We read about this place and decided to visit during a trip to Cullen. We went out of our way to get to Stonehaven but the detour was worth it . The fish and chips were really great. We ate it in the car during...More

Overpriced and full of the belief that they are better than a lot of other places. Fish was OK. Chips not good. and portions not large. They want to up their game a little. 47.5 for 6 people. I just think they are not as...More

What a great place. Take away fish and chips with seating outside. Freshly cooked. Helpful staff. Excellent quality food and they even tell you where they source the potatoes and chips from. Veggie option available too! Highly recommend!

Freshly cooked just for you each time you walk in ensures the very freshest food. Just went for the standard size fish and chips and they were the best we have had in many years. Really amazing. No seating inside but a couple of tables...More

These were the best fish and chips I've ever had! You must try them and sit by the sea to eat them (luckily we weren't bothered by seagulls), for the best taste sensation. The chippy is efficient, clean, friendly and conscious of where they source...More

Perfect! Not being local I thought I wanted cod and chips but what I really wanted was a haddock fish supper. Waited all week for this and it was so worth it

Had a bit of a wait, but all cooked fresh to order and have to say was delicious and worth it. Could chose fish sizes and very clean and professional looking outfit. - worth a visit and only do take away

Undoubtedly the best fish and chips for miles around. Freshly prepared while you wait - at busy times be prepared for a very long wait - on a cold day it’s nice and warm once you get inside the door! Be assured that the food...More

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.
