I am not a big fish and chips fan but I must say that their haddock battered is really good. The tartare sauce is perfect and the fries are just right.

This take away fish and chip shop is rather special. It is run like a top end restaurant! The fish is locally sourced and the name of the fishing vessel it comes from is on the board. The fish is from sustainable managed stock. The staff approach is excellent and efficient. The result was first class fish and chips ...... More

popped in for a fish supper takeaway. I was quickly served although reasonable busy and my order was freshly cooked, staff were friendly & courteous a credit to the establishment and the fish supper was top drawer. There was also a good variety of items which could be purchased, highly recommended if you are in the area

Just back from a weekend at Stonehaven staying on the caravan site to the north of the town ( Queen Elizabeth caravan site). I can recommend the chip shop on the promenade. Friendly, cheerful staff serving despite the queue out the door. Food cooked to order so fresh and very tasty.

We're regulars here and have always enjoyed our battered haddock and scampi. However, of late, we've noticed that the scampi seems a lot smaller than it once was. £5.50 for eight very small pieces of scampi does seem a bit steep. I know they're Amity langoustines, the best you can get apparently, but once you bite through the batter you... More

Despite the 45minute wait in the queue the fish supper was perfect. Fresh, crispy, chunky tasty chips. The fish was white and flaky with a crisp fresh batter.

Highly recommend trying this place. Unbelievable gorgeous fresh and really tasty. Polite friendly staff. Extensive menu! Kids meals. Was a very busy establishment well worth a visit and the wait. They have a fab system for service and the fish stocks are complaint with regulations. Loved the Haddock!
