Excellent fish and chips. The chips were well cooked, nice and crispy and not greasy. The fish is freshly cooked and can be fried in breadcrumbs if required. My fish was brilliant, and very very tasty.

The fish was excellent, as was the special of the day, the langoustines.The chips were pretty good, but not the best I tasted compared to other fish and chip places.

The coleslaw and pineapple left something to be desired.

It's only takeout and there are a few benches (but not many) where you can sit and eat.

The food is freshly cooked to order and always top quality. Their fish is the best I have ever tasted and the batter is really light and crisp. The chips are perfect too, they even display everyday what potatoes their chips are being made from.

They pride themselves in selling responsibly sourced fish and it shows, they often have different types for sale that you don't see elsewhere.

There's always a huge que, but it moves quickley so it's worth waiting.

My wife and I moved to England a year ago and we have scoured the island for the best fish and chips. Our journey took us to the little town called Stonehaven (near Aberdeen in Scotland) and right next to the water a little place called The Bay. It was Monday, the line was long (always a good sign!). I ordered a jumbo haddock and my wife a standard one. The minute I opened the box I knew I came to the right place. The fish was a foot long, made to order. I took my first bite and the steam and juices just oozed out of the flesh. Great fish? Indeed. The chips were excellent too (my wife ate all of hers and she is only 5' 4). We would definitely go back there again even though we live in London and Stonehaven is a bit out of the way. The place is seriously into sustainable food which is good/bad because you are not going find cod there, at least at the time when my wife and I were there.
