Stonehaven’s Other Claim to Fame

Apart from the Carron Restaurant – see previous post – Stonehaven, via the medium of the Carron Fish Bar, formerly The Haven, is the birthplace of that Scottish culinary delicacy, the deep fried Mars Bar.

Scotland’s Art Deco Heritage 6 (iii). Carron Restaurant Stonehaven Revisited Again

I have featured the Carron Restuarant, Stoneheaven twice before, here and here. At the time these photos were taken the restaurant was shu but it seems it has now reopened, purveying Indian food, trading under the name Carron to Mumbai.

This photo is of the side window on the alley at the left hand side of the imposing frontage of the Restaurant

The canopy of that imposing entrance facing Cameron Street has this side window on to the alley but through it you can see the Art Deco glazing on the canopy itself:-

As I recall this Art Deco mosaic vestibule floor was at the rear entrance to the Carron Restaurant, in Evan Street.

Well I hadn’t photographed it before but I had featured it here. See also my comments of two posts ago.

The Art Deco styling extends to the fencing at the lane to the side:-

Again note the fencing here and on the balcony, plus the lovely circular sweep of the canopy and windows which have very stylish glazing:-

After the Bon Accord Baths I thought I’d stay up north for the latest in this series.

This is an amazing sight. The cafe apparently fell into disrepair in the 1960s but has obviously been updated. I remember seeing an item on the TV once many years back about an Art Deco cafe in Stonehaven that had fallen into disrepair. I suppose this must have been it. What a great job they’ve done.

The street entrance looks like this.

The restaurant’s home page is here.

They claim to have a mirror that may be a work by Picasso! I believe it’s shown in this photo.

The foyer looks like this.

The fanlight parts of the windows are very deco.

The chairs are also in keeping with the Art Deco feel.

What a fantastic place to go and have a meal.
