Great fish and chips! Although we queued for nearly an hour, it was well worth it. Absolutely delicious. All fried to order, batter light and crispy and chips brilliant!

While visiting Stonehaven to go to Dunottar Castle we decided to try this award winning chippy for tea. It was very good value for money and everything is cooked fresh as you order. Good portion sizes although too much chips for me.

It's alway very busy so be ready to queue. Good food quality fish and potatoes are also nice. Staff is always pleasant. Mind the seagulls, though

Big portions of delicious crispy fish. Quite busy but fast service. No seats inside, only a few outside, so you need to take away. Nice coastal view.

Quite simply the best fish and chips you'll get. There's normally a queue but that's because customers return again and again. The fish is locally sourced and always freshly cooked to order. You can't go wrong with jumbo haddock and chips!

Lengthy que at the shop but this only reflects the quality of the fish. Delish! Friendly staff and food cooked to order.

It is vegetarian. I asked, no lard is used, they use sunflower oil. It is a chippy yes but a more up market one with various other options so whilst I agree is it not a restaurant it is just a really good take away.
