Whilst the food and service was very good, it was most disappointed that we had to sit in a very cold restaurant and with our coats on to keep warm. At the same time the seating was a little cramped so all in all these points distracted one from what should have been a pleasant experience.

Now understand the mixed reviews. We arrived too late to sit in so took a carry out. Pleasant service but food v disappointing.Breaded fish must have been fried at least twice - coating very dark and hard, fish not great. Chips medium sized and greasy at best, many very small, thin and hard. Husband's steak pie was rated "good", otherwise this would have been a 1 rating. Overall a waste of money. Will not be back.

The food was cooked freshly when ordered, with both the fish and chips nicely cooked. The staff were friendly and the price, given the good size of the portions, was very reasonable. The fish could have done with a slightly lighter batter, but other than this a very pleasant meal.

Good break between Ellon and Dundee by the coast road. Better than average chippie. Pleasant, clean premises, Staff pleasant and efficient. 2 pensioner's breaded haddock suppers with tea / coffee and bread & butter for £10.00 is good value. Breaded fish fresh and nicely cooked. Good chips, not greasy. Food served on fish shaped platters. Would skip on the white bread and marg next time. Tea and coffee OK

Would go back

I have been a regular customer for many year of the Bervie chipper, it has been a bit hit or miss over the years....but today was the final straw! My fish supper was in edible and went straight in the bin! To pay £6 for such rubbish was a disgrace and I shall NEVER return. The fish was fried to within an inch of its life, it was like a lump of rubber, the batter was rock solid and couldn't be cut with a knife, so say it was well done is an understatement! I was going to take it straight back and complain but decided the bin was the only place for it.
The staff also need to learn some manners, the young woman who served me could certainly do with some training!
All in all a disgraceful experience and they should be ashamed of the quality of the 'food' they sell!
