Carradales – The place to dine in Kintyre
News April 9, 2019
Steve, our classically trained professional Chef of 40 years creates wonderful tasty dishes with the very best and freshest of Kintyre’s local ingredients. The freshest of seafood from Tarbert and Campbeltown and highland beef reared right here in Kintyre. We also have a local forager who foragers local ingredients.
Steve creates a seasonal menu. His style is classical with a modern twist. There are always the old favourites and a couple of specials. The feedback has been excellent and guests continue to come back time and time again.
We are proud to be “Taste Our Best” accredited from Visit Scotland. This is a quality assurance scheme which ensures that you always get the best of Scottish food and drink.
This means Quality ingredients of Scottish provenance; fresh seasonal produce; local food; food miles kept to a minimum; information on where your food has come from; friendly staff who will know about the origins of the food on your plate and at least 40% of the Scottish produce will be highlighted on your menu. Steve will happily tell you all about it. His passion really shows!
Our dining room is bright and inviting and like the whole house, has been tastefully refurbished with a large window with views towards open countryside. There is a traditional log burner to make it extra snug in the winter.
An intimate dining experience awaits you or we can cater for that special occasion for up to 10 people. We also have a fine selection of wines from the award- winning Wood Winters. Our house wine white wine is Sibiliano Grillo and House Red, Sibiliano Nero d’Avola from Italy. We have some wonderful wines from Chile, France, Spain, Australia, Argentina and New Zealand. Feedback has been exceptional. We will also be adding some extra special wines to enjoy on those long Summer days.
Our Champagne is Taittinger NV Brut!
Local spirits include Kintyre Gin, Springbank, Glen Scotia and Glengyle whiskies with beers from Loch Fyne.
Our Dining experience offers a small a la carte menu. Steve’s day usually starts with him making homemade bread such as Tomato and Basil, Campbeltown Cheese and Thyme granary multi seed which is proving to be very popular.
Guests are welcome to relax in the lounge in front of the open fire with a coffee or a wee dram of one of the finest of local whiskies or gin.
From mid January we started serving light lunches which has gone down well and we are looking to landscape the garden so that our guests can relax in the warmer days.
Our Dining Room is also open to non- residents. It is advisable to book for evening meals, though not necessary for lunch.
We would like to point out that the terms of our licence state that we can not allow anyone under 18 on to the premises.
We look forward to welcoming you!
