THE LOCHSIDE RESTAURANT
Craigard’s Award-winning Restaurant specialises in local seafood, shellfish, meat, cheese and game. The style of cooking and menu design is eclectic and ever-changing (although the perennial Favourites remain!) with a final touch of magic in the painstaking preparation and imaginative presentation.
Chef delights in the fabulous fresh produce available locally, drawing on many influences, and constantly on the lookout for new taste combinations to try.
This close contact with local suppliers means a steady stream of high quality locally landed fresh fish and shellfish; Ifferdale Lamb and Beef reared at Saddell, and Pork from Killocraw Farm, both just a few miles away; Kintyre game, produce and fruit; as well as distinctive smoked produce from the Kintyre Smokehouse. See full list of our local supplier here.
For vegetarian mains we have Chef’s Vege Lasagne, Chilli non Carne or Mushroom Stroganoff and much more. Vegans also have a range of options. As everything is prepared to order, most dishes can be Gluten Free and we do our best to cater for all dietary requirements.
We serve an extensive and varied à la carte menu, along with daily specials. And the desserts are delicious!
Dinner is served daily 6.00PM - 9:00PM.
A hearty breakfast is also of major importance to many people, and Craigard aims to satisfy all dietary requirements - from fresh fruit salad and yogurt, through porridge and a range of cereals, to the Full Monty! which includes acclaimed Stornoway Black Pudding and MacSween's Haggis, as well as the ubiquitous Bacon, Sausage, Mushrooms and Tomato, with Hash Brown or Potato Scone.
Free range eggs and tasty Smoked Haddock, Kippers or Smoked Salmon for Eggs Royale, from Archie's 'Kintyre Smokehouse' nearby, will ensure your day begins well. A full range of Jams, Marmalade, Honey and Preserves also adds that sweet touch.
For that special occasion, you may like to organise an individually crafted menu to suit your own taste or pocket. Chef is very flexible and always delighted to prepare menus to your own specification; or please contact us for a range of dishes you can choose to create your own menu.
Vegetarian, Vegan and Gluten Free breakfast menus can be provided, and we can cater for any intolerance given advance notice. Please advise in advance if there is a particular ingredient or dish you would prefer.
EXTENSIVE WINE AND SPIRITS LIST
Extensive Wine List of Old and New World Wines.
Eclectic range of Gins, Spirits, Liqueurs, Malt Whiskies (Campbeltown & elsewhere) and Local Craft Ales
We have continued our association with Springbank Distillers over the last several years, as the Campbeltown Malts Festival has grown in stature. This has been a very welcome annual event for us, as the week before the late May Bank holiday sees Campbeltown awash with guests from all over the world. Our special whisky themed menu is a delight, and always well-attended.
Unfortunately no Whisky Tasting or competition on the Wednesday this year, but we are still offering the Whisky Theme Menu from Tuesday 24 May until Sat 28 May. Please be sure to book early!
CHRISTMAS/ NEW YEAR
