Visiting Stonehaven - never been before and decided on this Fish & Chip restaurant. We went there late afternoon. Both had Cod chips and mushy peas - absolutely delicious. The fish and batter were just right and a good portion. The mushy peas tasted as...More

The chippy in the Square at Stonehaven used to be called "Sandy's" and was always one of our favoured 'Sit-Doon' stops between Abeedeen and Kirriemuir... It's now designated "The Square" Restaurant, upstairs from the chip shop, and has suffered a change of staff, or maybe,...More

Long wait for food whether its busy or quiet. Staff aren't that friendly and their food is very pricey for what it is.

Huge portions, great service and superb quality. There is nothing not to commend this chippy for. Stonehaven has more than it's fair share of great chip shops, but this is probably the best.

The competition seem to attract visitors by winning awards or displaying large signs above their doors, but actually having tried all of them, more than once, The Square offers the best value for money (i.e. bigger portions), biggest choice and best-tasting food. What more do...More
