Went here with my parents, who know the owners, Gregor and Michelle and have had the Sunday carvery lunch before. Three courses for £13.95 is an astonishing price for great food and plenty of it. Two choices of soup, two cold starters followed by brisket of beef, turkey and gammon then two choices of dessert - Apple and Bailey's Sundae... More

We've been here a few times, always a good feed and I enjoy the Punk IPA on draught. Certainly recommended for family visits and as a couple too. A good mixture of locals, families and tourists are usually visiting.

This is my local so it's a bit biased but the staff are friendly and willing to help. They go out their way for tourists and you can't get a better location for visiting Stonehaven. Craft and regular beers available and they make a fine cup of coffee. The food is good and the restaurant is always busy.

Full marks for the staff at this busy hotel, trying to get it modernised as a boutique hotel (well, that's what I think). The rooms are small (we had no.12) but comfy and the bathroom was fine.
