Craigard's style of cooking and menu design relies on fresh local seafood, shellfish, meat, cheese, produce and game, with a final touch of magic in the painstaking and imaginative preparation and presentation. Chef delights in
using the fabulous fresh produce this area had to offer. His style is eclectic, drawing on many influences but based on classic dishes. He makes his own bread and rolls, and the inventive daily specials – using the Catch of
the Day - and delightful desserts add an extra dimension to the menu.

He is constantly on the lookout for new taste combinations to try, and recent additions to the menu include starters of Loch Fyne Langoustines with Garlic and Chive Butter; Squat Lobster with Lemon, Ginger and Garlic; McSween's Haggis & Stornoway Black Pudding Tower with Springbank Whisky Sauce - and for Mains: Fresh Kintyre Seafood Platter with Campbeltown 'Old Smokehouse' Smoked and Roast Salmon, Smoked Mussels, Scallops and Langoustines; Or Seafood Medley with Monkfish, Sea Bass, Scallops and Mussels on a bed of Creamy Mash; Rack of Ifferdale Lamb and much more. 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 Campbeltown 'Old Smokehouse'.
Unusual Gigha Fruit and Whisky flavoured cheeses come from Campbeltown's Inverloch Cheese Company, and the outstanding Mull of Kintyre Cheddar is from our local dairy. Both Dairies have recently won Gold Awards for their cheeses. Our eggs come fresh from High Bellochantuy farm nearby, along with vegetables in season - and we are growing our own herbs, rhubarb and apples.  Our dinner menus always include vegetarian options, and we are very happy to offer a selection of at least six vege options on the night – as we recognise that there can often be little choice. We have a range of dishes in our repertoire for vegetarian, vegan and gluten free requirements. All dietary needs can be catered for, given a little advance notice.

A hearty breakfast is also of major importance to many people, and Craigard aims to satisfy all dietary requirements - from fresh fruit salad, grapefruit and granola, through porridge to the Full Monty, which includes the acclaimed Stornoway Black Pudding and McSween's Haggis! Fresh organic eggs from High Bellochantuy Farm, and tasty Smoked Haddock, Kippers or Smoked Salmon, from Archie's 'Kintyre Smokehouse' nearby, ensure your day will start well.
