of dishes. Despite being Scotland their gin menu is worthy of exploration. If you want somewhere different if you are visiting Stonehaven, the...

Took my partner for his birthday dinner & yet again was absolutely first class! We both had scallops which were simply divine followed by fillet steak which again, is the best I've ever tasted! Absolutely beautiful dining room,attentive staff, without being overbearing. Good value for money, will definitely be back soon.

The Carron is a fantastic Art Deco building in Stonehaven and is a historic part of the town. The restaurant has recently been taken over and it gets a huge thumbs up from us. The inside is as it's always been and I'm pleased nobody has tried to change it. The menu is superb, a few very solid expertly crafted... More

There was supposed to be a tasting menu evening, which happily coincided with our wedding anniversary so we decided to book that. It was £40 per person for 5 courses. Unfortunately the evening had to be postponed and they phoned and asked if we could make the new date. I explained that we had a baby sitter booked so could... More

We used to dine at the Carron restaurant often before the previous owners sold up and new owners eventually re-opened the restaurant again after a spell of closure. Friends who have dined recently report very mixed reports. This was our first visit back under the new ownership, and we were using a discount voucher which gives two people two courses... More

Travelled to The Carron on the train from Aberdeen and used a Groupon Voucher. On arrival we loved the retro surroundings and Art Deco decor. On arrival we approached the main desk and were pointed towarards a table that had been set for us and told we could choose any table if we didn't like this one. Without sounding like... More

We had a lovely meal and the staff were very welcoming and attentive. Beautiful surroundings and outlook to the garden. There were four people dining and everyone enjoyed their meal. Would highly recommend and will be going back soon.

My wife and I had taken a drive to Stonehaven and decided to try The Carron for lunch because we'd heard good things. Although we only had a light lunch, we weren't disappointed. Nice friendly staff, quick service (with a smile), very tasty food and good value for money. I'd certainly recommend it to anybody that is in the area... More

I have visited the Carron Restaurant on several occasions and have always had excellent service, a good choice of menu and great wine. I would thoroughly recommend the restaurant to anyone looking to dine out well in a lovely art deco building.
