Visiting friends and ate here two nights in a row. The fòod and service was excellent, the first we sat in the bar and the second we were in the restaurant. Great view of the harbour. Will certainly be back.

Four of us were there last night. Had a sharing garlic bread starter, really good with salsa and balsamic vinegar. Really nice 'normal' complimentary bread. Three of us had the carbonate which was excellent and no 4 had the bean cassoulet special which was of equal excellence. Very efficient and attentive service. Very busy so a must book at the...

Haven't been to the Marine in years, but thoroughly enjoyed it. The restaurant upstairs was busy, but the service, atmosphere and most importantly the food was excellent. Special mention goes to the garlic bread sharer starter - not had it before, but really enjoyed it. The carbonnade was top notch as well.

I regularly stay at the Marine Hotel due to work commitments in Stonehaven. All of the bar staff are friendly and talkative, the rooms are comfortable and clean. Most importantly, with a wealth of regional breweries to choose from, the beer is superb. The food is also exceptional, with the fish being a must-have.

Visited with a group of friends. The service was slow and one waitress with short red hair was extremely surly and almost threw the starters across the table. Food was very good but service could have been one hundred times better. Won't be back.

Busy Scottish pub serving food at meal times. Rooms available, but the climb up the stairs is steep and long to the top floor. Parking is pot luck if you want to be outside, there's a dark quiet car park across the harbour.

First time here and took some family that were visiting. I throughly enjoyed both my starter and main which was lentil soup and the haddock. My partner also had the haddock and thought it was one of the best he'd ever had. The salmon skink was interesting and came served in a round loaf of bread (bread bowl) which impressed... More

I had a lunch here, one of my regular haunts when visiting Stonehaven. I never consult the menu here, I always have fish and chips. Nice piece of fish, light batter, lots of lovely chips, lemon , and tartare sauce. No vegetables required! Very tasty, great service. Well worth a visit.

While visiting Stonehaven for the night in November we stayed in the Ship Inn but even on a Saturday night the bar was completely empty with no atmosphere so we popped next door to the Marine Hotel... what a difference ! The place was crammed full of people having a great time and within two minutes of entering, several of... More

It is situated in old harbour with a few tables outside. It is astonishing pleasure in good weather to sit here, take snacks and good beer, cider or coffee with snacks of main dishes which are really tasty. Inside it is verry charming too, with old gurniture bar, smal windows. Variety of beer and cider kinds. It made an impression... More
