Unfortunately it seems that the Boathouse is no longer open. I'm pretty sure it happened in the terrible floods earlier this year in Stonehaven. We went hoping for the usual fantastic brunch, but it was boarded up. This isn't indicated on the website unfortunately. Real...More

We've yet to try it for an evening meal, but it's one of the nicest places in Stonehaven to watch the sea and have a hot drink. Good for sandwiches too.

Dinner was a private function and food was simple but of very high standard. Everyone (23 of us) enjoyed their dinner. Service was attentive, friendly but not intrusive. On top of all this is the excellent view of Stonehaven Bay on a summer evening, watching...More

Our favourite place for a girls lunch in Stonehaven. Lots of choice of sandwiches and soups, plus daily choice of fishcakes, quiche and specials. Traybakes are huge, very tasty and home-made. Amazing views, especially on a horrible windy day, watch the waves jump the harbour...More
